 I can now just upload my routes to Starva to log my miles.  I just don't understand those runners that are constantly looking at the watch to stay on target pace.  I'm sure there are physio's out there dealing with issues caused by runners constantly looking at their watches.

Objectively, you logging your miles is no more or less rational than someone else clocking their pace. It's just a different metric.


Is it a stress fracture, x-ray doesn't show anything?

I thought stress fractures in feet tended only to show up on x-rays once they had started the repair process, so I wouldn't expect one to show up within a couple of weeks - more like 6 weeks on. If I recall there's also a pre stress fracture condition (that won't show up at all) that will cause similar pain.

Idiot club runners!!

Parkrun start time

10 mins should be fine.
My local one only scans the code at the end. I'd imagine the rest do the same.

Good luck!

I make sure I get 5 different flavours a day though.
Chips and biscuits make it 7, which is good.

Ibuprofen post long run

I'd say you need to address why you're getting headaches rather than mask the pain.

Does a half marathon + 6mile home count as a long run?

To be fair you sound more bothered about the whole issue than Screamapillar.

Contradictory information is so confusing - Help!!!

Leeches are the future.
Eat em, stretch em, stick em on your legs before intervals.
All works.

Nike admit their running shoe advice is rubbish.

Well sort of.
