Hey there, time for a check in! Hope you and the family have had a nice summer and enjoyed the heat?
The aquathlon went very well 3 weeks ago. The swim ended up being incredibly tough (waves, current etc.) meaning I had a big lead into the run and a 1:23 trail half was enough to win by quite a margin in 28 degree heat!
It was made all the more dramatic by the fact I had an atrial fibrilation the day before requiring a heart re-set (cardioversion) under general anaesthetic. Not something that has happened before and doctors weren't too concerned (had full ecg and blood tests etc and there were no further issues) but something I'll be keeping a close eye on.
Since then I've been really enjoying the running out here in Sweden with 3x100k weeks including:
2k's (done on a trail loop with c6m elevation gain per 2k, I gave myself 500 jog between as they were quite tough!)
1k's (done on asphalt and trail loop with minor elevation)
Not strictly part of the cycle but it turned out there was a very competitive trail half marathon today so I got involved and was pleasantly surprised with a 1:16 despite 22 degrees, 30k/h wind, 150m elevation gain and mostly windy single tracks in the woods!
