If anyone's wondering about all the cardio it's because I've just signed up for a 'wilderness triathlon' in September - http://www.princes-trust.org.uk/support_us/adventure_challenges/wild_uk.aspx
. It's a fundraiser for the charity I work for & I've agreed to be part of a staff team. It's 100 miles over 3 days on foot, kayak & bike, camping out each night.
Plan is to keep up 3 gym visits per week but also nail 3 cardio sessions, all of which will be running until I get my bike fixed. The event training plan makes a big deal of not underestimating the importance of strength training so I reckon I should be OK here, obviously though my CV fitness needs work. What I'm most worried about though to be honest is how sore my arse will be after so many hours on a bike
