The training has been going well, I've been doing a fair amount of cardio work everyday, & have been running every other day with Laura & Paul. Our normal 2.8 mile circuit we are getting quicker round & walking less, so a big improvement there. I am also being extra careful in what I eat, the net result is that I am now below 18 stone & am now in danger of wasting away!! I'll have to panic buy pork scratchings to make up for it & force feeding myself??
Cycling still remians a big part of my training & apart from cycling too & from work every day, this morning we met at the club at 7am & went out in the pouring rain & did a 47 mile ride. I had a moment coming through Westerham, when I hit a man hole cover & the bike slid away from underneath me, but fortunatly there was a high brick wall & god knows how I managed to push myself back up straight. It took my 3 or 4 attempts though & Kerry was so confident that I would do it that she didn't even brake!! She then had a road sweeping moment at very slow speeds where she hit a patch of some form of contaminate on the road & wayhay, she was off. (She is OK) I only managed one Banzai today on Joe!!
Just before the heavens open & just after I 'Banzaied' Joe
Our 47 mile route
Tonight I am meeting an old friend Nikki & we are doing a timed mile & a half run round a running track, 15 x 200 meter sprints, followed by a bleep test & a 500 metre shield run (I'm public order training next week)..... this is my day off as well!!
I'm smiling as I did it in 2min & 36 seconds
My pulse maxed out at 102% of maximum...... it's not easy!!
