Hopefully I'll be marathon fit again by April 18th next year.
I probably could have completed it, but running is too important to my mental heath at the moment to risk further injury.
I just ran my fastest 5k since October.
25'10, I'm quite pleased with that.
I woke up at 0230 and could not get back to sleep, by 0530 I gave up and went out for a run instead.
I covered almost 9 miles in 90 minutes, in my longest post-injury run. I might try to make it 10 miles in 100 minutes next week.
While out running I saw four herons, a herd of deer, and one cyclist.
I knew I could not improve on yesterday's 5k time, so today I went for distance - just about #running a sub-hour 10k.
A few month back, on another Saturday morning, I was running to a parkrun, down some twisty country roads.
I turned one bend to find an entire herd of deer blocking half the road.
I did not run past them, for I have a fear of spooking any animal bigger than me, and that goes double for a flock of them.
Later that same day someone completed a marathon in under two hours, and I was given my hashing name.
