Plantar fasciitis, physio says no chance (normally he's quite positive about just getting on with it but not this time). Graeme at 113 is kindly transferring me to the half-iron Classic in August so at least I have something to aim for.
The distance will still be there next year. Hopefully I will too!
Back in the pool tonight, missed Monday's session with a twingey hamstring. Plodded through 1600m in 45 mins, happy enough with that. Didn't feel battered when i got out which presumably means I'm getting fitter or more efficient, either will do!
Little bit down on the schedule (adapted from Fink JF) but sticking with it. Don't feel faster or stronger or anything but have noticed being less tired after certain bike routes than I used to be. Swimming ticking along, style doesn't feel any better but some of the drills at weekly training have to be helping gradually. Did a mile of crawl at relaxed sub-2hr pace last week and only stopped cos they were closing the pool, couldn't have done that a few months ago.
Running probably weakest link at the moment (even though it's the only thing I've got any background in), did 55 odd mins today by which time knee was bit achey. Not enough to injure, just enough to stop for today. Spent the weekend sat on my rse at a training course so maybe just a bit stiff, bit of stretching and foam rolling is in order.
