Was going to go for a long run today - but after I pulled on the Salomons, instantly I had pain in my left ankle even just walking - must be right at the heigh of the shoe - so quickly ditched that idea and went for one of the daily small walks I have been doing with Emma.

Pulled the Brooks out of retirement because couldnt stand walking in the Salomons... wow, they where so light and my toes had so much room so much more comfortable. Was tempted to do long run in them but clear my ankle still has some healing to do so left it - will have to stop running for a bit and do lots of wobble board/ no impact stuff - should give me shins a good break....

Just need to make sure I can still run the 12.5 for ana though.

Guess focus will be riding and paddling now!

7 AM

Mountain Biking (Camel Farm) 1:35:47 [2] 14.46 km (9.1 kph) +486m
ahr:128 max:159 shoes: Giro Privateer

One of the partners at work is doing the MTB leg of anaconda and needed to learn how to mtb - so I took him out for a whirl - he did exceptionally well for a first timer.

If he picks it up quick I might have to be on my game! (should be ok though)
8 AM

Mountain Biking (Camel Farm) 1:22:20 [4] 20.13 km (14.7 kph) +430m
ahr:153 max:174 shoes: Giro Privateer

So after ditching the partner back at camel farm I went out for a big hitout... I love how I did gungin twice on this loop and only once with the partner yet the other trace claims more climb... sadface!

Anyway legs actually felt really good considering I had been out for a while - lower back gave some problematic signs later in the piece but held together - Generally I felt very comfortable out there and had it been a bit drier would have gone faster... overall expecting a PR smash fest, but too hard to tell until I hit the strava button!!!

Also now have a set of track which I am calling the BC loop which is 20km of hard work :) it will be my training course.

(rest day)

Was going to train today but decided 1 additional day would be worth while - pain is now restricted to toes/feet - weird nerve shooting pains in toes every now and again... good times.

Works back on the fun factory campaign of stupid deadline (another reason for not training todya) late night last night and long day today.

(rest day)

Rest day number 2 -

Apparently I am good to train again tomorrow... I might be debating that!

Legs still look like a self harm clinic. Ankle is a dull ache, Legs generally still feel spanked.

Feeling pretty tired mainly because didnt get to sleep until late last night.

Hip flexors certainly still feeling it still.

Could be a day or two away yet, but may do stuff all the same - see how I go.

(rest day)

rest day because the schedule said I needed to - because yeah I am totally fine and could totally train today... (still in pjs at home but for the opps I am interviewing someone in the office not on the phone which saw me ready and in the city in under 15mins... amazing how fast you can move when you need to regardless of the level of pain.

Also some form of epic writeup will happen later tonight. sorry for those who got excited at a * to see the disappointment of a rest day post :P (no one I suspect)

Real pain update - actually pretty good mainly feet and toes and hip flexors. More in main post.
