After a couple of weeks away, back on the bike with a gentle circuit to Dunning and back via Bridge of Earn. Been so long that my GPS had zero battery! http://app.strava.com/activities/219849939

My name is John Fellows and it's been 11 days since my last training session....

This is the longest break I've had from training for around a year. More enforced than through choice, at least resting my injured foot and suffering the cold has given me some time to think though my plans for the winter and what my specific goals are for next year. 

When I'm 40. 

So I'm glad to be able to put down a marker on my ascent to full middle-age that I'm not on the scrap heap just yet. After a full season of training, with 2 Half Marathons, 2 Duathlons and 3 Sprint Triathlons under my belt, I'm ready to step up for the first part of 2015 and take on the Paris Marathon and the Staffordshire 70.3 Ironman as my main races for the year. 

Paris is in mid-April, with an 8 week gap before the Triathlon in mid June. The latter will be my first race as a Veteran. While (cold and plantar fasciitis aside) I'm in reasonable condition now, I know I have to step up both my quantity and quality of training before I'm ready in the Spring to compete. 

My specific targets for the year are:

- A sub-4 hour marathon 
- Top 75% in the Half Ironman 
- PBs of sub 1:50 for the Half Marathon, 50:00 for the 10k and new PBs for Sprint Tri

I think these are tough, but achievable targets for me, especially for the Marathon, where my only finish to date was a 5:12 in London 18 months ago (when I blew up at 19 miles). To achieve my goals I'll also have to get my weight down to below 15 stones for the first time since University, as well as hitting the training hard from now for the next seven months. I've signed up for the same winter races as last year so I can check my progress over the last year: the Monikie Duathlon Series over the winter (races in December, January and February), the New Year's Day Tri in Edinburgh and the Alloa Half Marathon in March. 

It's going to be a tough start to 2015, but I'm already excited about it. Bring it on!
