Today I am supposed to rest on the run and I did. It was frustrating as I really fancied going out but have to follow the plan and instructions from my physio. Instead I repotted a plant cleaned the apartment, washing and changed 2 tyres and fixed the two blown tubes from yesterday. All in all very productive.
This evening I cycled to swimming. March is all about building speed now and I felt it- got lactic acid in nearly every set but I feel good now. I lasted longer than a lot of the other guys – my endurance is certainly up there and all those extra sessions are paying dividends now.
I’m looking forward to this week, training, work and watching a new series I’ve downloaded – sons of anarchy. I was really in “24”, house of cards and breaking bad. I asked on Facebook what I should watch next and I had an overwhelming response to sons of anarchy and dexter. So I’ll be watching those to relax in the evenings.
Happy training everyone and anymore suggestions on a good series to watch please feel free to comment.
Friday night after strength training I made a huge pan of spaghetti with an arribiatta sauce with chickpeas and chicken breast. I was fuelling up for a fast 100km Saturday cycle and brick.
Got up early had my porridge and was the first person to arrive at the meeting point in Richmond park. 16km into the ride we were cruising at 40km/hr my rear tyre blew out loudly and aggressively. Pulled over and fitted another tube and that blew out when pumping up- the tyre had split right open now so I used a gel pack on inside of tire and fitted another tube and turned back home. I was gutted.
Got back and decided to brick the 36km cycle anyway with a 10km run. Run was great but I’ve been shattered all day from it and I’m aching which is strange for me. Maybe I’m coming down with something???
Right off to sleep now as got club running in the morning and swimming in the evening.
Oh and I signed up for a 200km group ride to oxford and back next week. Should be good and get me used to the distance for ironman.
Happy day peoples except now I need 2 new tyres – but hey I covered over 2000km on the last set!!
