Thanks JD, was really nervous having just come back from injury and not properly tested things at full pelt but after a slow start really got into it.

Iíve been off the running for a couple of weeks injured, 100k ultra coming up 10 July, been back on it this week not entirely pain free but nearly there, 3 big weekends coming up, 35k this Saturday, 45k next Saturday and then a 55k the Saturday after before a week of recovery and the big 100.

Had a ridiculous fall three months running downhill on grass. One foot slipped, tried to catch myself with the other which also slipped and thenmy legs got tangled up. Screwed up meniscus in my left knee (left leg ended up twisting underneath the right). Didn't hurt too much at the time (able to run home with some hobbling on the steeper downhill sections).

Three months later and I can only manage half an hour or so on the flat on the road (more than twice what I could handle a couple of months ago). Could run much further uphill, offroad although there are no hills that big nearby (can gain 250m in altitude in 25 mins from home with the second half on the moor, but then it's mostly walking downhill to get back). Flat and easy downhill on the grass is fine now (but wasn't a couple of months ago). Have been doing lots of uphill intervals on the golf course in the gloaming (hard on the uphills, walk the downhills) which is actually a pretty good workout.

Think it's slowly getting better, but running hard downhill on the road or long runs (10+ miles) without any breaks to avoid downhill sections seems a long way off. Lots of sessions on the exercise bike and the odd proper ride seems the best I can do to stay as fit as possible.

Ouch, being injured sucks big time.

Managed the 35k on Saturday, stopped every 10k to simulate an aid station, took on a gel or half a bar and drinks, also a good stretch of the back and hip flexors in particular. Really hard to slow things down to a 6.5 - 7 minute km which is what we will be aiming at over the non stop 100km race in a few weeks, as someone who runs the half in c1:35 and full marathon in c3:30 it was purgatory.

Bloody hell, 6.30 to 7 min/km must feel like fast walking!! Good luck with it Jon, whats the course like?

100km non stop, c1500 metres of climbing, aid station every c10km.

I'm overdoing the hills to be honest, training plan says c100m per 10km, I do 300m in 10km because of where I live, cant avoid the hills.
