This has been a good week in terms of coming back from my injuries with five running days in the last week, plus a good swim and some running in the water too. A new pair of aqua shoes from Santa has helped to overcome the slippery lining in the pool.
My focus at the moment is building confidence again. After several injuries, I need to build up belief in my own body and not feel tentative about every little twinge and niggle along the way.
Not trying to do too much too soon is the hardest thing. Even today at parkrun I put in an effort to pass a few runners at the end. It is hard to contain that competitive urge!
Steve Moneghetti’s Trained by Champions program is still informing some of my decisions, especially the importance of rebuilding the habit of running each day.
Hearing Steve talking on the radio today has also got me looking forward to hearing from him at the pre-event dinner on February 9 th . Not long to wait now!
With New Year coming around, this is a great time for setting running resolutions too. Happy running everyone!!
