In the end I didn’t run in the Southport half-marathon, which was held on Sunday. I felt I was too far behind where I wanted to be in my training and that it would have been just a macho effort, rather than a race I wanted to run, if I took part.
However, I am now running again and it feels good to be out in the summer air. My pace is a bit down on where I was a few weeks ago, but distance feels fine. There is no knee pain either, which is great. So … onwards and upwards. There’s just about 90 days to the Chester marathon: a scary thought!
My next post will return to a Zen theme.
