First time running yesterday in nearly 3 weeks physically felt great breathing no problem.
I think I was a bit silly to go ahead and do 5 miles straight up 4.3mile in my left foot on the outside just underneath had a sharp pain I probably shouldn’t have carried on but did anyway.

Can’t walk to good on it and struggled to put a trainer on last night it’s a strange feeling outside of the left foot in the middle slightly underneath any ideas?

Was meant to run today but of course couldn’t so just did this cycle instead.

1.5 Mile Run - 10:40
2 Rounds of 10 Hill Sprints - Press ups between each sprint
1.5 Mile Run - 11:09

There is definitely room for improvement.

Good practice running the return on the hills today.

Out time was around 11:30, trying to keep things slower but a ~8:00 pace feels quite difficult when you’re getting going/downhill running.

Then the return.... 10:00 on the dot. Nice constant incline, very happy to pull 10minutes out of the bag.

Steady 3 miles @ 8:01mm this morning sitting in HR Zone 2/3, annoying having to build my running back up after injury but keeping at it

Today was sprint day, 10x400m with 2 minutes rest in between. Average pace of 3:20/km per sprint. Running in 37c weather was a challenge.

Currently recovering from a rather tedious surgery so started working out whilst also quarantined, very low-intensity as I still have alot of internal bruising in both feet.

Physio exercises for legs -

Straight Leg Raises - 10 Second hold- 3 x 10 Reps
Single-Leg Bridges - 5 Second hold - 3 x 10 Reps
Clamshell with resistance bands - 3 x 10 Reps
Half-Squat Isometric hold - 5 x 30 Seconds

14 Minute workout using sledgehammer, shovelglove workout - link below

Sit-ups to the VPJFT Beep, so weak after 2-3 months of doing jack given the surgery, won't even mention the # *text deleted*.

Long long long road ahead

14.4!? Gee whip that takes some doing!

Whats your 1.5 mile return?
Tested for the first time on tarmac last Thursday, achieved 08.59.

I was paying quite a bit of attention to the turns this morning. Pivoting off either leg each turn. That coupled with 5 weeks on the Fintan Circuits, that has rocketed my upper end speed. I honestly cannot recommend them enough.

Also, the last time I did a bleep test was in school and there was a guy in my PE class who was out there on his own after level 10-10.5. He ended up on 14 something and I remember us boys sitting watching like it was Pamela Anderson doing laps. Just thought to myself this morning, if he could do it back then why can’t I do it now. It’s all in the head

14.4 is very impressive tho! Was it the 20m you did? As I know the ones back in school were 15m.

Been keeping everything ticking over. Decided to do a 5min best effort run today and compare to when I first did one at the start of Garmin running plan.

7th July - 0.71mile, 7:00m/m
Today - 0.85mile, 5:53m/m pace

Happy with that progress. Now onto gainers and compound lifts.

4 miler this morning @ 8mm on the ITC training area, keeping the pace steady and just slowly going to build up the mileage to get anywhere near where I was pre injury

Fantastic training area. Are you familiar with
‘The Land of Nod’ which is a notoriously difficult area of terrain
