Working Hard!

Last weeks training went rather well,

Monday - 5km Run in 22.25 - New PB
Tuesday - 1.5km Swimming - 40mins easy
Friday - 15.18km Run
Saturday - 48.2km Bike ride. (30miles)

After riding with a mate who is training for lands end to jon o groats I quite quickly realised how much work im going to have to put in to not be completely spent by the run. We only tackled 3 major hills which I struggled on all 3 but didnt get off!. 2 Hours of cycling and I was done, time to join the gym and start spinning again like I used to, I need to learn the push pull technique and ease the hills!.

I think I seriously need to consider a new bike with better components, my gears are clicking and skipping and the bike felt slow. After some advice I may purchase
