No Keswick to Barrow 2012 for Scrib.

2 May

For the past few months I’ve been in the ‘Runners injury circle’. Whats this?

Its the situation I found myself in when trying to train for the 2012 London marathon and describes the loop you can get into trying to train with injury.

The more you train the more your injuries niggle. The less you train the more you worry about if you are ready for the event!

There comes a point, in some cases (and in my case), where its just best to throw in the towl and take some time off just to let your body repair properly.

Because of this I’ve decided to take a month off running after completing the 2012 London marathon. Normally two to three weeks would be sufficient for this type of repair break, but I’ve decided on a month due to various injury and medical reasons.  I’ll still be doing some running related activities, stretching and foam rolling to keep things ticking over, but no actual running.

So its no Keswick to Barrow this year for me! Which I’m actually going to really miss!

A huge ‘Good luck’ to everyone who is walking, or running it this year and enjoy your 42 miles. I’ll hopefully see you next year as I have a personal best to beat!
