Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening all!
My hectic work schedule since January has in all honesty been an impediment to regular training. That said, it has been going well, and physically, training this last month especially has been tougher than I thought it would be. But who said it would be easy? Marathon training is hard! Not so much in terms of my stamina levels, but from the physical endurance! As a lifelong cricketer bowling as fast as I could over the years, I have always had a niggling knee injury of one sort of another. Knee straps and supports, mixed with the odd painkiller are getting me through, but I am conscious of not doing lasting injury to myself!
That said, each time I run, I focus on the goal of raising as much awareness as possible for Blind Veterans UK, and that drives me on. Am looking forward to having a training session with fellow marathon runner Rob Long – a member of Blind Veterans UK who lost his sight thanks to an IED in Afghanistan.
