Today was a good test for my back ready for the Para’10 at Catterick garrison next Sunday. I ran with 25 lb. (2/3 of desired weight) over a hilly 9.5 miles. Pleased to say it was completed with an average time per mile of 12m30s so my fitness is certainly starting to return. The back muscles are a little tight and the piriformis muscle in my gluteus is certainly twinging. That said, very pleased that the back held, all looking well the the full load bearing exercise next weekend.
