Alright lads! I have been trainin hard for prmc since june, i did injure myself a few weeks back and was unable to run so i kept my cardio up with rowing, cycling and swimming and continued with my upper body exercises, however, i have been back running for 2 weeks now and i feel my times are not improving. There getting worse if anything plus my legs are nearly always feeling tired at the start of my sessions! Do you think i might just be burnt out and over trained and should Maby take it easy! Cheers

Alright mate, Good to see your on the mend again! :D When you going back to Palace Barracks to get things sorted??

Yeah you could be over training but than again mate if you've only been back to running a couple off weeks it might take time to build your legs back upto what they used to be! Rowing, cycling & swimming are great low impact exrecises & for cardio as you know, but you're probably finding that once your out on the roads its take lots more out of your legs and thats probably why your on a bit of plateau and nothing seems to be happening time wise for you. I think all you can do mate, is it do a run everyday starting off at your usual pace and then just progress the pace each run.

How many rest days have you had recently??

Alright mate, your Maby right about the running because it was roughly 4 weeks without a good proper run! Im headin up on thurs for my medical and then hopefully ill have a date within the next 3 or 4 weeks, thats what i have been told! Everything goin good with you! How did you find commando last night! Made me real nervous and excited at the same time as i thought i could be doin that real soon if all goes well!
