Sounds like the ninja roll saved you worse damage TR.
Wardi - that gave me a much need laugh, cheers.
2nd test jog of 3m went well too. Same as I posted yesterday for the 2m, a little stiffness but no pain. All put in context of course by a crap run of family stuff. It really has been a sh!tty couple of months.
Was the pace differential between the 2 x 2m tempos deliberate postie?
Nice trackwork Toro.
And very nice roadwork Padams!
A 2m test jog went ok. A little stiffness in the knee, but no pain, so fingers crossed, but it looks like I've been a very lucky boy. I'll continue with my rehab and also make sure I wear my headtorch from now on too, especially since the local council have taken to turning off half of the street lights to save money.
As per my comment to Wardi, Al_P, I'm not convinced it necessarily does much, but it saves me having to shell out for physio to find out, especially as I can self massage things like this myself (and I have 'The Stick' for bigger muscles if required). But, as LD seems to be the original grumpy old man and is annoyed by most physio related things, I shall most likely continue to mention every time I use it for something Glad to hear you're coming along.
Also-ran, so have I read it right that you've opted to be coached by the Hansons rather than following the plan from the book?
On the mileage front it's hard to know. I'm sure peaking in the mid-60s would do for some, and equally others would need more. Everybody has got a sweet spot. Mine is certainly less than I would have thought. I ran my pb whilst averaging 91 over the last 9 weeks, whereas my previous pb before that averaged 117 over the same period.
I think it's important to find a mileage range that you feel you can repeat week on week with a sufficient amount of quality, but it has to be an amount that is not too easy at the same time.
