Return from injury

Last week was my first week back from injury since my DNF at the Cork City marathon. I managed thirty miles. This week I began my Pfitzinger programme. Tuesday had an eight mile run with four miles at tempo pace scheduled. Fitness certainly deteriorates following a two week lay-off. My tempo pace miles were at least ten to fifteen seconds slower than one month ago!
I have the Multi-marathon half-marathon on Sunday. It's been moved to an 11am start from a previously scheduled 10am start. Considering my fitness level, recent injury and the late and potentially warm start means there will be no danger of doing a sub ninety minute race.
