Minni v Dubai Dave
agree 2old - my recovery run was dreadful . I think they are hell coz we do them inbetween hard sessions - another session on already tired legs would be even more hellish. Or so I keep telling myself O4S: nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuts!!!!!
O4S- anyway what are you cycling up? Everest?
Chick- you're right about recovery runs but having never bothered with them before I'm starting to see the benefits of them .
You want crazy? I had to queue for a treadmill in the hotel gym at 4.30 this morning!!! What's with that? I had an excuse - my body clock was still on UK time, but what about everyone else? Anyway, I did a slow 6 miles, still feeling a bit rough but better than the weekend. Hopefully tomorrow morning I'll pick up the speed a bit.
Right now I am in the middle of a sales conference with about 500 colleagues - it's all VERY American, full of go, go, go and not at all restrained as we Brits would be . Nice hotel anyway.
Minni - 1400m is an odd distance for reps. May as well make it 1600?
2old: current plan is to cycle from home over the Mendips, Exmoor and Dartmoor to Plymouth. Ferry to Roscoff and cycle to Bayonne, near the Spanish border - about 750 miles and 20,000+ ft of ascent on my current route. Then join up with a small group of like-minded loonies to do the Pyrenean Traverse - 13 days in total with 25 cols in 9 days including all the famour Tour de Fcols - Aubisque, Aspin, Tourmalet, Peyresourde, Soulor etc etc.
Have sold it to Mt O4S as a gentle bike ride round France, while being a bit vague on the detail
intervals for me this evening, in some serious weather - see if you can guess which way the wind was blowing..
2m WU , 10 * 400 , 2m CD
1:43, 1:19, 1:35, 1:18, 1:40, 1:18, 1:45, 1:20, 1:45, 1:15
reasonably consistent in each direction and a real battle of the mind - pleased to complete that
Nice one Oompa
My run was rubbish. Gave up at 3.75 miles. Everything ached. Especially my glutes. I popped in to see a club mate who is a sports masseuse and he gave me a quick pummelling..
cracking run oompa!
keep your head up Spoons - you're due a change in luck shortly i had erm, something of an accident in the CD home this evening on the 2 miles home i passed 3 public toilets all 3 of them were locked!!
you can call me paula
25 cols Simon! And we are only carrying panniers [I hope] for the first 750 miles to Bayonne - after that we should have a support vehicle to carry luggage, although not 100% sure about that. Our trip back on the European Bike Express leaves us at Gravesend, so an interesting journey back to Bristol
Windy but dry this morning and it was actually starting to get light when I arrived at work on the bike - first time in ages
O4S- sounds like an epic trip!
MrZ (Paula)- nice intervals!
Oompa- very good pace on your LT run. Hats off, especially if you actually enjoyed it in those conditions.
I at last managed to get some proper sleep last night so hopefully the jetlag is well and truely over. 15m planned for tonight.
O4S: Totally nuts, I reckon BA has learnt not to ask
MrZ: Must have been windy for that sort of difference
It would appear that I'm going to be back in the UK a couple of months sooner than I expected, Easter is looking likely.
1.5K swim set done, will do hill repeats on the bike tonight.
DD - come to London and cheer us on!
