Sorry to hear you're injured Andy. Like Will said, it's best to know for sure what's wrong. I've gone down to Sportlink before with an injury and they diagnosed it accurately.

Hope it sorts itself out soon!

SD - yep - go and see a physio.

I'll give it a couple of days before spending money on physio opinions.

Ice,heat,compression, elevation first  

Sportlink is a good shout Budgie.

Ouch SD! Hope you're not out of action for too long.

Had a great swim session with the tri club tonight, really enjoyed it.  We did a timed 400m, first time I've done that, 7:43.  I didn't get a chance to speak to our coach, so does that sound good, bad or indifferent?!

Nursey, sounds good to me.  I haven't done a timed 400 in a while, but I'd be chuffed with that.

Nursey, I'm not a speedy swimmer by any means but the best I've ever done in a 400m is about what you did.  Congrats!

Well done nursey, good time. I think the 400 i did was just over 10 minutes 

Set up a fantasy  cycling league for the Giro d Italia that commences at the weekend

I've had to ease off over the past few weeks due to knee pain.  My left knee is playing up again and having had a Microfracture procedure on it back in '98 I'm a little worried more of the same is required.

I'm in-between Xrays, surgeon visits and MRI scans as I type.  I'll know more by the end of Friday.  Until then, I'll keep taking things nice and easy.  

Good job on the swimming NR!

Nursey thats not a bad time at all .... keeping that pace consistent is the next step

I have done lifting, shifting, shopping and chores today which is fine as that is what I had planned... 3 hr bike probably tomorrow with a cheeky little run off the back

Glad someones training. Just going to take another week off myself to hopefully fully mend.

The way i see it Is.

I followed Fink bang on for 12 weeks, deviated to do the marathon so that meant i did more than the planned running. I also threw in the swimathon & another long swim session that wasnt part of the original plan. So, technically i'm probably not that far off what i should have done.

just need to convince myself thats not a load of old rolox now

SD - can you bike OK?

01/05/2013 at 08:16

Andy, another week off now will be more than worth it in the long run, I reckon.  And you've done really well up to now, hitting training plan week after week.  I have yet to complete a whole week's full training.  

But you've done a marathon and a swimathon, your swim distance and time is great, everything's good.  Your body will thank you.  And you might have a new book to read soon

Cheers. Feeling ok about it now. Ive cycled to work rather than walk this last couple of days as it hurts less.

feels a lot better today, redness has gone & swelling is reducing. Rest & ice etc seems to have done the trick. Its definitely tendoites off the back of the marathon then flapping my feet swimming non stop  for 2hrs 20 mins.

yep, looking forward to that one Tim 

anyone doing Waveney Triathlon this weekend? I'm marshalling so will see you there if you are
