    good Treadmill therapy 2.87 km 00:19 10:22 pace

    The usual treadmill therapy followed by the usual stretches! I kept it easy once again, and avoided making anything worse. I'm starting to want to try biking once more, but when I was talking ... read more

      If that's the case, I would try stationary bike first for about 5min max with no resistance. Don't want a setback at this point.

      Robert, That was what I tried the last two times, even that was a disaster. I've given the stationary bike away now! I'll try a 5 minute ride though, just pretend I'm a newbie LOL, just down the street a bit and back. See what happens.

    good planks, weights 00:16

    Hot hundred planks, and also I did my long neglected (well, since last week) weights workout.

  3. RUN
    good On the mill 1.6 km 00:06:32 06:34 pace

    Slow (6 min/km) for about 400m and then sped up, stopped at 1km (4:12) and then decided to do the added 600m. Was going 16.6km/hr at the end. At 1.5km it was all "kill me now", but I mana... read more

  4. RUN
    good the usual loop 5.6 km 00:33 09:29 pace

    Just slowly along the usual loop. I'm only estimating the time from looking at the clock at home before and after, so I may be faster when I do this loop but I'm OK with seeming slow. The... read more

    good planks, planks 00:09:00

    Hot hundred planks and situps last night. It was really late so I didn't get fancy.

  6. walk
    good on the mill 2.9 km 00:19 10:15 pace

    An easier therapy session on the treadmill... legs were pretty sore at first and felt better after. I figured I'm pushing a little too hard on therapy days so I eased off today. Have a great W... read more

    good day 144 00:09:00

    Twelve twelves of hot hundreds... also situps etc., last night.

  8. RUN
    good The usual loop 5.6 km 00:31 08:54 pace

    Just easily around the usual loop. The bad leg was bad for about half of this because I kept pushing too hard. So I would slow down, get bored, start daydreaming and then find myself going too fast... read more

    good Last night's planks 00:12:00

    planks, pushups, situps, etc. last night... just keeping going.

    good coffee shop and store 4 km

    A holiday stroll to the coffee shop and the 365 day store. They didn't have the food I wanted, so we went home, then talked about it and now we have to go back! For something else they did hav... read more

    good Last night's planks 00:11:00

    Planks, glutes, ITB, situps, etc. last night... as usual, just before I crawled up to bed!

      A good question, Daniela! I don't know. What happens is that I am working into the night on projects and then I realize I am so tired that I cannot stay awake another minute. So I go downstairs and do the planks, then go to bed. Would it help to skip the planks? I would lie in bed thinking, "I didn't do my planks." And get up. So I think it helps, that way! :)

    good The happy hobble 3 km

    Café, bank and grocery walk. The leg was sore and I had to walk carefully but it held up OK. I think I need to take it easier for a little while, I've been pushing it a bit. Have a great Sunday!

  13. RUN
    good Therapy in the Field 5.1 km 00:33 10:24 pace

    I realized I haven't been running in the grass for a while and it really helps the bad knee a lot so I went there today. Been racing on Sundays for a while instead of running in the sports fie... read more

    good MEC Burlington 5k 5 km 00:24 07:46 pace

    My official time is 24.19 which makes no sense since I passed the guy who got 24:10. An OK race. Have a good Saturday!

    good Easy jog 4 km 00:25 10:03 pace

    Just an easy jog through the springtime morning. Sunny, 13C, light winds, lots of flowers and scents -- the lilacs are now blossoming, and the crabapple trees. My leg was pretty bad throughout and ... read more

      whether to race.... may depend on what kind of "pretty bad" you're talking about. some prettybads can simply slow you down, some you can overcome with determination ... and some prettybads can lead to damage if you push too hard too soon.

      That's a lot of racing. Hopefully things will be good by race day.

    good therapy day! 2.93 km 00:19 10:09 pace

    It is always such a bore to contemplate going on the treadmill for my alternate-day therapy walk-jog intervals but once I'm there I always have a lot to occupy my mind! And the leg improves, a... read more
