Less than 14 weeks to go…
… before Lanzarote.
How do I feel? Generally pretty good. I nearly always ache these days though. Sunday’s and Monday’s are probably the achiest days of the week but then again every day aches.
In terms of swim, bike, run?
- Swim: no worries. I am swimming more than ever.
- Run: I can do it. I am running more than ever too. The “average” of my runs is more than an hour (compared with 40 or so minutes last year). Also, all my running is being done at a much faster pace this year. However, most of it at the moment is on a treadmill. But that is getting me stronger in the mind.
- Bike: This is the issue. I don’t feel I am good enough yet. My legs just aren’t as strong as my heart and lungs at the moment. Also, I am not hugely comfortable in the aero position at the end of my long rides. But there is a lot of time to go yet.
Yesterday I did a 4 hour ride. I didn’t run straight after but I did a 50 min run later in the afternoon. This was cross country, in the rain and mud, with the dogs. They loved it! They slept a lot afterwards!
