Thanks for joining in ParisRunner and JM89, good to know I'm not alone!
I've been guilty on the classic 'newbie' error of running each training session much too hard, with no easy runs/ development of aerobic fitness.
Ah yes, I have a few running buddies like that. Luckily, I'm far too lazy to go out and smash all my training runs! I really enjoy the easy runs and they definitely benefit you. As long as you remember 'hard days hard, easy days easy' you can't go too far wrong.
Really sorry to hear about the stress fracture JM89. Sounds like you're well on your way back to fitness though, keep it up!
