1st physio appointment.

MCL exactly what I thought, but also some suspected cartridge damage and as expect I had really screwed it in January.

But. he reckons if I cut back a lot I can keep plodding along 15 miles per week if that doesn't hurt to much spread over 3-5 short runs. Hey that's not bad
Basically I was right I had nearly healed it and just got carried away and done to much to soon.

So slow n sensible (and flat) I think it was probably going over the stiles on Saturday that irritated the knee again.

I'm glad it doesn't fit properly. It makes sure I never wear it outside. I would have preferred a cotton t/s so I could wear it in bed. I cringe whenever l see someone wearing a t/s from a race go by. The only time it is appropriate to wear it is just after the race. My biggest nightmare would be to arrive at the Exell next year to see everyone wearing this years t/s.

I quite often wear technical t-shirts from races, it's cheaper than buying a new top more money to spend on other running stuff.

Waiting for the first comment about maybe having a good new coach heading their way sometime...

Well that was pathetic.  After 15miles i was just hobbling along again, same old knee issue that I thought was nearly fixed.  Insert a lot of swear words here.....

So now i've just given up trying to do it myself with my DIY random running plan to look after the knee and i've booked a physio appointment for this evening. Fingers crossed this isn't going to get to expensive, but hey, just letting it plod along wasn't working so gotta do it properly.

Are Hoka for me?

I think the only person who can decide if they are suitable for you, is you.

Others can say if they like or don't like them, 'suitable' well if you have 2 feet then yes, they are probably 'suitable'.

Are they good for you, no idea, buy a pair and find out.

That's the sort of thing i was thinking about Turns out that between my house and my office which is approx. 400 meters there is a archery shop! So next week when I get a chance i'll go in and look at their cheapest quivers

Starting again from the beginning!

I think pronation can change over time, so I think it's always worth getting it checked every few years. 

The more mileage you do I reckon the more it smooths itself out over time.

5km very, very gently tonight. Some can walk quicker  37 minutes. It was really hot out there, and that raises my heart rate even when going very gently.

well next time I go for a run it's Nomad Ultra starting at 6am Saturday, so I have to be up seriously early!! Eeeeek

Yeah that's the thing I want a method to do them whilst walking otherwise I will end up not bothering
