Week 17 - Return of the Training


22/04/13 - Swim Session

Back to Day 1 again with the 16 week training plan. The plan starts with a simple swim and I was lucky enough to have the pool to myself. A new pool for my training to since we have moved house, and its brand new too!

4 x 100 wu
2 x (16 x 25s)
Sprint every 4th
2 x 100 wd

I took it slow and steady, didn't smash the session out and keep it the same stroke speed throughout the session.

Duration 00:45:00

23/04/13 - Turbo Session

Simple spin on the bike, get the legs working and awake. I put the bike on a low to middle resistance and peddled for 45 minutes with the company of the British & Irish Lions tour 2005.

I did this session without the Garmin, so flying solo.

Week 14, 15 & 16 - Nothing


After moving in, and being ill and just loosing all my training mojo I haven't trained for 3 weeks, I'm 8 weeks into my half Ironman training plan and I feel really down hearts and lacking in motivation to train.

This has put a big spanner in the works for my main race this season the Cotswolds113, it was my A race last year and I've got a time to beat but I am really struggling to just get up early or get home late from work to go and train.

Whats wrong with me..

Week 13 - Its Here.. Moving Times



No training planned this week as we are trying to move into our new house.

I am a tad frustrated though as I've build my body up to handle the routine of training again, its going to be  a shame to not get any training in but I'd rather be moving house!

Fingers crossed I'll get some training in next week

Motivation...

I've been really struggling with motivation recently, and its really effected my training. I've recently found some training partner...
