Jan 13th 2011!

Happy new year to anyone who still looks in on this. I have been plagued by an injury in my right calf muscle for some time now and I have to admit that I did get quite down hearted about it. I drank way too much and ate way to much over the festive season pushing me up by around 3kg. I think I peaked at around 5 k above my ironman wieght. Thats actually quite a lot. I have now been able to run again a few times with no problem. I am taking it very very easy to start with and keeping the distance well below 10k. I plan to start bringing this up next week.
I have been doing quite a lot of cycle training on my turbo trainer at home and spinning classes which has helped to get me over the worst of it. I still plan to start the 80k run on Feb 5th with my two team buddies so that is my focus now. No injuries and just keep the running up but gently.
Once the run is done I plan to re focus on ironman training. I really need to get back into a pool!
My new lifestyle of commuting to Denmark for work every week is going to make this a challenge in its own right but it does also give me some opportunities to get some serious training done while I am here.
Sorry its been a while but not being able to train left me feeling quite low. It also gave me time to focus on my family more which I really loved. Kids get big soooo fast and I think my daughter could probably out sprint me now! My son has developed an amazing determination (also called being stubborn!) - ironman Max?
Have a good one
