Brighton half this morning. Fitness wise, I am getting back to some standard, but unfortunately, recurrence of a knee injury meant that all my sub 7 splits up to mile 9 were to no avail, as I hauled myself in at 1:37 having had to walk for about half a mile and run very lopsided for the last few miles(!) Could be worse, but I am worried that the injury might be serious enough to harm the Brighton Marathon attempt.
On the bright side, the weather was lovely, the run was well supported and up to mile 8 I was kind of enjoying myself
Quiet month for me I'm afraid. Was hoping to log a long run at the weekend, but away with family, so a total of 3 miles in 3 days(!) I have a Half planned for next weekend, so will keep the mileage down this week.
Good running Jason. Marathon not far enough for you today!
Well done JR. Good start for the month.
My marathon is not until April (Brighton) but at my age, I don't clock up so many miles in training anyway(!) Happy to have completed a 15 mile, very windy run over the Downs this morning. Complete with new off road running shoes.
