Cheers Dan but due to working away I've missed the deadline. Gutted,
@ Cougie, not sure anyone's said its an issue and clearly I don't need the disabled parking so your irrelevant comment is wasted on me.
Hi all, was wondering whos done the Liverpool half and what its like for a first half marathon. Ive done some research and all seems very good with some excellent feedback from all abilities.
If anyones done it maybe you can answer the following... The carparks id use for the event might be out of use as the roads are cleared for the half, to that end is parking laid on by the organisers or do i need find alternative parking and run the risk of having to walk to and from the car pre and post race, Not the ideal but if thats the only option so be it.
So it turns out i made a grave error purchasing some new and wrong trainers. i didnt realise they were support trainers and wasnt told online either. Lesson learnt. Im now wearing K Swiss tubes which are amazing. However i now have the problem of whenever i get into a good routine i seem to get injured in some way which is really putting a dampener on things. Ive had dramas with my right knee for some time but its usually with weight (military) and around the 6 mile point however recently its trainer runs and 3 to 4 miles in. Ive purchased a foam roller as ive been diagnosed with a fascia tissue problem so hopefully i can work on it. All i want to do is train for the cheshire half in Nov. Its my first so i want to impress myself.
Helen, your exatly right, if im in pain i need to do something to ease it, ie running or x trainer. if i sit and let it rule me it gets worse, problem is, although it eases the pain whilst doing the exercise it comes back with a vengeance the folowing morning. No win situation.
