UPDATE! 25 Oct 2010

It is with great sadness that I write this update. On the 25th October 2010 my little sister sadly passed away at the age of 31. She had bravely battled MND for 11 years. She had never given up and had achieved to much even after developing MND, winning the Open University award for achievement to gaining a degree. She will be greatly missed and will for ever be in our thoughts. Love you sis :D

Well where to start, it was all originally done as I was carry to much weight and wanted to loose it. Which I am sure it most peoples story begins, however after loosing the weight I actually started to enjoy running outside. Joined some forums (BCTTT & Runners World), there inspiration and helpfullness has helped me a lot. Now I am also swimming and commuting a couple of times a week to work on my bike! Now since 2011 I accomplished more than I thought I ever would or could. From 5k runs to an Ironman in 2014 and The Outlaw in 2015. In 2016 I am going down a different route, I will be trying Ultra's as you can see from my events I have already entered 3 so far. Now I thought wait a minute I need to have one more motivation and that people is my sister Emma. Since the age of 20 she was very unfortunate and developed MND (Motor Neurone Disease), she is now 31 years of Age. Her health has deteriatated over the years and we nearly lost her last year. My mum had to give up her work and become a full time carer for my sister and my dad takes over the duties when he comes home from work. All the races I do will be in aid of my sister and all money raised will be donated to MND to help raise awareness and research in the disease. Thanks for all your help and enjoy my training blog,

I am a fish

3rd swim session of the week and 2nd double session of the week.

Legs still felt a bit on the sluggish side. Even though I had yesterday off think the legs were still wanting more time off after the massage. I knew better of course :D

I did however forget my fins (yes my pool allows them :)) As I forgot them I reduced a bit of the warm up set (100m) as did not want to destroy my legs completely.

Then it was onto my main set which was

All as CSS/100m+5 seconds with a CSS/25m as recovery unless specified otherwise
-
2x50m as CSS/100 -3 seconds (@1:15 mins)
-
100
200
300
200
100
4x50m as CSS/100 -3 seconds (@1:15 mins)

Again success, legs were done but not as bad as I thought they would considering how they felt at the start. Hopefully this is progression in the swimming area. fingers crossed.

Next up was the turbo, this was done in the evening had a 40 min to do. This should not be too taxing.

Main set consisted of

5x15s @ 110rpm off 60s
5x30s @ 110rpm off 60s
5x60s @ 110rpm off 2mins

I can safely say that this was not a bad set, legs felt good afterwards.
