I haven't been running much the last few weeks, the odd run here and there as I am still cautious with regards to my lower legs. Last thing I need, going into the new year, is an injury. That said I have my 10k tomorrow and although my head says take it easy and enjoy the atmosphere, my heart says go out full speed...hmmmm I guess I'll see what the days holds before I decide how to run it.
Good luck to those racing tomorrow too. The weather looks like it will be ideal for a trot around the block..
Mamafox - I have a race this weekend but it's only a 10k. I am going enter a couple of halves in march and then I plan on doing windemere marathon in may. That's the race plans so far but it is subject to change..
I managed to get out for a light run this evening as my leg has been feeling a lot better over the past few days, I managed to resist the urge to run at pace and kept the pace fairly steady. Touch wood, all seems to be on the mend. Feeling a bit more positive as i was getting really down with the prospect of not running for much longer. I will treat sundays race as a fun run and just enjoy the atmosphere. I'll have both my boys there to support me so that will be good. Just hope the weather is kind.
Shades - the pain/tightness has gone on my right leg but the left is still sore but that happens to be my weaker leg.. At least this has happened at the end of the year when I don't really have any races planned.. I'll get it sorted and then pan things for next year.. Can't believe this year is almost over...
Begining to get very despondent with my leg issue as I tried to head out today and ended up running around the block and back home. I so scared of doing further damage if I run so I am not. I will go see a sports injury clinic near to where I work and see if I can shed some light on what I could of done... Just hope it's just muscular..
on on a slightly different note...remember that VLM cheat Jason Scotland Williams? Does anyone know if he was able to replicate his 1:01 half time. I know he was invited to run the Richmond half in September and if he could run sub 70, they would donate 5000 to his charity..but I can't find him on the finishers list...
