Hi Kathy and thanks for that. I have already entered a HM on 22.3.15 and there is a 20 miler a week before which I think would be good to enter as a practice run to see how the training has prepared me. Whether I can do both is another thing all together. It’s good idea to have a couple of races beforehand so that you can practice things and also get used to the race day atmosphere.
My training plan is not going to be the usual one where the long run distance is built up gradually to 20 miles plus. It is one based on cumulative fatigue and is being put together by the coach at our running club. It has produced good results for those that have used it so I thought I’d go for it.
I don’t really know how my training will go because my company are planning a conference abroad second or third week in March and I’m also travelling to India for probably two weeks around 27th March. So I’m going to miss a crucial period of training.
How about you, have you got other races lined up? If not you should consider doing one or two.
Morning all. I have been out for a couple of short runs (3m & 4m) and calf seems to be behaving itself. I will do park run on Saturday and 5/6M on Sunday all being well. Can’t afford to lose any more time now.
Just when things were going well, bang………injury! I had to pull up on Saturday half way through my 50th park run with a calf injury. Gutted to say the least! I can only put it down to insufficient warm up on the day as it was very cold although I was wearing leggings. My first DNF. I went to see physio straightaway as I couldn’t walk and even have a limp today. It’s going to be 2-3 weeks before I run again
