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?

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

Quick bike and brick run today, biked in shorts and short sleeves for the first time this year, felt almost naked!  

Maybe that's next.

See you at Waveney SD hope you don't get the shouty man again.

Good effort Tim

I volunteered Ali but said i didnt want to go on the entrance to the leisure centre as i dont have the adequate tollerence level for idiots.

Arleya & I did the bike mount/dismount for the Spring Waveney last year so i think we may be on that again. Are you racing or helping?

Easy day for me today


 - Swim - 30mins recovery

 - 4 mile mixed pace run along the river

28 hilly miles on bike, ave 16.8mph.  My average is up from 15mph, pleased about that.  

Lovely sunny day, arms and legs out, mouthful of flies.  Ah, spring.

Just a shade under 51.5 miles biked this afternoon.  Why did I pick a route which was uphill all the way home?  Feels good anyhoo.
