The last days of 2010!

Well I managed to get back down to California on the 26th of December. I've had a bit of a dodgy knee but it's coming around. Starting January I'll update this on a regular basis! But here is the last couple of days

Today - 45 minutes SUPER easy run (my HR was jacked so I ran a slow-pace on the track with some walking); 30-min easy flop; lower leg massage; easy 1 hour spin; 40-minute easy jog. Done!

Yesterday - Another easy 2 hour ride to let the knee get to 100%, 2 x swim sessions (1 strength; 1 power). For the swimming, I'm using a mix of Doc's style and CV's swimming - paddles, short efforts with form-work.

Dec 23

Last day of work! I had a great morning swim with pull-buoy and paddles (longer sets) and unfortunately a shortened bike ride (45-minutes) indoor. I've been having some lateral knee pain (tracking issues) that started after a hard bike last weekend. I'm doing the rehab and should be good to-go post-Christmas!

Have a great Christmas everyone! In the next couple of days the days will be filled with lots of travel, packing and unpacking! Hopefully a run, swim and ride will get thrown in the mix!
