Another weekend over and back at work but at least it's dry. Running for me has been slowly getting better and I'm now starting week 6 of my transformation back to being a proper runner again. I'm finding that my short routes that used to take nearly 25 minutes are now over in less than 20 so there's a definite improvement there. I haven't run any longer runs recently so that's the next target but I'll probably wait until the nights are getting lighter before upping my training. No need to scunner myself at this stage. Plan for tomorrow is to get signed up for the gym at Scotstoun for a bit of cross-training and it's probably time to start thinking about spring races.
I've been out running regularly now since the New Year and the injury hasn't really changed much. It's not getting worse but not really getting any better.
Anyway moaning about it won't help! I'm thinking it might be a good idea to start mixing up my training with more cross-training and maybe start running more trails. I suppose I could go and see a physio but I don't want to spend a fortune on their various psuedo-scientific treatments - shining a red light on the injury is my favourite but sticking tape on your leg is another good one. [Apologies to anyone who uses these treatment methods!]
Can that's some good running. I'm doing about 39 miles in 3 weeks at the moment! I've got a niggling injury which after a bit of googling seems to be peroneal tendonitis. I've had it since October but it's not clearing up. That's the main reason for keeping my runs short at the moment but I'm itching to start upping the distance again. The weather outside isn't exactly helping my motivation though.
Afternoon folks. It's been a long time but I thought I'd pop in and re-aquaint myself with my former running life! No talk of ultras from me (yet!) but it's good to get back to running regularly again. The focus for me is to get a few 5 and 10Ks under my belt early 2013 then maybe think about an autumn marathon. I had a few plans for some international adventures but I'm thinking it might be better to just concentrate on the running first rather that plan all these runs but not actually run them.
