Minni v Dubai Dave
Minni, is Ruth a nutritionist? Are you taking advice generally or just specifically for the VLM? I'm really interested in hearing more. Also, what is shunting? Is it helping?
Chick, scorching paces Sounds like you're feeling in a great place, that's brilliant to hear!
Barry, really well done on the x-training session. Another idea to break up the 3hr sessions is to alternate between rower, cross trainer and bike. Last year I did 3 sets of 20 mins on each, trying to keep heart rate steady between the different pieces of equipment. Other times I would do the first set steady, the middle set hard, and then back to steady for the final set. It at least gives some variation in an otherwise dull, dull, dull session
Spoons, nice turbo.
DD, it's OK, we had a man with BBM contact to his bookies Still wasn't quite the same without the cold hard cash exchange element. Really well done for a great effort on the tri. Shame it didn't go to plan, but it sounds like you handled it all well, enjoyed the bits you could, and I hope the post-race ciders were good.
Sarah, I'm with you on the copious amounts of fruit and veg!! Minimal cheese for me, sorry, FRC, but it kills my stomach in high doses. Nutrition is so personal, the hard part is working out what works - and carrying Immodium Instants should it all go wrong mid-race
Gazelle, really sorry to hear you've been so poorly. I hope you get well soon.
I had a good day yesterday. Spin session followed by core in the morning, 4.5m recovery run in the evening. I took my spin session comparatively easy and ran the RR really easy and I now feel back to normal after my blip this week. I'm also going to back off the mileage in my LSR today but add in some marathon pace. The aim is to do 15m comprising 3.5m easy, 8m@mp, 3.5m easy
How are you this morning Minni?
Good luck, racers Remember: don't be shit DD: ouch - that must have hurt. But you did a great swim . What 911 did you have? Mine was one of the last few 993s (a Targa - loved the glass roof!!) built in '96. My heart still bleeds coz I left it behind when we moved back home but since we downsized massively the fancy cars had to go AA: Enjoy San Fran - love the place. Great running routes down by the harbour front ... Hope weather is better where you are. Sun is out which is nice but we have a bitch of a westerly wind blowing. Just changed my planned route to one where I should have it more from the side than full frontal. 22 on the menu for today ...Went to the cinema yesterday and watched the most inspirational movie ever. It's called GOLD and it's a documentary made by a disabled German director about 3 outstanding Paralympians. Kurt Fearnley (he needs no introduction - what a hero), Kirsten Bruhns (German swimmer who had a motorbike accident age 22 that left her in a wheelchair) and blind Kenyan long distance runner Henry Waniyoke. I hope they are going to screen it in the UK - it really is worth watching.
Hi All - I have to admit that last night when i saw that it was going to take me 1:30 to drive to the Spitfire 20 in good traffic, I thought sod that. So I did the inaugural Enfield 20 mile race with a feed station every 4 miles.
Had to dig deep but managed to do my target plan. 1st 10 miles @ 8:22, 2nd 10 miles 7:44, for a total time of 2:40. And even better I didn't need to drive an hour and a half back home.
Sunday roast now.
Well done Oompa & Bro - hope everyone else had a good one.
Ant/oompa/2old - well done
Free - Well done on the sub 3:30
DD - Apparently Brownlee broke the course record, even after taking a wrong turn, that's younsters for you
