Plantar fasciitis…

…is a right pain in the arse. Probably caused by running hard (Edinburgh 1/2 Marathon with Sandy Cleland) on shoes that were past it, then not resting up. Last week was a big running week for me, about 60km, and I’m now hobbling about. Remedies include massaging with Tiger Balm (homeopathy I guess, but it smells great) and rolling a frozen Sigg bottle on the floor with knackered foot. Hope it’s OK by tomorrow, hill reps on the bike. Wikipedia Plantar fasciitis >>>

Forest run

Thetford (Norfolk) is fabulous. Well, the forest is anyway. A morning run on trail and track, in the sun, lifts the spirits, but tires the legs – 19km! Amazed to hear Cuckoo calling near the range (juvenile bird? I thought all adults were back in Africa, or maybe just leaving) and glad to see and hear Woodlark in the clear-fell areas north of Mayday Farm [Yes, these are now in BirdTrack].

Pace Calculator

Pace Calculator – a tool for runners, cyclists and swimmers to calculate pace or speed from time and distance. A three way algorithm allows any two elements to be entered to calculate the 3rd. Really useful for trying to predict future events! [or it is for me at least…] The screen to the left is an imminent release/update, but the current version can be found at link below.
