WEEK 1 NorthFace

NorthFace 100 Picture from Visit Blue Mountains

A New year and a new challenge . After the holiday break and travels , it is back to work and  the start of training . I had a bout of flu so it was a slow start.

Week 1 . 12 January 2015 .Lesson 1 start slow and steady . On Monday I was still pretty weak from the flu and so it was a no activity day.

Tuesday 13 January . A bike ride to cross fit and as it was hot it was a 30 minute cross fit session for me and then a ride back home , easy spin. I found it pretty taxing and the HR and breathing was a little harder. But I was glad I was able to make a start. The legs were feeling sore the next morning.

Wednesday 14 January 2015. It was an early very slow run to work from home about 11km. Managed it in 1.20 going at about 7minute pace and walking the intersections.

Thursday 15 January 2015. Another ride to Cross fit and a harder session of about 40 minutes and then rode home again spinning back .

Thursday's WOD
Friday 16 January 2014 . Felt really sore and did a short 30 minute run and just under 5km.

Saturday 17 January 2015 .No cycling just cross fit session for 45minutes on a hot humid Perth day.

Saturday's Hot WOD
Sunday 18 January 2014. The first long training session for Northface with the hydration pack .Got to Kings Park for a 7am start and basically trying to do as much altitude as possible in 2 hours. Walked and jogged only 7km in 1.40 minutes but managed about 700m going up the Kokoda trail 10 times and the DNA tower about 7 times .It was pretty humid and I did not drink as much as I should have. Just glad to have got through the session.Sore quads and calf's from the combination of climbing the trail and the Cross fit session.

The week was about 10 hours of activity . A nice slow start.
