2.something km swim
lots of drills and a few sprints.
hit 1:19 for 100 so happy about that :)

Helped another club mate take a few seconds off his 50's. He was happy about that too.
Been enjoying the european swimming championships this week. Those competitors are fierce!

Looks like it is just the three of us left with training logs.
Have you identified the bats?

Yup, this forum format offers too much permanence for modern thinking, obviously...(there's a whole lot of irony there.)

Didn't identify the bats no, I'm not up on them at all.

Monday. I hate this Monday. Lost another good friend. FUCK.

Swam earlier with Polly.
2km more or less of bits and pieces.

Tuesday is a blur. Grieving. 12x200+some head down not thinking. all at 3:09-12 off 3:30or4:00. hour half of good badminton. needed company.

Wed gym adventures...
left arm finally pushed a 14kg DB in bench. and a 16! Needed that to give me some motivation.
failed 40kg bench on the captive bar, but got 37.5

Swim-1.2km interupted
usual warm up, sans fly.
100 @1:25 ...meh.
200 core drills
25 easy
6x50 sprints with 30 sec planks, 1 min rest between pairs.
25esay
50 in 38
fire alarm got everyone out of the water.
100 easy
puking kid-again- got everyone out of the water...

sauna was full of smoke where a less than average intelligence person had poured eucalyptus/menthol oil onto the heater. hence the fire alarm...

Thursday did a bike race, a 5 person relay of 5x1.4km lap in the centre of town (support race for the Pearl Izumi Tour.)
Awesome lap, down hill for half of it with some great open curves at full speed, then slamming into a narrow 100° turn after some fierce downhill braking and a slog back up to the line through a noisy crowd.

Finished well, and the team did great, but I had destroyed my lungs for the rest of the day, so no OW duathlon :(
Was fine for Friday.
Friday, 200m climbing in 10 miles of running. first half great, but the midday heat had my HR way up and I really struggled for the last 4 km.
Sat, work
Sun, work then an hour of attempted fartlek session, managed a 6:29 mile, a pyramid of sprints and a 4:00 km. kind of fun
Today, gym session, gone backwards a little, but no surprise there. consistency wins right? time to get some consistency in then.
swim
1200m ish, incl suicide plank set. core O'clock.

later swim. typically TT was on the board. I was in no fit state. 15 and 20 seconds slower than PB's on both 2 and 400. sucks. My later 200 was slower than my 400...
the rest of the session was core work, so I was good there!
Unfortunately my right shoulder and lower back are both shouting at me now :(

Hot water bottle and sleep will hopefully fix it.

1/2 hour on the bike, steady run to the shop. 11.5km
stretching today...lots of stretching. woke up feeling lightly battered by someone with a big, big stick...

...and the DOMS from the core session is maturing into some discomfort quite nicely...but it's worth it for the results. I shall keep telling myself that!

Gentle swim, still a few aches, hopefully be back to some semblance of fit soon.
Lots of drills and steady swim whilst Polly had a great workout, probably the strongest I've seen her swim. v. proud dad :)

Went to badminton yesterday despite being really stiff and cronky. played really well...go figure.

Poor consistency, but some great sessions.

Emotional rollercoaster of Stuff.

10-15min swim in the Gulf of Arabia, just so I can say I have. 40+°C air temp. Water very warm too.

2km club swim yesterday. tough
3km today. a little off the pace, but felt OK.
