Sun – 10min elip, 10k bike, 25min run (20min tempo), 10k bike (some 30-60sec intervals)
Mon – 3x100m, 2x200m, 2x300m, 2x500m, 200m cool down

I have become infected with a desire to sign up for races. This morning I signed up for Woking Aquathlon, 400m swim, 4k run – very much excited!

Training today went really well, I guess with swimming I find a lot of the battle is mental, but having done 1.5k race on Saturday, I found I needed so few recovery breaks than I have in the past, in fact today’s session, I was in the pool for 55min according to my watch – not bad for 2.4k.

I think a lot of this uber positivity is coming from the sun, combined with a generally good day of productive morning revision, successful training, a relaxing and enjoyable trip to lewes with my housemate, followed by more productive revision. All in all, a good day so far =D

I am an NCTJ qualified journalist and copywriter with a year’s worth of experience as a local hack, and just under two years’ of experience working in the marketing department for a highstreet retailer. I currently work at Cycling Weekly, previous to this I was the editor at Total Women's Cycling. I do a little freelance writing alongside my job, and have written for Runner’s World, Triathlete’s World, Sussex Sport, Basingstoke Gazette newspaper, the Brighton Argus, Steve Hart Photography and 2LK Design. I blog to record the activities in my life which I don’t want to forget when I’m old and wrinkly (let’s hope the internet never melts down – but it seems safer than a notebook) – to let old friends and family know what I’m up to, and because I enjoy playing with words. I’m always looking for new projects – and you can email me should you ever need someone with an energetic passion for word doodling.
