Hello fellow Bloggers... should we be called Blogites or something Bloggers just sounds a but dull ;o)
OK so progress is being made with the strain although I fear not quick enough (pause, inhale and exhale)..... Managed a real easy 25mins spinning on the turbo Weds night which wasn't too bad a bit niggly but ok. Went on to club swim which was really quiet but muchos fun!! After a warm-up we did some 200m reps; 50cruise, 100all-out, 50 cruise.. then some technique stuff followed by some more 200m reps; 50sprint, 100cruise, 50sprint... all really good fun!
Took it kind of easy Thursday. Quite a bit of stretching for the leggy (thanks for the advice by the way), and ended the day with 25mins sports massage just on my leg - I'm sure that has actually helped!... Ended with the obligatory glass of red wine and cheese... as you may recall I found this combination really helped with mending my broken hand earlier in the year so I though I'd try it again.. ah-hum..cough.. yes ok... poor excuse ;o)
More RICE today and this evening I gave jogging a go..... did 20mins on the x-trainer (bleah I hate that machine), 20mins easy bike (I now hate gym bikes compared to my trusty stead!), and then 20mins on the treadmill, not running I hasten to add.... 2mins walk, 2mins v. gentle jog. Weirdly enough I felt the calf more at the beginning then towards the end... So have been v.good and done ouddles of stretching and now going to ice it a bit. So far so good. I think I need to stay off it for the weekend so am going to cycle a bit tomorrow and some more gym work Sunday I think. My jury is still out about the half-Mary.... but never fear as I've spotted an alternative which is mid-Oct so may swap to that one if I'm not confident of getting the training in for the Sept one :o)
All good... and guess what else... IT'S THE WEEKEND!!! WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO! :O)
...Now where has that bottle of wine gone...
