The last week has been a little different. I had been experiencing hip problems for a few weeks and decided it was time to recover. I reckoned a few good bike sessions, both on the road, in the gym and on the turbo trainer would help. These and combining some leg strength work over 5 days and I would be good to run by the weekend again. The good news is, my plan has worked! I managed a good brick session, including my 10km hill route in the middle and my hip was fine. Lets hope this is long term. This week started with a good gym outing yesterday, a rest day today and I’m hoping to do a bike/run/bike again tomorrow all going well.
Football started back tonight as well, so my big decision of whether to play or not comes into the equation. I am swaying towards going back. This is due mainly to the fact that I miss team sport and training with my friends. Adventure racing and any individual sport can become a lonely type of training when you put long hours into it.
Oh and hopefully now that you have read all of my post I can fill you in on my heading ! As I ran down the trail on Saturday a mouse joined me for a few metres. It must of been a traumatic moment for the poor little dude, as it ran along looking up at this ape pounding the ground around it. Luckily we dodged eachother and we both survived!
