Other News

Took a couple of rest days this week due to having what I think is plantar fasciitis. I’ve had it briefly before, strangely about this time last year. I’ve also got next weekend off, so I’m planning to run on it for now, and then maybe alter the schedule a little next weekend to allow more time for recovery if necessary.

For my triathlon training I’m worried about not getting out on my bike enough – hence the question of cycling to work on a Friday – I get an early finish on a Friday so might be able to get home in daylight now the evenings are getting lighter.

I’ve also been using the Slendertone System+, and should complete the 1st week a little later tonight. I’ll do a separate review of this over the weekend at some point. I’ve also been continuing with MyFitnessPal app which has been pretty good up to now.

Finally, I weigh myself every Friday after my swimming lesson. Rather annoying I forgot this week. Have to see if I can remember to go on Monday.

Race Entries

Sandy 10 Mile has been picked out as the race for April, and I’ve entered this evening. I’m also looking at Liverpool Tunnel 10k in June, which should be good practice for the Liverpool Marathon in October.
