A good couple of days from Friday.
Got a new tyre and tubes and ended up buying a turbo trainer which was a bargain! Before I had unboxed the thing I ended up fitting both tubes as each of them burst whilst being pumped up!! 4 tubes in 1 week!
Back to the shop to complain and I was given replacements, luckily they blew up before I hit the road. Back and forth meant I was short on time and ended up heading to the island in a bit of a rush and left the bike till Sunday..
Out Saturday birthday drinks and I didn't last that long before being pretty drunk- Being teetotal for years (bar once this year) does not help!
Sunday home and on the turbo for 30 minutes and did a semi hard effort. The watt / power / speedo is (I hope) not correct in calibration which I will try sort but for now I can do HR workouts.
Monday - Planned bigger ride but ended up splitting the day and going on the turbo for an hour with Kyle having lunch at his but also riding by myself in the morning upto the grandparents.
Tuesday - 1st of 3 runs planned for this week. My first proper sensibly planned run and outlined this week with Kyle what needs to be done. All slow and short. Massage after for some deep work + release to keep the tendons from tightneing. He says calf is still tight and top of pereonal but otherwise shin etc is ok..
Shin felt 100% and I barely felt anything else other than stiffness which is probably not even related to the issues. So otherwise a clear run..
Was going to turbo for a bit but advised to keep the rest of the day clear so I won't be able to do anything until tomorrow night .
Plan is 20 min run Thursday and Saturday and any cycling in between..
Back to work Thursday AM 7-3:30.
Sunday - Turbo 30:02 - Distance X? - 152 / 175
Monday - 12.45m road cycle 40:29 - 161 / 180 (hour rest) then 1:00:02 turbo 151 / 175 (Distance unknown)
Tuesday - 2.47 run 20:08 - 8:08m/m (This will be pace I run at for a while) HR 136 / 158 (note I was running over a minute / mile faster at the same HR few months ago)
