24 marathons! I think you could make some friends in Amsterdam.

I was told to wear the boot for five to six weeks, or until I can walk pain free. Once the boot comes off I was told to do strengthening exercises on my ankle as the muscles for that would be weak after having worn the boot.

I've had the boot on for three weeks now. The foot is much better than it was, but still not 100%. I'm hopeful I'll be able to get the boot off in a couple of weeks and that at least would allow me to drive again and get to the pool to do some swimming, I was told to be very careful with getting back to running, so I'm not rushing things. I know all my autumn running plans are out, so I'm willing to let time do its thing and get back out running once I feel the foot is 100% again. I'm not putting myself under any pressure to return to running by a specific date.

I know I'll have lost a huge amount of fitness, which is very annoying as I was in the form of my life. I'm just trying to tell myself if I could get there once I can do it again.

Orbutt - Sounds like a tough one. Hopefully just one of those days and you'll soon be back to form.

I guess I'm the freak then as I think a 750m swim is nothing! I'm not fast but I never find swimming distance any trouble. I went from not having swam quite literally in years to doing 1000m in my first swim session this summer.

Cycling around Arthurs Seat on the other hand is the stuff of nightmares for me. I'm terrible at cycling up hills. I love the downhill bit though.

Dom - Ouch, that sounds painful.

Lenny11 - You clearly have the pace, just need to work on the stamina and strategy for the marathon.

Meadower - Good to hear you're getting back out running again. Hope the run went well last night.

I'll be over to support friends who are running.

One of the things I learned about myself over the last few years is I'm a time orientated runner. If I can't turn up to an event and give it 100% then I won't enjoy it. I'll sit this one out and watch from the sidelines.

No, I'm out. Six weeks in a support boot and I've been told it will be roughly that again before I can run again. It will be around the time of the race that I'll be able to lace up the trainers for the first time again.

I'll be looking at next spring before I'll be in any shape to race again after that length of time out.
