Dustin- Alex is going ok, he is still exercise shy until he gets the stress echo. There is just no point in risking anything. He was quite scared by whole thing and for him, that's very out of character. he said he felt like his heart wasn't going to beat again... horrid to think about! But he is otherwise going ok!
I have the weekend off so planning to hopefully go for a 20km run tomorrow. or just run for 2 hours and see what the distance is at the end!
Good tip re bounding LMH. The run tonight was easier on the hips and knees.
What: 1hr 10 on the turbo with 8 min speed intervals
Why: Getting stuff done and too dark to run!
Last hard: Soooo cold!
Last rest: 29/06
Wabo- My boyfriend had some palpitations at work. Spent some time in A/E being monitored. He was a rower during uni (he went to Oxford and apparently it's a big thing). Anyway, he was told he had very high blood pressure and was advised to ease off then. He has never had palpitations before but these were enough to interrupt his boss at work for help. All a bit scary.
Emz- New car! Whoop!!
Ollie- Nice 10km time!!
I'm going to pace a friend for her 10km tomorrow. hoping for under 1 hour 10. She is getting much better! Pacing someone is quite tough.. running slower is hard for sure. Especially on my hips!
Could only dream of such things! However that's what you get when you have all day, every day to train. Plus endless money and resources!
Alex is going for a stress ECG and echo. They will make him run up to lactate threshold and see what his heart does. He has been a bit nervous to exercise since the event (fair enough!), but hasn't had any further episodes thank goodness.
Why: Feel a bit less enthused, good indication for a night of stretching
Last hard: still cold!
Last rest: today!!
Sometimes it's harder to take a break than it is to continue training. But trying to listen to my body and knowing that one rest day won't do any hard to fitness and make the rest of the week better quality!
Planning on having good food (yep- cooking chicken and salad goodness tonight) and an early night.
LMH- checkout Mirinda Carfrae's latest ironman result. I don't think I will ever be that quick! She is amazing!!
PBed on my 400m Time trial swim tonight.... 7 mins 31 secs!! PB by like 20 seconds!! I had to pasa someone to so I reckon I could go quicker! Lungs felt fine tonight, some cramps in the feet towards the end though!
