25/01/2010

Commute:
Legs were pretty flat today, and my calves were just lumps of painful flesh hanging onto the backs of my shins.

D: 29.7km
A: 245m

Massage:
I went and visited Andy Naylor, and while I wont call him a nice caring bloke, I didn't once feel the need to ask for a precautionary sick bucket, despite having some "residual soreness".

It seems that despite morning and night stretching of my hip flexors, I'm holding a heap of tension in my left iliacus. The remedy? Jamming my finger/thumbs in under my hip bone and wiggling them about. Enthusiasm for the remedy? No comment.

I've booked in a couple more visits for the upcoming weeks and that should hopefully get my body on the right track. Worst case scenario he's a font of bicycle (riding) knowledge and thus good to talk to, even if he is a Saints supporter.

PMPW: 91kg
