Nell - sorry, I'm trying to man up ! Glad to hear the foot is better, maybe you could get Mrs Nell to give you a foot massage each evening ??
PS - I thought you said you were buying some fell trainers ? You wouldn't need them to run along the river or canal. Unless I have completed made that up of course ! You should give off road running in the dark a go, it really is rather exhilarating, make sure you know the route you run though so you don't get lost ! How did you get on at the podiatrist ? Did you go because you are injured or is it just for maintenance purposes, in the same way as a sport massage ?
Marathon session number 2 done at lunchtime. It was meant to be 5 miles along the canal with 3 @ tempo pace. Due to the blocked nose and difficulty in breathing (see above re me manning up) I could only manage 2 of the 5 miles at tempo pace.
I have also started back with my stretches and rollering as the knee has been telling me recently that I should. That flippen roller doesn't half hurt when you haven't used it for a while.
