Just a quick blog post…
This month has been pretty damn good for training.
I did my first century on the bike. Which, incidentally, was also more mileage than I had ever done in a week. I checked that.. I had always fallen a bit short.
Ive also started to hit the pool. As I’ve mentioned before, Ive never really done any swim training… well, I hit the pool in the second week of the month and then joined a gym and have started to establish a bit of a routine. Ive now done more swimming in the last 3 weeks than I did in all of 2009. This isn’t exactly a reflection of three weeks of intense swimming.. its a sign that I just didn’t swim last year. In the last 3 weeks Ive swum 10700m… Over 10k of swimming. Sweet!
2 weeks back I hit a good target of 2 workouts in each sport for the week. 2 swims, 2 bikes, 2 runs… AND a weights session.
This week I hit the 2 X 2 X 2 again and its only Friday, which means I’m likely to hit my ideal target for the week which is 2 X swim, 3 X bike, 3 X run for ~ a 10 hour training week.
Today is a rest day though, and I’m very glad of it. I don’t yearn for rest days that often, but today I need one.
