Running 12:28 [3] 2.58 km (4:50 / km) +57m 4:21 / km

Only running because I was rather late, foot worse because of it, quite painful whilst running actually. Pierced foot much better than the last time I ran (which admittedly was the day after rather than 15 days after). Physio booked at the doctors for the 13th Oct, hopefully they can do something.

Walking seemed alright though, might try and go for at least an hour a day at a brisk pace just so I can do something active.

Cycling 1:03:17 [2] 25.39 km (24.1 kph) +106m
ahr:147 max:170

Easy along to the locks just beyond Apperley Bridge and back on the canal path. Lower back started hurting after 20 minutes (getting progressively earlier and still hurting a little the next day), rest didn't help when I was on holiday so I think I should cut cycling out for a bit, fix my mountain bike to see if I have the same problem on that, and actually work on my core which will either sort the back problem, or give me abs.

Cycling 1:11:07 [4] 29.31 km (24.7 kph) +589m
ahr:166 max:196

Rolling along the lake from Bowness to Ambleside at an easy pace (still managed a 21min 10km!), then ambling around a little lowering my hr before finally attacking the struggle. My hr shot up to above 190, despite planning to keep it at max 185 for the duration, (pretty much on threshold I think). I foolishly thought that it would be alright as I was feeling fine, about a minute later I can assure you I wasn't and suffered from this initial effort for the rest of the climb. I kept pushing the best I could and was able to get a little recovery on the flat section near the end, but my legs were shot by then anyway. I was probably quite a sight at the end wobbling around on my bike before plonking myself onto a bench. I tried my best but probably more to come on this one with better pacing. I didn't have enough gears for the descent into Windermere, but probably safer this way. Lower back hurting again by the end, Dad said he saw a chiropractor in his early 20s and has been fine since, maybe I need to see one.

The struggle: 21:53, VAM 1066 for the whole climb (first km at 1347), 65% off an insane Rohan Dennis effort who has the KOM at 13:07, 389m climb over 4.6km at 8.4%
