Recovery making good progress. Managed a 17k run last weekend without any ankle pain, and I'm managing to crank the mileage up to 40-50k a week. The problem is that my pace is well down on this time last year and I expect my times for the tr24 to be a lot slower than last year.
Still good to be running without pain eventually, and long may it continue...
Sounds good, your weekly mileage (or metres as you put it) is decent. Do you split your runs up, with the classic... Long slow runs, shorter tempo runs, hills or hill reps and intervals?
As for the garmin, I am not usually fussed with times normally and I know of the inaccuracies associated with the system.
When's your 24 hr thingy again? Hoping for another in depth write up if you do not mind
The tr24 is at the end of the month, so not long at all now.
If I hadn't had almost three months out with my ankle, I'd be already putting in the mileage and mixing it up with speed work. But as I'm playing catch-up I'm focusing on the mileage, and doing mostly 10k runs most mornings and then one longer run a week. Over the next three weeks I'm going to be doubling up and doing two 10ks on some days, one in the morning and one later in the evening to get used to that, then try and do that on consecutive days.
Really just want to get the mileage in my legs without doing any damage to my ankle again. After the tr24 I'll be looking to up my mileage (and change my garmin to miles instead of km) and of course increase the length of the long run each week.
I'm doing a lot of the miles in my 'barefoot' trail shoes, and think my transition to them has gone ok, although the injury came at the wrong time really, if there's ever the right time to get injured!
