It’s been ten weeks since my first & last asthma attack at Outlaw.
Due to limited exercise I’ve gained almost a pound of weight a week, lost most of my fitness, passed my annual police fitness test and got a bucket load of inhalers to take daily. But had a good recovery break ! 😃
I’ve got back out on active duty for an interesting cross county rural crime op and also slightly jealous of the Cricklade half marathon runners as I was on traffic control for them.
So time to crack on and look forward to 2017. As usual my race calendar is looking fairly plump & challenging with a variety of new events & locations alongside a couple of previous favourites like Loch Ness Marathon.
The countdown has started, training has commenced this week with a physical prep session, easing back in gently I have a 1 mile swim, 25 mile bike ride and 5km run to complete. I’ll keep going to beginners yoga as it should help my breathing. A few 10ks and mini sportive to look forward to this autumn which will be training events and socials.
Now I know why I was performing below par, have a diagnosis and treatment it’s time to get cracking and back to consistent steady training this side of Christmas.
The triathlon countdown has begun with ironman Hamburg identified as my A race for 2017.
All systems go………
