My sessions haven't been long but they have been increasing in frequency and slowly but surely my fitness level is increasing.
It was high fives all round when I ticked off a 500m non stop swim over the weekend and just today I had the satisfaction of seeing my bike computer tick over 29km indicating progress there as well.
Goal Event: Ironman 70.3 Hawaii
Date: 31 May 2014 (172 days away)
Distance: 1.9km swim, 90km bike, 21.1km run
Longest swim: 500m
Longest ride: 29km
Longest run: 1km
Given that I was so close to a round 30km ride, you may wonder why I didn't go around the block to achieve that milestone as well.
I have this theory, well tested during training for eight ironman events, that it's best not to swim a stroke more, turn the pedals one revolution further or run a centimetre more than programmed, and I don't.
Works for me!
Not a pedal revolution more than needed
