Nice 10K to finish the week

Hi All, Work has been getting the better of me. Lots of long days commuting and working in Kent so apologies I have not been on here much. My Post tibial tendonitis is still with me - now into the 4th month but I am back to running 3 times a week albeit gingerly.

Went out for a slow 10k last night and felt really strong. It was only after 6K I felt my legs were working properly and the hills were okay. Did it in 1 hour 9 mins with my Garmin warnig me every time I went quicker than 6min 15 per km.

Felt really good to be out running.

Hope you all have great runs at parkrun etc

It is great. No walking in this one and lots of hills it was great fun.

How are you getting on Vix? Any more 10Ks planned?

I have one next Sunday, but running in April has been limited to only 2 /3 runs so I doubt I am ready. Too much travel and life getting in the way. Back in chile now, weather has FINALLY turned so plan is to get out there now

Hope it goes well Vix

Sounds as if things are going really well now. At least you are not completely laid up and building up patiently.

Thanks Ully. Still trying not to overdo it but it is hard

GF this is good news indeed. A 10K in 69 mins is bloody good especially if you're a bit below par. Keep it steady dude and look after those tibial tendor thingy's!

Thanks Dan my Garmin tells me I'm not as fit as I was but hopefully this tendon will sort itself out

If you can keep running 3 times a week you will build up your former strength. 10 k is lovely isn't it, just far enough. I have another one scheduled for tomorrow, my last before my race.

Good luck with the race MW
