Otherwise, the short term plan is to continue with a mixed training bag that will include sessions at the gym, a bit of cycling and a few jogs each week, with the aim to build up the long run each weekend. At present, even 10 km is challenging. With the time off running due to the injury, my cardiovascular fitness has markedly declined (despite the bike time) as evidenced by a much higher heart rate when jogging. I'd like to think that this is rock bottom and the only way now is up.
Recent training endeavours:
Monday - gym session - weights (legs, bench press, abs)
Tuesday - jog 6 km ~ 6min/K
Wednesday - forgot workout gear, missed gym. Home late, missed bike ride. Day off
Thursday - jog 7.5 km (a mixture of jog/walk) ~ 6min/K
Friday - gym session - weights (catch up session - shoulders, back, arms, abs)
Saturday - 10 km 4:1 jog ~ 6min/K; gym session (legs and bench press).
