Maybe you should lead in the tris you enter while doing the backstroke...that way you can keep a dry face.

:lol: yeah that would be painful doing a flip turns with back.
You lose seconds if you're not doing flip turns.

You can do it in an open pool and just swim the perimeter until you hit your head

Yeah I would be everyone's worse enemy smashing into people :lol:
I don't think you can catch a draft with back. And you're kicking more. So I would run out of energy with the bike.
Pros and cons ! I could use the huge goggles and a snorkel !

You won't look bad if you're in front of everyone.

I don't know quite what to say about the above dialogue... :)

We went to yoga for runners tonight. We actually really enjoyed it. Everyone was really friendly and it was very relaxed. So today I will have done an hour of physiotherapist-ordered stretches, and an hour of yoga.

Aw just pretend that Potter and I are in your living room and you just step out to grab us some food. And you came in the middle of our conversation :P

What are you stretches like?

Too bad it's not true! :(

Things like lunges and kegels and other stuff that works/stretches my hip flexors and strengthens my core. I've also added in a few of my own, like prolonged upward facing dogs and planks (holding for a couple minutes) and bicycle crunches. Oh and I have to stand on my right leg a lot. I usually read or watch TV while I'm doing that.

This morning I did my stretches and then ran for 45 minutes, about 7.5km. I'm incorporating some new stuff into my running form so I'm slowing it down a bit while I get used to it. Also, road conditions weren't great today. But it was nice and sunny, and virtually no wind. :D

Thanks. :) It's one of my "in the spirit of the peta contest" photos that I took of myself.

Is that good? :oops:

I haven't really updated this for a bit because my heart hasn't been in it. I'm so far from where I was at that it is kind of depressing to report on it. However, I should log 40 km this week which puts me a bit closer to where I want to be (sort of... I want to be at 60-70 km/week). Last week I only did 24 km because of the "rules" I am following from the physiotherapist. Now I've built up to hour-long+ runs so I'm feeling a bit more optimistic about everything. I won't get to do the first race I had planned, but I should be ready to kick some ass on an early half marathon a few weeks later.

I also haven't had much time for weights, since I now spend an hour a day doing stretching and strengthening exercises. I'm doing more ab and core work, including 120 bicycle crunches a day, plus holding planks, and plank push ups. We went for our second yoga for runners class and it's a pretty good work out too. I was sore almost the entire week after my first session! This second one I was ok after. :)

Its nice to see you're at least getting decent mileage in. It could be better but thats the case for everyone. Just give it time and things will come along just fine.

Thanks Jeremy. :) Yeah I'm trying to be patient, and really listen to my body.

I went to physio yesterday and she says I'm doing really great, and that I'll more than likely be ready to start the speed work group in February. I'm going back once right before it starts to be sure, but as long as I keep doing my strengthening and stretching exercises and be careful when running, it should be a go!

So yesterday I did a light upper body workout in the morning, my stretches/strengthening exercises twice (about an hour and 15 total) and I went for a 6.5k run.
