I had the route planned......but at the point where i could loop back i decided to go on....the weather and the fact i had met up with a gentleman rider I had never met before,
most rides mean i can loop longer or shorter.........or if its an out and back just keep on going out for longer......
It all makes sense now Seren
Did that 100+RPM session on the turbo for an hour this morning. It is officially the hardest session of the week. Mentally as well as physically. Unless I am doing something wrong - easy gear spinning at 100RPM solid for an hour. That is right yes?
Off trainig with lurgy the kids kindly passed on to me, not sick just very queasy so can't stomach much and feel week so trainig would be daft. Ho hum. Torn between womaning up or being sensible.
2nd swim of the week done and dusted.and it was a good one..... and yoga done..got to find running kit soon
I find myself wondering if any of the veterans have a post race/ next season plan.
I am thinking that having reached the goal and raced at week 30, their would be a maintenance load ( perhaps between race events ) and then a period between competitive seasons where you enter year 2/n a a much stronger base capability thus negating the benefits of dropping so much volume out of the fink plan ?
is this where we get into actual real person coaches and/or Friel and/or inspiration/invention whatnot ?
I took 12 months off triathlon after my first and got into ultras instead
I hope that's not catching seren
2nd swim of the week done
30 mins turbo at 100+ rpm. Wow, there was no way it was in z1, more like z4. Will check data later but it involved lots of sweat Perhaps I should have been in an even easier gear
easiest gear possible for me when trying that one................
i have just done my first run of the day.........splitting my long run today into two parts.not sure if i am ment to have a 2 and a half hour break half way through but thats the way its worked out in life
will do easier gear next time but have just worked out my heart rate zones and it was actually z2
I'm feeling very virtuous today. Only long run and long bike to go this week. I never have a problem fitting those in so this will be the first week that I've done everything I'm meant to
1:45 out on the bike. Mostly z2 but up into z3 by acciddent occasionally. The fog made it like riding it custard.
Will be aiming for longer on the weekend
Now off climbing for a bit of cross training
i'm going to hit over 13 hours in the first 4 days this week.looks like i can have an easy weekend
if i had known that finks just get youround programme..... only had the swims at 30 mins i would have followed that
as it is i have done 5 weeks of 2 hours............thats more swimming than i uisually do in a year
rest day for me.shame its looking quite nice out.still ... lots to do around the house and to do formy mother to kep me busy
got my friday run in at almost oh my god oclock. 45 mins that should have been 60, but gently does it after 4 weeks of idle/hardly any. big bike tomorrow. thats going to be a test (but hardly sufferlandria quality) 60mins turbo longest bike ive done for a while, but needs must when the race entries include your name at the top .
will be looking for a motivational calenday I can flag my training on so the family know what im up too and and when
Long run done. 10miles with a bit of z4 (I know, I know) but training for a half marathon as well and feel underprepared.
Rest tomorrow and long bike Sunday.
slokey Jioe..good pace there for low heart rate...
