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!  



Blog and YouTube list: Fast and has training example weeks

Chess: Lost both 45min + 15sec games but won a few in the 3min+2 sec ECF tournament.
