Short answer is yes, but not quickly. Had real trouble in both heels in 2011, culminating in my only DNF in an ultra. Had marble-like lumps in both tendons. I have done heel dips and rehab exercises on a daily basis since, and following a slow and sensible comeback have had no trouble since. The marble-like lumps disappeared too.
I had made the classic mistake of upping my mileage too quickly.
Boring advice, but slow and steady will see you through. And keep stretching those tendons. Best of luck.
My wife did this race last year, over two days. She liked it a lot. It was well-organised and friendly, with more support than expected in various remote locations. She used back-to-back long slow training runs on alternate weekends, with shorter tempo sessions the other weekends. This routine got her round in good condition.
I'm not Ted Wilson, I'm Judith Wilson, the subscriber! My husband is a race organiser through RW but not a subscriber.
Since he started doing this, I have disappeared from the site and his details pop up by default. I am an avid follower of the forum but can only read, not contribute - unless I pretend to be him! Surely we are not the only RW couple?
I tried several times to get this sorted out, but nothing happened and I've more or less given up!
Though last time we tried to change it, his online race entries mucked up.
Surely we can have a login each without subscribing twice? Help.
Anyone out there got knee problems like this? A couple of months ago both knees got quite stiff and sore all over. No specific location for the pain at that time, and don't know what triggered it off. The condition has eased off quite a lot, but am still feeling pain above the knees, to the insides and behind. It does not feel like bone pain but some kind of soft tissue problem, and it eases off while exercising. Does anyone know what this is, and what to do about it?
