Yes, things as as usual up and down like a damn fiddler's elbow! Really don't know what the problem is still. I did a run on Monday this week with my new arch support inserts and frankly thought this is it! I was running pain free and with this I had a rush of blood finishing off the 10K run with the last 2 under 3:30 pace.
The whole of this week I've been paying for that run and on Wednesday both ankles were sore to touch, even lightly, and my bum was throbbing like a bastard! I think you're right about not needing arch supports Grellan!
I was caught in traffic that morning and with my legs in pain, having to do a shit and not being able to and being late for work, I was ready to pack it all in! If it weren't for the fact that Rick and Ewen would probably never get over it, or have anyone comment on their blogs, I probably would have beat my head on my steering wheel until I gently passed away!
Anyway, I woke up this morning with almost no pain so as they say. Tomorrow is another day! I think I'm going to give the half marathon in Perth on the 7th a miss, just don't have the Ks in my legs and I'd probably break down again. There is a 10K there on the 17th that looks more my style, so I might do it instead.
If I can get through August by just jogging, no speed work, and increase the mileage I'll be happy. I want to thank you guys for writing comments you often make me see sense when I can't.
I hope summer's not too hot for you but you can always "Sneak on out beneath the stars and run!"
