Week 5 - Racing to race day

I’m still undecided about whether or not I will compete in triathlons this year, I’m still training for it just in case I do decide to give it a go. I completed my 2km swim last week in the usual sort of time, it’s difficult to improve the pace when the pool is busy as you often have to overtake people (or get overtaken). Consequently, getting a clear 80 lengths can be a challenge and is reflected in the time taken. You don’t usually suffer from this problem when swimming outdoors and is…

Training Week 4 - 19 Days until Spring / 5 Weeks until Race Day

As expected, this week has been a bit lighter with respect to training. I went to Wales for a Spa break, which by its very nature isn’t intended to be filled with strenuous exercise. There have been a couple of rough days too, those were not in the plan. I have missed a target, but whilst there is progress I’ll not complain too much. I’ve got a new camera which I intend to use primarily on the bike, it has some pretty cool features. We’ll get to thase in a bit.

Training Week 3 – Rolling back to 2013

Training week 3 complete, it’s been productive again. Still undecided about competing in Triathlons this year, I’ve been training for them just in case I decide to do some. In any case, the training only helps to build general fitness which certainly isn’t a bad thing for racing on the bike.

 

Lying Down

I had a target of swimming 8 km this month, this week I surpassed it. In 6 sessions I’ve covered 10 km in the pool, slowly increasing my speed with the…

Training Week 2 - The legs work!

Second week of training, there is progress.

 

Thanks to improvements in the weather I have been able to stay dry when out on the bike, I wouldn’t have missed out on the training if it was raining but it is nice to at least be dry. I have been doing a mixture of rides, incorporating some hills (although nothing major since we don’t have massive climbs in Birmingham) and a 10 mile TT training effort. The highlight of the week for me though was a training session at the…
