As my patience grows thin with injury, the winter arrives. As explained before my imbalance issues have transferred to my left side and my running has been halted almost completely. I’m back playing football and this isn’t causing pain. Lots of cycling, hopefully some kayaking and alot of strength and rehab has to be my winter plan. I will relax my running and hopefully work on technique both for the running and the bike.my running technique may be the cause of my pain if not a muscle fatigue factor. A winter in the gym awaits. I’m hugely dissappointed not to defend Sea to Summit but I would be injured for a year after it. There is always next year. I have come to the conclusion that 2016 was a bit of a racing right off. 2017 here I come!
On the lake, relaxing and hoping some fishing may help to heal my leg!
I decided to take part in the Mudfest run in Longford at the weekend. I knew the stop start obstacle course wouldn’t impact the injury. We took part as a team from work and it was great fun. Nice to take part in a race and not actually race, but have the craic. It was my first mud run and no doubt I would take part again.
So my real targets on the racing scene have to focus on, The Race, in March. This is still more in the back of my mind as I plan to improve on the bike this winter. I have attached some of the science to bike coaching that I will use to improve. It will take more than one winter but no time like the present.
Winter targets are to go from the technique of a novice to that of the truathlete or pro. The peanut shape in the link below would be an achievement.
