There is no doubt that the older one is the longer it takes to recover from athletics induced injuries. Thankfully my hip flexor strain appears to have finally resolved itself and I was able to take to the track yesterday and indulge in what could not really be called speed work, but was at least better than the slow shambling jog of the past four weeks. A modest 6 x 300m with two minute walking recovery between was the menu for the day, with each effort in 50s. Not as sharp as I would like, but acceptable after the forced layoff. Hopefully I now remain injury free and manage to get to the starting line, (and the finishing line!) of a few Masters races before the season ends.
