Adidas Silverstone Half Marathon

This is great for a speed test for a spring marathon. Yes Silverstone is bland but most repeated lap races are. Provides an excellent opportunity to run in a big crowd and get your race day strategy correct for London or Brighton. I'd do it again but ensure you get there early .... The A43 is a pain in the bottom in terms of traffic unless you're inconsiderate and scoot along in the outside lane and blend in at last moment.

Webchat with physio Sarah Connors

Ironic that we get to talk about aches and pains on Valentines Day.

As I have stepped up my training , I have started to get an ache in my lower back on the left handside. During my longruns I start getting aches and numbness down the top of my leg and as the run gets longer the front.

The numbness has stopped me doing any tempo work but I have managed to keep plodding out on long runs but need to stretch at regular intervals. Is this a sciatic problem + should i get some physio prior to Brighton Marathon.

AGREED parking was a nightmare last year !!!

I ran this last year and I aiming to do so again. I ran a lot quicker than my marathon pace but wanted to test my endurance in a race environment.

The course is flat and not too busy so an excellent opportunity for a PB just beware the bicycles on the towpath.
