Since the start of the year I have been trying (desperately trying) to get back into stride, my ankle (and other linked injuries) have caused me to be a bit stop start this year, but now is the time to start a fresh and I have a “reason” for the running.
That “reason” is still under raps but that is due to my lack of confidence of my injury, when I feel I am totally over it I will divulge and I be taking you all through the preparations, the hard graft that is required to compete.
This week is week one of the build up to October and I have achieved a massive total of 11 miles (oh yeh!! look out Mo (Farah) here I come!!). This compiled of 3 easy miles on Monday, then met up with Phil Parry on Thursday for a run round the BAWA field. Then today thought I would have an easy 3 miles until I started running and the easy run ended up being a tempo and achieved a totally unexpected 18 mins 30 for 3 miles. Ok not the best (2 mins off of my PB) but its a start and its a start in the right direction.
Its my sons 4th Birthday on Monday so I am taking the weekend off running, but I am totally looking forward to Monday and running again.
All I now have to say is “BRING IT ON!!!”
Happy running to all
