Oops Ferret
You’ll be fine TM just avoid my mistake of thinking just because PF gives no lasting damage it was no harm to run lightly or walk as it wasn’t *that* bad *rollseyes at self*. Eventually it gets that bad. And you can muck up other parts in compensating which may not recover.

Popping in to commiserate with TM over the foot problems. I hope one or several of your therapies works and the shoes soften a bit for you.

Dubai is not somewhere I would choose for a holiday - no parkrun ;-) - but I hope she and you have a good time, Phil.

I'm now at the other end of the holiday destination spectrum, in Sidmouth :-) I was thinking of a sea swim when we arrived this morning when it was nice and sunny but it's clouded over a bit now and I'm debating whether to woman up and get out there, or just walk with the dog and OH along the beach.

About This Thread

Welcome to the 700 miles in 2019 thread, everybody welcome. The thread motto is:
'700 miles is neither necessary nor sufficient'

All you have to do is run about 1.91 miles per day or 13.46 miles per week or 58.33 miles per month and take a picture when you get to 700 miles of either you or the spot where you reached the target or both if you want to. Extra points for bins :-) And if you go under or over 700 miles nobody will mind.

Join in the chat on the friendliest thread around - all things discussed and sometimes even some running is talked about.

Group link is here:

Mileage league is here:

You can set your mileage targets for 2019 here:

If you do reach 700 miles before the end of the year, please consider resetting your targets, it is encouraging to keep moving up the table :-)

If you have any target races you want highlighted for 2019, send an fmail to Serendippily and they will appear here:
