The weekends are when my long bricks are scheduled and today was one of the biggest so far- 2:15 bike and 45 run.
Considering how much I hated last Sunday’s ride, today’s went pretty quick and I even got a PR on Lovedale exit climb!
I quickly changed at home for my run (my Tri kit doesn’t have pockets for me to carry the junk that I do for long rides so I wear a bike kit) and headed out away from home- I have learnt that if I loop around home I make up crappy excuses as to why I need to cut my run short,so if I run away from home I still need to return somehow! I hoped my brick run would be 7 minute pace at the most and I averaged 6:38 although that didnt take into account starting Strava and taking a fair while to stuff it in and out of my fuel belt so it may have been slightly faster.
Today’s run had me thinking about a few posts I’ve saw on Instagram lately about being comfortable with being uncomfortable- and that’s something I struggle with. As soon as I struggle I pull myself back so I have really been trying to test my own boundaries in training and get over being uncomfortable.
Considering the last three months or so I’ve only just started doing longer rides and bricks I feel that I’m making slow and steady progress so am happy with that- keep moving forward is all that matters.
Looking forward to MTC long course race on the 14th to see if my hard work is paying off!
