Light training continues
Short post today. Last week continued to go well. I swam 9km over four sessions and cycled 60km over two sessions. One of these was the 10 mile Time Trial that a group of us have started doing. I knocked over 40 secs off my PB set the week before, reducing it to 26'23". We do it individually, not as a group, so there's no drafting and the conditions are pretty tough - lorries, wind etc.
No running still as I'm having treatment on my pulled left calf. The lack of running is a drag but I have to accept a few weeks away from it. My running has really suffered over the last year and I'm determined to bring it back up to scratch when injuries allow.
Highlight of my week though was taking my youngest daughter, Alice, to Anfield to see Liverpool make a complete hash of trying to beat Birmingham City. Terrible game but a great day that we both enjoyed.
