So it's nearing the end of the week and there's much excitement afoot as it's a Bank Holiday on Monday and I've got Tuesday off too ... HURRAH.... not that I'm dedicating any of this free time to Tri or half-mary training..NO.. I'm off to Blackpool! An iconic seaside resort in the North of England...if nothing else it will be a laugh!
Reason for the trip (well excuse really) is that the England Women's cricket team are playing New Zealand up there somewhere and a couple of the girls from the local cricket team play for the England (very special!).... so a group of us are heading north for some F-U-N!!!! I will take my trainers and some running shorts and try and get some exercise in - but I may be fighting a losing battle with that. As for sea swim - unlikely as it's blinkin freezing up there!!!!! Maybe I'll take my wetsuit!?!
And for some more good news .... The little calf muscle is healing well - hurrah! No bad reaction to my escapades on Monday... nought in the way of training on Tuesday, then a club swim Wednesday - which was fun. Tonight I've really tested the leg though.. 45min spin class (good fun!) straight onto the treadmill for a 5k.. took it easy the first 2.5k then racked up the speed a little, and finished on 5min/k pace... and the calf is still in one piece! :o)
So tonight was a good session. I'm going to try for a long run tomorrow which may convert into a long run/ walk depending on how my legs are in the morning. I'm still not sure whether I'll be on for the half Mary, only 3 weeks away now - so I've entered another one mid-October which will probably be a better bet!
Oh and I've started looking at doing an ATP for 70.3 - how many hours!?!?!?!? Blimey!
Right I'm watching "The Matrix" for the umpteenth time, although I think the first time this year.... isn't it just a FAB film!!!! Neo's just taken the pill and waking up in that pod thing.. eugh!
