Last night I worked out how many training hours my 27-week Ironman programme amounts to. The weeks build from 9 or 10 hours up to 20 hours on a 3 to 4 week cycle. Over the 20 weeks I will be training for 280 hours which is the equivalent of 7 40 hour working weeks. Phew, it sounds a lot when it is put that way. Some days I do tire a bit and I try to sleep some lunch times but today I had lots on my mind and couldn’t settle. The consequence of this is that at the moment I really do feel like a sleep.
Tonight’s turbo session shouldn’t be too taxing and I have just bought myself an Ipod Nano so, I am hoping to listen to a couple of pod casts whilst exercising. However, I am not a technical guru and I suspect it won’t be as straightforward as I hope and I will end up with the TV on whilst turboing instead. Still, it’s always nice to buy yourself a treat and this one was a real bargain.
