The track I do my speed work at was crowded last week, so I kept the time trial distance short at 500 metres, running it in 1:47. Even though that’s not fast, it was faster than I’ve been used to running for the past 16 months. This resulted in that weird sensation where you feel like you can go faster but your legs just won’t do it. Not to worry, it will come with further faster training.

As you may have guessed, my injury issues are really starting to ease now. I don’t want to get ahead of myself too much, given the extended period over which these problems have persisted, but I do feel it’s different this time. I’ll explain more about how I (appear to) have found a cure at a later date.
