Good sessions in the gym today: strength training on the spin bike followed by a longer endurance run on the treadmill, leg weights and stretches. That's another 1100 kCalories burned… just as well as I'm out to meet pals for curry and a couple of beers later this evening!
Tomorrow the training plan kicks in with a vengeance… I'm due for a 2 hour endurance session on the bike followed by a 90 minute run. I won't make the same mistake I did last time though when I did these sessions back to back… it was pretty tough. Still, in a few months time I'll be looking to do a 4 hour run off the back of a 6 hour cycle, so I'd better man up and get on with it ;-)
Good Luck to my pal Derek Stewart who is training for the Marathon des Sables. Today he is running the Great Glen - all 79 miles of it!
