Cycling 2:02:50 [3] 39.98 km (19.5 kph) +954m
ahr:191 max:152

The struggle - taking it easier, not spiking above 185 hr. Was about 2 minutes slower than last time (this time 23:47). I've decided there's no way to get up the struggle without feeling exhausted at the top though. It was rainy the over side of Kirkstone pass so I descended back to Ambleside and headed toward Grasmere, but it was drizzling so I went back to my car and read for half an hour. After this I headed up Loughrigg terrace, quite tricky on road tyres. Then to Blea tarn which is a cracking climb. The official segment starts on the flat bit at the bottom which I was chilling on 6:36, 1136 VAM
actual climb 4:45, 1367 VAM, KOM at 3:08 I'm 52% off.

I like the steeper climbs I think. To replicate these on less steep climbs I should just go into a higher gear and get out of my saddle, I always lose speed when I stand up in the same gear compared to sitting.

Going past Blea Tarn itself was a pain, filming for the Witcher meant loads of rude van drivers. Back to the car from here.

I'd walked some distance and climb for about 2 hours in the morning.

Quite tired - long day. Had walked up to Heptonstall from Hebden bridge, but too slowly to make it worth logging.

Walking 1:17:04 [1] 9.5 km (8:07 / km) +194m 7:22 / km

Feeling much better than yesterday, walk to Clayton Woods, quite slippery in places which isn't what you want for fast kms

Running 6:15 [3] 1.53 km (4:05 / km) +17m 3:52 / km

Run around the block to make my foot hurt for the physio. Turned out that it wasn't an in person appointment but another over the phone. I've been told to do heel raises and balance exercises and to come back after 6 weeks if it's not improved. Frustrating not to be able to have someone to actually look at it, but I'd at least learnt the names for the different bones this time so I could describe it properly. He didn't seem to be concerned about anything too serious even if I was.

So from now doing 3*10 heel raises a day, increasing by 5 every 4 days until I'm up to 3*30, then start adding weight. And 3*60s+ single leg standing on balance board making it as difficult for myself as I need to.

Cycling 51:11 [3] 18.72 km (21.9 kph) +316m
ahr:153 max:196

I was planning to go on a proper ride at the weekend, and had even woken up at 6:45 to do so on Sunday, but my knee was a bit too sore to make it seem fun. Then I was going to go on a decent walk but I hit my knee again which was very painful, so I didn't go on a walk until the evening, probably about 7km at 8-9 min/km.

This was meant to be a run day before the physio, but I woke up and my foot was already really sore so headed out to Arthington instead. Not expecting too much from myself I was pleased to be very close still to my pb, I paced it better this time but I still should have pushed more at the start I think. I was a lot faster on the steep end section than before 2:25 vs 2:40 for 460m at 14.2% avg. 5:54 vs 5:49 on the official segment, but this includes flat beyond the summit, so in future I'll use this instead
