Juneathon Day 13

It may look like I missed day 12 but I actually reverted to desperate measures and captured it all in 140 characters of a tweet.... That was a close one!

This one will be brief too... Today I rode easy 30mins on my bike then gave it a clean and wipe down because tomorrow I race!

1.9k swim
90k bike
21k run

I'm hoping for something under 40 for swim, maybe under 35 if it goes well... Something around 3:15 to 3:30 on the bike and then hopefully survive the run... Assuming to GI issues then under 2:30 .... If I go under 6:30 I will be well chuffed... I'm still a long way away from my PB of 5:40... And maybe I will never see that time again!!!!

Still tomorrow is going to be fun if nothing else! In the words of  yoda... There is no try!

Juneathon Day 10 & 11

Well day 10 was so bereft of activity it barely deserves a mention.... Swimming was on my schedule but I'm fearful of having an ear issue before Sunday that I skipped it... And we'll because I had to be in at work be for 0830 so it wasn't going to happen before work and after work the adult swim time is after 8pm... So both these things just meant I was a bit of a juneathon no show for day 10.. I can't even claim extra steps from the car because I was wearing heels I parked closer! Loosely I will claim some toe yoga, about 5 Sun salutations (abridged version) and some general buttock clenching at appropriate (rather then inappropriate) moments......

So moving on swiftly to today ... Day 11 and a whole different story.... Despite the fact I have a race on Sunday I was shocked to see a multiple 2hr long total brick session appear in my schedule... WTF!... Not able to do 2 hrs before work I settled for splitting the session 1hr before and another hour when I got home.... The session was a mix of 10min bikes followed by either 5 or 15min run all done and a variety of paces. Needless to say I'm now knackered!!

So Juneathon Day 11 was 6 10 bike sessions and 6 run sessions (50mins total)... With transitions it ended up 2hrs...

So with that good night and happy damn nearly friday!

Juneathon Day 9

Back to being a day late again... Noted...

Yesterday was umm Tuesday so I got my juneathon exercise in nice and early and did a pre breakfast 33min easy jog.... Well 30mins easy actually with a very hard flat out 3mins in the middle!!

That was it all done before breakfast... If only I could get my posts done so swiftly!!

Juneathon Day 8

Following hot on the heels of the pathetic day 7 post I thought I may as well carry on the motion and get to day 8... And so just over a quarter of the way through!

Woke early after a very restless night full of bad dreams.... Was I think just after 5 when a cat decided I should be awake! This should have given me plenty of time to get up and fit in my morning workout but somehow I still managed to not be ready for action until 7... And then I had bike sensor issues so actually didn't get going for another 15mins or so! Lucky then that my workout for the day was an easy 33min turbo which was 15min warm up and 15min warm down with a 3min max effort in the middle..... All whilst watching an episode of casualty!

Prescription for tomorrow is something similar but on two feet rather then a bike!

Juneathon Day 7

Frankly yesterday was a Juneathon disaster .... Although I did have a lovely lazy morning and I did cook us a lovely late breakfast which was enjoyed in the sunshine!

Juneathon activities peaked at walking to the car and doing some yoga... Although it was only toe yoga so I'm not sure I can gain much credit from that!!?
