Having had my nerve root block back in December 2017, 2018 started great with a good training month in January in preparation for the early season races. I managed to score PB’s at Ferriby 10, Dewsbury 10k & Barcelona half marathon, the good training continued up to the East Hull 20 at which I did 2:17.55 something that I’m incredibly proud of having ran most of the race on my own & also managed to produce some of most consistent mile splits ever. Shortly after the 20 things starting unravelling slightly with a bit of leg pain creeping in, after cutting short a planned long run I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to make London mara. Some shorter training runs followed just to keep my legs ticking over with the leg pain coming & going. Anyway I made the start line at London & pulled a 3:20 out the bag again something I’m proud of & so grateful to the club for the place.
