Day 3 done, though am noticing the stiffnes a little. I don't 'do' stretching, might need to start I guess....

if you want to make this challenge a little longer (i.e.number of consecutive days), then Likeys have set up this 365 day challenge - 2 miles or 20mins minimum every day for a year.  details here - and on the FB page -

Littlefatwelshman who runs Likeys styarted it for himself to get some fitness back but it seems to have blossomed a bit.  

and we're likley to start it when we get back from hols to try to get some discipline back into our training which has been hit and miss this year

Good work Gladys

It might be the first (& only) time you hear me say this but good idea Gladys!
I'm going to adapt slightly having only found this thread this morning (& having not done anything over the weekend).
30 runs (of 5k minimum) in 30 days of Sept for me,  this will ensure that importantly if I need a day off I'll get one and a few double run day sessions will do me good.  No limits on HR though as some intervals will be part of this.  Will commence at lunchtime today.

I've done 5k a day for the first 3 days of september so might continue

FB - I was thinking about the Likey thing - I might just sign up

my signature to the 365 thing will depend on how my PF whinjury feels after this weekend's tri and what it's like when we get back from France.

My opinion (wanted or not) after a PF injury this could probably be the worst thing you could anticipate doing FB  

03/09/2012 at 17:36

or alternatively if I manage the PF correctly (am trying some taping techniques) then it maybe a good way of overcoming the issue.  shit or bust approach!!

ahem - wasnt I told that i must take a rest day EVERY week if i needed it or not, not even a few laps of the pool - surely running even 1 mile puts more stress your body than swimming 400m once a week

i think FB was the main advocate of the rest day

30 of 30 in 30 challenge.

Day 2 - ok, just an easy 2 hr bike so the 30 min run was ok.
Day 3 - bike commute i, 30 min run home from brentford to shepherds bush, they loved me on the tube;-)
The functional training session at lunch was possibly a mistake - ill feel it tomorrow even though i think i went easy)

Run home was a bit tougher than friday.... But the knee is getting over the shock

One of these things might be *just* what a fat old cripple needs...

04/09/2012 at 06:43

Agreed Jj, but I don't think Meldy is doing it?!
