do as I say, not what I do…

I did it again. Two weeks before a marathon, I ran a half marathon. And my left Achilles tendon didn’t feel right, but I didn’t quit. And now I’m hoping for recovery and to be able to go out a few times before the big M.

  • The no quitting philosophy
  • First race in new age group
  • Actually finished the 13.1 mi in a decent time , 1:30 . 3rd in my age group (M50-54)

So now chances are that I won’t run Chevron CityToSurf Marathon Perth if my left ankle isn’t in decent condition. Won’t know until race day…
