Woke up early this morn to sunshine (honestly!) so headed off to Miller ground for a steady open water swim in Windermere.
|A Mill pond flat lake Windermere|
|The Langdale Pikes across the water.|
Home for breakfast and a rest then headed out on the bike for a couple of hours. Wanted to see how my body would cope with a longer ride and picking up the pace a little. This would give a good indication how well I was recovering 2 weeks after Celtman.
Did just under 50km in a couple of hours. Legs felt fresh, felt good out of the saddle working hard up some hills and similar picking the pace up on some flats. Most of the ride was super steady though.
The route I did is here http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/110667329 along with a load of other training rides in the lakes. Open to the public so feel free to browse if your looking for ideas.
Looking good to start with some base training next week then. Starting to get psyched for Sep 30th now! Wasdale Tri has been entered and it looks awesome!! Bring it on.
