24/10/12 - Rest Day

25/10/12 - Rest Day

26/10/12 - Free Run

I'm a day behind on the recovery run, after the weekend half marathon. I had sore hip flexes which I think are down to my lacking core stability, so the aim of this session was just to get out, do a quick run and get home. It was chilly too, so winter running is definitely here!


This is the 2nd time I've been out in the dark in Lamphey and I happy to say it wasnt as scary as the first time and my mind didnt play to many tricks on me. A few russels on leaves did make me up my pace but apart from that all good. I'm sure there may have been a few heart rate spikes as I jumped a few times but I couldn't find my HR monitor so I can just I was man enough not to be scared!

This above photo looks like I was out in extreme cold condition.. well I was.. at least 8'c or am I robbing a bank... I'm not quite sure.

 27/10/12 - Turbo Session

I've managed to create some space in the garage and dig the turbo out just in time for #Turbovember so why not get a session in after doing all that clearing. It was cold in the garage to start so I did have a few layers on but by the time I was finished, I was down to the minimum amount of clothing and it was soaked through, so a sign of a hard session perhaps?

Simple session of:

10 minutes warm up
2 minutes at 100 RPM x 10
2 minutes at 80 RPM x 10
10 minutes warm down

Well this was the plan but the session more looked like a 90 at maximum RPM but at least I was trying to get there.


It was really good to get on the turbo again, but I doubt I'll be saying that after November as my arse is already hurting so I need to dig out the padded shorts.

28/10/12 - Turbo Session

Why not get out on the turbo again tonight, I hear you say... well guess what I did and it was really good. I know when has the turbo been "Really Good", the only bad part it that after only 1 session I'm a tad bit tender on the under carriage. Time to man up and get on with the session.

Another simple session of:


10 minutes warm up
25 minutes at high RPM (80+)
5 minutes warm down


The longer the session went on the harder I found myself working, this was increasing the amount of sweat running off my face and the speed of my heart rate. Another thing I noticed that more items of clothing were coming off the harder I was working, I hope I wasn't turning to into a turbo stripper, as if my next session is longer that 60 minutes I'll have no clothes on!
