What a weekend!

Well last week was my biggest week of 'normal' training so far, excluding of course my training camp.

Put in over 15 and a half hours of training this week - I must confess, I'm looking forward to my rest day tomorrow.

On Friday I knocked more time off my 3km swim, although I'm still 20 seconds over the hour mark. I followed this up later with a 1 hour run and 10 minutes of that 'busting a gut' so to speak, with my heart rate hovering around 170 bpm… I don't think I could go a great deal faster!

On Saturday morning I managed an incredibly scenic, although incredibly windy, 5 hour ride taking me on a 113km loop through Wishaw, Motherwell, Carluke, Carnwath, Biggar, Lanrk, Stonehouse, Strathaven, Glassford, Quarter, Hamilton and home! 

Today saw me break 4 personal bests on 1 run - the most significant was knocking about 90 seconds off my 1/2 marathon p.b. Not too shabby given it was a steady zone 2 run in yet more windy, sunny , warm, cold and wet conditions - welcome to Spring in Scotland. It's true what they say - if you don't like the weather here, wait 5 minutes!

I'll post up yet more riveting information when the Garmin site is back up and running… Now it's back to the marking for me. Enjoy the remainder of your weekend!

Well done sir.
I broke my p.b in running at the school on Monday, It was how many laps you could do in 12 mins I got 8 laps (3200m), for normall 5.
But well done. I will be watching the ironman (both)
