Not running much yet

My health and my knee have been up and down since two weeks before the marathon. I'm only managing irregular 20-minute runs, but I did do an ekiden last weekend. Five km in 19.35. Terrible time, but it felt good to compete again.

Running again

Well, some six weeks after injuring myself in the Tokyo Marathon it seems my right knee is willing to let me run again. I've done two runs in three days and haven't had to walk. It's still too early to know if I'm OK again, but it seems I'll be able to get back to good mileage again soon. Need to get fit for September - I think I can just make it.

So, the LIVESTRONG anti-cancer message is now no longer received by the UK’s best-selling cycling publication. Who wins?
