MY Training Diary - October 2001

26th October

Swim.    Distance - 800m     Time - 22:26mins

I'm back!!!! My foot is still slightly sore and my back tender but I got the full go ahead from my Chiropractic doctor that I can now swim, but only front crawl.
I can't believe how unfit I felt! It's been just under a month since I trained last and I got out of breath so fast. I warmed up with a gentle 250m and then did some 50m but had to stop after 3 sets!! I also didn't want to push too hard on my 1st session back. So I did another 250m and then some 50m sprints and warmed down with some leg kicks and a gentle 50m.
I does feel good to be training again, but I know it's going to be a slow process. I just can't wait to get back on my bike.

18th October

Injury update.

My foot seems to be less sore now and after 3 trips to the Chiropractor I am feeling less tense in my back too. I haven't been swimming as I had a very hard session with some painful pressure point bullying end of last week. I looked at the photo of me at Crystal Palace in my suit before the swim, and my back is definitely lop sided in that picture. So I am really pleased that I may be sorted out for next season and then I can hopefully smash lots of this year's achievements!!

I am hoping to begin training again next week, My biggest concern is that I don't want to upset all the good work done so far.

I will keep you updated.


11th October

My 1st sports injury has arrived!!!

The pain in the heel of my left foot became too bad after my last race of the season, so I went to a sports injury clinic and I'm now being treated by a Chiropractic Doctor.
The pain is a result of months of training. My spine is out of line at the top and bottom causing a curvature which has resulted in my left calf muscle pulling a small bone in my foot. I am now under going a course of "aggresive" treatments to ensure the realignment of my spine etc.

So no training for a while. Lucky the season has just finished.
