You can read into figures anything you want, did I do enough, have I bludged or just ran and ran, up and down, round and round.
First, great day at the oval. Ground conditions are excellent, ran bare foot and changed direction after each 10 laps to prevent repetition injury. Best running on the oval this summer, slowly improving. Had a chat to Softshoeshuffle near end of session, has a hamstring injury, very annoying as he was looking to SFT in March.
Biggest December and biggest year of running ever, trying to set up an important year as I have outlined previously. Get the base, work on speed and hills, cross training and rest and recovery, no injuries and it should all come together starting with SFT.
Year 2008 will probably be the last with such a big program, getting too old to keep going at this pace. After this, I will be very selective and try a few new runs that don't involve too much hard effort. But that won't be 10 km fun runs on the road.
Happy New Year everyone, may your running year be good and injury free, any the hills not too steep.
