I’m slowly making progress with the running. The most pleasant surprise of all was the realisation that my latent stamina from all the ultra running is still there. So long as I am not in pain, I can still walk massive distances without batting an eye. The thing that still eludes me is strength.
So far I have been adopting a run-walk-run training strategy, with the goal of gradually increasing the running time. I have also just entered the Solway marathon on June 4th. It’s a nice, easy route with a generous 6 hour cutoff, so even if my walk-run becomes more of a walk-walk, I should still finish easily.
Will anybody else from here be there?
