Note

I think the time has finally come to call time on my "attackpointing". It's been a brilliant tool to reflect upon my training (and to get things of my chest).

But I'm aware at times I can come across a bit of a fruitcake..truth is I think I probably was when I started (and in the middle period). But I feel pretty at peace with my running now. I don't like feeling as though folk think I'm still a nutter!

I knew that come November things would change (with baby number 2) but I hoped to have one last stab at achieving my goals this summer. That was messed up with injury and illness.

Yesterday I was finally able to run completely pain free- I got up at 5am and ran the Fairfield horseshoe,with my baps out- at 5am!!

It was the most amazing run ever for so many reasons- having thought I wouldn't run in the lakes at all, I got to run in the best imaginable conditions, feeling amazing- even the gland fatigue had lifted. The route was lovely.

And then I fell. Hard. Cut my knee open badly and really bruised my knee cap (taking a big chunk of skin off my hand in the process).

I'm tired of logging the trials and tribulations of running and I'm tired of putting pressure on myself to do well- when at the end of the day, who cares?!

So rather than write up my fall and feel down about it, I'm just gonna forget about it, wait until things heal and then go again.

I've still got some big running goals, but I'm gonna stop defining myself by my ability to reach them and just completely enjoy the process. I think a move away from AP is probably a good start.

So to anyone who reads it- thanks for your interest, insights and understanding! See you around and good luck with your own running aspirations!
