I was a little snotty after this morning's swim. But I didn't get like that last week.
Perhaps down to early season hayfever type stuff?
Life is a rollercoaster.........
Yesterday = rest day = I cant do this, I will never get round Outlaw
Today = monster brick = 16 miles hard on bike followed by 11 miles 'run' at race pace = bring it on!
I think I need to start training my brain as well
Good training and great posts peeps, keep it up.
day off work today so decided to make the most of it............ 83 miles on the bike followed by a 5 mile shuffle
I am well and truly fecked
A cooler day here, but it made for a great 60 mile cycle out along the coast and then back home over the inland mountain. I stopped in Ballycastle, a small seaside town for an ice cream, and then took the mountain on. I felt great and was considering another 20 mile loop of the seaside, but time was running short and I had to get home to walk my dogs.
I had a 2 hour T1 to have a bath, walk the dogs and then got out for a 5 mile trail run with a couple of friends.
A great day's training for me.
I'm listening M..ouse.
My (very green) reasoning:
I had a couple of weeks off work and thought about building a sound base. I don't want to overtrain at this early stage and either peak way too early or end up with an injury. But I also want to get to the 80-90 milers so that I can tackle the upcoming 100 mile sportives without it being too much of a jump up.
I also had previously been wearing a pair of cycling shorts with padding as thick as a pillow and wanted to try out my new 2xu shorts with next to no padding. I was delighted with the result, as well as the small (up)adjustment that I made to my bar height.
Now my 2 week holiday is nearly over, I wanted to consolidate the step up. That would see me take on no new distance, just working within what I'd achieved.
That's the musings of an idiot who still believes that if I haven't exhausted myself then I've been slacking, although this time I've loosly followed a program and tried to remain sensible.
Thanks for the advice M..ouse, I have taken it on board and I'll drop back for a week or two. Actually I do feel I need to.
That makes it sound like you have a digestion problem.
STIL, not you. He said the body thrives on turbulance. It made me think of....
....oh never mind.
