Blimey! Monday night already - what happened to the weekend? Did I sleep through it? Did it happen......
So happily I got no adverse reaction to my Friday night x-trainer & run/ walk session.. HURRAH!
For some bizarre and unfathomable reason I got up EARLY Saturday to go OPEN WATER swimming in a very (VERY) COLD Lake...Brrrrrrr... Met up with some friends down there and cruised a couple of laps... No HRM, no timing so reckon I did something like 1.8k in 40ish mins. Very cool (literally and metaphorically speaking). Had a nice cuppa then, as rain was threatening, decided to drive over to my parents (original plan involved biking over but I hadn't planned on the swim and the horrid weather!). Spent a good morning with Ma and Pa before finally heading home..... time for a run or bike.. hummm.. no.. time for a BBQ! Yes a great British tradition - BBQ in the rain!
So Saturday night was spent over a friends house where we all huddled mainly inside (note it was that cold the heating was on), whilst BBQ was on and cooking outside! Very good sociable evening where I confess I had a beer (or several).... really enjoyed the evening until I woke up Sunday morning! Ouch! Nothing more then a bit of a hangover!
Eventually managed to drag my arse into gear late morning and ventured out on Biancha.... after 10k I decided my hangover wasn't getting any better so decided it was just best that I cycled to my friends house to pick up my car and not get too carried away with a big bike adventure after all ;o) ... So Sunday a very lazy 14k ride and that's it (POOR SHOW!)
I have managed to get back on the straight and narrow today though - Good 1.6k swim this morning (ouddles of drills). Tonight another 25mins on the x-trainer (YUK!!!) and 35mins run/walk. Calf feels ok so far although max run time was 8mins before it starting aching... so I am still being a bit careful - may try a road run in a couple of days time. If I can get a proper run in by the end of the week then I'll still do the half-mary in Sept, if I can't I'll sack that one and find another!!
Oh - look at the time... right time for some duvet loving...zzzzzzz
