Pretty pleased with this week as managed to do 10.5 hours of training in the past week.
I completed 5 swims:
2 x 2.5k
2 x 4.5k (on Tuesday, a course that started later than my usual start time meant an extra hour in the pool, and on Thursday, for the first time in ages, I actually managed to get up on my morning off rather than stay in bed)
1 x 5k (today, the furthest I've swum in a couple of months, 1.5k of drills, and then 3.25k of continuous swimming as I need to build up the mental tolerance for distance again)
Swimming has definitely clicked in again; the week after a training camp is always a bit hideous as I am very tired, but then you usually start to feel some improvement. No Olympians hanging out at the pool now means that I can get on with the job in hand!
I went out on the bike:
40 mile ride yesterday (had to go around the block when I got back as was 3/4 mile short)
I went to pilates! And I wished that my pilates teacher did another class that I could get to as I would have liked to have gone again.
I didn't run at all - at the start of the week I was nursing a slightly strained ankle, now it's a bit better, but getting out on the bike and getting a decent amount of swimming in was the priority for this week.
In other news, I'm hopefully lining up something exciting, less than 2 weeks after completing the ironman. Watch this space as I just need the ducks to get in the row first (day off work, B and B accommodation booked, the website for the actual event to work when I try to enter...). I'm also about to fully update the events on the right hand side of the blog-site with everything that I've got lined up for this year :)
