Monday motivation

2 Jul

Another week, another training session…or five or six. Being Monday morning it was back to the pool for a 1km swim. I enjoy this swim session (apart from the early hour on a Monday morning) after a long run and a long cycle on the weekend. It wasn’t as busy as it has been for the past couple of weeks but I’ve been informed that water polo training has finished so that means more lanes for us.

Then after work it was back to the gym for a 55min cardio session – 15 min xtrainer intervals, 25 min rolling intervals on the treadmill and a 15 min hill program on the bike. Wowsers, it was one helluva workout. Welcome to Monday! It certainly let me know I was alive 🙂

I tried watching the Tour last night but it’s a struggle given my early starts. I think I’ll be referring to my Skoda Tour tracker app for the next 18 stages!

So, I’m almost at the end of my second month of  my Road to Port Mac program and have just been informed by SpartaJen, my awesome PT/friend, next week is week 16 which means my ‘proper’ training starts. This means that she’s upping the ante in my sessions to build fitness and speed. I hope she won’t be too hard on me 😉

      Hi Dylan, have a great Monday. I do 2 sessions a day 4 days a week (sometimes 5 days). Thats the challenge with triathlon training – trying to train in all 3 disciplines during the week. Sometimes there’s just not enough days in the week!

    I won’t be *too* hard on you 😉

    Your fitness is coming along so quickly; I have absolutely no doubt that you’ll be able to handle anything I can throw at you 🙂
