Changes at Team Dark Lord

I am not doing the Forest of Dean race and therefore not attempting to gain selection for the Commonwealth Games event in September.  It is time for me to make some choices and I have decided to focus on AdH. This means I need to do my bike work so need to step away from the long distance races and get those hard longer weekend rides in.

I haven’t mentioned open water swimming but the plan is for 2 sessions a week with one on a Tuesday evening. Getting motivated to start this seems to be a problem but I need to get swimming.

Come August I will focus on the Snowdon Marathon and do enough cycling to keep ticking over ahead of the World AG Duathlon.

I’m also on a diet, for the last year my 10km/5km pace has stayed static yet I am fitter than ever and taking minutes off my bike times. The one constant is that my weight is 5kgs above 2008. It has to change as I saw the pictures from the European Duathlon and I look FAT!!!!!!!

Other changes

The midweek run has been moved to a Tuesday so that Wednesday morning can be devoted to 800metre training for the middle distance runners in my squad. YES I will probably do some reps but most likely I will do some 5km and 10km work especially when joined by @M_J_Fisher.
