So, what happened? Shortly after that post I was struck down with hip flexor/groin issues and back on the injury bench. Out went the 'stay healthy' and 'run some fast races in the Spring plans'!
Was starting to get slightly fit again in April running a mediocre but satisfactory 16:58 and just getting back into the groove when my trusty left calf blew out on me again. Four weeks later and I've managed to run every morning this week and am considering myself back on the comeback trail again. Let's do this!
