We got back from Bali during the week and I got back into some running on my regular runs Roo+Lake and Roo. The heel seems more capable of sustaining a run so I am optimistic things are heading in the right direction. Inevitably a few further hurdles are slowing me down. I have put on about 4 or 5kg currently about 69kg, for me 65kg is good racing weight and the  lowest I have been is about 62.5 in 2008 (I was flying). Hope to gradually pick up some mileage over the next few months and with that drop the weight and pick up the fitness though I'm hopeful the cycling will have kept me up to a certain level. I hope that I might be able to get back on the track before the end our season.
The treadmill session smashed my legs and may have contributed to some slight Achilles tendinitis in the right foot.
Also yesterday I swept down the stencilcrete around our pool area with chlorine in my bare feet (our stencilcrete is yellow but algae growth tends to turn it a dirty black - and using a water jet tends to blast off the stencilcrete ) this resulted in burn blisters on my feet, so today is a rest day and tomorrow will get back on the bike in the morning to further give the Achilles and feet a break.
During the week Nat turned 46 and I turned 51.We celebrated last night with friends and I got a 6 pack of Bintang as a gift (thanks Gazza!) to relive the Bali Hai memories.
