TT -- it's only the second time I've tried the hot melt glue (from Maplin). First time was to try and put studs back on some XTalons (dismal failure -- fell off again). But this time it has stuck, but immediately looks a bit worn. So the jury is still out. But like you, I get just one place where the soles get badly worn, and it seems wasteful to bin the whole shoe just for that. I'm copying my dear departed eccentric mother -- worryingly I do so more and more with time, it seems...
TR -- nice one on the prize voucher.
Bit of a relapse I fear. I was feeling quite cocky about my week off having sorted me out, and running was fine really on Tues until I trod hard on a stone right near the end. But yesterday I noticed a tight piriformis again in about 5 hours of driving, and my foot started twinging a bit in the night. Did a minimal run to work this morning but it's definitely dodgy again. I don't know whether to try some more days off or what. I suspect there may be some connection between my piriformis, back of thigh and sore foot (all on the sciatic nerve), though the annoying foot thing is localised to a specific spot.
Went to my club AGM yesterday -- they get some attendance for the more dreary parts of the proceedings by giving out annual trophies at the end, and I was there to pick up the marathon one this year. But there was a nice little interview of a young lad who's had GB appearances.
