After a visit to the doctor it is obvious that the ankle pain i feel during the night is wear and tear over the last 20 years of training and walking for events.On Doctors advice I will be taking pain killers before i go to sleep.The other issue is periferal a artery disease this now leaves my feet very cold at night so the answer has been hand knitted bed socks.PAD also ccauses numbness to my feet when I have shoes on after about 20 minutes the only way round this will be intervals of jogging and walking during the 34 days.The orthotics provided by my sponsor have eased the burning sensation though.

But compared to my inspirations troubles i/e Terry Fox the amputee runner these are only minor issues.

Its another very wet day so time to work on finding sponsors.
