Taper – Microcycle 1 – Wednesday
4 mile walk
2 hour bike ride
3 x 15 Heel Drops
Planks x 8 total minutes
Breakdown / Achilles Tendonitus Saga Cont.
Today would have been a 10 mile run, but with the tendon repair and recovery under way, we get the above.
The walk is just so I’m keeping natural movement going. I’ll do laps close by, so if it starts to hurt worse I’ll just stop and head in.
And, if it feels good at mile 3, I might even run the last mile.
The bike ride is to keep my cardio up. I won’t push too hard. I try to keep it at the same intensity that I would if I was running.
Heel drops we talked about yesterday. Though, I was able to add 25lbs. I’m going to keep doing everyday weighted for now despite what I said. The weight felt like it was actually doing something, so I’m going to just play it day by day.
I’m going to permanently add these to running ramp ups. I think they are going to help with more then just my tendon long-term. Mostlywith calf recovery and flexibility, a few days in and I can already see it in my un-injured leg.
I still feel pain walking around, and stairs blow, but I think I’m on the right track overall.
And, I’ve decided I really like intermittent fasting. Maybe not 20 hours trading and 4 eating like I’m doing now for autophagy. But, I think 18 off and 6 on would be perfect.
It’s just really, really, really uncomfortable packing in 3000 calories of meat, fruits, and vegetables into 4 hours. I feel like I’m just at a trough and just shoveling food down.
6 hours would let me just have two big meals. It’s funny, because you might think that the hardest part is not eating, but to be honest, I barely notice until an hour or so until I eat.
I do feel way more awake and focused. Most importantly, I had five Dinesh issues recently from traveling and rapid changes in environment and this seems to rapidly be cleaning that up.
Day 3 of all out recovery mode, here we come.
