Thursday Mar 30 #

1 AM

Damaged leg stretches and strengthening. First out of pool session.
9 AM

Back, core and achilles 30:00 [1]

Work on the uninjured body parts.
11 AM

Back, core and achilles 30:00 [1]

Work on the injured body parts in the hydro pool.

Swimming 30:00 [3]

Added a mix of swimming and pool running to the regime. Its good to do some exercise that shifts the heart rate upwards, even if its just laps of the pool.

Wednesday Mar 29 #

Back, core and achilles 1:00:00 [1]

Lots of exercise in the pool. With the warmth and buoyancy, one starts to think recovery is just around the corner. Then one gets out of the pool.

Tuesday Mar 28 #

Back, core and achilles 1:20:00 [1]

Rehab. Time in the pool. The usual exercises that I can still do. More tomorrow.

Monday Mar 27 #


Two physio consultations today (one informal with Ilka). Another tomorrow.
Restricted to being in the house. Walking to supermarket beyond me. I drove the two blocks.
At least I am leading the family footy tipping competition.

Saturday Mar 25 #

10 AM

Back, core and achilles 55:00 [2]

Getting serious about this routine. Worked up a sweat this morning. If I was a masochist I would enjoy the two doses of the cylinder of pain.
1 PM

Real Orienteering race 16:00 [2] *** 1.4 km (11:26 / km) +20m 10:40 / km
spiked:3/3c shoes: Salamon Blue

Really did it today. Started at a walk/jog. Then after 700 metres I managed one of those classic mega trips on a stick. One end caught in the shoe laces and the other pivoted on the ground. I went up and over. It was my good leg and in the instinctive effort to break the fall with my bad leg, I have transformed a muscle micro tear into something far more significant. Doing my reading, it will take six to eight weeks if I just rest. NZ events in three weeks. But "vigorous treatment together with muscle strengthening and stretching for as many as six half hour sessions a day, beginning 48 hours after injury, could return most athletes to competitive sport within 10-14 days". Well, guess what I will be doing. I don't assume I fit the definition of an athlete, so am hoping that three weeks will solve the problem.
