Cycling 57:00 [3]

Cycling to work and back.

Sunday Jan 25, 2009 #

Cycling 32:00 [3]

Miscellaneous cycling.

Orienteering race 1:14:12 [4]

QOC Greenbelt Blue - turned out to be correct in thinking I was physically up to running but I felt fragile and unable to accelerate strongly when the situation called for it and the impact forces involved were not kind to the section of my back just below the shoulder blades, which have become the main painful area . Similar aftereffects to those experienced on Tuesday afternoon but considerably less severe. At a minimum, I'm sticking to cycling and the pool for the next week. I'm undecided as to whether to do the sprints at Lake Fairfax on Feb 1 - hopes of being able to compete normally in the Winterlude Triathlon and run hard enough at the Vancouver Sprint Training camp for it to be useful technical training may depend on not doing so. Or perhaps everything will heal nicely over the next several days.

Flutterkicking to Hungarian lesson 8.

Cycling 1:01:00 [3]

Cycling to work. Plan on going to the pool this evening to see how that goes. Hope to orienteer on Sunday but will avoid running at least until then.

Going to the pool on the way home went fine, at least.

Swimming 20:00 [2]


Deep Water Running 1:40:00 [2]

Water running part of long, slow workout. Listened to two Hungarian lessons, one new, and various music. Had forgotten how long Jupiter from Holst's The Planets is.

Cycling 1:03:00 [3]

Good news - at least I seem to be able to cycle without pain. This was to work and home by way of PCRM.

Running 1:35:00 [2]

Very easy run downtown, through the less dense humanity around the Washington Monument and the fringes of the denser crowds heading to the parts of the Mall between it and the Capitol, and back in time to watch the actual ceremony and speech at home. Figured I had to go see what the crowd was like but being there during the main event was dispensable.

Felt ungood during this but would not have turned on injury flag for that. The injury flag is for the debilitating, apparently muscular aches and pains around the right half of my rib cage through the rest of the day, not continuously but caused by adopting many and various body postures I'm still getting a handle on (inhaling to the maximum is bad as is almost any position involving leaning my torso without supporting it with at least one arm on something solid). These were to some extent preexisting and can't have been helped by falls onto my torso during my two most recent long trail runs but something about this run (cold, pavement?) seems to have pushed them over a threshold. Aleve and a hot bath have provided some relief. My best theory at the moment is that I've got a broken rib.
