Upping the Miles

Started to really up my training now and seem to be getting some great workouts in.

This week I went spinning on Tuesday and Thursday and ran just under 10miles on Wednesday in 1hr 22mins which was a good time for me.

I also ran a 10k on Friday night in 48.19 with a 23.19 first 5k split which was about 30 seconds off my PB but the route I chose went uphill for around 2k so hopefully that time will come down as I change it.

So since last sunday Ive ran 28miles and cycled around 53miles. Have`nt been down the pool this week but will get down there soon for a dip.

New bike has been ordered also so hopefully that will be here in a week or so :)

Started to get abit annoyed that none of my bloody clothes are fitting me now, o well rather this way than the other :)

Spin Spin Spin

Started spinning this week which I think should really help my leg strength in those long hilly rides! first session was Tuesday, averaged 251 watts and 90 RPM which apparently is quite good for first time in over a year! Second session was Thursday evening which averaged 249 Watts. The instructor did happen to tell everyone in the class that she wanted everyone looking like me (clinging to the bike looking like im about to pass out or be sick!) what a state haha! heart rate was about 182 tho so was working hard!

Mums Bday this weekend so only did 3.5 mile run on Sat Morning along the beach and just got in from an apparent (had to plot myself=inaccurate) 12miles in 1hr 47mins, think its more like 11 miles but still puts me on a 2 hourish half which is what im going for.

Best of luck to Kayleigh Running the Silverstone half marathon today!

More Training

After a good last week of training I took a few days off this week but did a 5k Run on Wednesday then continued in the gym on Friday evening.

A quick 10miles bike Ride followed by a 2 miles Brick Run to try and get used to that jelly`d leg feeling after cycling, then I jumped in the pool and did my full 70.3 Distance 1.9km in a very satisfying 36mins (10mins ahead of goal), I found the swim quite easy also and hopefully in a straight line will be much quicker as to not stop and turn around each end.

Saturday Morning - Another 30miles Bike ride through the country hills but did it 20mins quicker than last week and really didn`t struggle apart from a few steep hills.

Sunday Morning - 15.7 mile run, Went with Kay on one of her weekly long runs and really tried to push myself, managed it just but knees are now paying the price, good to know I can cover the 13.1miles I need in my race.

Me and Kay then went to the Tri exibition to sample the many many nutritional products and get myself fitted for a wetsuit, I got fitted in a brand Blue Seventeen which was perfect but they wanted £230 for it which I thought was rather expensive, Made a note of Size / Model and found a brand new one on ebay with tags which I purchased for a rather cheaper £100 :)
