Decimated with injury. Headline figures below:
7 runs (28 miles) down 4 runs and 16 miles
5 cycle rides (75 miles) down 2 rides and 10 miles
4 swims (3400 yds) down 4 swims of swims and 3000 yards!
There was good progress at the start of the month with very good 10 runs. A few around 61-64 minutes. I was feeling strong and recovery was going well too.
Cycling was also doing well with the miles being increased for London to Brighton – but unfortunately, disaster struck. I hit 15 mph for the hilly route and damaged my ankle. You can laugh at my misfortune here
I took some time off and came back slowly but not slowly enough, my calf seized while Open Water swimming. You can laugh at my misfortune here
I have therefore completed a Triathlon – I have been injured in all three disciplines.
It’s now been 3 weeks of injury – my weight has increased 3-4 pounds and I am generally gutted. Luckily I am a Liverpool fan and am used to disappointment.
