I wonder if anyone can share my worry or give some advice? I completed Loch Ness Marathon 2011 successfully and was getting really in to my running therefore got places in the manchester 2012 marathon and the wilmslow half.
Both of which I had to cancel.
I was gutted to have to cancel but I simply didn't put the groundwork in. Nearly a year on - I have piled on weight, am eating and drinking whatever I want and feel rubbish.
I am the kind of person who needs a goal. I have (again) got a place for the manchester marathon 2013. I have been out for a few steady runs and have really struggled.
I guess what I am trying to ask the more experienced runners out there is whether I am out of my league to be able to get back my previous ability by april 2013?? And if so - how do I get back into it?!?!?
