Good luck to you P&Ders who are racing tomorrow - I'm excited for you and hope to be able to join in the running fun soon (up to 5 slow miles in my recovery programme).

Best of luck, y'all and DON'T BE SHIT 

Overpronation, Shin Splints & Orthotics

Posted: 10/04/2015 at 11:29

I’ve had shin splints myself and find wearing compression sock or calf guards during and after running helps if I get a flare up. Also, work on calf flexibility and strength as well as the eversion, plantar, dorsiflexion etc exercises that I gather you’re doing with a theraband.

I’m no expert on orthotics, but my understanding was that they are worn with a neutral shoe, not a shoe that already has stability built in to them.

I also meant to say, the article was writen by a medical expert, rather than forum opinion.

Heart rate

Mark, I get this happening too. I read an article on here ages ago saying that extreme variations in HR could be an indicator of being super fit - or at the very least, it's not a thing to be concerned about.

I  see if i can find it and post.

Tim, I am excited for you! And yes, all OK with me (touch wood) - managed 4 miles last night

As for the gels - I try different ones all the time. In fact, if a particular race is using X brand, I will use them on the day (although I always have an emergency stash of my own on my pocket). I have my personal favourites - the GU and Cliff brand both do a chocolate one (yum) and there was a choc mint one which was like After Eights - alas no longer available.

Westy - I will check in nearer the time re Manc 10K.

Your comment must have been on my mind because last night I had a dream that I met you in a cafe prior to the race, we got chatting and decided to go out boozing and missed the race altogether  Sounds preferable!!

Just popped on for a quick skim-read catch up and to let you know my leg-break recovery is going OK. I’m up to 3.5 miles ‘jogging’ now and I’m confident I can make the Manchester 10K (May) with my sister.

I’ve just read Wenty’s Jerusalem race report – flipping heck, that sounds tough. Well done, mate. 

Who’s up next?
