56 minutes on foot, couple of laps of queen's park and then down the grand union canal. Groin a bit tight on the run, stopped up just before the hour mark to be careful but felt like I could go on without to much discomfort. Took the whole of the first km to get into running gait.
Good marker session.

Run - forty minute run back to Whinfell, legs felt good, bit surprised about going downhill but momentum overcame fatigue. Momentum something I can't rely upon in the New Forest.

5.26 on bike, up into Chilterns and back. St. Albans, Harpenden.
Good ride, still not getting nutrition right, need to use countdown timer as reminder. New fuels working well as was new kit.
51 running around queens park, felt spaced for much of it, dehydrated, left calf slightly tight again.

Stroke excellent this morning, feeling more efficient and powerful, concentrating on reaching to the fullest extent with the catch. Need to develop rotation of chest as I pull through and remember to maintain the force of the catch through to the waste. Kick slightly improved, need to use fins to work on this.
Distance was ok, felt like I was going as fast as I could, although slower than previous session this week. Erratic 500m's alternately feeling good and strong and bad and weak.

Nice ride out to Staines-Windsor-Staines-Richmond (1 lap of the park)-Home
Run - 30 Shook of staggering legs after 1km and then ran quite freely. Felt pretty blitzed after half an hour and wondered how it will be possible to run a marathon.
Squash - W 4-1, first game couldn't get myself at the right speed, but found my legs by the second and then an epic comeback in the fifth.
