|Tuesday's Run 11.9k
Swam at the Cocks Moor Woods Leisure Centre on Wednesday. Managed 1,650m in just under an hour and ten minutes. This was an early morning swim just prior to my 'Urgent Care' meetings at work. Chlorine does wonders to your hair - my ex-boss commented that I looked like a homeless person. Nice.
Thursday was a bad day. First I suffered with the squits. Then I suffered with blockage. Oh, the wonders of imodium. No training took place today.
|Bike and benches 'with clothes on'
This run should have taken place straight after my cycle earlier, but, err, it didn't. How could I go out running in daylight dressed like I was?! Am going to have to come up with better excuses not to run these 'bricks'. As for the run, it was a nice jog just short of 8k. Great day all round really.
Finally, at last, I managed to complete a brick session on Saturday. Cycled for about an hour on this cold, chilly day and covered about 24k. Slow transition followed as I parked bike at my parents and then got changed into running gear at my own abode. My run was interesting. I ran about 5k running a broken version of the Studley triangle. The interesting thing was, I passed Nigel, twice. I didn't recognise him on the first passing but on the second there was no doubt it was him. Have to say, Nigel looks real happy when running, a massive smile across his chops. Maybe he's not running hard enough?! Ha!
Finished the week with a swim and spin session at tri-club. I swam in the improvers class but didn't really feel that I was improving. The spin was the usual sweaty affair and very well attended.
All in all, I had a good week. Slightly annoyed that I didn't push myself to swim more and should start doing more 'brick' work really too. I didn't complete my 'prescribed 10 Jonny Mitchum Training Hours' either - but I was close at 9.5!
