Earlier this year I had 8 weeks off running due to illness,(I was all ready to run the Bramley 20) managed to do some bike work in the gym - but, I was back running at the end of March and have been doing 10-13 mile runs at the weekend, have since had time off for a holiday(which did involved cycling most days) and a further week off due to illness - again, but I feel I have gone backwards with a vengeance. I am finishing races at times not much better than I was doing 2 years ago I am increasing my training days to 4 or 5 depending on work etc.etc. and training as often as possible with other people to help motivate me - but, help, what else can I do to get back to where I was - or is this just a case of getting older?? I won't let age get in the way tho'.
I am feeling very de-motivated at the moment.
