Injury and illness

A bad back and cold have severely curtailed half marathon preparations this week. I managed 4.5 miles on Tuesday but since then very little. I am easing back in and ran around 2 miles at a steady pace last night, which felt ok so ready to do something longer on Wednesday. Squash tonight but I need to take it fairly gently at this stage.

I am considering entering an indoor rowing event in December. I have competed in a few in the past but not for a couple of years. I am putting together a training plan – I would like to break 7 minutes for 2000m and hopefully get somewhere close to 6.50 but that will be a challenge.

Rowing is good cross training for running and it is quite an attractive option on cold wet evenings. I don’t mind running in bad weather; the first few minutes are always the worst and then it becomes quite enjoyable.
