DSED 2019: Do something every day in 2019


#161

Hoping to get back to running at this Saturdays Parkrun. My knee is seriously gooshed, probably due to overuse, so I’m resting it at the moment.

Focusing on building strength in the legs, so lots of stretching and light weight work (hence the low/tonnage gym numbers)

4.5km walk this morning. 23.5km on the spin bike this evening

Rest up for a couple of days, just had a few minutes with the core sliders tonight the road. Past the hotel is tooooo dark and dangerous to risk running , soon be lighter nights, back home tomorrow so out for a run first thing Friday morning


#172

Spin class yesterday. Just recorded what I’ve done this week and numbers will be nowhere near last month. I know activity is down anyway


#173

I’m not counting my walks, but I’m not running for at least two more weeks. Very frustrating


#174

Positive action. Going back to Yoga on Tuesdays starting the week after next. That’ll replace one running session per week.


#175

Good swim tonight. Last week, I couldn’t use fins on the drills because of my knee problem. This week, I could. Felt pretty good afterwards too, so I’m feeling a lot more positive about it. Still not running until 9/3, but much less worried than I was.


#176

Spin class Sunday Monday and one today coming up. Hope to get 2 more this week. Resting tomorrow with a long walk.


#177

Two walks today totalling 9.5km


#178

Just finished my first session at Remedial Gym at our local Polyclinic. Really good session, and much more taxing than I expected. I wasn’t going to bother logging it, but it came to 1,452kg, which I think merits a mention.

Very pleased that we have this sort of service available on the NHS (in my area, anyway).

Also, last night’s swim session was the first time I’ve gone over 2km in the pool (or anywhere else for that matter). It was a set of speed drills so we’d expect to cover more distance, but also my lane buddy was in a frame of mind to go for it, and once I’d got into the rhythm we were pushing each other all the way, taking turns at the front to pull each other along.

Benefits of exercising with others.


#179

Still nursing the knee but it’s definitely getting better. Yesterday and today are travel days, so not much opportunity for anything.

I’ll do a yoga session tonight, just to keep stretching things.
