I had been riding a bike like a mad woman the past 2 months trying to make sure I didn't lose too much leg strength, although the first 3-4 weeks of riding were basically just trying to get my ROM back.

Three minutes off your time is terrific! Wow!

You've been working hard then Smurf.

Did my 4th 20km run this morning in 1 hour 38:12.

I think I am ready for my Half Marathon on the 30th August.

Completed my first half marathon in 26 years on the weekend. I did 1 hour 44 minutes 8 seconds. I really suffered badly from heat exhaustion in the second 10kms.

My knee wasn't a problem at all. I am planning another HM in December.

Ran a masters 5km PR in 20.07. I came 13th/131 starters and got a silver medal for silver in the 40-49 year age group.

I have run over one thousand miles this year.

Since my post over a year ago I have continued to run and race. My highest weekly total has been 80km

I have now run 7 Half Marathons with a best time of 88:13. This was the NSW State Marathon Championship and I was part of a team 35+ year old team that won a bronze medal.

I've run under 40 minutes for ten kilometres twice: 39:17, 39:30

I won a bronze medal at the Australian Masters Athletics Championships 10000m track race.

I finished 1011th/67000 people in Sydney's City to Surf.

I've won beer mugs, socks, medals for winning my age group at local fun runs.

In  September I ran the longest run of my life a 29km ultra race in the Royal National Park on rough wlaking trails, it took fours hours.

Running has really expanded my life, and I have lived some of the most enjoyable and inspirational days of my life.

Since November 2010, I have continued to run.

My best weekly distance is 86km. I regularly go on 25km runs.

I have now run 18 half marathon, and am thinking of running a full marathon.

My best recent Half Marathon time is 88:54, where I finished 45th/561 runners in the Cadbury Half Marathon. My 5km time is down to 19:30.81.

I've had some other short injury setbacks back, achilles, shin splints, but no problems with my knees.

I am entering country, state and national master athletics championships.

Hi Quinkin,

Glad to read a positive post on KG for a change and glad you are able to run at a competitive level. I am not use to working in kilometres as we measure in miles in the UK and only got back into running in May 2011 after not be able to run for over 3 and a half years after a knee injury and surgery. Now run 3 times a week and only run 15 miles a week and will increase the distance over time. I can run a mile in 6 to 7 minutes and will be joining a local running club in the spring as I also want to take part in half marathons and a full one would be my main goal.

Good luck in your future marathons and hope your knees hold up well as it not great for out knees running as we will wear them out and is something you willing to risk if you enjoy running as much as I do which I can see from your posts you very much into running and enjoy it.

Hope you are still able to build up the miles Clarkey.

Haven't dropped by Knee Guru for a long time. Since then I have run my first full marathon in 3:25.56

5km best is now 18:41.20, I've even run 1500m (5:03.26) and 3000m (11:08.54). My best City to Surf time is 57:45, and Half Marathon (87:59)

I've run 35km X 2 times.

Hi Quinkin,

Fantastic news that you are back to full fitness, running at competitive level again and have already competed in 2 marathons.

I would love to match your time, I just have to sort out my right injured knee. After reading your success story, stand a good chance of running at a competitive level again. I have always liked to push myself to the extreme.

Maybe this is why I have now got a bad right knee from over running, this does not faze me as I intend to get back to full fitness again. As you have shown with your success story.

Good luck with your Marathons during 2014.
