On Monday I joined up to Havering Tri Club, and went for my first training run with the triathletes. We did 8.84 miles which included 4 hill sprints- quite a large training session compared to my usual weekday plod! One of the ladies I was running with, turned out to be a neighbour who lives about 5 doors along from me! No excuses for a cycling buddy now!
Wednesday was my last evening swimming session, as I will be moving to the advanced group on Saturday mornings. The dreaded calf cramp returned and I struggled to swim with my leg ceasing up- apparently calf cramps mean a lack of salt in the diet and I’ve been advised to eat a packet of crisps before swimming- I’m not really a fan of salty foods so I’m not sure about this one!
I did my first (partial) run commute home from work on Thursday, in which I followed the Central Line to South Woodford. It was a very windy evening and there was a huge hill after 3 miles, I had to pause to check the map a few times but eventually made it to the tube station. Now I know the route, I can extend it by another mile or so to take me further along the line.
I ended the week with a fantastic run, yoga event and hot pilates class.
