What training did you do today?

Recommended Posts

First time I've done all the sports in this comeback (ssshhh don't say that word).

One was a 4 k jog with the dog. And one a slow broken 1200m swim. And some time on the trainer. Still lots not right re body. But improving. Slowly.

Did the M7 cycleway on Sunday morning - 78K out and back route, with just water. I was dying by the end, but it's different to my normal ride (Freshwater up through Akuna Bay), where I normally get stopped by lights for the first 20k, the M7 was pretty constant with some rolling hills, i'll definitely be back. Backed it up with a 3.4k swim - slept like a baby last night!

1st time since Port HIM that I have done what I would consider training. Last week was 4.6kms swimming; 24kms running and an hour gym. Trying to get on the bike this week however, it is only a short week for me. I am off to Broadbeach on Thursday arvo with a couple of mates to take out a friend who is not 100%. Golf Friday, races Saturday and the casino. Back home Sunday.

Hopefully it won't be too painful coming into Nepean and WS HIM.

No smog at the moment. That will come as it gets cooler and more people burn stuff to stay warm.

Like riding in all cities, I'm more worried about breathing in the pollutants you can't see.

I went for a bit of a cliffy shuffle this morning. 2min/1min shuffle/walk and it felt just friggin great. Don't know that I should have, but I really needed it. Was still really slow, only 8min/K average pace over the whole 3.3k. but it was so good.

First rains in Cairns is such a long time.  Nice chance for a wet cool session.

2km warm up and 2km cool down.  Main set was 2x(4 X 500m).  Goal was 2:05 to 2:10.  Six under 2min and two just over, range 7 seconds.

I did a VO2max test this morning, which was fun.  I hadn't done one since 1994.... interesting to compare

I did 1km swim this morning. Shoulders are sore, but it's the first training of anything I've done since early June. My local pool opens next week, so I thought I'd go to another that I've got a 3 year old 10 visit pass with 3 left, just to get a little fitness back before I start Monday. This is what I have waiting for me Monday when they reopen after a virtual complete rebuild of the pool.

Yeah, they should have just added it on while they were at it over the Winter. This was the pool a couple months ago. That's why it's opening so late this year.

Longest ride in over 5yrs, 50kms @ 26kmh in 1:58 with the group training for the Gong MS ride.  Lucky it was under 2hrs or I'd have to shave my legs again :wink3:  Felt strong today - intriguing what not having 3 beers and 3 wines the night before does :wine:

Can't really see the need, or have the desire to ride more than about 2hrs anymore.
