Sunday May 16 #

Note
(rest day)

Another 'rest day' for the knees. Half-day motorbike jaunt up the west coast.

Saturday May 15 #

9 AM

Stretching 15:00 [0]

Decided I need to try do more stretching, so in typical Brad style started with a small set of 15 REALLY HARD yoga moves and have been sore ever since. Pillock.
4 PM

Cycling (Zwift group ride) 1:00:16 intensity: (48 @1) + (2:08 @2) + (12:51 @3) + (41:25 @4) + (3:04 @5)
ahr:146 max:168 shoes: Specialized Globe Vienna Disc

Randomly picked group ride; had to try hard to keep a small group of 4 working together. Total wreck at the minute. Bad knees, glutes a mess of painful knots, sciatica, and I am also a fat git.

Friday May 14 #

8 AM

Walking 1:00:08 intensity: (25:22 @0) + (33:10 @1) + (1:36 @2) 5.85 km (10:17 / km) +127m 9:16 / km
ahr:90 max:111 shoes: Hoka Stinson 4 ATR

Both knees still swollen :-(. This "running" thing is clearly bad for them.
5 PM

Cycling (Zwift workout) 50:03 intensity: (2:10 @1) + (30:32 @2) + (17:21 @3) 25.75 km (1:57 / km) +207m 1:52 / km
ahr:122 max:137 shoes: Specialized Globe Vienna Disc

10-12wk FTP Builder Week 6 Day 2
Random workout, easyish. Didn't seem to make the knees any worse, but sensible to not push it until the swelling has disappeared.

Thursday May 13 #

Note
(rest day)

Another rest day required, to try to reduce some of the knee swelling.

Wednesday May 12 #

8 AM

Walking 52:42 intensity: (9:18 @0) + (39:50 @1) + (3:34 @2) 5.15 km (10:14 / km) +136m 9:02 / km
ahr:95 max:118 shoes: Hoka Stinson 4 ATR

Right knee taking its turn at being wonky today - also getting some sciatica down the leg with a bit of foot tingling, likely tied to the glute/back issues first noted on Monday. Sigh! Just a short stump/stroll this morning.
6 PM

Orienteering 53:39 intensity: (15 @1) + (11 @2) + (10:34 @3) + (37:54 @4) + (4:45 @5) 5.5 km (9:45 / km) +192m 8:18 / km
ahr:151 max:165 shoes: 2019 Inov-8 O-Roc 340

South Achray WEE, Green.
Nice course by John H, area in top condition at the minute. It helped that the sun was out too! Two duff-ups (ca. 6 minutes dumped!) and I had barely one functioning knee (both now swollen post-event), but amazingly I managed to be within seconds of Rhys again. How can we both be so consistently cr*p?

Tuesday May 11 #

Note
(rest day)

So whilst neither Strava nor Garmin Connect include orienteering in their activities list, the latter DOES include motorcycling. Since I rather suspect that they had Valentino Rossi wresting his MotoGP bike around a race track more in their minds than me hustling my X-ADV along the long route home from Livi - even when that was via Broughton and the Devil's Beef Tub (whoops!) - I shall refrain from logging anything. A rest day it is. Vroom.

Pre-Pilates warm up spin. Strapped the old bus onto the turbo for a change. Niggly glutes/sciatica, relaxed after about 15 mins.
