With a 400m time of 7.26… 600 should take me… somewhere around 12mins. 18minutes?! Where exactly did I think I was going?? Next race (last of season) is a pool based. So i’ve got a year to practice!

Last few days: Sat – gym – running and weights
Sun – Rest
Mon – AM: 3x10min bike, 10min run,
PM: 30min run and 3x3running drills
Tues – AM: 600m, 5x100m, 400m, 5x100m.
Good swim this morning, 100m’s seem to be hitting around 1min50, as opposed to 1min58/2min – good signs

Sorry for the boring posts – fun ones shall be on their way in a few days!

I'm an NCTJ Journalist and work at Cycling Weekly. Previous to this, I was the Editor at Total Women's Cycling. I've also dabbled in marketing and copywriting - having been Marketing Coordinator and Social Media/Content Editor at Evans Cycles. My first job was working on a local newspaper.  I've written for a variety of titles on a freelance basis, too. I got into cycling when I entered my first triathlon in 2010. I now race crits, road races, time trials, and do a lot of track training for not very much track racing.
