Thursday AM
3km run 18min
gym:
5 x pullup +3kg x 3, pushup +3kg x 8
inverted row + 3kg 3 x 6
jump up +3kg 5 x 3 x big step - probably 0.8m
2km run 18min
1km walk 10min + coffee
60 minutes

PM
3km walk/run 19min
2km walk/run 15min
gym:
foamrolling focused on legs - I am experiencing some dense tension in my left inner calf and shooting nerve sensations from heel to hip along my left leg. To balance this out there's also a right front quad 'tweak', or slight nerve 'pinging' that occurs at very selective leg positions. Back to back days running may have brought this on. Perhaps. I've experienced similar nervous sensations following a lymphatic drainage massage 10 years ago. Irrationally I decided to walk/run through it as the sensations lessened when I ran.

I'm listening to my body and having 3-4 days rest.
2km walk/run 25min

After an edit I realised I included jumpups in my morning workout. It's likely there's a connection between my evening unusual leg sensations and my morning jumping.

Sunday AM
woke up way too early.
2km jog 20min
warmup movements
sprint 6 x 3 to 4 increase/decrease pace over 50m

this workout was not the best decision. left calf and right quad is still experiencing funny sensations. i think i'll be catching the bus for a few days.

New training cycle after Easter break. Was nice to have the time off. I did not enjoy sitting on the bus commuting to and from work. The break was very relaxed and my diet was under control until Easter Sunday when I ate all the chocolate.

My left leg is still experiencing the same odd sensations (overtightness and a nervous tingling) which is unfortunate as I'm going to keep running and work through it.

PM
3km run 20min
gym: step ups, hanging, ankle and calve mobility.
3km run 20min

early today my bosses boss had a little chat with me about a complaint about a telephone interaction that occurred last week. i had to say i couldn't recall any interaction of note on that day. this complaint, of extreme rudeness and unprofessionalism, was received by my bosses boss, from their boss, who was told by one of the HR team, who'd been informally told by the complainant. i indicated that if i had offended someone i would apologise but that i needed more details to give a constructive response. after half a day my bosses boss calls me into their office, closes the door, looks me in the eyes and says "Rod. not Rob. Sorry about that"...

it's the little things that make a difference...

do you know what the answer is to my question about what happens next.

a shin splint. i suspect. either that, or a crazy hairline fracture.

either way, i'm not going to be doing any heavy exercise for some time.

it might be a little while before this is updated again. oops.

running's not always like this. promise.

first moderate activity today. carried a box of groceries around 1km. no odd sensations in my left leg, but the foot strike impact was minimal.
conveniently my tibial stress injury coincided with a cold/flu so after two weeks my body isn't missing the exercise. if i'd been otherwise healthy I think this hiatus would have made me edgy. between this and the onset of Autumn i've given my body a nice rest. my wife has returned to the gym after an absence of some months so i've some motivation to recover and work out with her. can't wait.

Only activities have been carrying shopping home and a bit of moderate pace walking.
I've taken the plunge and have ordered a pair of replacement running shoes from the US.
The price, including shipping, should be around half of what I would pay in Australia for the same shoes.

If I get the size right...
