Went swimming last night
Going for a slow 3 miles in about 1/2hr.
Cycle 13.1m tomorrow (Im going to cycle the course to familiarize with it)
Not sure if I should do anything Thurs and Friday, Im sureIll have to relax the day before.
I will let you know how I get on, promise!Cheers for all the advice!
Hi Tim, I went lap swimming on Monday evening and that helped a little. Then went running yesterday and did 5m at 11.30mm (as a recovery jog) but felt very tired and legs were a bit achy. Had a sport massage a couple of hours earlier too. Today is much better already. Funny thing I found is my right toes hurting me, the three in the middle only.
I started running to improve my overall fitness for triathlons but Im enjoying it so much I m goign to do at least 1 or 2 running events a month as well my original plan of one tri a month!. Im finding running so rewarding and addictive. I also enjoy xc perhaps more than road.
I wasnt always this 'wise' I have learned my lesson well because I got injuried twice and am being ever so careful. I was trying to push myself below the 9.50mm but it was ever so hard so decided notto risk and stick to my rythm. It's my first running event so still plenty to learn and improve.
See you mention the South Downs so you cant be too far from me. Do you belong to any club, are you planning any races? We might come across each other one day
