Daily Note

AM: Really got my moneys worth in the training room this morning. Heated the achilles and then attempted the alter G, which was super fun!!, but unfortunately hurt just as much as normal running so got off after about 6 minutes. Then put my suit on and got on the underwater treadmill (logging this as aqua jog cause I didn't know what to call it), and that hurt a lot less (still could feel the achilles, but not nearly as bad as the alter g or running). Didn't feel like I was getting much of an aerobic benefit, but my head was pretty hot by the end so maybe that's something. Still nice to do the motion of running though, and I got to know Ian the student trainer who had to watch me do it for the 25 minutes. PM: Bike workout with Gabby!! Decided I really like doing spin bike workouts. Did 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 hard with 1 min easy in between, then 4, 3, 2, 1 hard with 90 second easy in between, and then 3, 2, 1, hard with 2 min easy in between. Time flew by and really enjoyed this workout. Had a lot of fun timing the real workout after. Talked to Jonathan, and unfortunately since the achilles is not healing as fast as we had hoped, I am supposed to take it easier/shorter on the bike and have to go back in the boot. He also thought that it was unlikely I will get to race in indoor at all, which is disappointing. Really want to be running again.
