…and feeling really good about myself.
That’s the power of exercise!
I’ve just been to the gym and done an hour on the spin bike. The first 20 mins was a warm up. Then I did 20x 1 min all out intervals with the resistance on the highest settings. After that I got off and did 10 mins on the treadmill at 17kph, with a short cool down.
Saturday’s long run went really well. I did the same route that I did a few times last year and was 6 mins quicker. Fantastic!
Sunday’s long bike didn’t go as well as I would have liked. I guess I as pretty tired going into it but I was slower than I would have liked. Also my neck still aches in the aero position. I think I will have a go at moving my aero bars up a little and see if that helps.
Lanzarote is less than 10 weeks away. It’s getting a bit too close for comfort. I am confident about the swim and the run. But still nervous about the bike and especially about my bike position. Stil, I’ve got a few weeks to crack it.
I am addicted to diet coke. Or at least that is how it seems some times! So today I have decided to go cold turkey.
I am guessing that I will get some headaches over the next week. In fact I can feel one coming now which is why I am writing this. I know that in a week I will feel fine. But until then it won’t be easy.
I am fed up feeling thirsty all the time and I am fed up spending silly money on diet coke when I could be spending it on chocolate!
I am on a train on the way home. I have had a good day and I think that is about to end. There has been a huge amount of snow at home and I’ve been told that I won’t be able to drive anywhere near to the house. One of my neighbours walked three miles home. Another has taken over three hours to go 15 miles or so. And she is still not back.
This morning’s swim was hard and honest. I did 4k (Inc 3x3x400m). The three fast 400m were on 6:12, 6:15 and 6:12. A new record. The 400m were done fast, 10s, moderate, 10s, easy, 1min. I felt shattered all morning.
I’ve got an all-out interval run this evening. Once I have done that I will have done all the sessions over the last 7 days exactly right! Another record.
Hi, this is a test to see if I can post remotely. I wonder if this will work? Also, will you be able to see the photo. I took it a couple of days ago and it shows lots of snow.
