  1. Was going to cut the grass (despite my cold) but a torrential storm blew up and so I went to my client site, just beating the worst of the storm. Trees broke, branches flew through the air, the big... read more

      The rest will be so good for the knee! I bet you won't gain much for weight and if you do you'll work it off pretty quickly !
      I would be that lady haha running trails dirong the storm. At least she was wearing bright colors !

      Sounds like a rest day for you. Besides the planks.

    good Planks and Situps 00:11:00

    Planks, situps, stretches. And darn it all, I seem to be coming down with a cold.

    good Planks 00:07:00

    Usual planks and stretches. Geez, the knees.

  4. walk
    good Car pickup and dropoff 4 km 01:00 24:08 pace

    My car had a recall, so I decided to drop it off, walk to the client site, then walk again to pick it up, as there is a gravel trail which used to go all the way. However I discovered that the trai... read more

    good Plank Streak continued 00:07:00

    Planks and some stretches. Have to massage the knee a lot, and am doing the physio exercises I had to do after the knee operation some years ago. It's improving a tiny bit each day I think.

  6. swim
    good Pool Mile 1600 m 00:55 55:19 pace

    This was a kind of hellish swim. I had to share with a fast guy so I kept losing count, I could have swum as much as 1750m but am not sure. I ran into a teenager who suddenly thrust his legs into t... read more

    good Planks and Situps 00:10:00

    Planks, plus situps and stretching. The knee did not improve with yesterday's light jog so there will be no running at all for a few days... sigh.

      Thanks... 2 years ago, constant activity was all that kept my knee going... so I was reluctant to stop, but right now it appears that at least 2 weeks of rest will be necessary! But I will try to swim more and hopefully that will help keep me from turning to a blob of blubber.

  8. RUN
    good Easy, Easy 1.7 km 00:12:00 11:21 pace

    I slept in so couldn't swim this morning. So I decided to do a very slow and gentle test run. Basically I figure on being able to just gently do a couple of kms every other day, and maybe swim... read more

  9. FIT
    good Planks 2 km 00:07:00 05:37 pace

    Planks and a bit. Worn out after a long day. Claiming the distance I walked with my mom plus earlier, carrying sacks of gravel.

    good Planks 00:06:00

    Just the planks. Knee has not felt so bad since the operation. I spent a lot of time just massaging it. I think it's recovering but I will have to refrain from racing for at least a couple of ... read more

  11. My old friend Ian Firla ran Berlin marathon in 2 hrs 51 minutes, said he cramped in the last km and couldn't break 2:50... I'm so proud of him I had to brag. And Robert Gudzak got 3:05!!!

  12. RUN
    good Whitby Park Run 5 km 00:27 08:38 pace

    I'm just guessing at my time for this run and will correct it later. I was not planning to race this weekend because the knee was atrocious. But then I had to see my wife in hosp. So I thought... read more

    Darn planks. Fell asleep again puzzling over the cryptic xword and woke late. Planked, stretched, went to bed, and suddenly for no reason I was coughing and choking and retching. No idea what happe... read more

    good Truncated Swim Session 1100 m 00:33 48:16 pace

    My usual pool is still closed so I tried another one near my customer site. It was late, I was unfamiliar with the place, and I was nervous about it. The first locker I tried would not lock, and th... read more

    good Easy Loop 3.2 km 00:20 10:03 pace

    The bad knee has been extra troublesome since the walk in the steel toed work boots, even though I thought I was doing a great job of swinging along effectively. So I decided to do a short run toda... read more

    good Planks and Stretches, Pushups 00:12:00

    For some reason i could not remember to do situps. It must just be my body's self defense against injury... Anyway, got other stuff done.

    good Plank Streak continued 2 km 00:20 16:05 pace

    Walked 2km in my steel toed boots, which was painful at first but then I got into the swing of it. I figured, might as well claim it. Also planks. Too many things on my mind so I forgot situps etc ... read more

    good Incy Wincy 5.6 km 00:35 10:03 pace

    The shambling old wreckage that used to be yours truly, staggered and tottered and winced around the usual loop plus hill repeat. Jeepers, I felt antiquated today. Sunny, 17C, first touch of autumn... read more
