9 AM

biking 1:20:25 [3]
(injured)

From home to Neild Road and back - for hill climb race with VCL.

R ankle is still bothering me - weightbearing is better, but I'm still angling my foot out and walking on my heel. Riding doesn't bother it too much unless I'm unclicking from my pedal.
10 AM

biking race 9:12 [5]
ahr:154 max:165 (injured)

.5 sec improvement over last year....all that training by osmosis has paid off ;-) Not that bad, considering I'm not race ready and carrying a few pounds more. Maybe the extra pounds I've put on my frame was offset by the lighter bike......

I was 11th in the A's, one place out of getting a point for my efforts.

I was close to being a DNS as my cranks were loose and I didn't have an allen key with me to tighten - I had to ride back into Langford with the hope that a local bike shop was open Sunday and indeed one was. Perfect timing as I got back to hit my start time two minutes ahead - warmed and primed for the hill climb. I'm going to have to fire my mechanic, me.

R Ankle:

Weight bearing is better - swelling is coming down. ROM is still limited but it's coming along.

Run 48:31 [3]
ahr:135 max:173 rhr:41 slept:4.5 (injured) shoes: Brookes Cascadia

Mt Doug: a great run for about 48 minutes, until I was coming down off the top on a steep, loose rock path - went over on my R ankle and felt/heard a tear with immediate pain and subsequent swelling in the lateral aspect. Fook, says I. Luckily I was fairly close to my start point and was able get back to the car without too much trouble. I was initially able to do the AR shuffle run, but that became too painful for weight bearing, so I did the hop-along walk until I got back to the car.

Now it's Ibuprofen and RICE. I'm going to see what it's like tomorrow to decide if I should have it looked at. I don't have any discolouration in the area so I don't think it's that bad....just painful to weight bear. ROM is pretty good with ankle flexion and extension (limited pain at extremes), but anything else is painful. I think there is more CF rather than ATF involvement.

I am not impressed.

12 AM

biking 1:17:05 [3] 35.82 km (2:09 / km)
slept:5.0

Easy ride along H2Ofront - 2 x hill repeats to the observatory at Gonzales Park. Meandered along the route with no real purpose other than to enjoy the ride and today was that day.

I've been fighting off a cold for the last few days and haven't been sleeping well.

My winter insulation doesn't want to abandon my frame yet. I should read the Farmers Almanac - maybe it's an omen, i.e. tough times ahead? Bring on the carbs!

My reality check is knowing I haven't been active enough to burn off the calories I'm consuming, so the easy way is to change my diet, reduce intake and increase activity.
