LAST LSD - NEW SHOE SHOPPING

Tomorrow will be my last long run before the PIG. I am going for approximately 20 miles. 20 years ago on my last long before the Columbus Marathon, I was running from Springfield ,Ohio to Troy, Ohio and my rt knee pain was so bad that I did not make it past 10 miles. It's one of those things you never forget. All that training and no marathon. Today when my feet hit the floor, my rt achilles was very tight. When I walk, it pops alittle. I was thinking of getting new shoes but I plan on going to the Naperville Running Company today so I'll see what they say. I also want to get some Power Gel rather GU. It seems like the Gu is upsetting my stomach.

My 1st marathon I developed a tendon strain on top of my foot (?!?!?!) 2 weeks before the marathon. The Dr. prescribed rest, ice, etc. I told him I'm been training for 8 months for this marathon, I ain't missing it and insisted he do something. He gave me a cortisone shot (something I would never do under normal situations). It got me through the marathon so that was good.

Good luck getting this figured out. Hopefully new shoes will fix things. That's usually the case, although we always seem to wait until it happens rather than get it taken care of before, right?

New shoes sounds like a good idea.

In fact, I need new shoes too.

Anyway, enjoy your last long run before the PIG!!
