Another day in Paradise

My personal blog about my life and especially my way back to compete in an Ironman Race

another one

This past week has been again a lot of running, only 2x managed to get on the ibke - 1x1h and 1x 92km at a good base pace. The runs - 1x24km with some km as fast as 3:45min/km -, 1x 10km, 1x21km the latter ones really easy at around 4:45min/km pace. Swimming 3x ... 2x1km and 1x2.5km, I'll try to get out tomorrow for another 20km run at base pace and a swim.
Tonight I have been busy with forwarding the next step of the new Joomla! tricoach component I am currently programming, a tcx file parser showing your data in a nice graph and if you lilke a map also whith your workout's route. The next days I will probably save that as an additional feedback of an athlete together wiith a workout (as image plus the average and some calculated values like based on NTP). Here is a previev on youtube

in the making

this week still quite busy, I am currently working on the next version of my triathlon (and the new one any endurance sport) coaching component, the other one has become a bit rusty. The new one is for the latest Joomla 3 series and is based around jQuery Fullcalendar and single workouts instead of a whole week. That yields a lot more flexibility and the views can contain a lot more info on less space, allowing one to "do" everything from one place quickly. Here is a link to a quick uncommented preview . Training was good this week in terms of running - summed up to 80km, the knee is fine with it at the moment. On the bike much less and on the swim - 4.5km swim and 175km, respectively.

days passing quickly

wow, the last 6 days since my last post have past so fast! What's been up - These past days I got 1x50, 1x75 and 1x45km in on the race bike as well as 1x20km on the Mountainbike, with everything at very easy pace (with Hotel guests, Little by Little we now get to the winter Season with more active People coming over to Fuerteventura to escape the colder weather up North) and quite some running all easy as well - 1x18km, 2x10km, 2x7km and 1x12km. Swimming is more or less regular now - I try to get in 1000 - 1500m at least every other day, today I should be able to get into our olympic pool soon before placing the covers to Keep it warm during the night.

...getting into some kind of rythm now, I think with my training. Yesterday ran 10km at easy pace, did 22km on the Mountainbike and swam 1000m, today went 65km on the race bike, including some over-gearing up the hill the steep side to Vallebron and swam 1500m. Tomorrow is running day, again...

nice weekend

I had a nice Training Weekend - Friday could run twice, very easy but it summed up to 18km,swam 3km,  Saturday went out on the bike 132km through the western mountains of Fuerteventura, swam 2000m and today I ran 21km at very easy pace plus 1500m swimming. Hope, I can keep the rythm and I will not only loose some weight but also get fit quite soon and feel like a real triathlete Laughing.
