Mr P I get what you're saying, especially about the footfall.
Totally excellent report Super, and I think you can enjoy the incoming week with that range of activities. I do so feel for you with the injury, but hopefully it won't recur now you know how it was caused.
I have terrible trouble persuading my left side glutes to get with the show, and have never found an exercise that really works because no matter what the glutes on the right kick in instead, even lying on my side in typical pilates style moves.
I did find something that works when trying to activate quads after a neural issue last year. You sit in a chair with feet on the floor and push both into the ground and as if you were trying to push feet away from body simultaneously.
After a disappointing PR yesterday [2 mins down on *usual* @ 27:02], I was nonetheless able to remind myself that I was 7 mins down 2 weeks ago, so this is progress.
Today I went for a very slow exploration of the Olympic Park which I know know in every detail thanks to time off work. Theer was a duathlon going on at the velodrome outside bit, so I went in and asked if you were allowed to run on the road track at other times.
Well no because it would be too dangerous. So why don't you open it to runners only once a week? That's a great idea we will look at that she said. Would be fab as those lovely little rolling hills are just what's required I feel.
Anyway I managed 15.4 miles, so that makes a colossal leap to 42.5 for the week, double last week's tally and lucky to get away with it even if 2 x session were on the Alter G.
I will need to discover proportionality at some stage.
It was a great week though.
