UTA was a massive journey both physically and mentally and now that I had achieved the goal of completing it, it was time to focus on a new goal - getting moving again!
Honestly, I was pretty banged up after UTA and after a couple weeks of walking I started running again only to discover a cranky ITB. It was only... more

Still feeling a little bit limpy from my Jabulani fail I got into the physio as soon as I could. With UTA only 6 weeks away I was feeling pretty shattered but hopeful things would still work out OK.

After an awesome weekend away I was keen to reach my goal of running again without walking intervals. Hopefully by the end of this week that would be a reality.

Got to love it. I just started getting back into it from a minor calf injury only to be struck down with the man flu...
It was a 16k Friday then a 32k Saturday that caused the injury. I actually didn't notice I had done any harm until my recovery run on Monday. It was on my way back that I started... more
