Hi all Shadies. Fairly quiet few days for me post hols. Work not too hectic which is good and boys 2 and 3 have been in Yorkshire with their granny since the weekend. Have been fairly cautious, just running 5-6 miles every other day. Achilles OK when running but was a bit achey after spending a day in London yesterday which involved lots of walking. I'm thinking maybe wearing just flip flops/ Birkenstocks for the last couple of months may be a cause as my heal feels fine in trainers.
Lee, sorry to hear your achilles probs have resurfaced. Does running make yours worse? I've been doing those heal lifts but can't really tell if they are helping or if they make me ache more! I read somewhere that gel heal inserts can help - have you tried these at all?
Another fan of Sports Shoes.com. I've been looking for some new Saucony's though and I can't find the pair I want for less than 88 quid! Does seem like the prices of shoes have shot up.
MF - I agree, I never understand the French obsession with mushrooms/cepes! Are you sure your family aren't all taking the magic ones?!
Big G, great that you are getting so into your cycling. I heard that the 2015 ballot for Ride London has opened - you should enter! And you'll definitely need a little seat for the little one
Getting very jealous when I hear any mention of Chester Although I did see that there is now a HM there on the same day...
