. . . after my various insect stings and bites which caused my legs to swell up and made the skin feel liked stretched elastic almost ready to snap?
So where am I up to after weeks of slow running, walking and jogging?
The answer is up to 6 kms (I think it's that) along a level trail in 32m 30 secs.
It's my comeback starting point.
The plan is, if using the p word is not tempting providence, to increase the time out to 50-55 mins and the distance to 10 kms over the next couple of weeks, with a view to getting back up to the half marathon distance of 21.1 kms, and hopefully testing myself in a race or two before the end of the year.
Next year will see me in the M70 classification, therefore it's in my own interest to maintain a semblance of reasonable form over the winter and keep my weight under control.
That's it. The plan in a nutshell:
Keep plodding away.
