I did it again. Two weeks before a marathon, I ran a half marathon. And my left Achilles tendon didn’t feel right, but I didn’t quit. And now I’m hoping for recovery and to be able to go out a few times before the big M.
Why I didn’t quit…?
- The no quitting philosophy
- First race in new age group
- Actually finished the 13.1 mi in a decent time , 1:30 . 3rd in my age group (M50-54)
So now chances are that I won’t run Chevron CityToSurf Marathon Perth if my left ankle isn’t in decent condition. Won’t know until race day…
Started with a new physio:
Jeremy Ingram at Body Logic Physiotherapy
If you just look at the numbers, you’d think I lost. But no, I think I made it!
I think I effectively shaved 4 kg off my starting average weight. What does that mean. I went down and up several times. Most of it fluid and fluid retention. But I burnt off plenty of fat. How did I get there?
- Increased ride to work and back to 4 times a week
- Controlled drinking
- Suspended juice at night
- Lighter dinners with less carbs helped.
- Maintained my Tuesday night swim drills with Kay Smith
- Consistently swam and run on Sunday morning
To be continued…!
Oh no, once again I’ve gone past the 71 kg mark! Something needs to be done so (keep reading)
