It starts in the middle of the city, and goes out to one side, and up into the country side. Sheffield is VERY hilly, and the hill we go up is one of the biggest. I ran negative splits (should hope so, as it was down hill for the 2nd part ).
I'm now switching my training for a fast 10km in July (hoping for 38 minutes as it's got a decent couple of hills in it)
Ouch, I had ITBS in 2011, troubled me for months to a point I had to stop training and pull out of several runs, it was an absolute swine to get rid of till I found a physio with BIG heavy hands but he managed to fix it after two months of sports massage for good (hopefully) He is my go to guy now, absolute genius. Can't underestimate a good physio...
After watching the LDM yesterday, I did think maybe I should have one last go at training for a marathon, the only time I tried it was thwarted by injury ... so just don't know a) if i could commit the time to the long runs (I find training for halves time consuming enough) and b) If my knee could cope with mileage (tendonitus in the right one) plus 26 mile is a hell of a distance ain't it... You ever done one or considered it?
