Lost most of last month due to problems with my back
Lost half of this month due to chest infection
still heading in the right direction.... bike FTP increasing steadily, up by 20W since July, with a ton of interval work helping.... and swim feels good.... run only ticking over, albeit with around 40 miles a week getting done, and knocked a further 7secs off Parkrun PB... that sub 20 is bloody close now....just 5 more seconds to find!
diet is OK... not perfect, but not dire either... weight still within a couple of pounds of 'off-season' target.
managing about 9 or 10 hours a week, but crucially, every session has a goal and purpose... no junk miles here!
happy as heck with where this is heading... setting specific, weakness driven goals and seeing measureable progress towards them is really motivating!
EDIT: spoke too soon!... lunchtime run today, half a mile in, and hamstring went ping....
At this stage, don't think its too serious, but I won't be running for at least a few days...
Was about to say good work MC, but then saw your update. Take it easy and let it recover properly!
Been getting some miles covered (slowly) myself, up to 37 miles last week. Had to cut my long run short as realised I'd overdone it for the week so walked home, and reviewing the load for the next few weeks to make sure I get to mid-Jan in one piece. Plan had been to run from Oldham to Tatton Park for the Yule Yomp 10k next weekend (20 miles) but I've decided it'd be better to do the long run the day before, and use the 10k as a recovery run.
Still need to sort out eating. Or rather, stop eating. Doing more exercise in a week than pretty much ever before and managing to put weight on. Get off the biscuits, chubs.
Morning all. can't believe we're half way through the year already, gah!! Is everyone still stuffing that sock? My back is really pissing me off so back to Plan B, get a new gym programme to sort it out. Been doing very little as a result and feel like I'm atrophying.
How are we all doing?
