After today I feel knackered and I am falling asleep writing this – so if he doesn’t make sense then you know why.
Got up early, went swimming and I was feeling strong. I did my 3x1067m or 3.2KM in 52mins. So I knocked a minute and a half off. I am now nearly on target for ironman distance in a hour – as of today at that pace it would be 61mins – so all is looking good on the swim front – he strength work in the gym is really helping. Plus the fact i have been Overdosing on swimming because I wasn’t able to run.
The gorgeous Richmond Park.
I then cycled at pace 28.5km/hr hilly 30km and then finished it with a 4km brick run. So really I did a little triathlon today haha. I then at an exhibition and meetings to got to in the City which went well – except I was hungry all day long. I raced back home so I could get to the gym and do a strength session before my tri club Turbo group session. As it was dry I cycled there on my TT bike – OMG I forgot how fast it is when you get the wheels turning. I was hitting over 60km/hr down the hill haha. Turbo was good but the coach mentioned that we are having a Pizza night after Turbo next week and well I couldn’t wait for the session to be over and go an eat. No one tells you that Ironman Training costs so much in food – all worth it though. I really believe that this strength training has massively increased my metabolism though. I weighed in today and lost a Kilo again since last week. It’s coming off too fast – but to be honest it’s great! Except today my newish suit is now too big for me and I need to put extra holes in my belts!!
Actually this is quite funny – I thought the other day that I could try shrinking some of my clothes on a really hot wash and dry – since in the past when i don’t want something to shrink – I shrink it! We’ll NO its didn’t work..typical hahah I will just have to go and buy some new clothes soon.
All in all a good day – very heavy doing all that though. Got a nice easy 8km run in the morning and then club training in the evening,.
happy Days and happy training.
