This weeks training started on Monday with hours coaching in the pool. This consists of 6 length drills. We start with a 6 lengths warm up. We then do 1 arm drills, catch ups, speed intervals and this we covered 48 lengths. These drills are really beginning to improve my technique and my speed.
Wednesday arrived, I love Wednesdays. I decided to forgo my early morning swim and my chance to annoy speedo man and run instead. This would be my first road run since THE FALL and I managed 4.5 miles. I am really pleased with my fitness levels as they have seemed to remain quite stable. I followed the run with hour on the turbo. Now I have to say at this point........ is it normal to dance around after every workout..... Ive only just started doing it, am I not pushing myself hard enough or am I just BUZZING MY TITS OFF!!!!!! I think its great, I really enjoy it, its my new warm down routine.
That brings us on nicely to Friday...........6 miles on the treadmill in 53.56 which is a really good time. After a 15 min warm up, I increased the speed every 10 mins and I felt really strong.
I am back, the ankle injury is a figment of my imagination. Oh yes I have just agreed to do a WHOLE ironman in the year 2012 in Wales!!!!!!
