New job, biking-related injuries, lack of time and general apathy mean that I haven't run this year.
I started running again 2 weeks ago and can't believe how much fitness I've lost.
I was at my fittest ever last year and, in my mind, am still pretty quick. My quads and calves disagree quite violently. I'm doing 30 easy minutes 4-5 times a week and planning to increase time every 3 weeks. Not increasing speed until December. This week is better than last week.
I've entered a half marathon in March to get me back into the swing of it and I will go under 1:18:35 (6min miles).
