Legs all good. Went to the osteo/physio yesterday and she is very happy with my progress. We have decided that I should go back every now and again as a prophylactic. Pilates this morning and 10 miles tomorrow (same as last Friday).
Next week is when we record the Strictly launch show so I am making it my knock back week in terms of total mileage.
Welcome back an old friend - The Fartleks session! Can't remember the last time I did one of those. My first speed work this year. So far it has been all about time on feet but I need to start adding some spice to my training. No problems so I'm very pleased that I did it.
I like the idea of both long term and short term targets. Obviously running a spring marathon ticks one of the boxes but leads to all sorts of landmarks on the way as well. The 10 mile run last week felt enormous in terms of my injuries over the last 7 years and for the first time in a long time I can really visualise the start line of VLM. Running sub 4 may much more of a challenge but 26.2 miles now looks possible.
I've registered with Parkrun but not sure when I can get to run on a Saturday morning, it would certainly involve leaving Mrs RR in bed.
I seriously have to rejig my weekly running schedule. 10 miles on Friday followed by 5 this morning has left me cream crackered. My plan was not to run 2 before my LSR but I now think I need to not run the two days following the Long run. Also once strictly starts I won't be able to run on either Fridays or Saturdays. Dance Tuesday evenings, Pilates Thursday morning. Work Thursday afternoon and 14 hour days on Friday and Saturday. mmm?!
