I'm back running, and after my scare from last week where I had to halt my run on 10 miles with a bad knee, I'm now good.
I was worried when I got to the ten mile mark, but passed straight through without issue; in fact my leg actually felt completely pain-free for the first time since October. It was a lovely feeling.
I've been doing hip-flexor exercises all week, and rolling my ITB to try and loosen thing up - and it's worked well.
I had to give my leg a rest this week, so apart from cycling I've not done any short runs. I expect this next week to have a couple of commute runs to work, and will finish it off with an 18 mile run next Sunday - the pinnacle of my training and two miles short from where I'd really like to be. However, I think it's fair that I amend my plan to match my situation. If I'd had fewer injuries I'd probably have done more - but back look put paid to that!
Excited, happy and a starting to get a little nervous. Please sponsor us at www.justgiving.com/dfsg4 if you can spare some cash for this good cause!
