Help me please to remember a website

I think there were several IIRC.  http://endurancejunkies.com/blog/2011/01/30/funny-look-at-ironman-vs-ultramarathon/ was produced by a website called http://xtranormal.com/ but that site seems to have lost all its content.

injured, marathon in 8 months :(

I'm no expert on biomechanics, but from my 'back seat adviser' position.

You've clearly got a 'problem' with your running which needs resolving.  I know there are some posters on here who regard osteopaths and chiropracters as purveyors of snake oil, but the one you visited prescribed something which (s)he thought would resolve the problem.  You seem (and apologies if this comes across as harsh) to have bailed on the resolution as it hurt a bit when trying to correct your default style.

Your physio is keeping you going, but it doesn't seem she's fixing the basic problem.  Are there not strengthening exercises or stretches which will stop the stiffening?  

If, at the end of the day you can afford the cost of the physio then the status quo can continue, but you are going to have to up the mileage at some point and if you've not fixed the root cause then you'll either break or need to move in with the physio.

Certainly this far out from the marathon there's no rush to start a specific programme so you've got loads of time on your side.  I'm a big fan of core work and certainly shedding excess weight is good, but I'm concerned that you're not addressing the core problem.  What is it that your physio does every week (is she doing something you can't do)?  What was it that the insoles were doing to make things worse?

Hope you have a stress free run Seren- and I hope you've packed the survival bag, Kendal mint cake etc etc

Mostly cold and slushy down by here, no great inconveniences being suffered,

8 months is ample time, but you need to sort out your "chronic injury".  Who diagnosed you and what did they/are you doing to work round the problem?  Don't try and increase the miles while you still have the injury niggling on.

From your profile you've previously run a marathon (or more than one) so you're obviously capable of covering the distance

Underneath the reply box there should be a 'report to moderator' button.  I suggest you use this and it will at least bring this to the attention of someone- who in turn may be able to pass your concerns onto someone who can sort it out.

Depending on the brand Melds, you might be allowed into the sub-3 mara thread- washing machine brands are a recurring theme (as are colour of shoes and indeed laces).

Morning all,

looks like it might be a chilly run home this evening.  No earthquakes however.

The forum imposes a limit on the length of any one post- unfortunately it doesn't tell you what that is but merely truncates the message.  Try again with smaller multiple posts.
