Overdone it?

He was the one who was blowing out of his backside after 3 miles in 25mins this morning. And is starting to look like a hippopotomus

But my foot is no worse than it was yesterday morning and definitely not as bad as it was after the 3 on Monday

Good day all

Apologies for not reading back but i'll have a go when i have some time. I hope you've all missed me terribly - i know Lit will have for sure And i hope everyone is fit and healthy and running well.

9 weeks now since i started getting problems with my heel and in that time i've managed to get in 12 runs for a total of 71 miles. The pattern over the last 3 weeks ( which was around about the time i went to my doctor and he said he thought it could be PF even though i didn't have any of the classic symptoms ) has been 3 miles on Monday - 2 days of hobbling about - 4 days of thinking about running - repeat.

Yesterday i went to the doctor again and told him i wanted to rule out some sort of bone damage / break / stress fracture and he referred me to the hospital where i had an x-ray. No signs of any bone damage.

Last night i was lucky enough to get an appointment with my physio for today and off i went to see her at lunchtime

After a brief explanation of symptoms and a few questions she decided that PF wasn't the problem and the real issue/source of the problem was further up my body.

At this point i nearly shouted out " i'm sure Skinny on the Overdoneit ? thread has mentioned that in the past "

The problem seems to be that my pelvis is locked up / over-rotated (?) on the right side which became more evident as we went through a series of tests/stretches.

So, good news i think and she said it's definitely treatable and i may be back to normal in a few weeks.

She even said i could carry on running every day for 30 mins max and didn't expect the pain in my foot to get any worse now.

Fingers crossed !!

All this talk of 6:xx miling and sessions ... how depressing

I'm beginning to feel like a bit of a slob as i've gone into almost total inactivity in a bid to give my foot chance to recover properly. Not even walking/cycling to work now, using the car for every journey, getting my kids to fetch stuff around the house, getting my kids to go to the shop for me etc etc

Doctor Google is telling me this isn't PF so i'm hoping it's just a badly bruised heel. If it returns after my next test run it will have to be a visit to a real doctor i think.

Well done veloo

So 3.5m on tues evening after the best part of 10 days off was ok but yesterday lunchtime's 4 miler was seemingly a bit too much. Not painful bet definitely some discomfort

Charlie - Lou is a very good shOUT

Skinny - 5:30 !! What's that all abOUT ?

DT - you left an 'e' OUT of 'concerns'


I didn't manage to get OUT for a run this morning.

I did manage to vote but I'm not saying which way

Great running from the McFlous again - you two are having a great year!


That would be because i've released one of them from the shackles of " mace's one to watch " That honour is Charlie's this year ....

I'm bottom of the league in my football predictions at work, I'm not actually interested in football but am sufficiently competitive to be annoyed about this.



I tested my foot last night with a 3.5 miler

Even though i've been gagging to run for the last 10 days, i wasn't looking forward to this as i was worried it would flare up again and i also suspected i'd be shit.

I ran with my brother-in-law who's just started running and has entered Brighton Marathon 2017. After 1.5M he had to walk which made me feel much better about my own fitness / shitness.

And today the foot feels fine so i think i'll have another go tomorrow morning.

Stick with turds, nobs, tits and wanking and I should manage to keep up.

muddy - good stuff, with that sort of mileage i suspect you'll be back in beast mode before long and sailing past my gold cell

I would like to do any sort of run at the moment and am really missing it. I feel as unhealthy  as a big fat turd.

Skinny - oh come on !! All my effort surely wasn't wasted in my last post !? As for the physio, i'll get an orthotic for now and take it slowly and that will be my next call if it doesn't improve. At the moment it feels ok and i can walk without any discomfort but it doesn't quite feel right so i'll stew away in my own juices for a few more days.

Plenty of good running from everyone

One week almost without any running here

Ideally i'll start again on Monday

Not if the foot's still hurting though

That would be foolish but i'm worried i may be tempted over the weekend

Luckily we're in London on Saturday so won't have much time

Even with the forecast being decent

Sunday is Father's day so that should keep me occupied

Skinny ..........

.... 11 miles is a long way to run whilst testing out an injury and also ask if your calves are tight - from recent research all manner of foot problems seem to stem from tight calves and I could imagine that running 11 miles after not much running might tighten them a bit.


Hmm, now you mention it, it does seem rather obvious And my calves do seem to be a little tight which isn't surprising as i probably haven't stretched at all for a good 6 weeks. But then i never do much anyway. Cheers Skinny
