Ironman Journey Weeks Two and Three

Interesting couple of weeks. Was still in Amsterdam for week two. Had the Triathlon England awards evening and AGM also. Week three included a weekend away for the first of three weekends doing my level two triathlon coaching qualification.

All in all still happy with my training as I started early to allow for these kind of things. However looking forward to getting back to “normal” over the next few weeks.

Week two (Repeat of week one Don F plan)

Monday – We decided to hire some city bikes in Amsterdam. So much fun. Not actual training but they were heavy with minimal gears :D.

Tuesday – Travelled home. No training

Wednesday – Award ceremony. No training.

Thursday – Managed a 2k swim. As well as a spinning session and run off the bike (on a treadmill).

Friday – Another 2k swim.

Saturday – Ran to and around park run.

Sunday – Club ride.

Totals for this week

Swim – 1 hour 26 mins (Should have been 2)

Bike – 6 hour 58 mins (Should have been 2)

Run – 1 hour 5 mins (Should have been 2)

Week three (Week 2 of DF)

Monday – Managed to get a swim in at the club swim which was a nice bonus.

Tuesday – Tuesday I worked from home and managed to turbo as was babysitting in the evening.

Wednesday – Was running club. Hill work, great session.

Thursday – Back to work running club which was fab as Janet got a huge 5k pb. Her progression this year has just been fantastic. In the evening I did spin fusion, forgot to run afterwards….annoying.

Friday – No training as we had a club social night.

Saturday – Level 2 coaching all day. No time to train as had to work on my session plan in the evening for the next day, and chatted to some of the other people on the course in the evening. It was a very stressful weekend for me, way out of my comfort zone and got myself worked up. Woke up with very bad asthma in the early hours of the morning. The room was really stuffy, so am going to go back to the doctors. My asthma seems to be either stress or humidity related…..doesn’t appear to be pollen.

Sunday – Day two of the course. Swim practical assessment day. Did get to swim a few lengths (Didn’t record it) and got some unexpected but very helpful stroke feedback. Thanks Rob Lines.

Wasn’t really near to week 2 DF totals so going to repeat again next week.

Totals for this week

Swim – 0 hour 39 mins (Should have been 2)

Bike – 2 hours 13 mins (Should have been 2.5)

Run – 1 hour 30 mins (Should have been 2.5)
