Andy - many thanks. I'm another foam roller convert. I haven't got one of the medieval types that Angela has as I'm too much of a coward. That said, I believe Sweatshop have rumble rollers on sale this weekend at just 20 quid - could be tempted to step up the pain levels
Sarah - MLR went fine thanks. I'd just like there to be zero foot pain but I guess I can't complain too much. Yes, sports massage will do foot problems, I had it last year too. The thought of booking an appointment had crossed my mind.
Have a great run tomorrow. I'm resting but still in two minds whether to go for 20 over the weekend. I'd have to believe that it'll be a big benefit to me for the race to do it now I think. We shall see.
They had a case in Wales not so long back where a runner was attacked by a Buzzard - left some nasty claw marks in his bonce!
I reckon your shoes will be fine. You said they were very comfortable so I wouldn't worry. Are you doing any MP or is it all slow in this one?
I don't think any amount of foam rolling is substitute for a sports massage. You have plenty of time to book one in. I'm planning one for about a week before race day.
Wow last long run in the bag!! Eeek!! Woo woo!! Next stop London!
Glad you didn't get any blisters from the new trainers. Do you think it was those that gave you aschy legs or the slower pace? I tend to get achier legs running slower - my Northampton physio told me off once as I thought taking some friends who were doing C25K out for a run would help when I was recovering from a tight ITB but apparently when you are deliverately ruinning slower you aren't running naturally ... or something!
Glad you've been won over to the way of the compression sock!!
