Just a thought - maybe this long run was harder than the last because your legs hadn't recovered (even though it may have felt as if they had)? A few coaches (eg Galloway) recommend doing the long run every other week when it gets to 18 miles to allow a full recovery. Have you considered this?
What is the longest run you are planning before the marathon?
• 5/7/2019 - lung lobe removed w/colorectal met
• Continue showing Cancer that it's not welcome back. Ever.
• Improve power:weight ratio

After yesterday my longest runs each week go 13 - 20 - 12 - 20 - 12 - 8 - race.

That's really incredible!!! Especially considering your recent knee issues. You must feel elated to have found a solution.
Thanks! Yep, I just wish I would have tried OTC orthotic insoles months ago! I could have saved myself a lot of pain and frustration if I had.
I reckon OTC means "over the counter"... but which ones are you using? How do you know if they are right for you? Could they help my shins do you think?
Let's hope it keeps working for you.
Looking forward to the 20 miler?
