I was to write the “week summary” post, but then I realised that it’s already Tuesday and I don’t remember everything from last week anymore. Instead, just quick catch up with my progress and few words about me getting too addicted sometimes.
One of my goals for this year was to compete in any cycling event. I’ve been searching for something that would suit my schedule for weeks and finally I’ve decided to give London Revolution a try. While it's not a true race, it still looks like quite an adventure and I want to be part of it. At least once
The lazy time is finally over. Jokes aside, I wanted to have a calm week before the storm. I've been still going to the gym almost everyday, but haven’t done much swimming or running and on top of that I only got my bike back on Wednesday. But I finally know what I’m standing on in terms of Virgin Active London Triathlon and I've set up next four weeks of training.
I've finished my 4 weeks long running program, not missing a single workout (hell yeah!). It seemed difficult at start, but I don’t even know when these last 4 week have passed. On the other hand, I broke my bike on Thursday and I still don’t have it. I hate public transportation, busy trains and waste of time just sitting and waiting for my station. But hopefully today I will be able to resume my home - work - home cycling.
Don't know if this was a good day or not. I broke my bike, I almost died on the gym, I skipped cycling session and still had to force myself to go for a run. Little tired, but still going.
Those first months of any activity, when you feel stronger and stronger almost on hourly basis are most rewarding thing for beginners. What’s hard is to notice real progress week to week after that initial burst. You just go with your program, adding that small distance or extra weight, but it’s usually difficult to spot the difference. But today I’m truly powerful!
I just cannot believe in all that tweets, posts and articles stating how shocking it was to find out that Lance Armstrong doped. The amount of hate and jokes (ok, few of them are actually funny :D) is just ridiculous and suddenly he is not a hero anymore. Either people are blind or they have really short memory. Anyway, my few thoughts about whole “doping scandal” and Oprah interview.
I don’t know if what I’m doing is the most optimal workout routine. Wait, I know it’s probably not optimal routine, but I’ve decided to stick with it for a while. Running, swimming and weight training puts me at around 10 sessions per week. On top of that, almost 200 km on my bike. More than enough for me.
