How much is staying injury free worth to you?

So what did you do for, for instance, Paula Radcliffe?

Wanted: Flat 10k or 1/2 with places

Why didn't you just enter earlier?
The key to getting a place in a popular race is to enter it before everyone else does.

I never really saw the point of PPI after reading the small print but we had a Barclays options (?) current account - one phone call from Mrs P to Barclays resulted in a £2200 payment. I was sceptical after one of her friends suggested it but that really was all it took.

London Marathon ballot place/training issue.

So two separate weeks? Not an issue really. The first time I did London I didnt even get a place until february, a rest over christmas and another in feb will do no harm at all if you start training now.

That's fishing for you.

But seriously, as above, if you can rein in your expectations you may be able to carry on running for a while yet.

Persistent Foot Pain Since April...

Posted: 23/09/2016 at 20:36

Sarah I can't provide a diagnosis but I have a similar problem, and I've come to the conclusion that it is some sort of inflammation in at least one of the tendons in the foot.

It does come and go, and I am pain free in some footwear (factory work boots) but other footwear (office brogues) make it worse. Taping has helped. Ankle stregthening exercises have helped.

I think we expect soft tissue injuries to heal in a few days or weeks, but in fact they can take months, even years. I  think you should do all the things that help, and as few as possible of the things that don't, and hopefully it will improve
