Week 3

Another good week of training. Managed to rock up 6 hours 45 mins. The weather was so bad this week here in Germany so all the training was done in the gym and pool. We have had a fair bit of snow in the area this week (much like everywhere in Europe!) and today was really bad with ice. We had a ski day planned in a ski area 2.5 hours away from my house, and Michelle and i left at 0600 to drive there. Turns out it was raining all night and morning, but the temperature was - 2.0 C so there was ice everywhere! You know its bad when the Germans close the road, but thats what they did. They closed the main Autobahn from our house going south to the slopes so that was the end of our ski day. I even done a double training session yesterday to make up for missing it today!
Ended up back in Mannheim at 1000 dressed up like a twat in ski clothes!

Monday - Rest
Tuesday - X zone Black time trial - 2.5km run, 1.5k row, 3km bike - 26.40, then weights etc. 1HR. 5 mins
Wednesday - missed session as car had to go to shop and i got the train home
Thursday - 8km run at the gym.
Friday - bike, run, row gym session. Done some extra time too. 1HR 20mins
Saturday - AM swim session. 1000 m time trial - 23.5mins, then finished up to 70 laps/1750m. 55mins
Sunday- no ski! gym session. 5km with 500m light (0600 per km) 500m hard (04.48 per k), 1500 row. 55mins.

TOTAL TIME - 06 hours 45 mins.

NOTE - Sunday session was good! looks like i am getting faster as i held the 04.48 pace well. :)
