And to you Coach.

No training today. Decided I needed a rehydration day

Happy New Year everyone 

Now well established rules:

  • 1 point for every mile run - indoors or out
  • 1 point for every 3 miles biked - road or turbo
  • 1 point for every 15 mins turbo/spin
  • 1 point for every 400m swum - 1 extra for every 1km in open water

New year, new plan and, as we all know, the best plans start with a rest day

Sound ideal. Plenty of time for the forecast you change though

Been going for about 6 years and always seems to pick up a regular following so I don't see why not

Day 3 completed. 1h swim, 30m bike. Is anyone else struggling to fit the fink swim sessions into an hour or am i just shit?

I've never managed to complete a fink swim set within an hour so tend to do my own thing in the pool. My IM swim times are usually around 1:20ish.

Shoe choice

Sounds like a neutral, cushioned shoe would suit but best option may be to go back to the same road shoe you were using before you started getting problems.

Shoe choice

Go to a different running shop. Although arch height/foot shape is a very generalised concept, a high arch is supposed to be an indicator of a supinator/under-pronator which would match your wear descripiton.  Did they watch you run at all or examine your current running shoes?

How old are your shoes?  If they're old and your problems are recent and not linked to an increase or dramatic change in training, maybe just buy a new pair of your current shoes.  If the shoes are new, are they the same as you've had before?

Other options, a sport massage may help if the problems are just a result of muscular tightness or imbalances or a see a sports physio to identify what's causing your problems.
