i have been a bad blogger.
have i mentioned that i really hate friggin winter. although in the grand scheme of things i really have nothing to complain about. perth has shitty weather for maybe three months max and even then i can probably get a ride in every weekend and run most days. but it has been extremely cold - it was 1 degree the other morning forf#*&sake !!!! and now it is really wet and i just dont like it. and my electricity bill was humungous.
i rode my trainer for the 90 minutes last sunday. i knew it was going to be extremely boring but i wasnt prepared for just how much harder it is than the open road. for the next few weeks i plan to ride the trainer three days per week and i am taking the mountain bike on a trail ride sunday - i will post pics. i am struggling to find consistency with my training while winter is here.
i am sad today because cadel's race is over. now that lance is done with the tour i hope he takes up triathlon. that is something i want to see.
i miss racing.
my strength personal training sessions are just about over. i have one leg session tonight and the last upper body monday. it has made a difference and i have gained some great workouts that i can do at home. i will be glad to go back to having monday as a rest day and running on friday.
i have discovered these great breakfast cookies that i make every week. when i do i cannot stop eating them. my boss says they look like big dog turds.
i have decided that i am having five days off from all training and a weekend of casual outdoor activities (starting next tuesday) before starting a program that will lead me into the triathlon season of 2010/2011.
