Finally back in the pool again after coming out of my chocolate induced coma over Easter.

3km. Felt absolutely shit, but good to be back in the water. Took till my last 50m rep in the 2nd part of the main set to actually swim a reasonable time for anything.

Two high speed (by MTB standards) crashes on the UNE Track this morning.

Busted my helmet, but it did its job.  Was a 20yo MET. Went and bought a new Scott from the LBS and put the bike (my wife's) in for a service as it ain't shifting too well now :whistling:

Damn I was riding like a Womble, kept missing the lines, front wheel washing out all the time (which was the cause of the two prangs on fairly non-technical but fast corners)

Limping around like a half-opened pocket knife now, but I'll come good.  Feel like a kid again with skin off everywhere :D

Wanted to stay off the road this weekend to keep out of all the crap washed onto the roads after a couple of days of heavy rain - mainly giant prickles.

So I did an indoor trainer/treadmill -  (15min bike/5min run ) x 4

Watching the 1976 Paris-Roubaix.  

Most memorable line....... "a rare steak makes a substantial breakfast before a race like this"   as they tucked into big steaks before the race.

Interesting to watch - Merckx was a bit anal about his seat and bar height (and crashed out)

The cars and motorbikes were ridiculously hazrdous to the riders

Neutral service guy sat on the outside f the car going full bore hanging onto the roof racks.  When they found a rider needing a wheel, he took one off and gave it to them, they gave him the busted one, then took off and left him to change it himself.

I did a hilly 90km with a hangover this morning. I really need some chips now but I'm all out (ate them all yesterday).  So I'm going to watch Wentworth in the bath and eat cheese on toast instead.

Took all 3 dogs out to the sandhills for something different for my running. 

I used to come out here every couple of weeks and had forgotten how much I enjoyed it - it's an hour drive each way, so makes for  long session.

Not my longest running session, but it was fun.  Ended up with 5km. Did a couple of loops with all 3, then the older 2 pooped out so I went to my "bowl" - a sort of ampitheatre with a big bush in the middle.  2 older dogs lay in the shade and watched me go up and down all the insides.  The younger one would stop in the shade, wait till I was halfway up then sprint after me.  Then trot back to the shade with the others.

Quite fun actually, and a nice day for it.

You gotta do what you enjoy.  Sure it's important to do the 'training required' but you also need to fit in a few sessions that you do 'just for the fun of it'.

Pretty much all the training that I've done for the past several years has been just for the fun of it, but I've always had a few goals on the horizon that has helped keep things interesting.  Not so much this year, and my fitness has been suffering as a result of it.  The mojo's been missing for a while but I'm sure it will return...  Your posts about doing some sessions you really enjoy is motivating me to get out and do some of the things that I haven't done in years.  That'll get the juices flowing again!
