Week 9 of Rehab

This week no trip the phsyio, instead to the Doctor. Yeap I've got sinusitis which in turn has given me a sore throat and really bad cough. Like my lungs are come up cough.

Good news is the doc gave me some drugs. Better news they are working.

Tomorrow I start back training with my PT after week off and with 10 days before the first tri of the season should recover in heaps of time and be ready!

Tri Season 2010/2011 Goals

With the first Tri of the season due to start in just over 2 weeks I thought it might be a good idea to post some goals for the upcoming season.

This year I have registered for the complete Xosize series all 5 races. Last year I did two races and loved it. I completed both races in around 47m 5s. The goal this year is to bet that time and complete all 5 races.  Recently in the Sandy Half Point I smashed my 10km PB by over 3mins. Ok I did injury myself but I got the feeling it was over training and running form.

My girl friend is also keen to try a Tri and we are planing to do a team tri with a race in the Active Feet series.

So what have I learnt in the last 12 months, well I have done countless KM’s in Running, Swimming and Cycling. I am stronger and fast and tomorrow I tune 40.

Bring on the new Tri season and keep following my blog and twitter pages

Week 8 of Rehab

Today another trip the Physio! He is very happy with everything to the point that I do not need to see him for another month! Yeah!

So I did a 3 x 5min run and 5 min walk, basically from here on we keep the time to 30mins but change the splits. in short it's now 3 x 6 min run and 4 min walk, then 7min run and 3 min walk then 8min run and 2 min walk then 10mins running.

So after my physio session I did a  3 x 5min run and 5 min walk.

The big question, am I doing the Spring in Shape Race 2. No. with the first Tri only 2 week away I'm playing it safe.

Event Report – Ride around the Bay

Not really a race, but a event! Being my first event I choose a ride that I felt I could complete without too effort.

If any of you know event there are 4 rides 2 x 250km around the bay from 250km, 210km 50km and 80km schools challenge. I choose the 50km event it started on time and as we took off It started to rain down through City and over the Westgate Bridge through Williamstown to Altona and back again.

It was a real funny to ride over the Westgate Bridge for many years I have driven over the bridge but not ridden over it.
After getting to the turn around a 5min break then back on the bike and headed back.

Pity the weather was not better but still fun.

Tomorrow I back the Physio so we will see what he has to say about running again.

Pictures of the event will come

Week 7 of Rehab

Today I didn't have to go and see the Physio! Yeah! Things must be good if this is the case, however today I ramped it up to a 3 x 4min run and 5min walk.

Leg didn't feel sore afterwards. So what’s next? I have ride around the bay this weekend and then back to Physio on Monday.

Week 6 of Rehab

Today another trip the Physio. Good news is that I don't have to see the Physio for another 2 weeks!

From today I now increase my running to 3 sets of 3 mins run and 5 mins walk follow by a rest day and repeat.

After I have done 2 sessions of 3 sets of 3 mins and 5 mins walk I can then increase the run bit to 4 mins repeat then increase the run to 5mins

The big question is will I be running the Spring into Shape on the 24th Oct. Well ask me in 2 weeks.
