Monday 27th of September 2010

Im back..I have been doing a few runs every week (2 or 3 10 k runs a week lets say). Today I entered Challenge UK and have set my self a new target of 10 or less hours! yep, almost impossible but thats what I thought about swimming 3,8, cycling 180 and running 42.2! Next step is to avoid divorce and then crack on with training...again. :)
Back soon, just need to do some work inbetween organising my athletic future ;)

Sunday the 5th of September 2010

Its now Sunday and I am feeling a little sorry for my self. I did "The Vitruvien" triathlon which is a half ironman yesterday and it was damn hard! My legs felt week after about 1 km on the bike! not a nice feeling. I had done 1 training run which was a 22k effort since the Ironman on August 15th. I thought I would be mostly recovered by then but I don't think I was. The swim started very badly and I had to stop and catch my breath, I then caught the group I was with and ended with a 33 minute swim so not too bad but I was a little disappointed. It went down hill from there and I just felt tired. Anyway, it was still a fun day and it was a really great event. I am very pleased I did it but will now just chill out and then start working on my training again. I will try to work on my power and speed now over the winter and see how I can improve on my 11 hour IM next year. Ill have to have a look for an event!

Will post pics when they come out.
