Tried a easy 40 minute jog today after one week of a rubbish viral illness (common cold).
Not too wheezy, heart rate behaved itself and I managed to keep the pace around marathon pace (which I’m hoping is 9.20min/mile because I’d like to run a 4hr marathon at IM Copenhagen.)
So all in all, one week off hasn’t completely ruined me. Will be interesting tomorrow when I see what a turbo and a swim session feels like.
Next week is the last ‘free’ week before the 24 week ‘plan’. Sorry for all the inverted commas, don’t know why I’m doing that.
I’m on call next weekend so don’t expect to have the weekly hours up by much but that may be a good thing when recovering from a week laid up sick.
Starting to get the butterfly feelings about the whole Ironman endeavour! I’m ready to begin!
Bring it on!
