It seems a long time since I was told I was badly injured at the start of this year and would probably be able to start jogging again in 6 weeks. I remember interpreting this to mean that after 42 days I could start training again. During those 42 days I did pretty much stop running completely apart from a jog each day. Day one was a 20 m jog.
Now here is the Melbourne Marathon starting tomorrow at 7 AM.
I still feel the pain from my original injury behind my knee each time I run but that usually fades away. I still get the odd same sharp pain in my hamstring….but my thinking is that I certainly don’t run fast so my hamstring should just shut up and go along for the ( slow)ride.My quads are sore but I don’t really feel them much whilst running. After the Marathon? Well that may be another story.
