It has been a good few days of training – not massive progress, but small steps with the total volume increasing by around 5% – bike is up to 52 km and swims at 2000, run is the only drawback – but I have increased distance over 30 min – and by end of month have set target at 5km running – leg doesn’t feel too bad and now that I know my shoes are fine and orthotics in good condition, I am more confident.
Weight has been coming off slowly and I can notice a change even though scales not showing massive drops. Weekly drops of around 400g – not what I wanted, but every bit gone is good, and gives me the incentive to keep pushing on.
One thing I am relearning is that I need to be flexible with training – there are days when I need to swap sessions around to make it work, and this is what I did during my previous successful campaigns, so just need to tap into that and remember.
At the end of the day it is having one eye frimly focussed on the end goals, the big why, that keeps me moving forward.
