Puts my running into perspective a bit. Only hitting the low 30s per week (sometimes low 20s) for the past couple of months (and that's a step up from where I was before) so I'm going to try a little experiment.
If I can get through my long run on Sunday (16miles) without a niggle then I'm going to get my name down for Manchester and give it a crack. Let's see what low running volume plus a shed load of cycling can do to marathon performance.....
I predict that the answer is "slow with lots of pain" but I'm up for it anyway. Thanks for the positive nudges.
GD, keep it rested. Very conservative comeback at this stage since you just need to get to the start line in one piece. Rub some cake into it. I'd recommend a fruit based cake product for lower limb injuries.
Yes it was Ant. I have confused threadsters mug shots. Doh.
