Today I shall be cross training with tartinpimpernel under the tutelage of an instructor called the boss. What could go wrong? 

30/06/2013 at 13:21

30k for me.  Steady 15k @ 5:18 km, then back at 4:39 km.  Afternoon of athletics to follow.

RS and TP - I hope there will be dancing in the dark . Kaz - staying upright, dancing, able to walk home - sounds like the ideal evening .

Morning of sweaty cross training for me, calf raises and other strengthening exercises. Cautiously optimistic but am under strict instructions from physio not to run until I see him tomorrow.

My afternoon will be filled with bums in Lycra. And I might watch the Tour de France as well.

I'm alive. Antibiotics finally started working around midday yesterday - not a moment too soon.

But I'm still just absolutely, bone-achingly exhausted.

Did my first post-holiday run today and it was hard going. 

Woke up really tired and had to force myself out of the door.

The intention was to run about 20k but my legs were really heavy from the start and I was still tired. I could feel that if I pushed it too much my legs would really suffer for the rest of the week, so cut it short after 10k.

I know it's a temporary blip and I'll be firing on all cylinders soon - but the hard work starts here

6 hours of digging and planting at the allotment counts as cross training, right? 

I.  Am.  Shattered.

30/06/2013 at 20:38

Yep. It counts double aksherlly. Now go look treat your organism.

30/06/2013 at 20:39

Always liked Ann organism. Very healthy

12 lovely miles in Salzburg today.

Weedy - 3D video camera.  Still gotta figure out how I'm going to edit it as iMovie doesnt do 3D, and the Sony software that does is not very user friendly.

Off to see the physio again the morning. He's about six foot four of knowledgable loveliness. Just a pity he wants to stick pins in my legs .

Weedy - What's a Donk ?  When you live near Paris and have the occasion to pass the day in the company an elegant young lady where would you take her ?  21st September - Mud Day !

Hope everything is feeling better.

DLR - cracking run.

01/07/2013 at 09:07

Don't need a gun when you've got a Donk

That Mud Day looks mad. Reckon running's hard enough without adding mud and electricity

01/07/2013 at 09:47

Damn - I'd have got the Donk reference too

01/07/2013 at 10:24

*everyone  (before coffee)

01/07/2013 at 10:48

Weedy that's not a croc Dundee ref is it by any chance?

01/07/2013 at 13:40

Tis indeed Jimbob. Top film
