I keep forgetting that I am triathlon training and secondly that i am writing a blog about it. So since my epic bike ride up the gorge this is what I've done;
The day after my bike ride I went for a super fast 3 miler in 25.40 ( my fastest to date in training in 25.32)
The following day I ran another 3 miler at a slower pace 27.42 but I also went for a swim to completing )0.82 miles in 48 minutes. I do have to say this isn't constant swimming as i do have short little breaks.
On Saturday I had a rest because I was going to run a long run on Sunday ( bit worried I haven't been putting in the miles and I have 2 half marathons coming up)
So on Sunday I thought I would drive up to Cheddar reservoir because it looked huge and I thought it would be at least 6 miles all the way around. It was very disappointing, a loop around the reservoir was just over 2 miles. I ran around it 3 times and a bit and clocked up 7 miles. I really had wanted to do at least 9 but even with the beautiful back drop running round in a big circle three times is more than enough for me.
I decided to bike it today, haven't been out on the bike in what seems ages. I thought I had picked a 30 mile loop but took wrong turning somewhere which was probably beneficial because I ended up going up some pretty steep hills http://connect.garmin.com/activity/41011980
26.84 miles in 2.13.35. I did as well after going up the first big hill find a beautiful windmill which was so lovely that I didn't see the pothole and then promptly fell of my bike...
