Thanks B. I've been running for 16 years as a replacement for football. I ran like a footballer for about 10 years but kept succumbing to lower leg injuries esp achilles. I decided to focus on technique and toyed with Chi but have now transformed my style using POSE. My injuries are now few and far bewteen. I prefer longer stuff - off road duathlons, marathons and halfs. I have been distracted over the past year gaining weight and losing condition hence the base training idea.
I'll keep you all posted as I progress with the trial!!
I have just started a Hadd base programme. My plan is to follow Hadd to develop my aerobic system over the next 12 weeks then switch to a race specific programme inthe next 10 weeks as prep for a half marathon. Am I on the right lines?
Great to hear all your stories. I too ended up on the last double decker and had to force downmy breakfast 20 mins before the start. What happened to the buses? I'm also feeling flat but I'm doing the Parkrun tomorrow so this should perk me up. Well done all - great results.
