Good Week

13 10 2011

It’s been a good week.

On Sunday, I completed my first 150km ride of the season (on the back of very little training), Tuesday I started to get the feeling like I am really starting to make some serious progress in the pool, a strong 60km ride on Wednesday, and then today, my first 1km in the pool.

That’s 1000m! Sure it wasn’t non-stop, nor was it all pure laps, but it was good to get some serious lappage in (I may have just made up a word). Today, 400m of laps, interspersed with 300m of arms only and 300m of legs only. It’s not a lot to some, but to me, it’s a HUGE breakthrough. I was exhausted by the end of it, but could’ve done more – once again, time constraints.

More swimming tomorrow. I’m very excited.

Oh, and I think I just agreed to (attempt to) run the Gold Coast Marathon in July next year.

Excellent news of the GCM, it’s a great event. I will front up again providing I get over Tokyo quickly

Well, it’s up in the air again now. Luke challenged me to run it with him, and I agreed as long as he agrees to do a long ride with me later in the year. I’m trying to convince him to do the 2012 210 ATBIAD and he’s not sure and is talking of cancelling the challenge.
