I have to be thankful for small mercies and slow starts, because, at least a start is a start. After a fashion I’m back on the road. Six steady miles this evening has allowed me to hope that I’ve managed to leave my injury behind. Those six miles give me a grand total of about fourteen for the week – more than I would have thought possible last Monday. I took my first very tentative running steps back last Wednesday and I’ve been easing slowly back into action since then. I’m hoping that with a little luck I’ll be able to gradually resume normal training over the next week.
I’m setting an interim target of being fit enough to get around the Dublin Marathon in six weeks time, but I’ll obviously only do so if it’s safe to do so.
So, in terms of documenting each and every training session from the low point of my first ‘Project 140’ post, this is what I’ve done since then;
