Just wanted to share that I have hit 50% of my target for the year. There were times after the London 10k in January where I was sat on the Injury Couch wondering when I could run again and could I regain the fitness that couch to 5k gave me. It is now just over a year since I graduated and I am well on my way to running 1000kms this year.
If that wasn't good enough today I went for an interval run with my wife and dog. It was drizzly which felt brilliant. I bought Rowena a Garmin 910XT for Xmas as she prefers swimming but was inspired to try running. She has only been running since March so today we tried intervals using her heart rate as a guide we ran until her heart rate hit 170 then walked until it recovered to 140. Result was her furthest distance 7.85k in 1 hour and 3 minutes.
We got to run, we got to walk, our faithful hound trotted behind us the whole way and it was agreat start to the morning.
For all those on the IC - take time to recover you will get better. For those struggling - keep at it you will get through it and the rewards are truly life changing.
Happy Running all
