  • Madeline Simon (MS) - Recovery takes time

    I keep forgetting, my recovery time after weekends away or doing things that are not the norm use more energy i.e. it takes 3 weeks to recover and not 2 weeks any more. So things were not as sparky as I hoped. I am doing a little more but there is room for improvement! One...

    After 3 weeks of pretty much static training, I have started up again. I started to increase my training now after the injury problems of 2 weeks ago and getting no problems now.  POWERbreathe work is back on too and I am hoping to see some improvement again soon...

  • POWERbreathe Trial – Melanie Ryding Week 9: Ramping up the Intensity

    Still recovering from the head injury, so I feel all behind with my preparations. Still, nothing I can do about that i guess. The problem I currently have is related to change of pace and oxygen demand, so starting and stopping is hard work. I have upped the intensity...
