Mark I am notorious for foam rolling the last week before every one of my marathons. I am always convinced that I have ITB (although intensity and mileage reduces), shin splints and the best of I overpronate more causing me we spots of discomfort in the rest of the body as a compensate. So it is normal :-)

Dimitris, it's only gone and happened, I'm full of bloody cold today and feel awful. I just hope I can shake it by Sunday and that it doesn't ruin my time completely. Arse.

Use an iron on a medium heat together with a hot tea-towel - any hotter any you'll singe your pubes

By the time I reached the eve of my first marathon, I was convinced the pain that had developed in my foot would cause me to DNF after the first mile.
The morning of the event - I forgot the pain, and got a GFA :-)

Second Marathon was similar, with a cold that only cleared up on the morning of the event - and I shaved over 2 mins off my PB.

Forget physios - it's shrinks we should be seeing!

Cheers for those words of encouragement furry. Taken on board. Currently sat in bed snorting everywhere, nice. Day before the race and feeling like white, let's hope its all magically gone in the morning or I shall be most pissed off after 30 weeks of concentrated training. It.
