Fitness log - June 2017

Postby BLES » Tue Jun 13, 2017 11:46 am

I started running again yesterday after a almost 4 week cold and flu that I simply couldn't get rid of. I must say it felt good to feel the sun on my skin again although I was quite tired after the 9 km I ran home after work.

Today my wife will pick me up halfway as I could feel some strain on my left knee. I don't want to push to hard and be out with a knee injury. :( It is so damn good to be back on the road although I'll take it slow for now. :D

Well done for getting back into it. I've been off the bike for a few weeks due to lack of motivation. Need to get those pedals turning again.

I entered a sort of triathlon on the 25th.

22k trail run / 44k mtb ride / 60m swim organised by Pirates. Could be interesting.

Thanks for the support Tony. Yesterday I almost cut my time by 1 minute. I think in 3 weeks’ time I'll be smiling again when running... :lol: :lol:

Some lovely distances covered over the week-end Thug. I only managed to do a 5 km run with my son on Friday morning. I will be running a 5 k after work again. :thumbup:

Well done Thug. How long did it take you to finish?

Thanks Bles.
I don't know what the overall time was but the legs were all split and didn't follow consecutively.

Started the run at 8 ish. The cycle started at 11 and the swim started at 2:30

I don't know if they work out the individual times or not.
