It’s taken nearly a year but I think I finally have my racing mojo back. Following Sundays half, I have entered the following races:
|09-Jun-13||Half Marathon||Southend Half|
|28-Jun-13||5 mile||John O’Callghan 5|
|07-Jul-13||10k||Regents Park 10k|
|14-Jul-13||5k||Wardown Park 5k|
|01-Sep-13||10k||Regents Park 10k|
|06-Oct-13||Half Marathon||Cardiff Half|
|02-Mar-14||Half Marathon||Bath Half|
Whilst I was training for the London marathon last year, someone at Striders told me it’d taken them a year to get over it and get back into running and racing. I remember scoffing at the thought of it, but looking back over the last year the same has been true for me. I didn’t suddenly hate running, I just stopped prioritising it and did other things instead. I think it’s been good to have a break, but I’m ready to get back into it now, and as I intend to throw my name in the hat for VLM again, I plan to be HM fit in October to give me a good base to start from.
The list above is just for starters – I’m open to chucking a couple more HMs in the mix, so if any ‘athoners out there have any local to them and would like an 11m30s pacer, give me a shout!
