So it's all aboard the pain train again for everyone!

I am trying my very bestest to commit to a regular S&C programme now, as i don't really need any more injuries/lay offs to tell me that actually listening to the physio's advice and actually doing what she says will likely help!

So i'm 100% success rate at the moment with 2 in 2 weeks! My wife is just getting into a bit of cycling, so she's been going out for an hour or so twice a week. I've decided that rather than watching climbing videos on YouTube and stuffing my face with biscuits, that i should use those two hours for rolling, stretching and strength stuff. Fingers crossed.

I'm going to do some easy running for a couple of weeks, build the mileage reasonably quickly, but nothing too crazy. Then i'm going to go back to adding in some intensity - one session a week with club or some friends and one day a week steady hill reps to preapre for the Welsh 3K in 6 weeks time - which i cannot wait for. They (my friend's company) ran the course over two days on that stunning, hot weekend and some of the pics are just epic! Bet it's bl00dy misty when i go up!!

Grifter - we all know you've got what it takes in the locker, just need that execution now!

Good luck everyone else!

GB - What always amazes me after some down time is how quickly it comes back. When ramping up to marathon training, I generally start with a Parkrun somewhere in the mid 19's and end up low 18's within about a month of 70k+ weeks, pushing on from those times is then the hard bit.

I am having a couple of weeks off now and am half writing the above to convince myself that all will come back when required Smile

Same as Grifter, planning on not racing longer than 10k thsi year. Also thinking about a triathlon in September. Maybe.
Aiming to run Southend Parkrun this saturday. First in a while. Going on my recent 10k form i think i'm looking at 18.20 ish. The plan is to push on and try and hit some new pbs in the autumn.... (17.58 and 37.31 from 2012/2013)
I'll feel a lot more comfortable trying to run 2h5xmins in the spring if i can do that....

With an 18 min 5k you should be on for a sub 37 10k Twhat i reckon.

And i hope you're right YKK - i'm off out at lunchtime to have a go at tjhe Strava #mymile thing. No running at all for 1 month and no speedwork for coming up to a year, with the exception of a couple of 5k races, last one back in April. Sh!t me this is going to be ugly!! Mad

Doesn't seem like having time off has done you any harm... maybe you should not run for 6 months before your next marathon. You'd probably still sub-3 you cheeky fecker Very Happy

It's 'only' a mile though. I get progressively sh!tter with every additional mile!! I think with a bit more training, and getting back to a bit of speedwork i should be able to knock down my PB this summer if i go to the track and find some other similar level clubmates to help me push.
