Here we are, half way through the last month of Winter! In around two weeks it’ll officially turn to Spring in the Southern Hemisphere. The mornings and evenings are certainly getting that little bit lighter with each passing week. We’ve even had a couple of glorious Spring-like days already.
After a bit of a “training blip” I’ve got myself back into a rhythm. Over the past six weeks I’ve been hitting a session (or two) almost every day, and Strava tells me I’ve only had two complete days off in the last four weeks. That does include both cycling and running of course.
I’ve been trying to focus on quality sessions, rather than just racking up kilometres. It has been tricky getting the balance of cycling and running right. Over the Winter I have added structured intervals into some of my rides, both indoor and outdoor. I’ve also experimented with running intervals, varying the pace and adding “speed work” instead of just running for distance each time. This seems to be working out well as I’ve shaved a couple of seconds off my 5km PB time.
Strava also tells me I am about to reach 7000km for the year! 🚴♂️
To my readers in the Northern Hemisphere, how has your summer been so far?
