First run of a Saturday morning running group I set up through my club, Up and Runners NI. We did a nice 8.4 mile steady paced run. Legs felt strong and good.

Monday 24th November

45 minute turbo session - new block for front wheel makes it all much more stable. Need to get some more running done this week. Hard to get the training balanced.

Saturday 22nd November

Decided to run the NIVAA 5 mile race after all. PB because this is my first 5 mile race! Ran it in 40.34 - reasonably pleased with time since I haven't done much speedwork. Breaking 40mins will be a goal for next year.

45 minute fairly brutal spin class. Tried to save my legs a little just in case I decide to run the NIVAA 5 mile race tomorrow.

Thursday 20th November

Half an hour early morning turbo bike session. Have to get the settings adjusted - wheel not running as smoothly as it should. Good though.

Well, training started today for blog logging - did 30min spin class (short due to lack of participants) and then 5k run in 26 mins on the treadmill. Came home with an awful tummy bug - least said...

Just new to blogging

Hi - this is my first bloggy post. Hopefully you will enjoy following my progess into the world of half and full Ironmans. Winter training starting in earnest on Monday. I ran Berlin Marathon at the end of September 2008 in 4.10 with a 25 mins pb. Aiming next year for a 4 or sub-4 hour.
