>Ok so the attempt at recovering continues, as does the less than inspriring weather!
The biggest challenge this weekend was recovering from a Casey hospitality induced hangover, the worst I have attempted to cope with for some time!
I am now just about managing to run every 2 or 3 days and the distance seems to be settling down to between 2 and 3 miles. But my knee injury is still along way from being cured and the clock is now well and truly ticking. I have given up all plans of a BG round this year, in any time and am going to concentrate on the Mountain Marathon season. In 3 weeks the clocks will go forward, opening up the schedule for evening training and in 5 or 6 weeks time I really need to be fully fit in an effort to start serious and very last minute mountain training. So today it was back to the Physio and the next trick, a Bio-Skin knee support which I am going to try in an effort to speed up the recovery process.
keith (mr partner for the LAMM and OMM) is attempting to console me by saying we finished 6t last year with myself having done barely 3 weeks of worthwhile training, but 6th is a long way from 1st and that is mission quite difficult for this year. And when he is running 35 miles in a weekend things look a little different.
