‎Plantar fasciitis and training

Hi Diki,

I had PF in my right foot before TR24 this year. I had physio twice on it and was really strict on doing the ball (or can!) rolling on the ball of my foot. I did hardly any running (and what I did was on trail only) and swam and did cross training instead.

The physio helped hugely (although it made it a lot more sore for about 4-5 days afterwards) and I did fine in the races and (touch wood!) the PF seems to have gone although I'm restricting running on roads until I'm 100% sure!

Good luck! And get that physio booked in!!

First Time Triathlon - What to Wear!

Posted: 06/08/2014 at 15:49

Afternoon,

I did my first triathlon at kimbolton 3 weeks ago and wore a swimsuit with ordinary shorts over the top and a sports bra underneath. Worked fine and didn't cause any problems or chafing. Used baggier shorts rather than capris and a lightweight bra. Didn't seem to slow me down not having a trisuit althought the running swimsuit pics were awful as expected

I use Find My Phone. I like to know that I can be found if I get hit by a car and end up in the ditch! Or much more likely ... I get lost and need a lift home!

Apparently Garmin are now offering some sort of pay-for service you can be tracked on. Think it's PC to Garmin but I didn't look into it as I take my phone when I run.

Amazing report Malcs!!

You did so well! Really felt for you when you mentioned the calf problem - that must have been horrendous feeling it that early on ... but well done on pushing through and nailing your target!! Testamanet to your stubborness!! Well done!!

I tend to think how much I need a wee for a large proportion of my long runs which is usually a bit offputting. Also whether that nasty-looking dog is going to bite me.

Good timing though: http://www.dreamingoffootpaths.co.uk/2014/04/what-i-think-about-when-i-run-brain.html

Hey Malcs

Wishing you the very best of luck … not that you need it as you are going to be BRILLIANT!! You'll love the course and the support is brilliant. Remember you're not allowed to stop and walk … Steve will be watching

Have an amazing time. Can't wait to hear how fantastic you've been and how much you've enjoyed it. You've put the training in … the race is the fun part. AND you get a medal at the end.

Hey Malcs!

You'll be brilliant. Have you looked at the course gradient? The last section is downhill … so definitely a good course for a negative split! You're going to ace this. I've got no doubt at all. 

Best of luck!! And no getting flu or damaging yourself in the final countdown!!!

Should I DROP my mileage to start this training schedule?

I've downloaded a marathon schedule for an Autumn marathon but the mileage is less than I'm doing at the moment and less days a week.
