Feels amazing to be back training again, I’ve realised over the Christmas period that and un-organised lifestyle really does not suit me. I need structure, rules, planning and to sleep regular hours. Christmas was awesome, met some great old friends and spent some great time with my family, then again lucky it only comes once a year.
It’s now the first week of January and I always like to look for distance events in the calendar to aim for, it’s 11 weeks to Paddy’s day and 12 weeks to Easter.

If something unexpected happens and you have to switch a days training, that’s ok! the aim is to get it back on track as soon as possible and plan better to limit the risk next time out. Never skip cardio!
