No More Training

Well, it's all over now. I ran my last training run last night and it's time to taper (and hopefully get rid of this heel problem in the process). I did eventually manage to get a good series of runs in the last few days after all. I did a 20km off roader on Sunday plus an hour on the bike, a 20km multi-terrain run on Monday and last night, while away from home on a business trip to Stockport, I hacked my way round a lovely 25km run along a disused railway track (Middlewood Way) and back via the Macclesfield canal. This included running the down the impressive flight of locks and aquaduct in Marple. The heel probelm is still hovering around in the background but not getting any worse so maybe I can get rid of it while I rest.

Pass the pasta please.

Surely you'll still be doing some short runs? Will you carry some anti-inflammatories in case the heel thing acts up during Jungfrau?

I'm going to play it by ear and see how I feel. I suspect I'll take the dog out for a jog or two. I'm hoping that I can sort out my heel before the race. said...
