A relatively easy session before tomorrow's event - lots of easy forest trail through the Nacka reserve then some exploring on the N side of my turf territory grabbing around 25 unique zones before upping the effort slightly and heading home.

Christian was down from up North so we rolled back the years with a lap of a reflector course and meal/drinks afterwards.

A bit naughty, wasn't sure at all that my ankle/peroneals were good enough yet for this but dropped a couple of tablets to make sure. So now that is one event in September, 2 in October and now a training session where I've taken an anti-inflammatory to make it easier/more enjoyable. It was supposed to be special occasions only! And I'm entered into a middle distance on Saturday, oops.

Didn't really get away with it either, by the end of the evening it was obviously inflamed. Could have done with just resting with my foot up and ice on it afterwards instead of quickly showering and going out. Fortunately by the morning it was smaller again. Got to look after it now.

Static Stretching & Massage 48:30 [0]

Training ache in left hamstring! A little bit in the right too. It's been a while since I did those balancing exercises that activate the glutes/hamstrings of course. But a bit crazy that I don't have ache in the lower legs, seeing as most of the rehab exercises concentrate on those.

Ankle a bit swollen from yesterday's ride - at first it was nice and loose but stiffened up a bit into the late evening. I really should have done some mobility work immediately afterwards - got to be smart and get proportional with the muscle recovery work.

Anyway was a bit worried about doing this session with a slightly swollen ankle but it went fine. It does seem like I have control of this latest issue now. I can still feel it coming on from time to time, like given a chance it will be a bigger problem again. Just got to stay on top of it with the massage/stretching, make it disappear completely and then focus back to the original problem.

shoes: continental ride tour

Mostly awful weather today but good chance to get a lot of points on the first day of a new round of Turf. Having said that more Turfers were out in the rain and wind than I expected!

Plan was to go West and simply aim for the yellow - this took me a long way out and into Turf territory that I'd never been to before, on the SW-side of the city. Was confident about getting the last 50 or so uniques to get my 1000 badge but by the time I was on my way back I realised that I was just a few short of that. Oh well, next time.

The odd murmur from the ankle from time to time but otherwise everything working well. Left knee functioning without any issues - as expected after so much LH-side problem work over the last week.

Started off with some massage and stretching on the calf muscles (loosen off the peroneals a little) then some simple balance and ankle strength work. After these I did try some of the more involved ankle exercises (not timed, just playing) to see how they would go - ok is the answer.

Lastly the full massage/stretching routine just not quite as extensive as recent days. Still with the usual emphasis on glutes, groin and quads however.
