CW - do you have the adizeros or energy boosts?

I got the glides and they are very comfortable.

X-post but like the honey badger, I don't care.

Legend! He had one chance to come clean.  Maybe he just did some training?  

"Nobody thinks maybe I just trained hard. No one thinks 'maybe he paced himself through the first half and when the second half came he just let himself go'.

Yes mate and ran a 61 min half.  Nicely done.  Samir... a challenger.

Where do you live?

Thinning of Fat Heel Pad

I was diagnosed with this - Rest was all that was recommended.  Mine literally "went away" although I focused more on cycling than running I also HTFU and got on with it.

I had heel pads.  Soft shoes - adidas boost would be lovely I guess.   

I also had acupuncture can't say it did much in hindsight but seemed good at the time!

Dids - Caffeine is popular with Iron distance triathlete and this has filtered down.  I understand you basically have to abstain from it for a month before and they take an obscene amount to get much benefit.

RE: Boosts - they are now in the outlet here... £90 reduced from £110 for energy boosts.  I got the glides for £80 from Runners Needs with work ID.  A very comfortable shoe and once i'm clear of this injury i'd like to give the Adizeros a go. 

Can I run another marathon 6 weeks after running a marathon?

Yes - the back of Pfitzinger and Douglas has a section on it.

OS - "Like" I notice Natalie Wright is following you.  A competent RN runner chasing her sub 3.
