The usual running route at lunch with my boss. He muttered words about lets take it easy, and then we proceeded to run at sub 9 minute miles for some reason, despite constantly trying to slow the pace down. Nothing exciting, just a wet run in the rain.
The evening saw a return to the triathlon clubs swim session on a Friday night. The 8.30 start works really well with getting the kids to bed, but doesn’t work so well with the motivation. For an hour I tried to convince myself I didn’t need to go, but thankfully none of the made up excuses stuck and I found myself pool side.
What was surprising was that I think the run fitness and the extra swim session per week is really paying off. I wasn’t working that hard during the session, which really let me focus on my technique, and it felt like I was making some real progress.
