Long days and fatigue

Day 132 Swim 45 minutes - 2300m, Run 77 minutes - 15km

Total On Week 442 minutes

I needed to muster up a bit more effort for today's workout due to some fatigue. Both workouts occurred after work. First was the swim 400m technical warm-up, then I attempted to do 5X300m on a 5 minute cycle without pull buoy and paddles and average under 4:30. It was not going to happen since the first one was 4:30, then 4:36, 4:42, 4:47 and expending all my effort did a 4:41 to finish.

After a mid workout banana and just enough time to change I headed to the treadmill to do my first run on surface in a while. I did the first 9 miles of the Ironman St George course at a reasonable pace although slower the effort was higher than I would like. Knee held up quite well but the real test will be tomorrow and whether or not the knee recovers fast.

I also needed to push off the disappointment that it is taking so long for my knee to recover despite how much I have backed off. I hope that I can get into the specialist soon to determine best course of action.
