Shades - Thank you for that calm, reassuring advice for my marathon. I'm going to follow it!
Lol at your morning encounter
Have you thought of getting an MRI scan to get to the bottom of that foot problem? Not sure how it works in the UK.. would your GP refer you for one?
Cal - You do so much core work it puts me to shame
Steve - Well done on all that holiday running. I love running in different places.
Big G - that beer and train festival sounds good. Have you got another race planned soon? I can't remember.
SK - If not another 10k PB it's really close AND a minute off last year's time is a great result.
You are right about asking Dr Google. I regret it every time. That amputation comment was on the first page mind you!
Yes, it is Carcassonne I am doing on Sunday. Looks like it's going to be hot too which isn't really a surprise but I'm not sure if I need to take salt/electrolytes.. are they the same thing? .. and how do I know if I need them?
Saw my Dr today with the results of the scan and, as predicted by Dr Cal(!), he has given me some anti-inflammatory gel inside a sort of big plaster thing. He said to take the marathon easy but hopefully the gel will have a positive effect on the injury, fingers crossed.
