It seems that I have regressed to weekly updates; not a disaster as far as readership is concerned but that was not the purpose of this site. The purpose was to write down feelings and thoughts after training with the hope that externalising my actions would prevent me from being injured. So far it has worked but now I am finding less and less time to write because I am busy at work, the girls are getting bigger and I’m training harder – and a little more too. So more stress and less relief!
This week was a good one.
The key sessions were my ‘long’ bike during which I averaged 35km/h for the four churches loop. It’s not as good as it sounds as I had the help of another rider – I reckon that adds 2-3 km/h to the average. It was still a good session.
I had two good runs this week.
Firstly a 3x 2,1km interval set on 2 mins rest. This was made harder by the fact that I did 56 minutes on the trainer doing a big-gear set. I was tired starting and totally done by the time I got home.
My second good run set was just last night: 8x800m on 4:00 the splits were 2:52, 2:52, 2:50, 2:50, 2:49, 2:58, 2:50, 2:44. Very slow and not-so-easy jog home.
Today I swam 42 minutes and attempted a 5×5:2 trainer set. Didn’t go so well. Low HR and high RPE… I could be getting tired.
Over and out!
