Week 3 Training: July 1 – July 7

20130707-121637.jpg

Training summary:

Bike – 6.93 miles, Run/Walk – 2.19 miles

As can be seen from the numbers above, week 3 did not go at all well! In the main due to the news on Thursday of my osteoarthritis.

It’s been a difficult week to say the least. I had a lot of decisions to make – keep training and have the surgery on my foot and hope I would be fit enough after surgery for Dopey. Consider not running Dopey – consultant has advised against running after surgery as ultimately this will reduce the already short effectiveness (approximately 5 years) of the procedure.

Needless to say, instead of training regardless while I made these decisions, my heart was just not in it – although that doesn’t explain no swimming on Wednesday – that, I’m afraid, was just sheer damn laziness!

However, I eventually made my decision….

I am going to delay surgery until after Dopey. If I can’t run after the surgery, I’m sure as hell going to go out with a bang!!

So tomorrow is the start of a new week and despite our glorious weather (68F as I type this, which may not seem very hot to my American followers, but believe me it is hot for Scotland!), I will be back out on my bike with Mr M and then back in the gym on Tuesday.

Bring it on!!! (she says, trying to be positive!)

  1. Yahoooo!! You’re a dope for doing it but I love it. What better way to make your last hooray with 48.6 miles and five medals. Let’s be honest, I would probably do the exact same thing. Good luck on training….it’ll be tough but you can do it.
