Due to injury Its now a year since i did my last running event, the Cambridge Half marathon, it was while running this that I tore my Achilles.
It took a while to heal, but with help and advice from a good Physio i did mend, ironically it was the week of my bike crash that i had the all clear to start running again.
I started back with 10 min runs, then 15 min and finally back to parkrun on 11th June 2016
Since then I have built back up slowly, deciding no events till this year, with that in mind I booked freethorpe 10 mile and the Cambridge half marathon for 2017
For some reason I have had trouble finding running shoes that I really feel comfortable in, I love my Hoka and my Adidas boost but neither are wide enough for runs over 6 miles,so I have mizuno wave for the extra width but i have not fallen in love with these shoes !!
All was going well un till I caught a virus in early January, I tried to fight it off for a few weeks but finally had to give into it when it turned into a nasty chest infection and a course of antibiotics was needed.
Not only did I have to pull out of the freethorpe 10 miler i lost 3 weeks of training too, I started back not 100% well but was determined not to miss my Half marathon.
Its a week to go now, so no more running, no alcohol, and a Berocca everyday then fingers crossed I will be rested and ready !!!!!!
JUST take it steady and all shoud be O K ,,,good luck …
