It's been a bit of a rough go - first I stubbed my toe and was off running for 6 weeks, then as I built up mileage again I got all sick with a bronchial infection.
|me running in better times.... warmer times, too
But I've pushed through it, a few times when my chest felt a bit raw and inflamed... slowly plodding and trying to get it all back.
Today I ran a 21.7km LSD - probably ill-advised, as my last LSD was only 17km, but close enough. First half marathon or more distance run since July!
Average pace on that one was 5:15/km. Today's pace? 5:38/km... but really it was about the distance, the pace will come back eventually with some hard work.
Peterborough 1/2 marathon coming up in a few weeks - that will be... interesting. Not sure what to expect or target. I'll decide closer to the date, hopefully I drop a few more pounds and find some pace.
