DrDave - cheers for the info, I took a whack on the Lat/side muscle but think its rib damage, its been one week so far. I'd like to be swimming and biking properly in a couple of weeks at the latest as race day is just over 4 weeks away.
Bainspj - try a waistpack rather than a bumbag. I used to use one when I did run commutes. Its a better fit so will be more stable when you run.
DrDave - if you're going all inclusive then you'll probably need to run some days to compensate ! I sneak about early doors trying not to wake anyone most weeks of the year, so that was another reason to do nothing last week.
Did 8M real slow earlier, to keep my breathing real easy. Its just the vibrations then that hurts. Tried to swim last night and had to stop as certain movements took my breath away, and I'm living in fear of sneezing, so maybe I have rib damage after all.
Bainspj - I've been chief cook and bottle washer for the past few weeks so had to pull a week of zero when away, but I would do that anyway. Endurance sports are selfish and its only one week missed (although not ideal 6 weeks out from an A race - but I dont expect to win that race !).
Dr Dave - good long run that with 10 at MP in it.
Padams - both nippers have improved their surfing, esp the eldest, but it was a bit wild at times due to the remains of Bertha. A week of beach cricket has obviously helped too, the eldest scored 47 Saturday in his adults game after a run of low scores and the younger one bagged his first adult 5 wicket haul in his game (aged 13).
90min on the turbo y'day was manageable. Did 75min today with a 2M run off it which was a bit uncomfortable, but leads me to believe its more muscle damage than rib as it was the vibrations rather than the breathing that was making it hurt. Hopefully I can get swimming soon, before I forget all about my 1 to 1 coaching.
back from a weeks RnR in Cornwall. A read back shows the usual mix of marathon training and racing, from 5k to 50k. Hope that the health scare comes to nothing SL, and good to see Padams getting back to it a bit more.
So after a self imposed week of zero (holidays are family time for me), the SPO gets her wrist cast off Monday and i have 5 weeks tomorrow until my A race (1/2IM), so 1 week of catch up and and then 3 big weeks. But I copped a surfboard (moving fast) in the back a few days ago and am struggling now, not sure if its muscle or rib damage. I reckon I'll be able to spin on the turbo, but not much else for a while. So I'll have to play it by ear as to when I can bike outside, run and swim again. Only run once in the two weeks since the Harting 10 too, good job I sold the ABo number.
