Two training sessions a day 6 days a week is really hard to fit in with work continuing to dominate 12 hours a day (2 hours commuting, 10 hours or more in the office). Sometimes I shift a session (e.g. I did Thursday's swim on Wednesday as I had a scheduled session with coachJez to check up on technique) and sometimes I miss a core strength session but I'm packing in way more hours than previously and they're more quality hours than before:-
|Red = missed, significantly too short or significantly too long; Yellow = appreciably too short or too long; Green = on target; Grey = unscheduled; pale colours are in the future.|
|Pointy! (950m climbing in total)|
|Looks like a scribble because there are 6 traces - 6 reps - fun!|
More wins today - drinking while cycling uphill, eating 4 High5 gels and a Clif bar in the saddle. Very positive stuff. Feeling good. Looking forward in a couple of weeks to a good long chat about the first race itself - race plan and strategy, tactics, putting it all together, nutrition and hydration etc. I'm actually starting to get excited about UK 70.3 though still nigh on terrified of UK IM a few weeks after that.
