Lateral foot pain possibly cuboid related

Posted: 14/05/2016 at 15:19

Thanks for your responses. I haven't managed to see anyone yet but have an appointment with a physio next week. Foot still aches but a lot less than a few days ago.


Martenkay, thanks for your post. Was helpful to prod aaround my foot, there definitely is a tender spot in the hollow space between ankle and cuboid. Not sure about orthotics as I've run for 20 years without them but will see what advice I get.


Lateral foot pain possibly cuboid related

Anyone got experience with lateral foot pain? I went for a run on Tuesday evening with no problems. Later that night I got up off the sofa and had a sharp pain in my foot. Two days later it still hurts to walk or weight bare and foot has a dull ache when resting. Pain is on the outside and top of foot around the cuboid bone and radiates to the little toe and ankle when walking. Questions is what to do next? Watch and wait for a few days? See GP? Though o suspect they'd just tell me to rest See hospital and try and get x-Ray? (I'm pretty sure it's not a stress fracture as, although it hurts it doesn't feel painful enough to be broken) See physio? See podiatrist? I'd quite like yo get it sorted as I'm supposed to be doing a half in 2.5 weeks. Thanks

How fast can you run a mile?

Posted: 05/05/2016 at 18:06

My club does a mile race in the summer. My time was affected last year by two factors 1) it was the (one) really hot day we had last year 2) My shoe lace came undone 400m in! 

I'm pretty confident I can beat my time this year!

Minimum number of runs a week during marathon training?

Posted: 04/05/2016 at 09:58

There's also the Shades marathon training thread. I just got a pb at Brighton following the basic plan which has three runs a week and an optional 4th. I intended to do more cross training but was massively pressed for time due to work this winter.

I barely broke 30 miles per week at the max and still took 12 mins off my previous time. 

What do you do with you race medals?

Posted: 01/05/2016 at 14:27

Anyone know how best to protect medals? I keep mine in a glass jar, at some point they much have got damp or something on them as a few are getting tarnished. Most interesting effects are the one for the Seaford half: it started out as four slightly odd looking blokes running, they now look like they've got a flesh  eating bug!



London Marathon 2013 Medal Replacement

Aren't there something like 5000 volunteers at London?  No idea if they all get a medal, but if they do then even though there are fewer official medals overall, there may be a lot more people prepared to sell one.  There are usually more 'official' medals than finisher medals for sale on ebay.



Pretty sure we were offered officials medals for helping on the water station at London. I also have one for helping at the mini marathon.

How do you target a race, when you think a pb is definitely off the cards?

Am trying to decide how to approach HM on Sunday, so thought I'd see how others usually approach this...
