Yes, LFR...I will check in nearer the time to see if you're running it and if so, at least try and spot you. Koala, don't jinx it, I'm returning from a nasty leg break Touch wood, it's going OK (apart from the PF and a bunion!)
LFR - I've been getting a touch of Plantar F too. I find the short compression socks help a bit. And...I also have a York Marathon place. I entered when my leg was still in plaster to cheer my self up. Seemed like a good idea at the time! It will be a minor miracle if I complete the distance within the course closing time I will have to do walk/run strategy if I turn up for it. I wouldnt bother with being injured for so long, but my daughter will be at the Uni where race HQ is, so it is an oportunity to visit and get a medal at the same time
Good point, Westy – my gait probably has changed post injury. Thanks for the other tips folks. I do let it ease off a bit and it settles, but it’s sort of there, lingering in the background along with this planta facilitis thingy.
I've got my London GFA in too (deferred from last year).
Hmm, a Wenty-Andrews love child…what have I missed??!!
Hey, how y’all doing? What’s all this talk about scorchio weather??!! Cloudy and dull in Isle of Man
Just thought I’d give you a little update on my mangled ankle. Toot toot I am now running (slowly) 3 times a week with a ‘long’ run at the weekend. I am up to 11 miles, with a view to completing my local half in August. I am nowhere near my old paces and don’t have full mobility in my ankle joint (possibly never will), but I am getting by, adapting to the new style of running (with a limp).
Any thoughts on an Achilles niggle? Touch wood, I have never had trouble with my Achilles, but on my injured side it is a bit dodgy and I think I have a bit of plantar fasciitis…this all seems to have happened after doing a gazillion heel raises in rehab. I’ve ditched the heel raises and the Achilles has eased a bit. Anyone else had a similar achillies/PF combo and if so, what did you do?
PS – Andrews, have you been watching The Island Games much? (You’re Jersey, aren’t you?).
