'How cold?' I hear you ask, cold enough that yesterday on the way to the outdoor pool with a dodgy heat pump—at 6AM—my car waned me that I could encounter 'icy conditions'.
Today it’s warmer, 3c (39f), but somehow this Canuck turned Aussie is still balking at getting on the bike to train.
Edit: But I did. 68km ride, 30 min run.
Many of the members of the Tri squad I belong to are also taking part in the 70.3 at Mooloolaba in September. On the group ride this morning, one of these fellows piped up and reminded us all we only have 11 Sundays left until race day.
Scary thought that.
Ps. Is there anything so aptly named than a brick workout?
This is the elevation profile for a 14km race I did this morning. (http://fairfax.tiktok.biz/city2south/2014/04801). I missed my goal time by just over a minute—which somehow feels worse than missing it by an hour ;).
Strange distance, great course, fun event. I’ll definitely try and get back next year.
I might even find that one minute and three seconds.
There were weeks last year where I didn’t swim as far as I swam today. Feels good to be back in the pool.
Feels better knowing I don’t have to wake up at 4:30 to do it again tomorrow!
First solo swim in a while. 2300m at an excruciatingly slow pace.
But 14 wks out from 70.3 at Mooloolaba.
Every workout counts.
Lately I’m finding I’m going on group runs-often led by others on tracks I don’t know. What I love most about this is that I get to experience running tracks I’m unfamiliar with
According to our leader this morning, today’s run was (aptly) called the roller coaster. (Proof above)
The great thing…it’s only 5kms from home!
