Today I was hoping to be onsite of our new house at 7 AM to watch them pour the slab. It will take between 25-30 truckloads of cement. As luck would have it, we got pushed to Friday.
I hopped on the bike and took a ride, extending it almost 0.5 mile. I must say, the thighs are still burning. I also note from my Garmin stats that I need to step it up a little bit more. I fall into the trap of not wanted to push myself because I want to make sure I finish my distance target. Since I am using the cycling as cross-training, I need to get my cycling to level 3 or better in Garmin's "Training Effect" index. Level 3 or higher indicates that I am improving aerobic fitness, which is what I need from my cycling and swimming.
I did not have access to a pool this morning, so no swimming. I do have a couple of things to try in order to improve my kick, which will, in turn, help me improve form and efficiency in the water. Depending on how I feel after my run tomorrow, I could do a makeup swim session.
The plantar fascia did exhibit discomfort later in the day. I went to cold roller therapy and it helped quite a bit. I am not out of the woods with it, and will need to keep up with the roller massage until it is pain-free. I was careful to note my running form, and I think my running form is OK.
I'll run tomorrow, looking for whatever improvement I can find. Thanks for coming along.
