When I looked at this weeks training plan I mistakenly wondered out loud “Is this meant to be an easy week?”

This was then answered with just the tiniest hint of annoyance…

“Why don’t you come back next Sunday and let me know if you still think that was an easy week”

On a week last year when I’d trained hard and went to bed one evening tired Ais asked me…

“What’s on your plan for tomorrow?”
“I’m down to swim” I answered “but I’m really tired, maybe I’ll sleep on instead and skip it” I added hopefully.
What I was thinking was ” I don’t want to” the voice in my head sounded like a petulant child.
I waited for Ais to tell me to take it easy, rest Lovely Bob, sleep in, you need it, it’s been a good week so far, you’ve worked hard and deserve a lie on.
What she actually said was…
“Tell it to the guy who gets your Kona slot that you were tired and skipped your swim”

“It’s due to snow tomorrow Ais. I’m gonna do that long bike session you’ve scheduled in the training plan on the turbo instead”

“Yep that’s a good idea” she answered

“You had me down for a five hour outdoor ride so that’s probably a bit shorter indoors?” I suggested thinking that I’d maybe get away with three and a half hours on the turbo.

“No do the full five hours. And run off it for an hour too”


Anyway lets get on with the weeks training. Thursday was the highlight of the week with another big days training.
