what have I done.
I have only ever done 1 ironman distace race before. This year I decided to employ a coach to see what I could achieve. In the past I have relyed on other peoples training to get me there. Having had an achillies heel injury for the past 6months training will start slow. I have a 15hrs 15mins goal to beat from last time. Its the same race so easier to compare times.

first run.

ok. so i have not run for 6 months due to an achillies heel problem. after a couple of weeks walking in my training. today was the first day to include running. yes was nervous. just didn't want injury to go back wards. ran on grass. seems ok. no pain and payed particular attention to stretching properly. something that i don't normally do. i guess tomorrow will show if things ok.
hmmmmm, so a 4 day week end then back to 6am swim. which for me is a 35min bike ride to the pool. so a 5:1o am get up. joy!!!

Hellooo Smartiepete! Good job on your run and fingers crossed that the Achilles will behave from now on.

Hey there Pete. Glad to hear you've started running again - hope the Achilles holds up :)
