So half way through my 20 week plan and my Marathon prep just keeps getting worse. My injury isn't magically going away, I have just returned from a run of less than a mile, shin and ankle pain and running with a limp throughout meant I returned home with my tail between my legs. I had enjoyed a 5 mile run on Thursday with each km faster than 5min km's but that was all on the running front.
Got out on the bike again and managed 25 miles at better than 15mph which as it was only the 2nd ride I have done in the last 2 years I was pretty pleased. Out to Wallasea Island on flat roads and with the wind on my back I felt like a champ going out at 17.5mph before turning tail and managing 13.5mph or so on the return with the wind against me. Really pleasant cycling conditions and not much traffic, I even managed to navigate my way out there by myself. Have definitely got a taste for cycling again and with the injury seeming to only flare up running it's even more reason for me to get out on two wheels.
If Lauren and I can sort out the timings I may even go for a swim this week. Anything to keep myself active, I hate injuries!
