Well how is my training going I hear you ask :)
Ok, I don't really hear anything..... The voices aren't really there saying run more!!
So it's however many weeks until the early May bank holiday. My last long training run 8 days before the marathon is The London Marathon :)
How has my training been this year? Well... I had a cold so didn't run over the new year started on about the 4th of Jan, and for the first three weeks this year I managed just over 50km each week. I've done a bit more now and am over 169km for the month. I'm hoping to get over 192km for the month, which is 120 miles. That is actually more than any month in 2015 thanks to my crappy knee. Which whilst it still isn't perfect it's good enough. I need to rest it for a day after long runs, but can do 2 or 3 5 or so miles days in a row without needing to rest it.
My mediate cruciate ligament is what I think is buggered, spent a lot of physio to no avail last year, have an appointment at the Doctors soon, to see if he can refer me to someone else,to take a look at it.
So hopefully a good year of plodding ahead.
