Just wondering if anyone has done this one in the past?  Is it recommended?

Calf injury- diagnosis required

Posted: 05/02/2014 at 18:43
Hello, I'm posting on behalf of a friend who is baffled as to exactly what injury he has. The area affected is the outside of his knee/lower leg. He said: "Three weeks ago I,for a change ran on a treadmill. I normally pound the pavements without any difficulty. The next day,having been on the treadmill,the outside of my knee was sore. No bumps or bruises,just a dull pain. Cue two weeks of rest. However there is no change: I have a aching pain on the outside of my left knee which turns into a shooting pain down through my calf/lower leg when I put pressure on to run. Any idea what injury this is?" Any help or advice welcome

Stockholm - I was worried that I had to get the medical cert, but it's really just one or the other.  If I was you I'd get the letter from EA - they'll be fine with that (they were with me anyway) and it'll save you a few £

I'm also in - bit of a faff on in the registration process but glad to say it's all done and I'm looking forward to it!  Hope to see some of you there

iPhone apps for marathon training

Posted: 27/01/2014 at 21:00

Just wondering what app yous all use?  If any?  I can do it the manual way but I fancy something novel just to make my training interesting.  I've got eight weeks left and I'd love to do it properly for once!

Ideally, I'd like an app where you can just enter the race date manually as opposed to giving you set standard 16 week training programmes like the runkeeper one does.  Or one that generates a plan for you for the time you actually have left until race day.  Any suggestions would be most welcome

I've been doing 30 odd a week recently, had a half marathon on Sunday, now I'm up to a decent level, it's just that I've only got 8 weeks til the marathon (23rd March) which is why I'm just looking for a weekly breakdown of miles for the weeks that are left.

Anyone got any links to any marathon training plans? I've found/got countless ones with training schedules on them, but I'm looking for one with purely number of miles to aim to clock up over an eight week period if anyone can help

Contrary to the emails they were sending, my UK Athletics letter got my application rubber-stamped!  Thanks for all the help and advice on here

Thanks for this - they actually got back to my email today after a week... but typically didn't make their answer clear.  They say they want proof of a health cert.  Fine.  And I do see the facility to upload that on the page too, but I genuinely can't see the bit to upload my running club card.  I'm looking forward to doing it but I could do without this nonsense to be honest.  It'll probably take another week for them to answer my simple question.  Hope this is all worth it!

do either of yous know how good the people are at dealing with enquiries?  I emailed them for help about it on Sunday and I haven't had a reply as yet.  

I'm quite worried now as it says I'm 33% completed in registration.  that 33% is me having paid.  The other 66% is the health cert upload and my club card upload.  The club card upload is the easy part but there is no facility to do this on the registration page - there is just the facility to upload the health cert.  Any ideas?
