I'm racing in the local Race For Life 5K tomorrow with MsEtte1, OO. I may let her pip me to the line
Leslie - I have The Stick but prefer to foam roll using my Grid (which I used this morning before my run and it was sooooo helpful!) 13.1 miles with no problems is definitely a good place to be. Fingers crossed this is the way things will continue for you.
I'm getting quite excited about Comrades but see it is forecast to be hot that weekend. I hope that the Comraders amongst us have been warm weather training. At least this will take the pressure off achieving fast times.
Having had a few days off, with the achilles feeling worse, I went for a hour's run this morning. I foam rolled beforehand and stopped and stretched a few times along the way and it felt so much better. Since then it has felt great. So obviously not running at all is not a good idea (in addition to speedwork). I sort of knew this but have been reminded of it. Still not sure I will race well on Monday though.
