That's me back from my hols in Zante. One run only this month but get back into it tomorrow
My foot was getting much better until the last day when my mate pushed me in the shallow end and I smashed it on the pool floor. But feels OK now. New shoes for me end of month as old ones well past sell by date.
So put on a bit of weight and have decided to make a long term goal to keep me going and its to run 1000 miles before next years hols (booked for 23/7 next year booked while we were away) and loose 2 stone.
Mid way through last month terrible pain on right sole felt as if arch collapsing. Last run Saturday was agony for first mile. I know I need new shoes and will get them on my return and hopefully 2 weeks rest will do me good
Am off to Zante on 6/8 to see our best friends from London haven't seen him for 2 years so will be a blow out. In a way I wish I could have a free month to build on July
BUT one thing I learned is higher mileage is the key, momentum is the key. I had yesterday off but today felt energised. I love this sport and wish I was younger and I would defo get my 3.30 for the marathon !!
Got my copy of Running with the Kenyans today and so want to read it but want to keep for holidays !!
