Yeahhhh and he's back on track! Legs...starting to niggle, or anything! Thank you right leg for deciding that you want to participate in this
5 mile in 58:46 starting off slowly and getting faster. Avg pace 11:45, Avg speed 5.1mph.
Check this out though- magical gps watch says best pace 6:46 at 8.8mph so time to change categories and race with peter lol (bet it was when went past a garden and dog went freaky causing me to mildly poo myself and hastily yet bravely...leg it)

Just seen the videos and photos of the Birmingham selection day. Lovely photos of lovely people and a really good day in the snow.

Realising that need to shift some bulk to aide the running-so went swimming for 30 mins @ 6am this morning and felt really good. Been trying to learn the frontcrawl as I've signed up to London triathlon and breast stroke don't work in the wetsuits. Reverted to winter wonderland again in Wales and the kid inside of me is smiling away while the adult is hoping it's gone for the long run Sunday otherwise it's the dreaded treadmill.

Good running and swimming sessions done - hopefully you are out on the bike later!
07/01/2011 at 11:47
Yeah would love to that's the ideal dream . Thanks for your support steve. My bike is spending some quality time with mr halfords getting spokes fixed after a tumble with mischievous clip pedals. Can't wait for the spring and some long cycles.

Tomorrow's session- 3 miles including hill session or circuit. If I do the hill does this mean going up a hill for 1/2 mile then jogging back down? No problems with finding hills in the valleys.

OMG he's thinking about triathlon already!

Yep mr organised me...not. My swimmings even weaker than my running so need to work on it otherwise i'll be drinking most of the dock water come July. Nice to have a change from running to.

Could you find the photos & videos and get them to work USB, soup and seren? They worked on my wifes I-pod but they dont exist when i use the laptop.

re the hills, I have just posted something on Alison's thread re a suggestion - I would suggest a 200m hill and the effort should be more akin to a 5k race pace type effort rather than sprinting.

Brilliant re the triathlons..............I have just the recovery session for you for after Paris...............there is a series of aquathons at Bryn Bach park once a month starting at the end of April........only a 750m swim followed by a 5k run................the first one at the end of april is usually only 400m swim as its colder..........

I can guarantee you if you mangae to complete an april open water swim at bryn bach parc then every other open water swim afterwards will be easy and warm

I've seen the video now................can't believe how snowy it was there..............supprised that anyone could run fast in that

good luck with the hills you say  not difficult to find a hill

07/01/2011 at 21:20

Hills tomorrow?  Where does it say hills?  Has it changed?  

I cut and pasted the sub 5 schedule and printed it off - but it doesn't say hills!  (don't have fancy stuff like a garmin to download to).

I'd better go scurrying back to IronMin to see what she thinks. Especially as I sneaked in a naughty  4 miles today instead of resting.

they seem to be changing the schedules at the moment
07/01/2011 at 21:26
I've just looked Seren.  Its all changed, the reps and even the long run miles.  It said 8 miles for Sunday but now says 9. Aarrrgggghhhhh!!!!   I'm going back home to where I belong.

seems strange that they didn't think to change them before everyone started training for Paris or London................not sure whats happening at RW HQ at the moment...............

I will stick to my mentors instructions.......

07/01/2011 at 21:34
thanks Steve I will do that in the morning as there is the perfect route for that nearby. Will let you know how it goes.
