100 days and counting

 

An accidental run streak

Last year my marathon training was interrupted by injuries. My calves were always very tight, and as I continued training my feet and heals in particular hurt. Eventually my physio diagnosed Plantar Fasciitis, and it resulted in a 5 week break from running and a DNS (did not start) for the Milton Keynes marathon.

So this year I restructured my training plan to include more strength and conditioning, stretching and foam roller sessions. However because I am so poorly disciplined with non running exercise, I decided to precede each workout with a 1-2 mile warm up run. The result is that today was my 100th consecutive day of running.

Has it worked? Well I am fit, and will be taking my place on the start line on Sunday for the Brighton Marathon, so yes! I have had no injuries yet this season, although the winter weather has been bad for my asthma, and I don’t feel as fast as last year. However I will at least be running the race, and I do feel I can get a new PB on Sunday.
