I haven't been enjoying running so far this year, but today felt good (slow but good). Z1/Z2 run which I stuck to - weather was prefect and the run felt very easy. For the first time in months I had pain in my achillies late evening. I really hope that its not returning.

Distance 7.7k - 49mins (ouch) - 65m climbing

Day 6 saw my first run, 30mins of Z2 running. 5K ticked off.

Day 7 was 1hr ride. I should have completed this in Z2 but it was the first time I've been out on my TT bike since IMUK. It's quite amazing on the flats as with very little enough you're hammering along at 36kph - struggle to hit 31kph on my road bike. Aerodynamics - enough said. 27.9k ticked off in an hour.

Swimming going well, bike feels good. Run still feels terrible.

Swim was ok after 400m today - nice and smooth. But today was a long one seeing as it's my second swim of the campaign - 3k swim, tick.

The bike - now training on the TT bike again - back to the weird postion. First ride on a turbo! I hate the turbo - so boring. Anyway 12.1k in 30mins - average HR136. Looking forward to my Saturday ride even though its only a short one.

With the run and swim that went better than expected I had thought as I continued to cycle that today's brick would be ok also. Wrong it was quite unpleasant. Rubbish average speed and high HR than expected, my legs hurt up the first hill! The run was also not great with an avg speed of 6:03 per km and 155bpm avg. Even though I'm in my Z2 (high end) should be 5:40per k? Legs hurt again. All in all a bad session.

Bike
12.1k - 23.9kph avg - 152bpm

Run
2.7k - 16min - 6:03per k

Day 2 - 2.5k swim

Today didn't start well when I turned up to to pool at 06:30am to find that it's not open till 09:00am - whoops! Anyway went back at 9 to start the longest swim set since 22nd July. In the past two weeks I've managed 4 swims all 1500m and the day after I was knackered due to lack of swim fitness. So as you can imagine 2.5k this morning was a little daunting. First 500m hurt but after that things seemed to click into place and the rest of my swim felt quick good, which shocked me. How will I feel tomorrow?

So 2.5k ticked off in 56mins.

300wm
8*50m drills
12 * 100m 20sec rest
8* 50m drills
200 cool down
