Paris Marathon 2016

Posted: Yesterday at 13:41

Just did a nice half marathon round Perth. Lovely scenery and finished at the beach. Had no idea that we even had hills like that!! Took me by surprise really but got an ok time anyway. Happy result.

Came across the line promising myself that I would never, ever do a full marathon on that course. But then I saw the medals for the full ( massively larger and shinier than the ones for the half !!) and now I have a severe case of medal envy and I just know that I so have to do the full next year!  Shallow?  Me? Surely not!!

It's those Really Tight Calves Again.

I had a couple of Physio appointments and then at the last one asked her if she could train my husband to take over because we were going travelling. She was happy to train him in how to massage the knots out of my calves and also how to tape my legs if needed. Maybe you could try something similar? Do you have a spouse or someone else who could attack your legs for you for free?

Please tell me the swim is indoors... Edinburgh, Jan 1st.....hardly bears thinking about! Then again, it'll be 38 deg C here and I'll be at the pointy end of a training plan. Not sure whether I'm entirely wise either!   Good luck. Have fun!

Hello one and all! Been reading with interest. I did VMLM this year using 2.15:45 and finished strong in 4:53. Just signed up for e coaching and currently trying 30:30 for long runs.

Thanks Glenn, looks like the width of my foot may prove to be a bigger problem, not sure I'll even get them on!

Thank you Pixie, Thank you Recovery Runner, just the sort of helpful suggestions I was looking for.  Clearly I shall need to make my own decision, but it is still helpful to hear from others experiences. I really appreciate the positive approach which you have both taken, you make this forum better.

Brilliant feedback folks, thank you! 

Think I might toddle off to Hoka World today and try a pair for the heck of it. However I am rather concerned about the 4mm drop. It'll have to be a very gradual transition if at all. Thanks again.

I'm a slow, novice marathon runner who is prone to tight calves. Not getting younger but feeling ok! 

Please does anyone have any thoughts on whether Hoka are suitable for me? Just about to go shopping and my current favourites have been discontinued so I need to branch out of my comfort zone ( Saucony Hurricane 15)
