Strength + 41km Cycle

Workout B:
(weight x sets x reps)

Squat: 55x3x5
Press: 30x3x5
Power Clean: 35x3x5
Sit ups: 2x25

Like the absolute old school simplicity of Rippetoe's Starting Strength - not going to be specific to running, but squats are the backbone and probably the best exercise for running strength. Am still working on getting the neuro connections back for the cleans. Have always been weak with the press.

about one hour after;

41km Cycle
Distance:41.31 km
Avg Speed:30.3 km/h
Elevation Gain:230 m
Rode over to Penrith to pick up a car and then drove back. Held a decent speed as its a pretty flat ride.

Went to a local osteopath who did some adjustments on my foot/ankle. Hopefully will reduce some pain. Seeing him again on Monday. Don't really want to have to pay $300 for an MRI.
