Running:
5.5km - 32:30

First little jog after the radio frequency ablation 4 days ago. Leg still very bruised and hence painful. Felt very, very good!

Decided to skip the Belfast Marathon and run in the relay instead. Just in case...

24 Apr 2007

Running:
12.4km - 1:12

Nice and easy recovery run. Shoulder and neck still a bit stiff.

22 Apr 2007

Running:
31.2km - 3:03:30

Quite tough towards the end. Ran km 8 - 22 with the U&R crowd which got a bit fast after 10 miles. Everything else ok.

Chiropractioner

Have been to the chiropractioner to get my neck sorted. Looks like there is a lot of asymmetry present that not only causes the pain in the neck -;), but also in the lower back and the left ham string.

A lot of clicking and cracking of bones - felt much better afterwards. Have to go back now twice a week for six weeks...

17 Apr 2007

Running:

Easy recovery run; partly undulating.

15 Apr 2007

Running:
31.8km - 3:09

Well, well. 20 miles without major difficulties. Deliberately very slow to keep the HR under control. Looks like I have no option, but to sign up for for the Belfast Marathon ;-)

07 Apr 2007

Running:
24km - 2:19

First long run in some time. Went quite well. HR a bit high towards the end. Very promising.

Wii Sports

Stepped into the virtual world of Nintendo Wii. Very impressive indeed and far less strenous than the real thing. Played tennis, golf, table tennis and got knocked out in the 3rd round of boxing!
