I believe yesterday was the first significant signs of improvement after all the physio sessions and hours of core work. I excitedly rolled up to see Mel today with good news of a new personal best at Thames Turbo Race 3.
I’ve been racing Thames Turbo races since 2003 and my previous best was 59.41. This was set on a faster course as since then the transition has moved to the grass. They reckon it’s worth 40-50s. So I reckon I was nearly 1m40s faster than I’ve ever gone before.
The main area of improvement has been on the bike which feels much more powerful at the moment. I believe this is down to my improved core strength.Mel worked on my upper body today. We both still believe that there’s swim improvements to be had if I sort out my shoulders. We’re going to do an upper body analysis with the other Kinesis physios in the next month or so.
In the meantime I’ll continue to work on the core exercises with the gym ball and the arm exercises Mel gave me last week.
