Huge congratulations Sarah so well done. Worth all the late night runs it's taken a massive effort and committment to get all the training it but you've done it and you can savour this moment along with the creme egg!!!
Hi Mel, it's the dreaded taper playing mind games with you!! I'm in the process of keeping my friend going who is doing Brighton and just started hers, she says she can't run at all!! She has done all the training and more. It's good to read up on the taper as it gives you all the physiological reasons why you feel bad after decreasing your running, I'm Sam can go into more detail.
You wil be fine and have a great time, the work is done the body is ready enjoy!!
Hey Wiggly worm, Sam beat me to it and said most of what I would say. Normally if both achilles sore then you are generally stiff and tight get a massage to release the calfs etc, strech and rest a bit more till your body feels less physically tired. good news is they have settled.
