Olympian race

I have added a Race report for the Olympian race here: Race Report. I have tried to make it informative for people who want to do it as there are not many reports on this race online and it should be in a few bucket lists! You get to see some very unspoilt parts of Greece far away from the tourist traps.

Greece - here I come

From Crawley to Nemea to Olympia

Last Saturday I completed my first 12 hour track race.  The report is here.  This week I have been cycling to work all week, slowly for recovery.  I was feeling good so I went to the track Thursday for the club session.  After about 20 minutes My legs were aching big time, so I decided to call it a day and get more rest.  My A race is in 2 weeks time!  The Olympian Race; 180 km across Greece, so recovery is my top priority.  This race is a qualifier for the Spartathlon Race that I want to do in 2016.

This weeks training consisted of :
Sunday: Complete rest
Monday: AM cycle 14 miles PM cycle 14 miles
Tuesday: AM cycle 14 miles PM cycle 14 miles
