I have not heard of this but came back over 3 weeks ago from a marathon. My ankle had swelled up about 2 days later and was painful. After a sleepless night went to A and E and was told it was a sprain. After being in pain for another 3 weeks went to an urgent care centre. The nurse suspected damage and I was sent away with crutches and told to rest ankle. They felt plaster not needed especially as injury was 3 weeks ago. I have not been told it is a cortical fracture which I think is a bit of bone attached to a ligament. Anyone know about recovery time of these and will then have to work out healing time, physiotherapy programs etc before running again. I have been referred to a fracture clinic so looks like there will be no more running for a while.
I presume I have Laryngitis, as have had problems with my voice since Monday. My voice is hoarse and struggling to talk to people. Am due to do a marathon on Sunday having trained fairly intensely. I am going abroad for this on Friday and thinking I will still go and review on Saturday how I am feeling. There is a half marathon though really wanted to do the marathon. Most of the symptoms are above the neck but did wake up with a cough. Am concerned about this now though.
I bought Red and Dead glasses from Specsavers and paid for reaction lenses. They are great for running and can choose the tint. The only problem is when running from sunshine into a tunnel as take a while to readjust.
Entered at 1.00 a.m never got in before. Only run one marathon in the past though training for another one but no where near a good for age time. I put down my previous marathon result but presume it does not matter and if someone wants to plod the course in 7 hours and raise money for charity they will get a place.
I am looking for around 3 hrs 50 minutes.. I did a half marathon a few weeks ago in 1.45 and have since run a 16 miler and the slower 18 miler along with shorter runs. I am planning 20 miler this Friday and 20 miler incorporating a half marathon at slower pace on 27th April 2014. The marathon is the 18th May so will then start to taper from 27th April 2014.
