Barley - With numbers I think don't book Revolution and if people are still coming then we can go somewhere really nice for dinner instead. Then go for drinks. I think that'seasier and would suit more people (remember Melli is a celiac).
I have not been in here for what feels like an AGE! I'm shamefully coming back in here to ask some advice from friends and knowledgeable folk!
So this year has been really tough. In December I got injured at the start of marathon training. Injury went undiagnosed by a plethora of different people and in the mean time I did endless 'return to running' programmes - not getting further than 3 miles without pain. I did a lot of walking, walk/run and loads of cycling, but it never healed. 8 months later in August I found out it was actually a stress fracture and was ordered to take all weight off it for at least 3 weeks! Luckily it was the school holidays which made it easier (but no fun). I am now back on my feet walking and I've just been to see a podiatrist for a consulation, just to see if there was anything mechanically wrong. He basically said I have one neautral foot and one which pronates (the one which had the SF). It's quite obvious when he showed me alignment, and coupled with the fact I've had issues with trainers in the past, I'm inclined to agree. I have run in Brooks Adrenaline (moderate support) for the last few years and have generally been okay. He suggested taking moulds and getting orthotics to correct foot alighment. Has anyone got any experience of having custom ones? You read so much about them being a 'waste of time', not to mention being expensive, but I guess everyone's experiences differ. I am looking for a bit of advice as I really don't know what to do! I have been rather miserable for most of 2013 as I haven't been able to run, well not properly. I'd give anything to be be healed and back to it. Do I wait and see if foot alignment causes me more problems in the future? Or try the orthotics route now, when I will be starting to run again (*crosses fingers*).
