I did my long run

went for 112 min but felt realy tired so kept my tempo down and only did about 9 mile in that time.

but i felt good my achilies still hurt a bit from last weeks strain, my major worry was my hamstrings got some realy bad pain's coming from them towards the end. been streaching allday so fingers crossed they are ok.

Your trying to confuse us (me) arnt you Connor Confused Shall I post here or "what have I done today..." thread Shocked decisions for early am Crying or Very sad
Glad your achilles is on the mend --but hams Crying or Very sad (talk to Andy)
Wouldnt want you to be alone here so:

this early morning swim was hard, I couldnt even count strokes per one length never mind lengths so did some drills, intermingled with lengths ---and thought breastroke was a good option for tri's (as i kept being caught by people, plus breathing so much easier Crying or Very sad ) keep trying girl Embarassed Wore my new cap from santa, coupled with goggles (that give me panda eyes for hours afterwards) and nose clip (that keeps slipping) I looked the "biz" Rolling Eyes ---( Idea idea for next piccy)

Double spin last night so no swimming this morning, I am slowly working up to my 13 hours a week target and should have this sorted by next week ( being sensible for once and increasing effort slowly - see I can learn from my mistakes )

No swimming for a few weeks for me, so today will be 1hr turbo AM and you guessed it another 1hr turbo PM. May try and get out on the road if the weather improves..

... may also nip out tonight for a 3 mile run to test the back out.

When I was at the docs yesterday he recommended one of those Tunz units for the back. May nip up to Boots to get one later. The doctor was actually wearing one as he is also a runner so comes highly recommended.

It should be TENS or TNS machine, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator.

Ah, yes is used in child birth, but dre, it has many applications, and so can justify its worth if your thinking you need / want one Wink

Dre - the doc told me not to bother with pain killers / heat or ice on the back instead stick one of these on my back and it should relieve the pain and hopefully assist with the strain.

Probably just make me all nice and tingly and nowt else. Wink

TENS works by its stimulations interupting the pain signals to the brain, so breaks that pain cycle, also stimulates the body to make its own pain killers. So although you will feel it tingly (depending what setting it is on), it does have its place in treatments. Can pick up a cheap one -something like bodyclock" on web site, cheapest abour 30. Dont know about Boots.

Not sure if I am in the right thread for this - however, just logging my daily activities. Confused
3mile tempo run this morning. Aching quads a bit better. going to local town later for photo shoot. Cool Cycling club are doing annual charity ride and the local press will be there. Thats' 20 miles bike then.

FSS - yep you are in the correct thread, sorry, I'm boring everyone rigid with my dodgy back. Laughing

Thanks Sue, Just back from the shops, got one from Argos in the end. It's got all different settings from rehabilitation to massage to muscle training. So could come in useful in the future. Just need to read the instructions, power up the bad boy and away I go Wink

Thinking about, it does Simon Lessing use something similar, I'm sure I've seen an advert with him in it advertising one of these units?

as far as I can gather its a case of stick the electrodes on the hurting area ( never on the neck ) and turn the baby up til it tingles and leave.
