Saturday Dec 15 #

10 AM

Running 30:28 [3] 6.06 km (5:02 / km)
shoes: Salomon Speedtrax black/yellow

Twice around the base. Sun was out for the first time since I've been here but that didn't make it any more pleasant. Couldn't go out any earlier because I was on guard duty overnight.

Managed to avoid the route past the dead cat that I found on the way back to my room but will no doubt go past it again later :-(
7 PM

Rowing 21:29 [3] 5.0 km (4:18 / km)

There's something relaxing about cranking out a longer session on the ergo when I'm not trying to break records although the seat gets a bit uncomfortable after a while. Helps to have music playing even if my phone's speakers are substandard.

Friday Dec 14 #

7 AM

Core stability 30:00 [1]

Group yoga session.

Thursday Dec 13 #

7 AM

Windtrainer 20:00 [3]

The stat bike in the gym also has arm things so I guess it's a full on workout. Probably a good thing given the only resistance setting seems to be the equivalent of riding through sand. The toe clips are pretty useless since I cannot tighten them to an acceptable standard.
7 PM

Rowing 7:25 [5] 2.0 km (3:43 / km)

Broke my 2km PB again. Wasn't very hard.

Windtrainer intervals 16:00 intensity: (12:00 @1) + (1:00 @3) + (3:00 @5)

Just filling in time on the bike thing since I didn't have much luck with the weights. 8x30/90, first four and last two hard, other two not so. Should probably look at the RAF gym one day to see what they have there.

Wednesday Dec 12 #

10 AM

Running 10:00 [2]
shoes: Salomon Speedtrax black/yellow

Acclimatising myself to the humidity.

Rowing 10:00 [4] 2.54 km (3:56 / km)

Acclimatising on the ergo. They have stat bikes here! At least I can keep up the bike training. Also rowing because I really need blisters on my hands.

Tuesday Dec 11 #

11 AM

Road bike 1:02:26 intensity: (13:02 @1) + (46:52 @2) + (2:32 @3) 31.04 km (29.8 kph) +52m
ahr:129 max:152 shoes: Trek Madone 5.9

Last time on the bike before I head off to somewhere where my bike isn't. Just did the loop out to Armadale and back, into a headwind for the first part then with it for the latter bit.

I thought for a change I was going to get out of Kelmscott without being insulted but just as I was heading for the Tonkin underpass some boffin mistook me for a pile of sticks and in a manner befitting someone with very little brain functionality, decided to point out the fact to me. From my own perspective, I declined to acknowledge the callee, namely that I am not in fact a pile of sticks and why I would be confused for one I cannot begin to imagine. Perhaps I looked like something that the driver wanted to set fire to.

I don't know what it is about that section of Railway Ave/Corfield St alongside the railway that seems to attract the kind of person that feels the need to insult passing cyclists. I am more surprised now when it doesn't happen than when it does. Perhaps it is the metal in the tracks that acts as a magnet to their thought processes and they are unable to escape from the attraction, similar to how the bogans cannot escape from Armadale because their ugg boots cannot get enough traction to get out of the hole that Armadale lies in.

7 AM

Running 8:50 [5] 2.4 km (3:40 / km)
shoes: Salomon Speedtrax black/yellow

Surprise BFA! Except I wasn't overly surprised, I mean what else would we be doing at Lake Monger if not going around the lake? I didn't really need to do one having done a significant number of BFAs in the past six months (only need them annually).

The other two dudes opted for the 5km walk but I just smashed out the run because the walk would have taken too long even though I'm old enough to qualify for it. Tired legs from the weekend and no-one to run against meant it was not a super fast time.
