Tri Club Spinning session, 1hr and lots of hill climbing and intervals as some one mentioned doing the Alpe d'Huez Triathlon.
Tuesday 2nd Feb: At hospital with missus again! Just a spin session and 1hr 20 in gym 5000m row 19.30mins.
Wednesday 3rd Feb: Just cycled to work and managed to get home before the blizzards arrived.
Thursday 4th Feb: 2hrs + hard in the gym. 50 mins on gym bike averaging just over 2:20/mile. 10,000m on row machine 39mins 30 seconds which is about 1:58.6 mins/500m average and beats my previous best by about 5 mins!!!!! My back was killing after this as the drag factor at Middleton gym was miles better than the Rochdale ones (DF 200+) . The resistance is harder but it is easier for me to keep a good speed. 30min easy on cross trainer.
Also swam with Rochdale Tri club and after a 20 mins warm up I found out it was Time Trial night again. I thought I would get cramp again like I did last time and not complete more than 2 lengths but during the warmup I felt fine. First up was 400m (16 lengths) with 3 in each lane setting off 10 secs apart. Took the first 100m fairly hard then rested for 200m and hit the last 100m sprinting. On the middle 200m I tried to overtake one of the guys but I ended up being cut up and had to stop for a while so lost a bit of momentum. I ended up with a time of 5mins 30 which is ok but I was aiming for under 5 mins which I should do easily if I hadn't been to gym before had. It was then 50m sprint ( 2 lengths) which I did in 30.5 secs thats without a dive and starting from the wall. Again a very good time but wanted under 30 seconds. Hard nights work.
Took possession of my new car which is a mazda 6 estate so that I can ferry my bikes to events all over the country :) I really mean its got 4 doors so its easy to get the baby in and out of the car seat.
Friday 5th Feb: Cycle to work and eat lots of crap day.
I've just bought a track bike :( When will this cycling obsession stop costing me money):
