Sunday Jan 28 #

Orienteering race 52:33 [4] 6.8 mi (7:44 / mi)

Binning Wood sosol.

Having planned here recently, knew where to go, so clean apart from some undergrowth-induced hesitation. Knee beginning to be troublesome towards the end, despite ibuprofen. No zip in legs, but fitness held up OK and not unduly tired at the end. 6 mins down on DonP by #14. (then again, he was 4mins faster at Parkrun yesterday, so...)

W up and down
Every little helps.

Left leg Granny-physio

Running 48:00 [3] 5.0 mi (9:36 / mi)

Strength&conditioning 30:00 [3]

Left leg granny physio

Running 50:00 [3] 5.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

In and back and to the pleasance

Cycling 1:05:00 [3] 20.0 mi (3:15 / mi)

Exercise bike at Pleasance

Note

FASIC with Pete Mitchell
Nothing obviously wrong with the knee, lots of weakness and imbalance in pretty much everything in the left leg. Pete went down every muscle and demonstrated how the left version is significantly weaker than the right. Assigned the knee problem to stresses ultimately derived from this total instability, plus occasional trauma from falls, which makes sense.

The gastroc is hopeless, though he claimed there is a tiny bit still functioning near the gastroc head.

Plan is to build strength in the other left leg muscles to restore equality. Limp-running and cycling wont help.

Various strengthening exercises which can be done without falling over: the illustrations make it clear this is granny-rehab rather than sports injury, but the numbers of reps are pretty demanding. Its all lying down, so can be done while watching telly.

Strength&conditioning 30:00 [0] 0.0 mi

Added in the hope of shaming myself into doing it

Monday Jan 22 #

Running 58:00 [3] 6.5 mi (8:55 / mi)

Craigmillar, ERI. Physio tomorrow, so took some brufen and tried a run. Noticable knee pain, but not so bad as to force a stop. Generally felt quite flat, as one might expect.
