Loch Ness marathon 2014

Another week of decent running done.Back up to 12 miles for my long run.Ive got a bit of a dilemma.Ive just noticed my tickets for Still Game are for the Saturday night in glasgow the night before the marathon.Tom is the deadline for signing up,so I'll need to find a way of doing both so I don't upset the wife.

Helga:the OROD(grid roller) is a very good substitute and cheaper, for a massage,it worked wonders for me

Hi everyone,I've not been on in a while,my knee/ thigh problems were beginning to get me down.Things have improved over the last few weeks.I found a load of trigger points in bottom tip of my quad and in the TFL area.Since I've been working on they areas I've felt a lot less pain,fingers crossed I'm over the worst of it.I completed a 25 mile week today which included 4 miles yesterday and 8 miles today.hopefully the next 2 weeks go well and I'll catch the July 1st sign up.Im thinking of investing in a bike to replace my midweek long run as I tend to feel most discomfort when running 3 consecutive days.

Benign/eggy: Loch Ness is defo out the window for this year.Im just going to concentrate on smaller runs for now,maybe 2 days running followed by a rest day.Its not that it's really painful it's just the fact that I feel a discomfort and it's bugging the life out me esp since I've had a fair bit of rest due to start stop training for different reasons.

Scott: I having serious thoughts about swapping Loch Ness for the Glasgow Half marathon.I really don't want to push myself too much and my last 2 marathons were both struggles due to not being ready.

Scott:it feels similar to the niggles I had when I had itband issues.The fact I managed to finish paris is leading me to think it's maybe something not so serious,I'll see how the next week or so goes when I add an extra day or 2 to my training plans

Time has passed too quick for my liking since Paris.A little over 3 weeks before I'm scheduled to start my training plan,not looking like I'll be ready.Still getting slight niggles.I will need to up it to 5 days running from Monday.

I have been giving the cadence thing a serious go on my past 3 runs.The 1st couple of runs it felt strange but today it felt more natural and also feels great on the knees,tho I've only been doing short 3 mile runs every 2 days as I'm concentrating on strengthening my core and legs at the moment.

It's funny that the talk the past 2 days has been about north of scotland.I just got told today that I'm working in Arisaig and staying in Fort william for a couple of weeks starting on Monday.

Eggh: I think I'll go back to running every 2 days for a bit.The pain I'm feeling is more in the muscle behind my knee this time.Ive been self massaging it so hopefully it will sort itself out.

Benign: I'm still doing them once a week but I'm going to start doing them as often as I can.I tried to up the cadence today.it defo felt better on my legs,it just felt strange as if I was taking really small steps and my HR was really high due to the extra effort.

This is my 2nd week back running since paris.Just sticking to 3,4 and 5 mile runs for now.Still feeling a slight niggle from side of knee to back of knee.Its a strange faint pain comparable to growing pains,it's not sore just annoying.

I've been struggling with the cadence thing aswell,the lowest I can get it is about 170,usually about 166-168.Feels to much like shuffling.
