Love your race report Lily, and a great time. Well done
I did a club cross country race on Saturday morning and about half way in I turned my ankle so I had to pull out and now am sporting a rather attractive bruised, swollen left ankle. It is a mild sprain- not particularly painful to walk on- so fingers crossed I will be OK for Sunday's half. I am itching to exercise and was considering a bike ride this evening, but am going to be sensible and am currently elevating and icing as I type this. Will swim tomorrow but ask my teacher if I can use floats on my legs.
A run / swim for me, nice and easy as I'm on a (kind of) taper for my HM next weekend, and I'm doing the club's 5 mile handicap in the morning. So I did 3-4 very pleasant miles around the Olympic park, followed by 50 minute swim in the pool. Managed several lengths of the 50 metre olympic sized pool front crawl, without stopping, which is something of an achievement for me Am making progress, slowly but surely. Crawl is still difficult with the technique, position and breathing, but I can feel that the practice is helping.
