I'm still F*cked, haven't run well for 2 years now, probably since early June 2013 when I badly strained my Achilles / lower calf during one of those Battersea Park 10k's need to go and see a decent physio & not just once to see if they can put me back on track.
Very close to the point where I am no more than just a busted flush, frustrating compromised runs like London this year & Tonbridge Half Marathon last year where I was struggling to run at 6m/m pace.
No point doing stuff like Chicago Marathon unless I am going to be at my best, running PB's seems like a long time ago, need to start again & listen to others advice, need to improve core strength, flexibility & calisthenics (?)
Very close to becoming one of the many that fall by the wayside which would be a shame as I have been a useful & decent runner, probably from about late 2011 through till early summer 2013, I was a good competitive runner, no talent, but happy with the way I ran more often than not & took some positives out of this sport.
Only got myself to blame, the worse thing you can do if you are injured is ignore them & try to run through them, that has never worked out well & will never work out well in the long term.
