I’ve left writing this blog till lunch time Friday, mainly as this week has been a bit of a washout so far! I missed my long run Monday, did flexibility Tuesday, missed my swim Wednesday. So what to write about!…
It’s March, which means in the UK we are one month away from the start of the tri season. This winter training block has really gone quick and it’s crazy to think that winter training is coming to an end!
This week I’ve really been on a high, absolutely smashed this week and am really proud of myself how its gone! My long bike on the Sunday was great, it was the first bike ride I’ve done outside for about 5 months and I did the full 3 hour session. I completed this ride with a friend which always helps. The session was more a social ride for me rather than keeping to strict power/speed etc. To be honest my main goal for this session was to keep my bum on the saddle of a bike for 3 hours!
I’m currently doing a sports massage course and I’m learning a lot about muscles, joints, posture etc. The course tutors are brilliant and their knowledge is unreal! I’ve never really paid that much attention to the way I swim/bike/run and I’ve took more notice in the results, paces speed etc.
Its been a bit up and down this week! After spotting at the weekend Ray had put a couple of test sessions in I was like, “wow really” as I’ve been doing a lot of base building sessions in zone 2, so was a bit apprehensive how I’d do on these sessions. Well I had a mixed bag but I’m looking at the positives!
This week has been a bit hit and miss. I suppose every week is as an age group triathlete. Unfortunately we do this sport as a hobby, not as an income, so sometimes things just happen!
