OH just jumped off the bench, injury is 95% ok and I have been swimming everyday except Sunday's also I started aqua jogging for 30-40 minutes this is the second week of doing that after a swim and lots of walking. I had a session in the Oxygen therapy chamber where the pressure is increased and you breath pure oxygen for one hour. That has helped so much so that I ran for the first time yesterday. 4.5 miles on the trails my HR was a little high (Teknik ) but after the first mile I felt ok. Plan is to run every day increasing the distance up to 8-10 miles then start to do a few speed sessions at the same time still swim and aqua jog. I don't think it will take more than 3 weeks to be back into it
Loads of reading back nice to see some others back and some great racing and training going on.
Loads of reading back not many races some great training and park runs. As for myself still not running calf still sore to walk on and can't even bike due to it....... Pulling my hair out or what's left of it lol. Still hitting the pool for 70x25m front crawl most days. Won't be on the thread much until I'm fixed. SM6 regarding your next marathon go through half way in 1:35 to 1:37 and race the second half.
Fiona great cycling and running (Also watching the tour and loving it)
NN some great long runs getting banked and in the heat.
Ollie nice longer runs. LOL at the cross word with the bike
Dr Dan nice running during the week good luck with the 10k.
SM6 some nice tasty reps at pace.
HM4 any training?
Well stopped taking the Tramadol yesterday (hate taking them and the feeling that comes with them) Back is about 90% Calf felt good so tried a short run yesterday morning but had to stop after only a few hundred yards with my calf playing up again. So today I managed a swim of 50x25m and a short ride of 10 miles on the turbo. Think the calf is going to take a few weeks to heal as its sore to walk on again. But good thing is I can swim and ride the bike.
Lots and lots of reading back, went AWOL since the weekend. Pulled out of the 10K race on Saturday just before the half way point dude to the right calf. Thought I would take a couple of days rest and swim and bike but that didn't go to plan when I put my back out again on Sunday and have been on Tramadol for the pain ever since. These pain killers make me feel like i'm floating around the ceiling and also make me feel sick but it's the only thing that hits the pain....... Buddy is busting to get out for a run and all I can offer him at the moment is a very slow old man stooped hobble.
