I've done my intro so starting a log seemed like the next logical step!
My 2009 goals were
complete a sprint distance triathlon - have finished two and loved them!
increase overall fitness and lose bodyfat - ongoing project...
complete a 10k race in October - done in just over 1 hour
generally work on fitness for hillwalking/climbing
- tackle the short course Hebden 2010 challenge - an offroad half marathon in January!
complete an early season open water sprint triathlon
assuming above goes well, train for olympic distance triathlon
complete the coast-to-coast cycle route with work colleagues http://www.c2c-guide.co.uk/aboutc2c.htm 147 miles
complete the Rob Roy Way with my mum plus our three dogs, camping and carrying our own gear http://www.robroyway.fsnet.co.uk/ 92 miles round where I grew up
contemplate entering the Aberfeldy middle distance triathlon!!! Though I suspect I will be looking to do this next year really
Last 2 weeks training:
Sunday long run-sort of! it ended up being a run with route finding, stile climbing and mud wallowing too! Was out 1hr 45mins, av pace 16min/mile, and about 6.3miles - felt really good actually but too much walking because of the mud/path/stiles etc.
Tues 2 mile run at reasonable pace
rest of the week was a washout - much too busy
Friday gym again - 15min X trainer, 15min row, 40 min treadmill, planks
Saturday too much time stuck at a desk = jammed SI joints
Sunday Road event (I don't like calling them races!) 5.25miles all on road with some nice hills. Despite a sore back, not enough fluids and only 5 hrs sleep (plus 2 hr drive over) finished in 51mins 15 secs and no walking at all *yay*
Monday REST! my quads are really burning
Tuesday 30min recovery run, felt good but not much in the way of reserves
Wednesday 30min swim session
Aiming for a longer run on Thursday morning, gym programme to get some weights in on Friday, rest Saturday and then a long run on Sunday...
And a decision to start logging my food *gulp*
