I see Realbuzz doesn't change, I can still spend 20 minutes writing a blog update and then it loses it when I hit publish!!
Lets try again, in a slightly shorter version.....
Ran a Reindeer Dash race in early December at Bramham Park near Harrogate, very hilly, very muddy, very fun, very slow (under and hour, but not by a lot).
Got seriously injured 3 days before Christmas, no running until April (plantar fasciitis - 2 weeks on crutches).
Since April I have been averaging about 15 miles a week over about 5 runs, but I do feel the foot occasionally, and after so long out, my fitness and weight levels had seriously gone to pot, so even a mile was a struggle at first. But I am not at a stage where 4 miles feels ok, and doesn't kill me. Did I really used to do 20 mile training runs for fun?
This year has been tough at work and various other roles I undertake, and I have never missed exercise like I have missed it this year. It keeps me sane, it lets me collect my thoughts after initially clearing my head, and never again will I take it for granted. I still feel the injured foot occasionally, hence not ramping anything up further just yet, but it is starting to be a rarer occurence when I do feel it, so I am starting to consider plans moving forward.
There, a 7 month update in a quarter of the time it took to write last time..... If it works, I'll fill in some gaps next time....
