A Last Attempt.....OR
This week I'll make what is very likely my last attempt to restart my 3-day running program. If my knee misbehaves again I'm calling it quits. The reason for this is pretty obvious, to me anyhow : it's almost too late to be ready/trained for any decent attempt at any of the races I would have liked to take part in this year....certainly in the first half anyhow.....and motivation is steadily going downhill. It's been so long since September last year!
So, come Wednesday, I'll head off for Chev track in Bowral and do the first of three workouts for the week. If my times for the 400m repeats are slower than they should be, I won't mind, but if my knee forces me to abandon the session or is painful afterwards....THAT'S IT!
I'll continue daily walking and pool running for fitness but with no intention of competing in events I'd hoped to do before this disaster struck!
I hope I have a 'run' of luck!
