First off, its been ages since I've posted an update!
|Nice clear day for a 16mile run|
But at least this time its good news as after several dry needling sessions with my local sports physio (Bodymend) and some shorter runs and also cycling now and then I feel I'm finally coming back to form!
So much so that I even did a 20mile run last Friday morning and I managed a 16mile run yesterday morning, the 20mile last week was my longest distance I've done since doing the Connemara 100 at the start of August.
For anyone that has previously read my previous posts you might be aware that I did sign up to Dublin Marathon this year, however unlike last year where I aimed to knock 13min off my PB by aiming for sub 3:20 this year I'm not trying to do anything like that. Especially considering the injury issues I experienced after last year!
I've learned a very hard lesson after last years100mile, althoughI did do a cracking PB on a half-marathon in September I ended up off the road after the Dublin Marathon because I didn't respect just how much recovery time I might need after the 100mile.
So I'm taking it easy next weekend :)
