B2B - I'm a big fan of Montane gear (and RAB) and do most of my walking in the Terra pants.
That 50 is getting ever closer - I thought I would have seen mention of some longer runs, or are you easing back now.
Welcome Froglet - I did a similar plan to start me off, but you need to make sure you resist the urge to run too fast early on in your comeback- that's the way to an early injury. Hold back and it will all come good in the end.
As you say we all think we can just come straight back and run like we used to. Sounds like the Marathon might be something to keep on the back burner and just enjoy the shorter distances. Its a distance I would like to do at some point, just don't fancy having to do all those long runs.
Gamineez - Good luck with the training for the half. I built my long run up by a mile a week from 6 to 13 and it seems to have worked well for me. It was just the snow and ice that made it hard. Glad I wasn't training for a full marathon. It was snowing again at the weekend.
Off to the dentist this morning to get my 4 implants fitted, at last. 4 months of wearing a denture has been too long. Just not looking forward to the mega invoice.
