Bloody well done Daffs. Great PB . Lots of positives there

Hopefully the recovery is going well and your hip and foot are settling down. Get someone to check them out if you're still having issues in a week or so.

Enjoy the park runs and halves. Look forward to following your progress

  Hard to say what it might be, hopefully it's more a case of taper madness.  If you had a bit more time before the race I'd suggest having a word with a physio.  If it were me I'd try anti inflam cream/tabs and rest up.  I get hip bursitis which is like a gnawing sensation so I know how rotten hip discomfort can be.  As for the ankle support, if it makes it feel better then I'd give it a go.

Hi Bam and Barbara. Sorry to hear the PF still causing you grief Bam. Hope it begins to ease soon.

Daffs, I agree with Bam that a gentle leg loosener wouldn't be a bad idea. Nothing silly, just a very very gentle jog.

My race starts stupidly early on Sunday (8.30 so 7.30 UK time) but will be trying to get online later in the day for updates!!!!

Hey Daffs.  Not sure what's going on but pc/connection's gone screwy again and not not posted my reply!!   I just popped in to see if you'd posted and realised mine wasn't there.

Anyway, well done on the 20 miler.  Sounds like it turned into more than a bit of an adventure!!!  The hanging around waiting for the ambulance at that point won't have helped and it was no wonder you were feeling sore after that.  Hopefully things will go smoother from here!

What's the plans now?  How did your shoes feel with the different insoles?  I sometimes buy Sole or Sorbathane (?sp) to put in rather than the ones that come with the shoes.  Hopefully the change will have helped.

How did today go?  Hope it was ok.  What's the verdict on the shoes?  If you're really concerned then maybe go back to your old ones for longer runs and just keep these for the short stuff.  Hopefully there's enough life left in them to get you through to D Day!

Am off to Belgium tomorrow for Flanders Field marathon.  Will get online when I can and see how you're doing.

You can eat the tabs (it was something that was recommended as a quick way of getting nutrients in at one of our 10in10 training weekend talks) but I drop them in a bottle of water.

Well I've stopped for a 'picnic', had the odd text conversation and stopped to get ice cream/lolly before now so .....

Good to see the belt's working for you.  They are great but so often they don't sit right or don't have a big enough pocket etc.  Sounds like you hit the jackpot with this one though

Certainly sounds like you've got a good routine going there and good that you can now have a mix of drinks.  One thought is you could try High 5 fizzy tabs.  You can carry a few on you and just pop them in as and when you need them rather than have a pre-mixed drink.  Just something different that may work for you.  Fruit pastilles/jelly babies and such like are good for getting the calories in.  If you've space in your bag you could try something savoury too, like mini cheddars/peanuts/crisps to get some salt back in.  Another thing is that too much sweet stuff over the course of a marathon can give you an iffy stomach.

Nowt wrong with being a bit overstuffed.  As long as it doesn't give you issues then go for it.  It's very easy to bonk on long runs and it'll happen very swiftly and really the point you realise you've not had enough to eat/drink you're already on a sticky wicket.

I love the way you worked your way through to deciding on Thursday!!  Rest that ankle as much as you can tomorrow and drink plenty to help get rid of the headache.  And enjoy

Have you got the nutrition side of things sorted now?  What do you take with you on your run?  How's the drinks belt working out?  3 Qs not 20
