I am a slow plodder but as I run to keep fit & enjoy it & not to win races I have learnt to accept this. I have developed a love for muddy running & quite enjoy long slow runs as opposed to short faster ones.
I seem to be forever plagued by injury, but am told I have hypermobility which is apparently bad for injury free running so I have taken up Chi Running in the hope of at least reducing my injury risks. I struggle to practice Chi properly as a lot of my running is with the dogs.
The big part of my 2012 aims is to spend more time cross training, especially core work. I now have a bike so will be cycling more often too. I will be aiming for 500m again but have decided to go for enjoying what I do rather than stress too much over targets.
