that's what I mean about base training - it's so important to get this right over the winter....

Is there a prize for the person who gets injured first? I'm hobbling into week 3 with a recurrent Achilles injury that's doing my nut in. But I shall not implode just yet.

Current training is normal for swim and bike. Runs are all replaced by aqua running (which is also training in mental stamina as it's the most boring activity on earth) at the same target zone, combined with lots of stretches/physio/foam roller type stuff. 

Anyone else having having a wonky moment?

LOL.................. post Christmas resolution - shed 10% of body weight!  Anyone know any surgeons on the forum

I have thrown away all the cakes and snacks I can find from the Christmas excesses and Bobo has very cleverly hidden stuff away so that she and Jnr don't suffer the same 'sack cloth and ashes' approach to this as me!!  12.5 miles done this morning nice and easy....  that's 1 of the Christmas pies metabolised at least!!  Anyway, its all covered in my blog if anyone is really bored.

Physio this afternoon and she wants to see me on my bike...  not sure why, I haven't been on my bike for months! 

Les Boules - nope, doesn't count if it's pre-existing.   That what private medical would say anyway!!  Find yourself a step and do lots of heel raises, one leg at a time.  Like they are showing here

But what if I'm having a fat moment too?  Like, having to weight bear extra Xmas poundage thus putting extra stress on said Achilles. Sounds good to me. 

Thanks for the tips PSC, I'm on it

and be carefull swimming that you don't push off with the bad foot as that will annoy the achillies

Ah! Now that is helpful indeed, cheers Seren. It was rather niggly in the pool today, so good advice. I think I may just use the excuse to faff about at the end of the lane before meandering gently forward for the next lap. 

Serious calf/soleus tightness though...Going to add heel raises to my programme and have been foam rolling like mad.

Scuse me buttin in ... heel drop for an achiiles and not heel raises, you will overload it 

Stand on a stair and drop the 'bad' heel down, bring it up again by taking the weight with the other foot 

28/12/2012 at 21:03
That makes sense. Raise with the buggered heel is pretty painful on its own so I stopped. Thanks all. Going to Physio on Saturday.
28/12/2012 at 21:04
Much easier raising by taking weight with other foot too...fingers crossed this will get sorted!

It was gorgeous out there...  and I saw 3 other runners enjoying it too, on a route that I normally don't see anyone on.  12 miles done and dusted with a grin on my face all the way.......

Mornin' to you too PSC. Although I think it's no longer morning.

I am choked with cold again .  I'm so bloody annoyed, as I ran on Wednesday, felt great and really enjoyed it.  Been downhill since...........
Also, since it's Hogmanay tomorrow and my birthday on the 5th, I am expecting precisely nothing of myself until the 7th.  Pleeeeenty of time to get Outlaw fit

Oh yeah... it was past the top of the clock. 

Colds should be banned... Vit C is prescribed.  Oh hang on, you're the Nurse!!

Vit C, you say?

I was thinking more along the lines of Bowmore

Mulled wine always good... Vapors clear the sinuses!
