12 Weeks to London…Week 5 (22nd-28th July)

Who would have though a 3 day stag session would impact on your training? 🙂 Suffering badly and being up in Dublin on Monday meant no training, while Tuesday the legs were still too tight to chance any workout at all. Attempted to get in some decent swim bike and run sessions ahead of the Kilkenny Triathlon, which was then used as simply a really hard training session. Poor week all in all, and on the back of a poor one the week before that too. Next week has to be a big step up in intensity and volume and the plan includes the Phoenix Park Formula 1 Duathlon on Wednesday and the National Series Loughrea Sprint Triathlon on Sunday!
