@ELab @Coach_Ian so i am taking it easy and listening to the body and so long as i am cautious a bike or run seems to be without side discomfort. I did a fortnight of swimming to start and that just gave me epic sinus issues so screw that i will do 2 many 3 swims a week now max and sinus rinse after to prevent this happening again. But two bad head colds in two weeks isnt fun so dont want the pool giving me more. *WHAT DO THEY PUT IN POOL WATER!!!
My fitness is the lowest it has been in about 5 or 6 years, even the year i started triathlon it was better at the start!! but hey nothing like a challenge to get back. i am ok doing hour bike maybe more, i am almost up to 10km comfortably running in just three runs and the pace improves each run while in low recovery HR (6.42 to 6.15 to 6.09 today with some hills in there to give my legs a bit of work (cant run without a hill here)… its mad to watch i guess i have a lot to be grateful for that i can improve quickly.
My TSS on my TP is normally set to run TSS or powerTSS which when fit is more accurate for me i assume? but with less fitness am i better setting it to HR TSS so that i am better tracking the TSS jump each week to prevent fatigue.
Body is still tired. that med i had to take methotrexate is used for arthritis also and i feel like i have damn arthritis from it and epic fatigue but i guess that just takes time for the cell cycles to recover from the folate depletion and cell replication stall. patience and kindness!
and if anyone else out there is returning to fitness… i am here with you! its frustrating but its also a gift to get to train. many cannot
