Hill walking 2:20:01 intensity: (1:04:38 @0) + (54:56 @1) + (19:24 @2) + (1:03 @3) 9.5 km (14:44 / km) +727m 10:39 / km
ahr:88 max:140 (injured) shoes: 2019 Speedgoats

Headed up towards Fairfield with the ladies on a minging day - good company took my mind off the worst of the weather! Turned around early to come back down with Cath as she was cold, and I'd been planning on heading back early anyway, as I knew I'd be slow going down the hill and didn't want to hold anyone up. Did enough to make my knee swell a little but definitely no damage done, my quads were strong enough to take the strain off the knee.

Cycling (MTB) 2:13:35 intensity: (3:00 @0) + (23:07 @1) + (44:44 @2) + (46:49 @3) + (15:55 @4) 24.26 km (5:30 / km) +649m 4:51 / km
ahr:122 max:158 (injured) shoes: Boardman MTB Pro FS

MTB to the pub, the long way round. With Janine, Will, Ross and Kev. Some road, some trail, some crazy stuff. Gears not right. Legs not right by the end either.

Cycling (MTB) 5:30 intensity: (50 @1) + (2:09 @2) + (2:31 @3) 1.41 km (3:54 / km) +7m 3:49 / km
ahr:120 max:134 (injured) shoes: Boardman MTB Pro FS

And then a bit further on, to the correct pub. D'oh. Found birthday boy Jase and his doughty bunch of runners already eating the place out of grub and draining the beer barrels. Cheers!
1 PM

Cycling (MTB) 1:11:32 intensity: (47 @0) + (14:36 @1) + (29:02 @2) + (18:38 @3) + (8:29 @4) 12.28 km (5:50 / km) +250m 5:17 / km
ahr:120 max:160 (injured) shoes: Boardman MTB Pro FS

MTB back from the pub. Some talk of going further but Janine, Kev and I were happy to go the direct route. Plenty for my knee. Plenty for my bike, too - further gear problems diagnosed by Doctor Kev as a fractured hanger. Which would explain why they haven't been quite right since I bent it. Hello, Wiggle. But first, hello, several mugs of tea.

Cycling (Turbo) 1:45:11 intensity: (6:28 @1) + (23:41 @2) + (55:15 @3) + (19:47 @4) 50.33 km (2:05 / km) +698m 1:57 / km
ahr:131 max:151 (injured) shoes: Genesis Croix de Fer 30 2016

BMU - Purple Unicorn. Hm, probably the hardest workout of the programme so far, and with my knee still unhappy after Tuesday's session. Sensible? No. Did it hurt? Yes, towards the end. But now the week is ticked off, I can rest up, and the knee can recover over the course of a nice sociable weekend in the Lakes. A heady mix of anti-inflammatories and beer will do the trick.

6 PM

Cycling (Turbo) 30:08 intensity: (10:22 @1) + (15:45 @2) + (3:48 @3) + (13 @4) 13.47 km (2:14 / km) +133m 2:08 / km
ahr:113 max:144 (injured) shoes: Genesis Croix de Fer 30 2016

BMU - Pedalling drills. Easy night; glad of that, because knee has been duff after yesterday's low cadence efforts. L leg much worse at one-legged pedalling drills than the R.

Tuesday Jan 21 #

Note

Good chat with the doc today; off for an X-ray tomorrow and hopefully will get an MRI soon, too. Then we'll see what's afoot. Or a-knee.
7 PM

Cycling (Turbo) 1:00:19 intensity: (5:11 @1) + (42:33 @2) + (12:35 @3) 33.49 km (1:48 / km) +246m 1:44 / km
ahr:118 max:132 (injured) shoes: Genesis Croix de Fer 30 2016

BMU - Sneaky. Pretty easy, but the 60rpm reps started to hit my knee, which was unhappy and had swollen a bit by the end. Ice required. I'll keep cadence above 70rpm in future.

Running (Easy jog) 27:43 intensity: (23 @0) + (3 @1) + (50 @2) + (24:02 @3) + (2:25 @4) 4.89 km (5:40 / km) +36m 5:28 / km
ahr:136 max:148 (injured) shoes: 2019 Speedgoats

Knee test - jog/limp/walk - before going to see the doc tomorrow. No surprises: anything other than a very easy jog on a flat surface, where the knee is mostly straight when the foot hits the ground and push-off is extremely gentle, rapidly starts causing twinges & pains that quickly escalate into unpredictable knee buckling.
6 PM

Strength training (Pilates) 50:00 [1]
(injured)

And circuits. All good apart from the pain and instability in my L knee. Lunges had a 50pc chance of the knee giving way and me landing in a heap.
