  1. FIT
    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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. FIT
    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

  5. 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!!!

  6. 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

    good Planks 00:07:00

    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

  8. swim
    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

  9. RUN
    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

  10. FIT
    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.

  11. FIT
    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

  12. RUN
    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

  13. FIT
    good Plank Streak continued 00:08:00

    Planks and stretches. What a day.

  14. FIT
    good Plank Streak continued 00:06:00

    Another late night, another uninteresting plank session...

      Oh yes, did a complete cryptic, only missed three words. Pilchard? Whazzat? Should have got Outback and Demesne

      Nice planking! I never heard of a pilchard either, had to look it up.

  15. RUN
    good Drizzle, drizzle 5.6 km 00:37 10:37 pace

    Really slow in the chill steady rain and drizzle. Both knees were on strike today because they like heat, not cold damp. 13C, overcast. My left (good) leg got so bad I stopped and took the brace of... read more

  16. FIT
    good Planks and Situps, Pushups 00:14:00

    Finally did my full plank - situp - pushup - stretch routine. Shoulder did not mind too much. Hernia scar required hand assist for last half of the situps.

  17. FIT
    good Planks 00:06:00

    Same old planks. I'm irritated to report that the main casualty of my race yesterday is my shoulder which had been feeling pretty good. To compensate the bad knee, I use my arms and shoulders ... read more

    good MEC Burlington Bayfront 10 km 00:53 08:26 pace

    I took my mom so she could see the park etc. It was cold and windy, overcast. The only person I recognised was Angela W from the Newmarket race. I was 52nd overall and 2nd in AG. Now i'm sore ... read more

  19. FIT
    good Planks 00:06:00

    Planks. Then went for a swim and the pool was closed. I don't like the other pool that I could have swum at, so I took the day off.

  20. FIT
    good Plank Streak continued 00:06:00

    I've been kind of tired lately. Just did the minimum. Using up my motivation doing stuff and don't have any left over... just have to keep plugging away.
