The injury treatment caused some down time in my training program. I was only trained like less than 40% planned mileages in for the past 2 months. With some help of the acupuncture, I am back in action. There are still some mild issue on the right ankle with PF, I am going to continue the acupuncture treatment for another few more week and hopefully it will be cured.
I started in midway of the new training plan, after a week of slow restart, I will straight jump into the week 5 of typical Hansons Marathon Method program (with 5x 1000km speed intervals). I completed that speed intervals this morning, and I still had the great feeling about the training pace in this plan. After all, I spent about 8 months working in this training regime last year before SCKLM 2014. I think as long as I stay injury free, and the cold weather in Seoul will help me to score another PB (being closer to 400 or even below it). Other key adjustment was increase the length of all Strength Intervals and tempo runs which scheduled after the SIM, plus some back to back 20-25km for most of the long run towards the 68km race.
That’s for now, happy running.
