    alright Bike and run 29 mins 2.68 km 00:19 11:06 pace

    Did 10mins on the exercise bike, varying loads, then a short run. Not even 2 minutes into the bike, not even breathing hard and my quads are burning already. Long way to go! Running feels ok, quite... read more

    The reason our yacht was at Okahu Bay being repaired - the big storm of 11 June put it here under the harbour bridge. I was on the 6pm news on TV3 when it happened.

    The new dinghy - actually bought it from Chris Dickson.

    Yesterday had to get our new dinghy for our yacht from the boatsheds in Ngapipi Road to the launching ramp at the yacht club in Okahu Bay. Plan 1 was to put it on my roof bars but David had to drop... read more

      Uhhh yes I could ;) but it's easier to power a smaller body through the water than a whole boat! Bet that was a tough workout and definitely worth logging!

      Will be back out again this week-end, had a bit much on the past few days to get the routine established again, but looking good from here on. Want to get back into the Takapuna Beach 5km series on Tuesday nights (which is where the foot saga started, will start out easier this time!), then Albany Lakes 10km series starting January.

  6. RUN
    Okahu Bay 1.75 km 00:35

    No not walking on water - this is the map for my row, see above. The Rowing workout is only set up for machines, doesn't accept that rowing can actually occur on the water!

  7. RUN
    alright Short slow plonk 3.09 km 00:24 12:29 pace

    Short slow run after Ak 1/2 M. Quads have stopped hurting but but when I started running found there was still not much GO in the legs! Freezing wind.

    Not bad considering I haven't run for months. Got an entry when they came out because I wanted to chalk up Ak Half no. 5 to get my Roadster number, but then didn't do any training to spea... read more

      Thanks Kim, it's coming right, I guess it's down to niggly level now. It's been 2 weeks, 2 days since the 10km race. Got physio again today. Problem with getting older, you just heal slower.

      And unfortunately they don't come right :( the foot that I injured does not feel the same! Did you tear it right across or smaller?

    good Exercycle at home. 5.6 km 00:13:30 15.5mph pace

    Just trying to fit some pedalling in as I can. Right heel PF is improving well. Lots of calf and Achilles stretches and rolling a 1.5L Coke bottle full of ice.

      Oh no! How disappointing, not to mention frustrating. My Dad stopped running marathons and took up cycling when he started suffering from PF (well at the time, I just knew he had a "sore heel", I'm assuming that is what it was!). Hope you can get some good treatment and get back into as quick as is possible.

      Thanks everyone, you're all awesome!! Just re-read my post, sorry @Kim_W, the unbelievably stupid bit was 'sposed to be ME, not you! Physio report is a bit more promising, confirmed it is a stress injury in the acute stage in the PF area. He thinks likely caused more by tight calves and achilles and it will come down quite quickly. Thanks Ad, he agreed about the frozen bottle rolling tip too. So go keep up those calf stretches everyone!

      Thats a symptom of PF niggly in the morning but improves throughout the day. Are you rolling it out? And always wearing supportive shoes?

      Thanks Peter. Thanks Kim, yes and yes. Stretch and roll before I put any weight on the foot, then a couple more times/day. Good arch support in running shoes certainly helps keep it away, wearing them all day. Was the sorest it's been for a while last night/this AM. Did cold/hot/cold soak. Got physio this PM.

    good Leg and core strength workout 00:20

    I keep not getting these workouts done. Figure short is better than none so fitted 20 minutes in. Squats, lunges, toe raises, leg lifts, planks etc.
