So good to get back on the proverbial horse today after an enforced break over the weekend.
My knee was giving me some strange pains after a gumby mtb fall and some over tight bits an pieces.
I was particularly down about missing the Gatorade Sprint Triathlon on the weekend after having made some good improvements in fitness since my fourth in the last round at Robina.
Today I threw a tentative leg over my old Connondale and rolled out the door. My knee warmed up well and all going good day two I appears to be a temporary injury.
I managed a 70km ride and even had a little dig over some of the Strava.com segments -Strava cycling app- www.strava.com and felt okay.
Lunch time I did some Gym work at my Studio with TeamGAEC Clients consisting of some mobility work in the shoulders, a shoulder press set for strength and a classic crossfit wod named ‘Helen’
For time do 3 rounds of the following;
21 Kettle bell swings 24kg
12 pull ups
I did 7min57sec
I ended the day with a 10km trail run at a steady pace.
Lets hope I’m only tired tomorrow and the knee is ok.
I feel so much better for the activity that it made me think how important exercise is to battle depression. I am really keen to get involved with the White Cloud Foundation this year.
