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
30 mins TT in new pirate shorts that A fit and B are comfy
Finally sussed how to get the resistence to work/stay on and it makes a difference
30mins run done
so all fink runs ticked off and 1 bike, means I have to do my remaining 2 bikes in 1 (75mins not hard to do!) and 2 swims (seeing as he assumes 30mins (hahahaha) then 1hr should be cool!)
run HR is improving
found someones wallet whilst out so off to find the nearest cop shop. No idea where it is!
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...
keep hitting those swims seren......If you are swim fit, then you might not be that much quicker but you will get out the swim without it taking much out of you, (ie you essentially cruise around it)You will see the difference in the marathon as you have not knacked your self out in the first 90 mins.... so you can keep running 90 minutes longer......
you never know... you might start enjoying it too!
2km in teh pool done at masters, so different session to Finks.
Good God it was hard work! I think I need to swim far more often. I think the last proper swimming I did was November.
Now I cant decide if I want to eat sleep or die.
Please tell me it gets easier (quicker would also be nice)
Parkrun in the morning, then long bike and long run Sunday
long bike? done managed 40 on the turbo. third bike session of the year !
needs to be double that and the quality is in need of focus.
might have to hit the road to get the legs working !
