Did my first off-road session of the year. While I’m nowhere near Richie’s league, I am far better than I was last year. I suppose fitness was a bigger issue than I assumed last year. While I’m not near my top form I certainly felt more than fit enough to handle the effort and having the reserves left to concentrate on what I’m doing… Can’t wait to get back out there again.
I started by runnig to work – the shortest possible route. It took only 17 minutes and I’m not sure if it counts.
I skipped lunchtime training -again- so I took a longer route home. 49 minutes in total and I must admit, I didn’t feel relaxed at all. I’m failry convinced that all the cycling stiffens up my running stride. My working assumption is that I just have to adapt to doing the two sports again and I’ll have my groove back.
Evening time came and I had the opportunity to train again; I couldn’t not take the oportunity and climbed abord the trainer and bashed out the following:
10min 5 x [1min mod-hard, 1 min easy]
10min 3 x [2 min big gear@ 64rpm, 1 min spinn @ 100 rpm] + 1 min easy
10min 1 x [spinning at 105-110 rpm w/ >120rpm for the last 10 seconds of each minute]
1 min rest
4 min Tabata interval
I think I should enter Stockholm Triathlon – just the sprint. I could do pretty well I think.
