Trowse 10K

Well, after last weeks disaster I have had a fantastic week of training & tick off another achievment.

Monday - 25.39 mile Bike ride

Tuesday - 27.01 mile Bike ride

Wednesday - 1.03 mile swim

Numerous 25m lengths of front crawl including a new PB of 2 x50m front crawl lengths.

Friday - 9.14 mile Mountain Bike ride

Saturday - 29.31 bike ride with Karl & Fran - Some cheeky hills on this route

Sunday - 2.93 bike ride to trowse

Trowse 10k Run. I was dreading this but absolutely loved it, even the hill that you have to go up twice.  Took a real steady pace & finished in 58.48 minutes.

I had two goals in this race.

1 - Finish without walking
2 - Complete in 1 hour or less

So, i'm chuffed to bits & feel i've now also turned a corner in my running.

To enter this race cost £13. Must be the best value event i have taken part in so far. Chip timing, nice medal, goody bag full of chocolate etc, free tea & coffee, really well organised. Brilliant, thanks guys. Heres the website

Feel really inspired to do more 10k runs now, might even go for the Norwich half marathon later on in the year.

Photo time

Around 6k

I did enjoy it, despite the facial expression

Me & the boss

I like medals

What else has occured this week? Did my first volunteer day at Norwich park Run which was fun.

Bike toolkit arrived so i'm all set for trying to learn how to maintain my own bikes.

Trying to find a racing bike for Arleya so she can do a Triathlon next month. If anyone knows of a cheapy going somewhere, please give me a shout.

So, legs feeling fine, afternoon now  reserved for watching the Paris - Roubaix road race

Trying to raise money for Help for Heroes so please sponsor me if you have a spare couple of quid. heres the link to my donation site.
