My Knee is good but not 100% and trying to push now and be ready in two months time may just be the wrong thing to do, thinking long term.
Since injuring me knee in November I haven't done any long bike rides or any long runs and currently I can only manage about 1 hour running before my knee feels "tender" and as many Ironman triathletes will tell you, you need to put in the long hours in training to survive on race day.
Obviously I am very disappointed but I think it is the right decision thinking long term. I am going to do to some IM70.3's for now and will take on the Ironman challenge again in 2012.
Today on my bike training saw these three guys playing in the main road with their man made "draadkarre" (cars build from wire), don't see it that often these days. I was doing 4x15min intervals and chose the Zaaihoek road, a not so busy 10km road outside Witbank which ends with a T junction.
Bit boring doing the loop a few times but it's quite good for intervals with no major hills and traffic.
Luckily my intervals were done when I had to stop for the train on my way back home.
Yesterday we went to the venue where by sister is thinking of getting married on the 7th of May. After talking to the venue coordinator and looking at different options she decided on this venue. I must say it is quite nice and they have accommodation available at the venue, so no driving home after the wedding.
Me, my Mother and Sister listening to all the ideas the lady from the venue is proposing.
