I wanted to do a 40 mile bike today, as the roads had dried out. Obviously I'm sneaking a bit of paid time here, but hey ho I do lots of work type stuff in the evenings. By the time I got out the heart really wasn't up for an exploratory ride through uncharted hilly territory (aka Forest of Dean). Another day. Instead I chose the regular 20 loop, with time in hand to go swimming.

I'd barely gone 4 miles when I got knocked off by a van who was going for a gap that wasn't there. I was there. It's OK, it was low speed and sort of side to side. The bike didn't make contact and is fine, I've just got a minor graze. It looked impressive to the other drivers though. Anyway, I did the 20 mile bike, and went to the pool as well for 45 minutes in the water.
Note, this is not 45 minutes swimming, not even half that. Although still officially crap I feel that there may be minor improvements identifiable.

Being careful with the knees: no running today.
I understand that Gobi wants off, as he appears everywhere on the t'interweb. This halls up they've made to the forum is annoying.

Apparently you can't say crap with an @ now.

WTF has gone on in here..... not good....

Rest day today - yesterday was a 3m tempo run with 1k either side as strapped for time.

Tomorrow am working in the west so taking in Killerton Parkrun first.

Take care

Blisters:  I take it the van was white! Glad you are OK! Shame about the vocabulary restriction, though.

LMH: next appointment is 14th May...we were all expecting a big improvement by then. Time yet!

Paddy: nice cross training! In one way I am beyond the frustration...until I start to walk quickly, and simply want to break out into a run, but know that I can't. Just try to keep sane by telling myself that much worse things happen to people. Improving? May be some while yet. Now where's Gobi?

RFJ: from what I hear of Killerton it could be rather muddy. Enjoy!

Question. Do I stay up for half an hour just to annoy the early bird thread starters?

No

I don't think that the day starts until after you've slept and you've got up to start properly. Nighty night.
