This is the first day of my training for the The Croydon Half Marathon.
I was given a turbo trainer a while back and this morning I got to try it out for the first time – it was good fun. The workout was only 45 minutes but a great start to my half marathon training. I found a really fun video on YouTube simulating cycle training by CTXCvideos (https://youtu.be/zSFYRiqodvU), I put my laptop on the table in front of my bike and watched it while doing my workout. My internet dropped 3 times during the workout which was not great and my gear cable got really slack so lost part of my gears for the last 15 minutes but something to work on for next time. There are lots of other videos on YouTube as well so I will try more each week 🙂
Woke up this afternoon and official weight was 10 lbs heavier than I want so another goal to work on over the next 12 weeks…………STAY OUT OFF COOKIE JAR!!!!!!!
For last years Marathon training I did so little cross training so I am hoping to change that this year, We shall see 🙂
