Had a great brick session on Saturday. 18.5K spin over Howth, 5K trail run up the cliff walk and then another 28.5K back over the steep side of the hill and out to Portmarnock.

I'm only managing one spin a week at the moment but have noticed that the increased running is having a beneficial effect on my cycling.

A review of last week looks something like swimming – poor week, cycling – dismal week and running wise - excellent week. I will eventually get all three balanced. Had hoped to do club duathlon Saturday but had a work party which I had to attend so unfortunately I’m still in darkness regarding my race fitness.
Objectives this week:
1. Three swims
2. Cycle 100 miles (accumulated)
3. Massage

@Fazz, been watching.. 4.5 - 5k+ swim sets

With the work you are putting down, I reckon its you that will have a target on your back for me to chase in some race or other

Dory, when is your pool opening again?!

Haven't reached the 5k mark but yes, average is 4.5k over a session.
Once you get into habit it becomes the norm.

Regarding performance, I'm not gonna kid myself I'm no front pack swimmer, but with the work hoping to be in chase pack now instead of miles back!

To put into perspective - Athy last year my Olympic swim was 30:xx mins so that's the level I'm coming from.
Oh and my 100 is still low 1:20's so you've around 10 seconds on me there alone!!!
Much work needed!

And first puncture on the road to greet me too
Had gone into a hole before I even knew it so just a pinch flat thankfully. Few mins later on the road again.

Smashing day for a brick.

Was there a 10km race on or in training?
Excellent but you can't leave us hanging with no time

@Bambaata - I can't honestly, I've got more time improvements to make up than you guys as you can see!

7 weeks to Race 1 thankfully... should go fast!
