Not too much of an update for last week as it was a low volume recovery week.
I felt good all week and in some ways wanted more, but in other ways it was a recovery week and right that I should end it feeling recovered and prepared for the increased weeks ahead.
Just under 12 hours done 9inc strength/core) and mostly easy paced, letting the muscles recover from recent training.
It's nice to ease off a bit, as much for sanity as for approach and preparation of future training sessions.
One area that I am noticing needs improving more is my core/strength. It's not good enough and I am now consciously making this more of a priority.
Had a chance to wash the Tri bike and all clean again.
- Garmin Vector Power Meter
Delays with release now pushed out to "summer". Not ideal, this is a gadget that's high on my wish list but now not an option until mid season at best it seems, maybe even end of season.
The alternative here for me is still a Powertap, but you have to chose which wheel to get it in, and it's not cheap either. I'd want power for both training wheels and race wheels so it's not ideal, I will look at pricing this up though to see exactly how it compares against the Vector which will be around €1.5k it seems. Obviously there's software/accuracy issues if they've delayed it as they have so a bit of a concern there also.
Crank based options are not on my agenda as I'm not changing my crank, and again that would involve choosing which bike or swapping crank between each which wouldn't be ideal in my opinion.
- Race Entries
So more races opened up the last week or two. If anything these have helped to form my race season properly and my calendar is now nearing completion. I've still a couple changes to decide but will prob have closed out at end of this week and can update then.
I am in for a 10mile Run on 10th March in Dublin, and also entered Joey Hannan Olympic Tri on 29th April so 10 weeks to first triathlon of the season... Won't be long flying by!
Previous thoughts of Adare 10k Run aren't an option for me this week so that's out anyway.
- Back to the hard work
So this week picks up in volume again and away we go. I've a sports massage scheduled for an evening off as preventative maintenance more than anything. There are some important weeks ahead and I want to try ensure best consistency possible to maximise benefits.
Fazz here, I'm into all sports but primarily Triathlons, Formula 1 and Football. Welcome to my site which will have all of the above and more...
