Hi everyone - Had a fair bit going on, have been lurking on my phone but not had time to get on computer and have a good ramble (collective sigh of relief from the Shadies)
Can't do a Louey style catch up(!) but a couple of things have stuck in my mind..
Firstly a belated thank you to Shades on the strapping info and Cal on the Youtube tip. Very helpful. I have given this a go and although my foot feels more stable it still hurts
Shades - Great run at Worcester. It sounds like 6 months of core work are paying off. Hope your calf problem improves for next week.
Cal - Well done on ANOTHER PB.. you seem to be churning those out now
Nick - Hi and welcome
Big G - Impressive eating at Venice.. glad the mojo's back too.
KK - Enjoyed your report - couple of long training runs and you'd be lethal
Ian - An impressive PB from you.. I get ecstatic about that sort of PB at marathon distance!
I'm sorry if I've overlooked anything sigificant from anyone else!
I've just been pottering round running wise, getting more and more worried about attempting next week's marathon with the grand total of just ONE long run in the bank I'm going to try it though. I really want to get my hands on that medal and enjoy my purple bath afterwards.
Had my MRI scan yesterday (That was a bit scary!) Thankfully there is no sign of a stress fracture but a ténosynovite - which I think translates as tendonitis. I'm seeing my doctor Monday and will talk things through with him. I'm pretty sure the solution will be complete rest for a month until all symptoms have gone.
That'll be after the marathon then
