Did we get a brick in?……read on:
|goings on in hobbiton|
|Sunday||12km run done. Surprisingly legs and brain coped at the time. I am going to lose a toenail though…..|
|Tuesday||extra rest day – 10k steps done but otherwise body too tired. Obviously the extra running distance has knock on effects.|
|Wednesday||Brick number one in the bag. 10 mile bike and 5km run straight afterwards in a PB of 29.06 – every km under 6 minutes.
Not sure what got into me! Amazingly, this was actually on the schedule.
|Thursday||Swim – feels like recovery. This week garmin said I had done 70 lengths so I believed it.|
|Friday||Sufferfest time (violator !) – so enjoyable on new bike, can’t wait for cadence and speed meter for power stats *geek face*|
|Saturday||Strength training: sufferfest has lots of amazing yoga videos, no suffering involved!|
|multi-tasking major activities|
This week: recover from cold.
half hour bike ride, faster than last time but shorter only 13km, and an hour on a horse.
|Monday||20000 horse steps, not riding my horse (he’s got heat rash which is really sore) and riding in some horrid hard saddle which gave me a blistered bum. Nice.|
|Tuesday||16000 horse steps. And some looking after ill daughter. (Bad multitasking in action)|
|Wednesday||7000 steps, looked after ill daughter but made her come and look at kitchens which was a bit mean. Actually she was feeling better and enjoyed opening and shutting every single door/drawer she could.|
|Thursday||Hideous 13 hour day at work. Returned home from work at half eight and couldn’t face swimming. Felt guilty. This neither got me fitter nor made me healthier.|
|Friday||Supposed to finish work at two, finished at half five, drive to a course in Newbury.|
|Saturday||Got up early. Ran round Newbury racecourse. 5km. Felt smug all day that I’d managed to run before the course. And learnt lots on a really great course. Had to spend the afternoon kneeling in the mud and rain getting pretend casualties onto stretchers. I fear I’m turning into a trauma pervert, like all the trauma doctors I’ve despised over the years. I will be in an orange jumpsuit before I know it (HEMs rather than Guantanamo Bay).|
