Daily updated training info + stuff #AKtraining

17 February 2017

Another day of traveling and no training, and no training - or so I thought. Came over to pick up a hire car from Manchester, Vanessa coming in at 8pm. Dumping my kit in the car with a few hours to kill I heard that voice in my head telling me to get kitted up and go for a run, while that weak side said “what around the airport”.

When I started swimming in the sea last year I found the most effective method to doing the deed (it’s fucking cold in the Irish sea), of getting in, was to sort of pull all the plugs out of my brain. No, maybe that’s no what I do. Do you know those films were a car is filled with petrol and explosives, stuck in drive, then drives on without a driver to explode in the middle of the enemy camp, well it’s more like no. Actually it’s like you're an automaton or robot, and all you do is set the command ‘get into the sea’ or ‘put on your stuff and go for a run’ and you do! Maybe I’m over complicating this, I only went for a run fro Gods sake!


The Day's Training

  • Run 40min

Note:These numbers don't include warm up, which tend to be done at 25%, 50% and 75% of final weigh.

Notes

Not ideal training but it's something, the type of training which is more about doing the training than what you do training. Not sure why but back’s got stiff while running last too days, no doubt due to stopping training for a week. Sure it’ll soon work itself back to normal.
