  1. walk
    good to the café 4 km

    I wasn't really in the mood to walk, but after baking today's rolls the house was so hot. Was drenched in sweat when I got to the café but the legs had started feeling a lot better around... read more

      no wonder you exercise so much - you gotta burn off all the carbs you bake!

      actually, the rolls have almost no sugar in them at all; the bread you buy from the store tastes like sweet cakes after you've eaten my very grain filled rolls. I have lost some weight since changing over to my own baking.

      I have always eaten one and a half artisanal rolls a day; one for lunch, one half with supper. Mine are much better than what I was buying. Cindy has stopped eating store bread so I have to bake a little more often.

      Thanks, everyone! Emma, didn't expect you to be there or I'd have looked for you! Plus I was way slower than your husband of course, since I'm still recovering from that botched operation.

    good an early night 00:12:00

    Hot hundreds last night, went to bed early (11:30) as I have to get up early! No hoops this time.

    Just the leisure day TM stroll. I didn't do the full set of physio exercises last night as it was nearly 2 am so I think I really feel the difference today, there was pain that I thought was i... read more

  6. RUN
    good treadmill 1.6 km 00:08:42 08:45 pace

    Just took it easy on the treadmill and tried to not injure my leg. Cut it short while the going was good.

  7. RUN
    good the easy jog 5.4 km 00:39 11:37 pace

    The easy jog around the loop. The trail portions were all splashy with some mud. My leg was really bad and locking up this morning so I have to assume it's something to do with taking a "... read more

    good easy day mill 2.39 km 00:20 13:28 pace

    I was doing some of those rainy-day things yesterday so didn't get much exercise except for our walk. So I figured it was time for the old treadmill. But it took a while to talk myself into it... read more

    good Day 241 00:12:00

    Hoops, planks, pushups after a good physio session. Right now my leg feels fine, damaged but without pain, the question is what will happen tomorrow.

  12. RUN
    good On the mill 2 km 00:11:00 08:51 pace

    Timed it perfectly to hit 11 minutes dead on. First km at 6:30 and second at 4:30, but I cut it short instead of going to 2.5k as I figured I was still feeling pretty good, so it was time to stop. ... read more

    good around the loop 5.6 km 00:39 11:12 pace

    Again around the loop, walking only about 600m of it this time. Wore my old Saucony walking shoes, to see how they compared to the Merrells; these shoes make one of my legs feel shorter than the ot... read more

    Tried all kinds of things, after spending 20 minutes struggling to get the kink out of the leg. It has a bistable state, in which one state seems normal but it won't stay there, it snaps over ... read more

      Richard, this *was* a rest day... and in the course of the day the leg improved steadily. I did more stretching tonight and it seems to be pretty good now. It's being a ridiculous ordeal, but I'm sticking to it and it's getting stronger all the time.

    I stopped this treadmill run to take the rolls out of the oven and decided that my leg wasn't benefitting from this jog so that's all for today, folks!

      Thanks, Javaid! I went the same route today and looked at the place where I tripped, and could not find anything unusual there. I had just run past a (large) teenage girl at that point, and what I tripped over felt like someone's foot hooked under my foot, so I'm wondering if she tripped me on purpose, and why! I did not look back at the time, just being happy that I hadn't fallen, but just kept going.
