Eggyh: I'm thinking I'll just stick to the schedule.Getting to the start line injury free and with a full training schedule behind me is all that matters,if I can do that I'll have a real chance of my goal.After what I went through to finish Paris last year,I no longer worry about whether I'll finish or not.

On the subject of legs.My wife constantly slags my skinny legs and asks if I want to swap with her.Easy answer to that is "these legs have done 2 marathons,have yours?".My legs are skinny but they are feeling a lot stronger since I started doing leg strengthening 3 days a week.

EggyH:Im currently following a RW schedule.It only has 2x18 mile and 2 x 20mile runs.The long run schedule goes like this 15,13,15,15,18,18,20,13,20,taper.Do you think I should shuffle it a bit to try squeeze in another 20 mile run,I'm aiming for 3:45-4:00 finish.cheers

Tricky dicky/running rodent:thanks for the advice,I think I'll try the physios at the local running club.I was at DW sports for some air soft sole insoles.The guy checked my gait and says I'm fine,just a slight kick out on my right foot.

Eggy: I used to love doing 20milers,the buzz and feeling of accomplishment is hard to beat.

Running rodent:it's Defo something I'll have to get checked out.I did a test walking up the stairs.When I lift my right knee to go up the step,my knee collapses way in when I foot is pointing forward.My knee/thigh lifts normal when I rotate my foot outwards.Any idea who would be best person to see,doctor,physio or a chiropractor?

Also when checking alignment in the mirror,my leg has to turn at the hip to make my toes point forward.Could be natural but it defo looks like it could be my problem as it will affect the way my knee etc absorbs the shock from my foot strike

Whilst running on the treadmill tonight I noticed that my right foot points closer to 1 o'clock when my foot strikes the ground,my left points straight ahead.Im now wondering if that could be the source of the calf and knee pain that I suffer on my right leg.I tried to correct it but it felt strange and uncomfortable.Has anyone ever had this problem?

Eggy:it's snowing again here,I'm also hoping it thickens up.Ive only got 12 or 14 miles to do,if I need to use treadmill I'll probably just do 10 miles at a quicker pace.im impressed that you are up to 18 mile runs already

Well it's looking like I'll need to do my LSR on the treadmill tomorrow unless this snow clears away.I can't think of anything more mind numbing to be honest.

Tricky Dicky:were the reasons on your part or was it the marathon organisation etc that you didn't like,would you still recommend it to others
