Pontefract without the rain

2016-01-02 09.42.41
Last year as I was building up my mileage I first sprained my hamstring and then my quads.  This took months out of my training programme; it was time to start listening to the physo!

Last month I ran over 120 miles and avoided injury, today I managed to run a respectable time at Pontefract parkrun following the double yesterday.  This made me reflect on what I need to do to keep out of trouble as I again try and build mileage in training for the Marathon.

Stretching after exercise, warming up properly and a regime of strength exercises have all been prescribed by my very excellent physio and so far so good but I will not be running every day.  On my non-running days, the plan is to run through my strength exercise programme at the gym.

As for Pontefract parkrun today, it was brilliantly organised by Rothwell Harriers who took over for the morning.  The promised rain didn’t turn up until the run was over and it was a great morning to have a run.
