I am – once again – building up to a regular training regime after over three months of almost complete lack of training. Only this time I have learnt from the many times I’ve had to get back into training, and I am avoiding the traps of frustration, self-recrimination and unrealistic expectations. Instead I’m taking a more-long term, conscious approach, which – I hope – will lead me to building a more sustainable training programme.
As this is an area which does not get as much attention as “how to run your first marathon” or “how to run your fastest 5k ever!”, which have millions of articles and blogs written about them, I thought I would offer my thoughts for your amusement and profit.!
