Xmas party

Posted: Yesterday at 16:52

I've passed on the works do (only £20 a ticket, but £40 for a hotel room, or the same for a taxi home). Why pay for something that I will want to leave after about 15 minutes anyway? Pretty much the only thing I have in common with my colleagues is work, and I'm buggered if I am talking work to them all night (which would happen). 

The alternative is a pub meal with a running group I head out with from time to time. Nice people, happy to talk about running, and I can walk home (well, in theory, anyway).

They've not split, but I'm having a related problem: the upper is "folding" as the foot flexes, resulting in rubbing and blistering on my second toe. It was doing it on both feet, but I've experimented with different lacing patterns (missing out one of the bottom lace holes) and that has helped a bit. Still having to tape up one toe though.

Just in case anyone else is looking for a place, I similarly have a place that I cannot use, and will accept £30 as well. PM me if interested.

 

Best UK autumn marathon or half marathon

Chester is superb. Very well organised,  reasonably priced,  beautiful course,  great start/finish location. Generally flat, but a few inclines towards the end.

Outside of knee.. Pain only when running.

Is the area at all numb? If so, it could be nerve  related, which can be relatively easy to sort. Mine went with some gentle massage (self administered rubbing! ). Probably worth a trip to the physio.

 

P&D Spring Marathon Training Thread

Posted: 14/11/2013 at 13:59

Hi there everyone. I'm following the 35-55mile P&D schedule for Manchester. Third marathon, but first time on P&D. Running Stockport 10 on December 8th, then start after that. Wilmslow Half entered as a tune-up.

In the meantime, upping the miles after a disappointing Chester marathon, caused by a injury disrupted training plan. Looking for a PB at Stockport: well, TBH always looking for a PB!
