A month in St Moritz


July 27th, 2009 by



Contact has been sparse I admit, but the internet has been hard to come by I promise. I can confirm that I am still alive and kicking in St Moritz and have been doing my best to get into some decent shape. – I think I have managed over the past month and so I am looking forward to racing again this weekend at the Antwerp 70.3.

looking for decent scenery still.....

The week gone was as this:

Monday – swim 5k aerobic, bike 95k with TT efforts, run 10k steady

Tuesday – run 10k easy, bike 30k easy, swim 3k easy, run 5k easy

Wednesday – swim 5k solid threshold, bike 85k HILLY(i struggle on the climbs!), run 10k off the bike tempo

Thursday – bike 95k with 2*20min TT efforts (disc and all) – 51kph av on both occasions to give sub 19mins 10mile reps (I reckon that might get me on the all time Scottish list!!), run 10k tempo

Friday – hard 5k swim and a steady 70k hilly ride

Saturday – fast 3k swim, threshold bike and a run off

Sunday – long morning run, meeting up with Gav and Keano from the Irish camp who are pitched up down the valley in Pontresina.

However, there has also been some time to learn about ‘the Bob’ here in St Moritz – Blair and I have sampled them before in La Plagne for real …. bu that is another story for another day.
