• Debbie Tyler – #thetrilifereporter – month 2

    Debbie Tyler month 2My knee injury continues to cause problems with my running, so at the moment I’m just about back to running for 5 minutes, walking for 5 minutes for a total of 20 minutes every couple of days.

    I have, however, managed to complete a 170km bike ride over 4 days on rough terrain. It’s called the Central Otago Rail Trail in New Zealand, and it covers the route of the old gold rush train from years ago. My knee behaved on that, so I was happy to still be getting some exercise.

    I’ve also managed to complete a couple of decent hikes out here – one was two hours long, the other was just over 3 hours.

    I’m starting some sea swimming next Monday as we go into April, and will continue to build up some strength in my knees.

    My aim for the next few weeks is to build on the run/walk so that I’m able to gently jog round the Singapore Parkrun course on 16th April before I fly back to the UK a few days later.

    I have East Grinstead sprint triathlon on 8th May, so once home I’ll be in the pool every day getting more swimming practice.
