So my swim training is kicking into high gear – with 123 days to go, I guess it had to at some point. A Tuesday night 5.6k set took 1hr 45mins – which seemed ok until I realized the race is 10km in Lake Bala so basically I am looking at about 3.5 hours if I don’t speed up! If you fancy replicating the session it was: 1 x 600 pb/pad
6 x 100 pb only – 10 sec rests
2 x 500 pb/pad – 30 sec rest
5 x 200 1st , 3rd and 5th are pb/pad; 2nd and 4th are pb only – 15 sec
3 x 400 pb/pad – 25 sec rest
4 x 300 1st and 3rd are pb/pad, 2nd and 4th are pb only – 20 sec
The weather has been, shall we say, “changeable”. There was a 2 hour window last weekend to take out The Beast (I am experimenting with names for my bike). This was the inaugural outing – and I am so happy to say The Beast is ALIVE! She is a Dimond with Knight 65 front and 95 rear wheels – perfectly fitted as always by Richard at FreeSpeed.
It was nice to be outdoors as I have been doing all of my cycling on the turbo trainer in the garage. At some point I think I will have watched every movie on YouTube!
