I trained all of three times on my holidays; A 2.5 hour bike ride, a 1:45 leisurely MTB ride and a 5 hour -mostly leisurely- ride with the exception of a 57 minute all out effort up Alpe d’Huez.
Last night I ran for the first time in three weeks. I managed 8×400 on 2:00 (1:18,1:19,1:19,1:19,1:19,1:20,1:19,1:18)
Feel crippled today!
I’m travelling tomorrow and have a million things to do today so my training for the week is most likely complete.
The week was as follows:
Tuesday: Fast short run. 34minutes average of 4:08/km
Wednesday: On the indoor trainer. 5x4min on, 4 min off
Thursday: MTB – 43 minutes. I felt very tired during this. Maybe a little dehydrated.
Friday: Tough run at the track. 6×1200 yards in 3:58, 3;56, 3;56, 3;56, 3;54, 3;52. Average of 3:35/km
Today I feel pretty fresh despite the fact that the interval session was one of the most difficult sessions I have ever done. It was also very hot – 25 C in the shade and the interval session was ran in direct sunlight…
While post title said I’m finished for the week I’ll see if I can squeeze in something else. I have a 5km race on Wednesday.
4 training sessions in one week; not great!
Monday: Cycling: 74,9km
Wednesday: Swim -outdoor. 1,4km
Friday: Run – Race – 8,9km 33:23
Sunday: Cycle 74,9km
