Wonderful word - so many potential uses!

btw, "creaking" is a pretty clear sign of inflammation around a tendon. Have you tried hitting it hard with ibuprofen? Probably needs a bit more rest than you've given it recently!

... She's also very sensitive about it, and prone to abusive outbursts !

PRW the tendon of FHL runs from the inner side of the ankle, going under the foot to reach the big toe. It can get injured anywhere, but esp where it crosses the tendons that flex the lesser toes, right in the middle of the foot. But as it's getting better, it doesn't' matter anyway. Fingers crossed it stays good.

I thought it sounded like FHL too. Do you mean it hurts when you actively scrunch your big toe under, or when you do it passively, eg with your hand? Also, does it hurt when you stretch the tendon (by using your fingers to bend the toe"backwards")?

Meldy has a bit of a thing about Achilles tendons as hers are particularly old and decrepit.

Er, but was in fact the only one in her AG who turned up! Just as well, as it was never going to be quick for me today.

Looks like it . However, I came out in a nasty rash last time I swam in the pool, and it still hasn't gone - wonder what they're putting in the water....?!

T-30 weeks for IMW

Agree with Seren again. cycling is much more benign than running, so you can make steeper increases, and that's how people get away with sticking in "big" bike weeks during training. Also, more time getting your backside saddle - shaped now can pay dividends later when the rides get longer....

I agree with Seren that the biking is a bit light in Fink. You don't need to do a dozen centuries, but booking yourself onto 2 or 3 long sportives makes it more interesting, and you're committed then. I think the programme is written for city dwelling Americans, so if you can get out for a couple of hours inthe bike on a weekday evening when it gets lighter, that puts a bit more work into the legs prior to the weekend.

While I'm on the subject of Fink, the swims are more bearable if you drop the second lot of drills - it's hard to do them well once you're tired, and it makes the sessions shorter which is important if you're slow and can't fit in more than an hour.
