Lack of training

Congrats to all those who completed their tri's at the weekend, the weather must've made it a lot harder.

I, on the other hand, spent saturday and the Hampden Park to watch the drudgery that was on show. This was made slightly better with the corporate hospitality. I managed a decent turbo session on Sat morning, but done no training on Fri on yesterday.

So I will be aiming for a 30k bike run and brick session tonight. I have decided to leave work early so that I can get a decent session.

I always feel that if I miss a training session that I'm letting myself down. To be fair I have been training hard over the past few weeks so I'm not going to be too hard on myself.

Its still very warm and its brilliant.

    Know what you mean, I attempted to watch it, but pretty dull stuff, much nicer to sit in the sun. ( and I support rangers!!)

    Good luck with tonights, brick session, its stifling out there.

    I finish at 7 tonight and quick cycle home will do for me!!

    I was in the pool at 8am this morning - hardly drying myself I was straight onto the bike for a work commute and let this rather unGlasgow like weather dry me.......quite fantastic.

    Normally I wouldn't post a report on training, however last night I'm certain I had a bullseye on me.

    Set off on the bike and everything was fine(except from the cycle computer working). Left the road where I lived and there was some traffic lights. As I got to the lights they went from Green to Red, I still went although clearly the woman who was at the other side wasn't too impressed. We had some verbal exchanges but as a cyclist, you come to expect this.

    I then proceed to tackle some hills in a lower gear, fully seated. Yip everything going fine. heart rate ok, time was better than normal. Then as I was going downhill (very fast, although don't know how fast) some loser decided to tail me for about 500m. I felt very uncomfortable and tried to get him to pass me but no.

    Then came the best bit. I proceeded up some country lanes where its quite hilly and technical and not a word of a lie, I was acosted by cows. The farmer was moving the cows out of the field and a young bull took exception to my red bike. I therefore had this bull wanting a piece of my bike and me trying to jump over a ditch with bike in hand....... the farmer then blames me and tells me it a public road,..... yes like farmers pay road tax......

    Ok so set off again and I'm aero now, going down a rather long hill and a cat (yes a cat!!!) jumps out at me about 3ft into the air, legs pointing in every direction and it was spitting. Not a word of a lie it was like something out of you've been framed. I literally papped myself..... at that point I decided 20k was enough and set off home to go out on a run.

    Run was going fine, despite having taken on too much water and I could feel it sloshing around in the stomach and then bang..... I was sick.... twice.

    Stuck at it and done 8k..... I still had a good session but I really was laughing to myself at times.

    Oh well.

    They all must have read your earlier post, and placed themselves waiting for your arrival.

    At least you laughed about it !!

    very very funny training session, laughing out loud at that one.

    Very brave of you to even attempt a run, the way your luck was going!
