OO53- Belated happy birthday, only another year before I join the half century brigade.
My parkrun PB is 18.01 (which is frustrating) so not too far off last week.
I really had a poor start to 2015 with a hip flexor niggle that kept me out of, Wokingham HM, Reading HM and London. This persuaded me to change my training habits, as the constant pavement pounding from running was always giving me grief.
I've had a trouble free year on the injury front since adding the bike and swim to my training regime. And I do feel swimming 2/3 times a week seems like a physio sesh on my legs as they always feel nice and loose after.
It doesn't seem to have effected my speed over shorter distances but I will find out what shape I'm in when I run Wokingham in Feb.
8 miles this morning with 4 at threshold, was a little tough.
I'm following the up to 55 miles p&d schedule for London, which allows me to bike/swim too.
I don't know if I'll have enough miles in the legs for a pb attempt, only time will tell.
