8th August 2014

I am a runner who was injured with medial tibial stress syndrome (shin splints). After having trouble getting back to running for 9 months I decided it was time to start again. My training is a slow progression from couch to 100 miles. All in all I have only ran for about 4 or 5 months with success but I’ll be breaking that starting today. I will be blogging every day giving you all my training tips and my complete training schedules. I will also write monthly to pull out all the good and bad points of my training, and things I could do better in the following months. Feel free to use my blogs how you will at your own peril.

I’m not even going to go there RE diet today. My problems were that I went shopping in town with my bank card and an empty stomach on a detox. I bought nothing but rubbish and brought it home and scoffed it. Call me weak call me stupid I don’t care. I’m human and I’ll try again!

I was supposed to start a detox today but I lasted for 24 hours and then all of a sudden I binged to the max on potato chips, sweets, chocolate and savory snacks. I feel really ashamed. I then went into an insulin overload and got the shakes and felt sick for the rest of the day. Well I guess this shows I’m human.

Thoughts for the day

• You can achieve a lot more in a day than you may think. Today I have pushed myself every time my mind has said no in doing something to actually just doing it.
• Well chuffed I got to go out and run. I ran around a local park and it felt really good. I took it easy. Was a little paranoid thinking I’d get hurt again but I seemed to be ok. The times I have tried to return to running before I have managed 7-10 days so if I can keep going for a few weeks then I will feel more confident about my planned training.
