19th of November 2011
Wow, its been a busy few weeks. I now work from home much more but actually have less time for anything! I now have a dog (Vizsla) which will become my training buddy at some point but right now is more of a pain in the butt!
I am now fully booked with flights and hotel with my two racing mates for Ironman Lanzaroti! I have done much better training as of late and I feel in better shape already than what I was in for Challenge Henley.
This Tuesday I smashed my personal best for the half marathin by 6 minutes to 1 hour 30. I plan to get that down to 1:27 before I get to the Ironman. On Sunday morning I did a 10 mile TT ride and did it in 25 minutes so again I was pleased with that. Will try to get that down to 22 minutes (we will see!).
I am finding it hard to find the time to train but am making the most of short periods. I have done very few long training rides but am getting a lot more 1 hour sessions in. For now thats about all I can manage. Will try to up those to 1:30 as soon as I can.
My training is more interval based and more heart rate based which seems to work quite well for now.
I have also been looking into some great multi day adventure races! my top one at the moment is one that is done on Patagonia and looks like an epic, once in a lifetime, kind of experience! just trying to work out how I can convince my Mrs thats its a good idea!! thats probably going to be the hardest part of the whole thing. I already have a team mate sorted out but he is off in Afghanistan right now so I cant rely on him to convince my wife either! doh.
Anyway, im back in it after a little wobble post Challenge Henley and Im back in it to do much better!
