Great write up. I totally agree - it's amazing how Sarah can find the cause of the problem in minutes. I had the same problem last year with my knee and it also turned out to be aback problem with my hip flexor tightness being the cause.
Will you be able to add in the techniques that Sam showed in to your running style or do you think you'll be concentrating more on technique rather than pace?
I too was out today. It was an easier LSR today - one of your earlier runs - 14 miles 7 @ MP +50 and then 7@ MP. I've had three weeks of increasing mileage and long runs, so have had an easier week. I've actually enjoyed it!
Training is going well thanks. Milton Keynes Marathon is my target and as that isn't until early May, then I should hopefully get a few 20's in like yourself.
I am signed up for Spitfire, so I'll shout you a bacon bap afterwards. Talking of questionable food, A cycling friend swears by eating Christmas cake before his long cycle roads - I gave it a try this morning before my run - I don't think I'll do it again!
Like you say, at least it wasn't in the minuses today!
