Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: Today at 12:55

So due to the weather forecast the club rides were cancelled, so I turboed. 2 x 1 hour DVD, first one a race then an hour of climbing, my legs felt thoroughly worked out by the end. Hope this makes up for not doing anything for 3 days.

Thanks for all the (()) I needed them.

My mojo went missing today a few hours before the snow arrived, not sure if it knew what was coming. So today was a rest day, think the body needed it as FiL situation is getting bad again.

Enjoy your meal SC.

We had a dusting of snow earlier.

We had a butterfly hibernate in a walk in cupboard for the winter when I was a child. It survived OK, did a not very often wing flap but stayed in place for 3 months. We let it out when the first flowers were out on a sunny warm day.

I still have my Christmas cheese.

Bins are out ready for the morning, although food waste one goes out when I go to catch the train as the foxes have learnt how to open the fox proof lid.

FiL's condition seems to fluctuate quite markedly, so the roller coaster continues after thinking last week that things could be settling down.

Hello everyone and welcome Minni, I have just read back after a busy weekend.

Saturday was a rest day from training but not a rest day if you know what I mean.

Today did my long bike ride and rode from home to the club and just made it in time to join the slow group going out for 21 miles. It was cold but I was snug apart from my feet which is normal for me. After stopping for hot chocolate and cake the ride home was a bit more hard work and I decided to go the 2nd most direct route which involves a long but manageable hill, I had to get into granny ring and spent 10 minutes climbing to the top. At least the last bit was downhill home.

Tired and sore this afternoon, but to be expected as that was the furthest I had ridden this year.

Spin session tonight but unable to keep the rpm at or above 90 and the HR in Z1, so settled for an average rpm of 83 whilst keeping the HR in the right zone. I blame altering the resistance on the turbo, anyhow it gives me something to work on.

I did my 30 min turbo session tonight, I put the resistance up slightly so the Garmin only recorded 10mph for speed but kept it in the correct HR range, but the run bit afterwards did not happen, oops must start running soon.
