With swapping yesterday’s session for today’s, I was now looking at fitting in a bike and run of around an hour each. However, I was planning to work from home, so fitting in the first session this morning was easy, and I didn’t even have to get up at the crack of dawn, just 6:30am.

Decided to bike again after last night’s session, and tackled Angels, my long time favourite. Legs felt great and I gave it a good go.

Went to the docs at lunchtime for the results of the x-rays and bloodwork from the other week. No great shakes. A bit of degenerative change in my knee, blah blah blah…

Ran the 11k route to Echo Lodge Road. Out at a good clip, turned around into a headwind and realised that I probably hadn’t eaten enough today! Picked it up though and ran a very even split. Felt great – I am just loving running at the moment – I always do, but especially at the moment. I wonder if it will translate into race results?!

Oh, and my new front wheel arrived today too. Looks great, more on this at some point…

Much better day. Working from home, so managed a 10k run at lunchtime and an hour on the bike, plus a half hour strength workout.

30, 25, 20, 15, 10 = 100 pushups, plus planks and some swim cord exercises.

Ran to Echo Lodge Road, out and back in the snow. I thought my knee might be sore, but in fact I didn’t feel it running at all. I just gently negatively splat (split past tense?) the run, but gently only…

Bike was The Wretched sufferfest, and I made a good effort of it. Again, no leg pains. Back to feeling strong on the bike – nice.
