Tarpley – it’s the best of what running is about; the race always has a positive vibe and an added bit extra given it’s our home Pacers event.
If I’m asked how my running’s been going, I haven’t wanted to sound like a broken record and so, with yet another recent injury setback, I haven’t wanted to talk about running much recently.
I've been trying to get more faster-paced sessions and races in, with two Parkruns over the holidays, the County XC and my first track session for several months.
Alumni XC, Wimbledon Common 5 mile race 31:33, 39th place.
Finally back in a cross country race over a year after my last one at Woodbridge (Dec. 17) when a calf injury reoccurred.
Hereward Relay – stage 1 Peterborough to Whittlesey 6.9 miles, 42:01, 8th place.
It was great to be back racing and wearing thePacers vest.
Feeling a little stronger, fitter and breathing a little less heavy week by week but I’m only taking it one week at a time in terms of training.
So, I'm back running after the latest setback - saw James at Abbeyfields today to get some rehab strength exercises for my feet and ankles and came away feeling reassured too.
Frustrations and words of wisdom
