Busselton Half Ironman

Sunday, March 21, 2010

I'm back - well sort of :)

After my 5 days of no training and feeling very under the weather I started to feel better so Saturday would be the day to do a training session - although as my naturopath reminded me it should not be my "best session" but something to ease me back into training

I had planned on my schedule bike intervals of 3/6/9/12 miles with rest of 1/2/3 mins - I converted this to km and decided to ride the freeway cycle path as this is new and a lot like the terrain in Bussleton.

I rode fairly steady and realised early on that I would not be able to push myself, wasn't until after I got home that I worked out I did the distance wrong - I rode 5 / 10 / 15 / 30km so 60km in total so 6miles more than I should have!

Did no other training, thought it was a good idea to just stick to 1 session.

Sunday I picked a couple of sessions from earlier in the week so I did 21/18/15/12/9/6/3 situps + 200m row (chose rowing as have not run for a while) managed this in 11mins 12secs then followed this with 30 x DL 50% b/w 30kg did this in 1min 10secs found the first 18 ok then started to feel this at about 18 onwards

Am feeling ok this afternoon and looking forward to training this week with an olympic distance race planned for this coming Sunday - not an important race but the last one before my half ironman in May

  3. Jane,

    Glad you are feeling better. It might have done your body good to be off a couple of days. Keep feeling better.
