What training did you do today...

Recommended Posts

Got the roller out today, 3 days into my return and have a nasty calf cramp.  Considering the most I've run is 1km in 7min/km pace...

Might get out for a short trot after lunch to test the new shoes, and hopefully loosen up some very sore legs!

Rolled around at Pirt Stephens tri on rough guts. Had to have a potty stop at 6km mark. Still - 12 minutes faster than last year ... and I got a second place in the fat bastards category ... :)

rolled around park run this morning, 8 minutes off my pb so have a bit of work to do.  Calves remained pretty good, so followed it up with some time on the spin bike and the rowing machine

Good work.  We each have our own challenges, don't be pressured into overdoing it.  Like you say, baby steps.

2.5km in a very cold dam this morning, then built this garden. Zero cost, as I used someone's unwanted sleepers, free mulch from the dump, and plants thinned from other gardens. Even my boss is happy with the result.

Did a couple hours in the garage this morning - rowing, spin bike, treadmill, weights and some stretching.  First time since 2 Bays in Jan I've burnt over 1000 calories in exercise in a day - felt damn good

An hour on the windtrainer then 7K off the bike at comfortable pace. Just started my new plan for Sunny Coast 70.3.

 

Went back to t the gym the other day to do some weights and was quickly reminded that I really hate going to the gym. I don't mind weights - just hate the other people in the gym :-D

If tapering starts this weekend, I'd hate to be on the other side in court by late next week.

No court - lots of reports and case preparation though!

5km OW swim this morning. Then an hour of shivering & shaking which I think wore me out even more.

3 laps of Mt Petrie on the TT this morning.  It's a pretty good route before the traffic builds.

Still diddly squat real training or exercise.  

But spent a bunch of time on the quaadbike working instead of walking.  Took the pup this time too.  Around 20km of surveying after he got used to the noise!  He's finally not scared of motorbikes anymore!

Permission from my physio to ride my bike on the road again.  But weeks still off runing and swimming.

Guess I can actually post in here for a change.  Had my biggest week on the bike..... in probably years (not including event rides).  3 on the road, 1 on the trainer, and around 150k's (just a regular weekend ride for some of ya's!).  Back hurt less than usual so yay...  And lotsa walking...
