Pretty ouchy this morning but I don't think that's necessarily a sign that I'm doomed. Gentle stretching, keeping moving...

Yeah, it remained ouchy all yesterday but calmed down for a while when I stretched it. Icing it in the evening helped a lot and it's fine today, thank goodness.

So you baulked at the new Mizunos but did you get any others?

Yep, bright scarlet Brooks. I'm hoping the illusion that my feet are glowing red hot from friction will make up for my slow, plodding place.

I'm particular about my shoes, too. And white on running shoes is a bad idea.

Mm, I'm with you there. I'm not usually very fussy, but these shoes... Oh my god!

And to make matters worse, the guy in the shop thought the designs were by "some Danish artist" but Mondrian was Dutch.

I used a gel pack to ice my foot instead of a bottle. It's miles better! My foot was fine when I woke up. It didn't last past lunch time, unfortunately but I will definitely use it from now on.

Today I went to the rowing club after work and did 4k on the ergo and (very unusually for me) Some weights. Then 162 pushups in only 5 sets including a set of 50. This training montage is happening!

Physio tomorrow. Hope he doesn't tell me off for hammering the foot too hard!

They were easy weights. Maybe weights are something I should learn about. Oh, who am I kidding, I'll drop them on my head and put myself in a wheelchair. That's what I'm like.

Haha.  I would "like this",  but somehow that sounds inappropriate.

So today was a mahoossive bike ride to the physio then back along the river. Then in the evening I did some stretches and pilates core moves.

Oh and I went to the dentist too. I don't know if anyone remembers in my 3rd or 4th challenge I decided to embed a habit of flossing? Well I'm still doing it and it's paying off!

Today was circuits at the rowing club. I ran there at threshold pace (not as impressive as it sounds - it only took 5 minutes!) and pushed hard on all the exercises. Weirdly I'm finding my stomach muscles have declined more than the rest of me. I was collapsing during v-sits and various crunch type exercises but I managed a good lot of push-ups - 103 in three sets, totaling 150 seconds, even with other exercises in between. I ran back home too, like a crazy fool, but I was just so happy that my foot wasn't hurting at all.

It's very grumbly now though. I've slapped an ice pack on it and I've got my fingers crossed for the morning.

Ummm... I take it the foot is still unhappy with you. Bummer.

Yep. It's a major annoyance because yesterday everything felt so great and I thought maybe that's the end if it. But today... Oh...

Wait, I think I see a flaw in this plan...

Taking it easy today, putting up shelves, converting our old boiler cupboard into a storage area, then did some light walking, saving it for tomorrow when I'm planning a slightly heavier session. I've had my first feelings of maybe I should just give up on the marathon. I don't want to but maybe I should just set my sights on one that's a bit further away.

How is your foot going?

Well, not terrible today but I'm less confident that happy state will last.

As you'll know of you've been following my daughter's challenge thread ( ) , I've mostly just been trying to keep up with her today as she dashed about doing Assassins stuff. Unlike her limit old dad, she has managed to run the dull distance of the race she is training for - a mile - and she has had an action-packed day.

I managed to run the mile too, at a slow pace and with no complaints from the foot so far, but we'll see.

End of challenge report

1 Get my foot sorted out

No shortage of effort on thus one and progress gas been made but it's stubbornly remaining stuff and sore

2 Get back to Marathon training

I've started but at this point, have I got time to finish? Well, the short answer is no!

3 Cross training - one "thing" per day

I started out badly but once the foot improved I've got back into it

4 Portuguese - obviously

Phail

5 Shed the pounds I put on over Christmas

Inexcusable lack of measuring but yeah, I think I have room around the waistband so in spite of the lack of exercise I'm calling this a win

Subgoals

Try something new - Dry slope skiing, probably

No

Training with @Flyer19

Yes, lots

Handstands

Not so much, no.

Hem, I don't seem to have allocated points to these, do I?

Let's call it

1: 2 WIS for being sensible and taking care of the injury

2: 1 STA only

3: 2 STR - my pushups are really coming along!

4: nuffink

5: 1 CON 1 CHA

7 out of a possible 15 reflects the effort put in, I think.

OK, a second bad challenge. I need to make up a lot of ground in the next one.
