Down to earth with a bump

Earlier today I ran an 18:48 parkrun, my fatest time since Feb 2021, when I was a 48 year old spring chicken, and not an over the hill 52 year old

This afternoon I did a Zwift race on Ventoux - first 25 mins were fine, then the wheels totally came off - I don’t ever recall a collapse like this, the Final 5km I struggled to do 200w. Afterwards I have basicallly been sitting on a sofa for 2 hours, incapable of doing anything.

Be careful - I did an easy 5h bike ride last Sunday, felt fine whilst cycling etc. spent the afternoon feeling depleted, didn’t really improve and then had the whole week off work and had surgery on an abscess in my throat yday with tonsils being taken out. Sounds like a crazy one off but am sharing a room in Luzern Kantonsspital with a friend who had the exact same thing having been all around the place overnight as the ENT ward was overrun with loads of people having the same thing………there’s something ostensibly in the air!

A bit more sedate, but progress in my own little world nonetheless… A nice 16km run in the peaceful, morning sunshine. Absolutely glorious morning and this route is magnificent for wildlife nerds like me.

Physio is happy with achilles progress. Just need to stay sensible, carry on with the rehab and build upon my prehab routine (as well as actually sticking to it! :joy:).

Feels nice to be running a little bit more freely though. 100 miler dot watching this weekend has really fired me up as well. I really want to be in good condition for October and am keen to give that race a really good effort.

Another reasonably solid 18hrs 34

5 bikes - one turbo, then some 2hrs and some 3hr outdoor rides
3 swims - two easy pool and one easy OWS
2 runs - one treadmill and then my first outdoor run since Feb. Slow, but not dead

10 weeks until Frankfurt.

Still need a good couple of century rides, but getting there.
