Week 32 – Summary.
- Rest, recovery and getting ready for the next training block
- I have a training plan focussed on the 200 & 400m with competition at the Oceania Masters Challenge in Mackay to be held early June 9 – 11
Resting HR (week avg): 56
Weight: 91.0 kg (+1.0)
Sleep: > 6.5 hours on 3 of 7 nights
Track sessions: 1 / 0
Massage. Tight in the calves and hip flexors. Hamstrings and quads in good shape.
Visited an exercise physiologist. My goal is to make myself more resistant to injury rather than radical transformation.
Went through a few tests of standing, walking and balancing. A number of things were noticed. Feet not doing a lot, but especially the left. Hips are very tight and very little internal rotation. I stand and walk like I am protecting my left shoulder (which is likely related to a broken left collarbone at 17 that set in a strange way).
The process for now is a series of foot strengthening exercises and a number of movements to get some mobility in my hips.
Technically a day early to return to training, but it has been a week of bad eating and the legs have gone from sore to fidgety, so did a very light session.
Adcock. Track very soft. Lane 4 mostly usable.
Tempo. Deliberately slower. 3 * 200. 37.1, 38.5😨, 37.8.
