Went to a runner friendly GP yesterday and my physio today and both suspect a stress fracture. I'm not getting the scans done though as I am trying to hang on to my $200 for Korea where I'm going in 2 weeks time.

All signs are pointing to a stressie though which means an enforced lay off of about 6 - 8 weeks. Hopefully towards New Years I can start doing some hiking in the mountains around Korea. I was really hoping to do some running in the snow over there, but anyway - I'll probably be inside a gym on the bike or rower instead.

Shit way to end the year, just need to keep the fitness up and not get too fat!

7km Aerobic Base Run

Avg Pace: 5:05min/km

Had ART and dry needling done on my calves and anterior tibialis. Still, however, feeling tight and bad. Mostly on the left but some on the right too. Usual frustration. Bloody humid today too coupled with a bit of headache and sore throat means I'm not a happy runner today.

40km Cycle

Avg Speed: 22.8km/h

Substituted ride for run. Longest ride I think I have ever done in one go. Good circuit going along both the Parramatta River and the Cooks River. So a fair proportion is on bike paths. Good morning.

5km Recovery Run

Avg Pace: 5:33min/km

Left shin feel way, way better. Right shin today decided to be sore. No energy after waking up at 5am and being on my feet most of the day. First run since Saturday. Will try again tomorrow I guess...
