Monday I felt tired and missed the AM group ride due to an ‘echanical’ (sic) but did an easy ride before running with the boys up and down the road. I felt motivated so when they went in I did my normal loop.
Tuesday was another tired start on the bike but I did a longer loop in the PM sun. I lost my chess match too quickly with a really stupid blunder.
On Wednesday I joined RNRM Tri for an easy social ride round New York. My first time on Discord chat which seemed to work well.
By Thursday I was knackered but my lack of backbone and knowing that I ‘should do some exercise’ saw me join Lord Orange for some FTP sessions around the Volcano of pain. Was excellent and I did an hour and a half setting new PBs for 1min and 5min power.
I went for a slight variation of my normal run loop on Friday. Felt good. My achilles (left) is a little tired/sore at the start of a run but once loosened it’s fine. I’ve started stretching more. I know people say it’s bollocks but I’ve noticed it make things better as I’ve increased miles on bike and running.
I joined a 30Km TT on Saturday with RNTri and did it in 1:02:25. Three laps of Central Park in 18:56, 20:00, 20:55 and bits for the last bit to make it 30Km. We went for a family walk after at Aldenham Park around the 100 Aker Wood.
Sunday longish run of 12 miles around trails exploring new routes and bumped into a Twitter runner of Centurion races. Was lovely and sunny.
My Huub ‘Better in than out’ top arrived – size XL and still tioght!
Book: Free Country by George Manhood (finished) – downloaded a few more 99p ones. I won’t be reading Mid-life Cyclist. Fuck me it’s depressing. I thought I’d read the running book but can’t imagine I have. I had to unfollow Matt Haig recently for similar reasons -for a depressive he’s bloody depressing! Follow Andy Cope instead and make everyday great!
