Hit a bit of a low point on the Marathon training. Last week I have covered a lot of miles in the car, probably not had as much time to stretch, do resistance band work and so I seem to be picking up a few niggles. Going out shortly to do a nice slow, easy run and hope I feel ok.
You will do, resist the temptation to speed up when you feel in your flow unless you get towards the end and still feel the same way. Conserve

After my 18 mile run on Sunday I felt fine. However woke up on Monday Morning with sharp pains in the top of both feet (metartarsal area) just done a 5 mile run in agony with it. Has anyone else had this ? Could it be something like tendonitis ?

That's weird, yes! I ran 30km on Sunday 5th September, and was pretty tired after it. About 3 o'clock on Monday morning, I woke with pains in both feet, stretching up both my shins. It felt like cramp, but was on the front of my legs, not the muscle areas. No amount of stretching alleviated the pain. It dissipated after about ten minutes, and I've not had it since.

I rested for two days, and since then I've run 5k, 8k, a 20k on Sunday just gone, and 10k today. I've cycled 10k and played football once and there has been no sign of the pain again. I've had shin splints before, and it definitely wasn't that.

Managed 8k just now, longest run since covid so finally starting to feel fitter. Will rest a few days now and then attempt a longish one on Sunday morning. Love running on days like today.

Great news pal. Must have been a very frustrating and worrying time.

I’ve heard shin splints is linked to the top of the tendons in your feet. Been in agony today could hardly run for the train after the match tonight. I think a few days rest is required . So frustrating !!
