And so my running journey starts again…
It’s been a while since I laced up my running shoes – more or less 9 months to the date to be exact – but now the time has come to get off my butt and get on my feet again.
The marathon really sucked the running life out of me and it messed up my poor knee that I have tried to rehabilitate by doing mainly strength training for almost a year.
But with the Hackney Half Marathon coming up in May, Nike Women’s 10K in June, Copenhagen Half Marathon in September, Amsterdam Half Marathon in October and the London MARATHON in April 2016 – I really have no more excuses to give.
The main goal this year is to get back into running and doing it injury free. But my other not-so-secret goal is to try to run a sub-2 half marathon in October, something I’ve always wanted to do but never been able to.
Hopefully by then I will have reached a certain level of fitness which will mean that I can make it through training for another marathon without injuring myself like last time (and maybe even improve my time, who knows?!).
So I hope you’re up for the ride as it’s gonna be another year (and a bit) with me moaning and complaining about everything running ;)
