Cycling 1:43:36  40.38 km (2:34 / km)
I just did the extended Johnnie Fox's loop in the nice sunshine. I kept it pretty chilled at the start and at the beginning of the climb. Then a proper cyclist, in full kit, passed me so I pushed to get back on his wheel and then passed him when he got scared of a stray mini peacock and practically stopped! Stayed ahead of him to the top of the climb and then he just sat on my wheel to Johnnie Fox's. I don't think I've ever been out of the saddle as much as this on the climb before and it felt absolutely amazing to push hard! This ride actually flew by and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am really enjoying all of my training at the moment which is something that feels so good to say!
Cycling 3:14:49  65.63 km (2:58 / km)
Long cycle with Laurence and Cillín. I felt really good for all of this which is surprising because I normally have a few bad patches. We were going a lot easier than I normally cycle at though. Felt good to ride with the lads though, and I really enjoyed the whole day! We cycled Glendoo-Sally Gap-Ballinastoe-Djouce-Enniskerry. Nice long ride, we'll have to try and do a 100k sometime over the summer!
Swim 44:27  2.0 km (22:14 / km)
Nice easy swim to try and stave off the legs a bit. I enjoyed it, and I had to throw in small bits of effort going past slow people. I always feel amazing after swimming, I should definitely keep it as a regular part of training going forward.
Cycling 1:08:04  27.75 km (2:27 / km)
I was meant to go training early morning before my exam but that never happened. I was happy that I managed to get out after, it was a nice blow out before going out. I just did the standard Texaco ride. Small bit of rain on the way out before a hailstorm on the way back. It was quite unpleasant and painful but also pretty epic, just grinding away. I enjoyed this immensely.
Cycling 2:46:09  63.97 km (2:36 / km)
Longest ride so far I'm pretty sure. Nice day for it and actually enjoyed it a lot! The climb from Crone to Glendoo was rough as always but got a new lease of life on the descent and I was cruising after this. The last 10km were pretty tough though, quads were starting to struggle. Good training day, happy with it until Ruadhán bested me by 4km! Easy swimming day tomorrow!
