Did the Great Scottish Run yesterday. Half marathon in 1:43, well chuffed. Not done this race or distance for 22 years.

Oh dear god am I paying for it today!?

I really need to work on my speedwork so that I'm not so destroyed!

No more races planned this year so I'm going to take this a recovery week. Light cycling, swimming and gym work. Back to running next week.

Lots of foam rolling and yoga planned as well.

Perfect thread for me.

Managed an average of 2h45m per week for Triathlon X in June which got me around in 19h34m.

Then it went a bit downhill with mojo and I only did 1h45m per week for the next 13 weeks before the Half X and ended up spending 10h04m completing that.

Weirdly, with no race planned until X in June 18 I now feel like going training again. Smile

Finally got back to some training at the weekend!

Saturday was a 5k on the dreadmill followed by some strength and core.

Sunday was 20k on the spin bike then 10 minutes on the dreadmill again. Followed this up with some more strength and core.

Feels good to be back!

Really enjoying running and swimming now that I don't care about events.

Decided to do a club run last night after 2hrs hard bike in the morning...fell apart and had to have the sweeper egg me on back. Duh.

Knees feel like crap and aching where the quads join the hip. Quads moaning all over actually Smile

It's good to have that relaxed feeling and not have it feeling like a chore.

Sooooo, what I thought was a calf injury appears to actually be my Achilles telling me I've overdone it.

No running and lots of stretching for the next few weeks!

This means I'm now concentrating on Swimming, Turbo training and weights.

Looking at it positively, for a 70.3 next year my run should be fine, it's the bike and swim time/fitness I need to work on.

Strangely this running setback could be a blessing.

All I need to do now is get back to training at least 7 hours a week, it's dropped right down this month to half that and I can feel my trousers getting tighter.

I'm going to consider as having been an easy month and now start working on base.

tight calf muscles are generally a contributor to Achilles problems

Spot on! From my previous thread you know I thought I'd strained the calf!

I'm doing a combination of calf and Achilles exercises to sort it out. It's eased right off over the last 4 days but I'm not going to take any chances so will resist the temptation to run for a bit.

Cycling and swimming cause it no issues at all.

Not a bad weekend at all! Up to the gym early Saturday and did 1700 metres in the pool followed by 45 minutes/16 miles on the spin bike.

Sunday, still no running so used the stair climber/elliptical for 30 minutes then a bit of strength and core.

Replaced my usual Monday morning run with a walk instead.

Achilles/calf feeling good, so will continue my rehab for another week before thinking about a run/walk.

Don't worry buddy, I intend to. No rushing back.

If it doesn't feel right next week, I'm not running on it.

No way I'm running until it feels 100%. Even then, it's going to be a long slow build up.

Rosey
I ruined 2017 with a calf strain, that wouldn't mend.
I had to not run for ten weeks to mend it, physio and stretching too.

I managed one decent ish run, that thankfully was in my A race.

Your doing a bit, it will mend, patience is a virtue !
