…well kind of.
I’ve not run since Sunday. I was planning a run tonight but I ran up Ludgate Hill for the bus tonight and noticed my left ankle is still a bit tender (as is my knee).
I did however manage to take the bike around the block a couple of times last night and plan to do the same today. It’s nothing serious, just acquainting myself with riding etc. Cycling is lower impact than running so I hope this won’t make the niggle longer to heal.
I’m very proud of my bike too and gave it a wash last night.
I won’t be running tomorrow as I am out so will pick it up again on Thursday as planned (hopefully). This should mean all I’ve missed is one scheduled run, I’ve been a bit active on the bike but sensible enough not to over do it and bugger up my ankle.
So there not completely off my feet just not running for a day or two.
I went for a spin on the bike as I aimed too – a few stops for traffic but I am feeling more and more confident. I went further than I have before and picked up some speed whilst concentrating on proficient braking…
I decided to wear the Garmin and was surprised how quickly I clocked up the KMs!
The timing was a little off and the wobble at the end is cause I spoke to my neighbour and forgot to stop the watch! Still I wasn’t tracking this for speed etc I was simply curious what I would cover on the bike verses on foot.
Not sure I am quite up to cycling to the lesson on Saturday but I can at least try to walk the bits I am not confident doing on Saturday. The main thing is I am enjoying it, it’s giving me more avenues to exercise and unwind and it doesn’t seem to be affected my ankle pain (which after I spent a while on the foam roller I realise it’s my calf!).
