Let Ironman training commence !

Or maybe not as the title suggests. Damn man flu scuppering my plans again. Training should begin tomorrow but have already had to bail on a run & a swim this weekend due to feeling rubbish.

First session planned was a coached swim session with Trianglia. I may still swim if i feel a bit better tomorrow but doubt I'll go to an endurance session, could get messy with nostrils running faster than I ever have.

Despite feeling crud yesterday thought I'd go out for an hours bike ride as the sun was shining & i needed some fresh air. Took it nice and steady & ended up being out for well over 3 hours & cycling 43 miles.
Ticked off 10 more churches from the plan as well

Well, yesterdays bike ride was it. Walking to work and back each day & doing a bit of digging at the allotment today is the sum total of exercise for this week. Will hopefully have more to write about next week.
Here's the route from yesterday -

Weighed myself the other day & found i have gone back to around 14st 4lbs. Not a huge surprise, what with Christmas & a lack of training. Hoping to be well under 13 stone by the time Ironman comes round. Should be fairly easily accomplished as i dropped well over 2 stone last year.

Thought I'd do a calorie burn count this year, not sure how accurate these things are but hey ho, if it keeps you motivated.
This week & year to date  = 4317
Good luck to everyone else starting their 30 week Ironman UK training plan tomorrow & everyone else who's started a 2013 get healthy plan.

Happy Training
