Have you tried stretches. I use one where you lay flat on your back. Bend the injured leg with foot flat on floor. About 90 degrees for the knee bend. Then pull the knee over the good leg. You will feel the stretch in the bad hip.

Berlin Marathon

Sorry to hear thet Beetle, however I have missed out on 2 marathons in the last 2 years due to injury, so I do know how you may be feeling. It is annoying but look forwards to what you can do in the future. On both I still went and supported friends that were running. I flew home with no aches so that was a bonus.

There is an app for Berlin which is very good, it can track runners and loads of helpful info, it is free via play store for android, I assume apple have it as well.

The tea is great, made black with honey and warm. I first had it in Berlin 6 years ago and now use it on my long runs. Took a gamble that first year drinking it on the day but as its natural it worked well for me.

Trying to get to 9.4 on bleep test

Posted: 02/02/2016 at 19:49

Treadmill, walk jog for 1 minute, then go up to 8.5 km/h. every minute increase speed by 0.5km/h. Keep this up till you can do 11 minutes and 9.4 will be ok. Do this once a week as well as other runs. You will soon notice the improvements


Any old shoe will do

Saw a tv programme about 6 months ago. About 12000 army recruits, half measured and given best shoe for gait etc and other half given any pair that fit correctly. Six months later the injuries assessed and there was no difference in number and nature of foot/leg injuries. They suggest fit is the most important factor so you could be right on getting budget shoes.
