Did a few things today that might end up looking a bit silly.
Jogged through a few drills at soccer training with the kiddies with barely any discomfort at all...
so then a few mates were playing basketball at school, and I played a casual 15 minutes or so before i went home. Maybe 1 little twinge when I jumped for a rebound, but felt good. Thinking if I pull up OK that I might try a slow 5km jog tomorrow.
10 PM

rehabilitation 5:00 [0]

The usual. At home with no weights. Have been a bit slack the last few days...

Tried to fix a leak in the roof before the rain came. Think I did enough, then put my foot through two tiles as I was getting down. Bugger. The plumber that dug a big hole out the front of our house a while ago buried all our spare tiles when they filled the hole in.
Tried to temp. fix it with a silicone sealant and a couple of blocks of wood.
Wasn't confident, so had an emergency afternoon dash to Balcatta Recycling Centre.

Perfectly matching tiles $1 each.


Problem solved.

Notexercise 30:00 [0]
shoes: barefoot

Tried out the Wii Flit Plus for a while. Confirmed what I already knew in several ways.
1. My static balance is crap
2. I am not overweight
3. Wii Fit is not real exercise (although I suppose if you were determined to try you could probably make up a core type routine that isn't a complete waste of time. But what I did was pretty pointless from an exercise POV)

At least it adds another colour to my log ;)

No weights (at home). Guess no weight and once a day is still better than nothing.

cycle 1:09:00 [3] 34.6 km (2:00 / km)
shoes: Avanti Blade

...and to continue this week's theme of adding strange colours to my log - a bike ride. From work to Yanchep and return. Tried to take it easy on the way out, but felt surprisingly strong. Not so surprsingly, when I turned around, the headwind was significantly stronger than I had realised :( Felt pretty ahrd work for the last 20 minutes. Both knees a little uncomfortable under the patella. Will see if theings flare up again. Hopefully not till my achilles settle at least.

rehabilitation 5:00 [1]

Didn't get around to it yesterday, but nack with the weighted backpack this morning.
3 PM


Had a little run around the soccer field with a bunch of year 8's today. Still need a little warming up, but only very minor discomfort now. Will have to check bwhat all the articles say about when to resume running - feels like it's much closer now.
4 PM

rehabilitation 5:00 [1]

Same again. A little tight from the arvo run-around but fine on the second and third sets.
5 PM

core stability 30:00 [3]

Did a bit of a core workout on one of the new fitballs we have in our school gym. Ball was very flat, and I took all the easy options for the exercises and it was still horrifically hard. I think I have no core strength at all. Strange, given the massive training load of core strength exercises I've done in the last 4 years.
I'm gonna be sore tomorrow. And the next day. And probably the day after that too...

rehabilitation 5:00 [1]

Finally added 5kg in a backpack to the rehab. Made it a fair bit harder, but not too uncomfortable.
4 PM

rehabilitation 5:00 [1]

As per the morning.

Windtrainer 33:00 intensity: (3:00 @1) + (20:00 @2) + (10:00 @4)
shoes: Avanti Blade

What the? What is that strange colour doing in my log?
On the bike for the second time this year, and it nearly killed me. 10 minute WU, 5 x 2 on, 2 off, short cooldown. Barely survived the first 2 minute effort. I know I'm 3 weeks detrained, but it's amazing how specific fitness really is. Wouldn't feel nearly that bad (I hope) running.
Could feel slight pulling/discomfort in my right knee. How did I not figure out the link between riding and patella tendon issues for 3 years. Thick. Will definitely get a bike fit done sooner rather than later, as I suspect a bit more riding may be on the cards for the next few months.
