Glad to hear you foot is doing better. I know you are ready to get back on the road.

Thanks! Mm, I managed a bit of a run today trying to catch up with some silly people. Also some BW exercises, Pilates and a Portuguese podcast about cycling.

My daughter, @Flyer19 has been even busier, running with Mummy for a long, long way and pausing to make a video for the Assassin challenge about how to get started with pullups - if anyone's interested, it's here:

Glad to hear that while your foot isn't 100%, that it is still doing better

Thanks!

Cool video.  Sounds like the wife and daughter are holding down the fort quite well :)

Today was 161 pushups (aiming for 175 but didn't make it...) interspersed with squats, followed by a long cycle ride to the physio. It was beautiful - cold and clear with low-lying fog on the river. Here is the view from the top of the hill looking down to the Thames

How great is that, eh? It made me late for the appointment though becaue I stood and gaped at it for a bit.

 

I've been icing my foot (for fans of the Great British Bake-off, I should point out this means "I put ice on it") and it is a lot better but still a long way to go. Listening to the audio version of Born to Run he mentions Plantar F as "the vampire bite of foot injuries" and I'm hoping it clears up asoon because the way he describes it sounds a bit grim.

What was the family movie?

Awesome photo too!

Thanks. It was Ace Ventura, Pet Detective. Jim Carrey's performance doesn't seem as funny as it did in the 90s but the 8-year-olds enjoyed it!

I've been feling like a pitiful wreck of a man today but decided to go to circuits at the rowing club anyway because - well, bollocks to all this wallowing in self pity. I don't know that the physio would have approved but it has made me feel a lot more positive about stuff. It was very hard and I've lost a lot of fitness, what with all the running I've missed but I didn't die and I even managed a couple of show-offy bits (clapping pushups on the first circuit - that's asking for trouble!)

Anyway, now to roll this thing out while I wait for my chicken to be ready...

Today's family film night: Star Wars. This was @Flyer19 's first time watching it and an important milestone in her nerducation. Funny how many scenes and lines she recognised from references in other movies, sitcoms, etc.

... And today we remembered that Peter Cushing - Tarkin from Star Wars - starred as The Doctor in the Dr Who movies with Bernard "Right Said Fred" Cribbins so now I am the keeper of ancient wisdoms.

Oh and I um... Let's see... Ate well, stretched well, used the foot and did a workout consisting of 145 pushups and a lot of pilates exercises for core stability.

Iced the foot, not used. Well, I used it too, but that's hardly news.

It's still grumbling on. I'll be at the physio again tomorrow. *sigh*

On a brighter note, Mrs 18ck is in a team for Jantastic and apparently they are currently number one in the country at the moment. Boasty husband time.

I really enjoyed cycling home from the physio today. I usually go on a horribly crowded road and feel very insecure around all the car-driving fools but today I worked out a route that took me to the Thames towpath and I went home that way instead, splashing through muddy puddles in the rain. Much less stress, much more mess

Still not happy about the foot situation but still not giving up on that marathon.
