I think I might be developing a bit of a Zwift addiction.  Just did my 7th day straight, 9 out of the last 10.  Really enjoying the FTP build workouts.  Hopefully they actually work :)

Need to use the last week I have off work to get some swimming in though, did 1st OWS for over 12 months the other day, felt like I had been hit by a truck by the evening....

Short 30min gym workout today. I felt like a flea down there today. Lunchtime Sunday must be when the big boys come out to play. There were about 6 others at the gym, and the smallest had biceps bigger than my quads. :(

I have to say it is what is making me keep riding to be honest. Day 4 was an Endurance 'Free' ride which I actually struggled to keep any form of structure during the hour.  The intervals are the perfect break-up for a ride.  I think I have to increase my FTP though as some of them are a little easy, but I would expect them to increase in the next few sessions though.

So you put your FTP in at the start of the program, presumably you finish with an FTP test as well?

I started with the 45min short FTP test which i presume set the interval power levels for the sessions.

Yesterday attended the Pursue Tri Club - Nudgee Masters Swimming charity 100 x 100's ( though I only swam 5k) raising $600 for Hummingbird House Childrens Hospice. Followed that up with 40k of med-hard on the TT  bike and straight into a 2k run. Probably need to adjust my training as my only 2 races this summer will be 300/12/3

1:45 run (90 min easy, 15 min tempo) this morning before work on the back of a pretty rubbish nights sleep. Can't see that being a problem tonight :sleep1:

40 minute gym session. Feels good going every 2nd day at the moment. Slowly increasing my weights and/or reps, and loving it. Still playing it very careful with the joints, but so far it's all good.

I'm jealous - I can almost taste the water. Is it cold?  A lot of talk around about cold currents at the moment.

1500m swim this morning and 50min Zwift in the afternoon.  Started week 2 of FTP build sessions, think I might have to take a couple of days off, starting to gas out a little.

I did a mile at the dam this morning. It was busier in the dam with all the swimmers there than it was on the roads at 7am heading in to the city after it.

MTB ride with the bloke and the kid. 5k uphill nearly killed me. 5k downhill was much more pleasant. Feeling like crud now though. Damn keto.

I thought I had a lazy day today, but was very tired by dinner time. I checked the watch, and over 18,000 steps. No wonder I'm tired.

How were the jellies?

A friend posted a pic from Sandgate the other day with about a billion blobbies in it.

My kids loved using the washed up ones on Teewah Beach as “speed bumps” earlier this week.

We went up to Caloundra with the dog this afternoon. I ended up with bluebottle welts over my lower legs from standing in the wash. They were everywhere all over the beach.
