Wednesday 18th of May 2011

Have had a tough coupe of week training.
This week was like this:
Monday - 21k tempo run
Tuesday - swim 2k, cycle 100k
Wednesday - run 10k fast
Thursday (planned) - 1 hour spin, 30 mins lifting
Friday - rest
Saturday/Sunday - 2 to 3 hour bike.

I need to add in some extra swims but I just dont have the time right now!
Only a few weeks until my first race of the year - Bala Middle Disntance (Half Ironman).
Im slowly getting used to having constant sore legs again! great stuff.

Tuesday 10th of May 2011

Hi again, its been a long time since my last post and thats mostly due to the fact that I have been crazy busy! I have been away for a 2 week holiday in Egypt and have been busy catching up with my work from that time.
I managed to get some decent cycling in before I went away and while away I managed to run 5 times which I can tell you was not fun due to the 35c temp! 10k runs was all I had in me.
Im now focused on my cycling and am trying to ratched up the mileage as fast as I can without damaging my self. The run training is ok and the plan is to do 1 long run a week and 2 short ones (21 to 25k long run, 10k short runs).
I am doing the Bala half ironman race on June 12th which will be a great training day towards the full ironman in Sep. I have signed up for another 50 miler in August but will see how my fitness is going before I do that.
My swim training has taken a back foot but I am going to try to go tomorrow if I can.
I always say it but im also goint to try to keep my blog updated as much as possible too!
