Lyrics - When you come across the guy who thinks he's bossGo chickadee - enjoy the day!
Safe journey home Gobi.
Grey start to the day here but forecast to brighten up. Hope so as I need more bike time and tomorrow looks very much like a turbo day according to the forecast.
What: bikeWhy: I'm supposed to be a triathleteLast hard: 13/4Last rest: 12/4
Yesterdays lyrics were: 'I still haven't found what I'm looking for ' by U2 from 1987.
Cold and dry start to Easter Monday up here
What:45mins steadily done
Lyrics: Not sure.
Chick: All the very best for today.
Why been awhile
Go Chick Go!
Nice morning though a bit foggy in parts. Just wanted some miles back in the legs.
Have a good day peeps.
Thick haa here but forecast to lift laterWhat: kayak with Elspeth, ? short run, swimming lessonWhy: don't fancy long run today and on target for 100 this monthLast hard: yesterday's 10kLast rest: FridayAnyone know Chickadee's number?
Meant to be recovery swim today but buses are not running . Not sure I can bring myself to do bike and run .. legs feel tired. I may make this my rest day for the week. If not I will do later.
morning allwhat - 4/5 miles easywhy - recovery + more garden related tidying to dolast rest - 16 dayslast hard -yesterdaylyric - don't think so
What: 9k off road, first 5k easy, then pushed on a bit next 4k. Why: ran to feel
Currently 6:56 a.m. in Boston!
Rest day for me.. well actually Pizza and beer just now.. so very much a rest day!!
Don- OH is defo more qualified than me, but I will give you my 2 cents (because I can!!)
The two you have mentioned are the first line treatment of hypertension in athletes (ACE inhibitor and Calcium channel blocker respectively). This is because they don't have a direct effect on energy metabolism per se.
However, having said that, I think they would have SOME effect on exercise tolerance (to what extent is debate-able and depending on dose etc). Both of the medications (by different mechanisms) reduce blood pressure by relaxing smooth muscle/ vaso-dilating. Considering exercise relies on increasing blood pressure and vaso-constriction to increase oxygen delivery to muscles that are aerobically respiring, I reckon its not implausible to suggest it could have an effect.
The hypertension medications to stay away from in exercise is defo the beta blocker or water tablets.. those muck up electrolytes and ability to metabolize.
Have you noticed a change??
If Pizza and beer is a "rest day", what makes a "hard day" and does it involve hard liquor?
Don - I think Dibs has summed thing up nicely there - to sum it up further, if you have to be on antihypertensives they're the ones to be on.
5.6 nm in kayak so far - the ha (sea mist) and a NE wind has certainly brought the temperature down today. Not inclined to go for a run this afternoon. Some chores to do whatever.
Thanks Dibs and OH - that's really useful to know. I've been on those meds since 2008 and I'll be on them forever, so the answer was never going to change that! I don't use my heart rate monitor a lot but I used it today for my speed session and I noticed that my max heart rate of 156 was a fair bit lower than it used to be and I still feel I am putting in a lot of effort - I was running at an average of 5:15 pace for my 1 minute sections. I maybe need to do some longer reps to get a better picture.
So I haven't noticed much of a change - I was just wondering if there might be limits on my racing speed due to the meds. I find the whole thing very interesting - thanks again for your replies!
Go Chick... you can do it....
Happy here..... back to full training I believe.... 18.77m in 2:59:29 (slow) off road following the Test way (3 1/2 relay legs).... Missed the train with mates so rude not to go to the pub next door..... What Bank Holidays are for....
Hi all. Was just following Boston on Twitter. Great result for the USofA in the men's race.
Yesterday I did 5 at just slower than 10 m/m pace. Didn't feel too bad. Today...
What: 10 very very slooooow miles, but as it was on one of my hillier routes that is to be expected (specially as the sun came out and I am NOT a runner who likes heat)Why: meant to be LSR
Hope Chick is having a good day over there in Boston.
don: Good session today mate
Will be interesting to see what Chick thought of today: whilst she didn't get what she trained for I hope she had a great time. Look forward to the report...well toughed out Chick! We are all proud of you!
Well done Chick, hope you soaked up the atmosphere and enjoyed yourself. Can't wait for the report.
Come on chick!! it's killing me . Hope you are enjoying the aftermath, the atmosphere on tele looked AMAZING!
Just got up to see the Boston results! Just wished I could have watched it live!
Chickadee - that looked tough, but hope you did enjoy yourself. What about the women's screams through Wellesley!! Deafening!!
RFJ - great long run there.
What: 6km flat.
