Mate, I had a 'career break'!

Where has lucozade sport powder gone?

I'm confused. Ran the FLM in 2008 and used lucozade sport powder to make up drinks for my fuel belt during long training runs. Now I'm running VLM 2014, so went on the lucozade shop site to buy a couple of tubs of powder. 

But shock horror, they don't seem to make it anymore? What's going on? I guess they still give it out at the event, so I want to train with it. And unlike many, I have no tummy trouble with it. 

Can anyone help?

Sore big toe

I have recently started traing again after a long break. I've had my gait analysed, and bought this year's version of he shoes I have always run in (Mizuno Wave Inspire). 

I have started getting pain while running in the joint of my right big toe. I can run through it, and it comes and goes gradually as I run, but I'm a bit concerned as I'm only up to 5 miles at the moment (training for London).

anyone got any idea what it might be, and how best to treat it.

Advice on starting up again

Hi all,

So, I ran London in 2008 and loved it. i don't have a marathon runner's build, and so I was really chuffed to do it. A few half marathons and 10k's during training were great too, and I lost loads of weight.

Now I am sat at home having just become a dad, knackered, unfit and desperately in need of starting up again. And I've decided that next Monday is the day. 32 weeks until 13th April 2014, when I will try and run London again (if I get in).

I'm looking for some help with training plans. I'm pretty much starting from scratch again, but I can run a few miles at present ok. I like the look of the 16 week ultimate RW marathon plan for sub 4:30. But I need something for the first 16 weeks (i.e. now to late December). 

I have entered a half marathon on 27th October, but I don't think I have time to prepare well enough too run it. I have also entered a 10k in early November which I'll definitely do.

Can anyone give me any advice on what to follow for this first 16 weeks of my 32? I live in Scotland and according to the events calendar there are very few races between now and the end of the year, which is a shame as I really need some goals to work toward
