4am drive up to the lakes...best time to be on the roads. Windermere marathon is on my to do list somewhere. Have fun.
Ha ha no stress fracture. Just did a google for a plan and that came up, as I say it just keeps me sensible and controls the return back to running otherwise I'd make it up as I went along and probably do too much too soon.
Iain - That's a really good effort on the fund raising, hope it all goes well in Edinburgh. I did it last year as well..was a stunning day for it. I was taking it easy so didn't find it too hot.
So far so good with my come back, right calf still doesn't feel quite right & is hard not to think about it whilst running. Almost feels a little numb with the odd ache that seems to move around.....weird, but no pain at all. I'm wearing a calf sleeve just on the right calf & no idea if it helps or not, but mentally it certainly does.
I've been following this recovery plan just to have something to follow really so I don't get carried away. Just completed 20min run/2min walk/10min run this morning. That's 24 miles done in May now almost a marathon.
Difficult one indeed...Have booked two breaks around Marathons this year (Barcelona & Berlin), so she gets a Holiday & I get to run somewhere nice & have a holiday Happy days right.
Except it's hard not to make the whole holiday about the run, you want to carb load, not drink (much!), check out the course, go to the expo etc etc & then after the race you're wiped out for the rest of that day & aching & not wanting to do too much for the next few days whilst still babbling on about the run.
Shorter runs / Training runs fit in much easier than Marathons.
I'm trying to cycle home once a week at the moment which is 24miles & then train back in the morning (I'll do both ways at some point but changing/showering not great at work)...Need to get Mountain Biking again, just no time at the moment.
