So it is officially one month before I start the serious training!
This weeks Training so far has been :
Monday 30 May 2011
4km run at around 06h30 ran alone at a fairly decent tempo all felt ok. At least at this time of the morninig it wasnt excessively cold so all in all a good run!
A 1km Swim at Lunch time...Its amazing how weak my upper body is, my shoulders really take strain. I break this session up into 4 X 250m swim, resting for about 40sec in between "sets" The First Set my Arms fell really tired especially the left one, but after the first set it kind of disappears and I can complete the rest of the sets fairly comfortably. I must admit i was really out of breathe during this session.

5km run at around 06h30 today and it was really good, the ankle seemed fine, and It was the first run in a new pair of Shoes, The Asics Evolution 6 (a motion control shoe). Legs felt a tad hyeavy at the start but it disappeared before i knew it. (not really taking notice of times at this stage just aiming to run comfortably)
Was scheduled to do a Spinning Class, but unfortunately had a crisis at work so couldnt get to the gym...doesnt really phase me too much as i had already got my run in for the day. Will be a longer day at the office hope not too long!
Wednesday 1 June 2011
Go Myself out bed at 04H30 this morning had a T Shirts, and 2 Long sleeve running tops, A Beanie a Bandana thing (thanks Runners world), and track suite pants and i was still cold!
Joined up with Two club Mates (Stephan And Karen The "Motor Mouth") ran further than i hoped to we done 7km, but at least we had a few short walks in between.
Always fun to run with the people from the running group, talk a little nonsense make a few jokes and before you know it the run is done...the Pace was easy the weather was cold...the new Shoes felt great, however i did feel a tingle in the damn ankle again...will have to keep an eye on it
