Ay-up

I've just started my base training (Base 1)

During base 1, I am concentrating on keeping in zones 1 & 2 and on getting my key sessions in each week – they are:

Long Swim, Long Run, Long Bike and weights

My long swim I am doing as a continuous effort (front crawl) starting at 2500m and adding 200-250m each week

My long runs, in base 1, are been done as 5min run/1min walk an will be 2-3hrs long

Long Bike, I have more of a problem with – in as much as it is too hilly round here to keep my HR down – but I’m starting at 3hrs and building up

Weights I aim to try and do twice per week (full body) to build some strength

Each week I’ll do extra sessions on top of the key, but aim not to miss the key

On top of all that I have a TI swimming workshop coming up at the end of this month and a 2 day hike (8-10hrs per day) in the lakes

So I’m pleased with my start
