I must reinforce Tony's comments on your Achilles. If inflammation is still present be very careful about running, a good way to tell is the pinch test. Just gently pinch your Achilles and if it is painful do not run.
Well done on your time.
I find that now 70 is very close, a matter of weeks, I get periods where I seem to tire easily. Yesterday I ran 10k in the heat and really struggled. Legs felt fine but just no omph. I ran with two younger friends who seem unaffected. The pace would normally be well within my capabilities.
I don't drain my tank, I just add a fuel stabilizer as it is what is recommended by the Triumph dealer. I suspect my problem is associated with a vacuum hose that runs from the inlet manifold to the ecu. One of the connectors was cracked and I changed it but that didn't fix it. I think the complete connection needs to be changed.
Fixed the leak in the pool filter, chopped up the tree and my bike is in the shop. I am now sitting on my porch, feet up, sipping on my drink while watching my computer programming course on my tablet totally chilled. Well that is until something else breaks.
I managed to fix my tractor and mowed the lawns yesterday. I thought I had fixed my motorbike but alas it broke down on the way to the gym today resulting in me calling my tame mechanic to come and get me. Sitting on the side of the motorway can be a bit scarey.
So as I am now not running today I have a choice, fix the pool filter leak or cut up the fallen tree into fire wood or even both. It is 32c and humid and both of my fun activities are outside.
My activities don't seem to stack up well against yours, I must be doing something wrong.
It is only 25c here today so I ran along the river and did a gentle 5k followed by some strides and then by lots of stretching in the gym.
It seems to be the time for things to go wrong. I am trying to fix my motorcycle as it has started to cut out at low revs. My pool filter has sprung a leak so I have now got the parts to fix it. In a storm a few days ago one of my trees decided to lie down so I have to get my chainsaw working to clean up the mess but at least it is some more firewood.
I decided to mow my lawn and jump on my trusty John Deere to have it decide to die at the most remote part of my lot. It turned out to be the throttle control cable had become disconnected. To fix it I had to spend the afternoon stripping half the thing apart just to get at it.
I don't need to go to the gym tomorrow as I have enough exercise here to keep my old body happy.
I do not envy all that driving but I do have to do a 600 mile trip in a moving van, taking youngest to her university flat, at the end of the month.
I took a bike ride yesterday, only 30k as it was my rest day. We have a bike trail near our house so no traffic and shelter from the sun. We stopped for crepes so it was a net calorie positive workout.
Ran 8k in the heat on Saturday but the hr stayed down so it felt good. I ran with a couple of friends and we are so busy talking we did notice the heat.
