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 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.
