Hello all, been reading but not posting much lately.... I must try harder!
Nice lot of running being done.
Pleased to report that the wheels haven't fallen off (yet), I had to shorten a couple of runs the week before last after having a really tight calf and being fearful of another stress fracture. However I am back to full training and successfully ran my 9 miles with 5@LT pace this morning. I am finding the LT paced runs really tough at the moment, but am guessing that its because I haven't done any speed work since before my injury in the Summer.
Re: Sore/tight glutes - spiky ball is a definate must, find myself sitting on them very frequently, often whilst saying ouch (or words to that effect!).
Happy New Year, and fingers crossed we are all at the start lines for our chosen marathons injury free/ignored
