10x2mins. In Illium. Something not right in the knee joint. Sharp small pain that leads to bruising on the medial side after workouts. Really annoying. Hips really holding back leg turnover in Threshold sessions.

(rest day)

Planned to Skate. Knee is the worst it's been. Did house stuff. Pity. Cracker of a day.
NB. Day was made even better by Fulham losing. Always liked Bamford. Even when he was at Boro.
County announced 50 and up get the vaccine today. I got an emergency announcement last Monday that if you went to an Indian casino somewhere near Durango everyone could get it.

Running 46:24 [3] 8.86 km (5:14 / km) +44m 5:07 / km
ahr:152 max:170

15mins Hard. HR all over the place. Knee is suffering now.
NB. I woke up this morning wanting to draw a line under the last six months medical woes. I then got an early call from the surgeon's business manager. After a curt, frank conversation I called to cancel Monday's follow up appointment. (I didn't see the point in traveling four hours just to pay the man to abuse him)......Then at teatime I get another call from the business manager. Having talked it over with the surgeon, would I U-turn and come in Monday. The surgeon wants to make things right and drop the charge. Crazy stuff. Why did I have to be an arsehole to get this result? On another note....I filed taxes today. Today was a good day.

Running 1:20:02 [3] 13.71 km (5:50 / km) +103m 5:38 / km
ahr:153 max:174

Easy, felt great considering today was pants. Lots of things went poorly today including how the knee brace went. I see the surgeon on Monday. Needless to say I'm going to tell him exactly how I feel.

Tuesday Mar 16 #

(rest day)

Snowed most of the day. Knee isn't having it. So switched the rest day. Filled out forms for UK house sale. Had an unpleasant chat with the surgeon's billing department. Found out Liberty Mutual once again moved the goalposts on paying out. Regardless, pretty upbeat today.

Running 38:22 [3] 7.63 km (5:02 / km) +42m 4:54 / km
ahr:150 max:166

3 miles Threshold. Sub 8mins/mile pace so progress. Hike and Bike.
NB. Knee has one sore spot on the joint.
Looked up the $1400 knee brace. Amazon has it for $69.99. Wtf.
