Given the title you might guess that all is not well and you would be right! 

During the training for the Ultra, my ankles creeked, but they saved this for just when I got out of bed. On my morning walk to the facilities, I resembled a Penguin with my ankles refusing to bend. Some people found this funny and it wasn’t me! 

This escalated on holiday to any time I moved after a time of inactivity (holidays are for inactivity after all) it took a while to get moving, a dose of WD40 was in need.

Running was fine ish but not brilliant.

On my return to the UK I took some time off to rest the offending articles. Sunday I ran 5 miles some on road some off, the road parts hurt.

Last night I ran 6 miles with club, the terrain was rocky and uneven, by the end I was in agony. Home, pills, stretch, cry.

This morning I did intervals on the football field. Now I would not say they were fine, but were a lot better than on yesterday’s run.

I am now trawling the Internet looking for a Race held on flat even, freshly mowed grass!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!
