Little did I know it, but after entering the whw race I have struggled with injury, not the best of starts.
I ran round Haddo estate last saturday and felt something wrong with my right leg after only three miles.
I now think the problem is coming from my hamstring which is not getting any better.
Today I put Hal Higdons 24 week Ultra program into my diary for the race. I have three weeks to shake off
this niggle and get onto the training programme or its all over early January.
I seem to struggle with injury before every ultra I do so this is no exception.
On the plus side - i have bought a pair of Hoka Mafate One One off road shoes so I can't wait to try them out.
