One week to go until the ITU World Championship Series in Hyde Park
I am now back at home preparing for Hyde Park. It’s nice that it’s so close, it’s very handy not having to travel so far. Hopefully the weather will be good.
I tend to take a day off every couple of weeks. On average, I’ll swim five mornings a week, ride four times a week and run five or six times a week, usually in the afternoons. I mostly train for swimming through a swimming club – I don’t do an awful lot of open water swimming. I’d usually look to cover a distance of 4,000 – 6,000. I’ll also use a gym in Cardiff a couple of times a week and see my physio once or twice a week as it’s good to get consistent checks.
In-between training, I spend a lot of time walking the dog. It’s a good way to warm up and down.
I’m still training with my Suunto Red Arrow. I’ve also got a T3c pink for more casual training. I get lots of comments on it actually as it’s so bright. For the more complex stuff, I’m still sending data to sports scientists who check my data to make sure everything is okay.
