OH, the rest of the compliment was aout how good you must feel to be doing proper runners running!
A good swim then Blisters? Just hope I can keep it going until the end of April!
-Yeah, first of all they found my brand new, but recently lost swimwear.-Then I nailed 400m just to warm up, and was in the PB zone. Leaving the clock running, carried on for the mile, focussing on the stroke and legs, nailing it in 43:30 despite swapping through 3 lanes.-After that I had a bit of play time, tumble turns. Totally new to me. Are they allowed in pool races?
Excellent Blisters - we told you it would all come together! Most pool tris will allow tumble turns. I've never learnt as my swim coach used to tell me that it would take me about 8 months of practice to make them as fast as a good touch turn - and I only usually do one pool based tri a year and then only because it's 4 miles from home.
Well I just popped in here to see if the DTT was still going - not only is it going, but all the same posters as well!
In which case:-What: 7.4 miles, alternate easy & briskWhy: Get some miles in without it being too boringLast hard: Twin track sessions yesterdayLast rest: Sunday
Wow - long time no see 40 minutes - still running well!
Little Miss Happy - I have people to do the long run on Sunday with.
What: 3 miles with Mae, then spent most of the day helping son move out.
Only trouble was when we had 3 cars full, one mostly full of children, someone realised the pushchair was left out so there was a bit of to and fro about who was going to put it away.
I'd been waiting to shut the garage door, then thought I could put the pushcair away and went to run past the car in front of me and eldest grand daughter who didn't see me coming opened the car door and send me flying!
Got a couple of nice bruises on both thighs and hit my chin on the wood that surrounds her patio! Quite a bit of blood, thought at first it might require stitches but taped it up and it is fine.
Didn't do any driving after that, no run from me today, will just go for coffee! What one will do for a rest day
hi 40 mins!

NZC - ouchie, hope you are not too bruised!40 - good to see you back!Blisters - nice work in the pooltraining update - well made the club session, pyramids (on boggy grass), 200, 400, 600, 800, 1k & back down with 200 recoveries. Wore spikes even then it was a bit heavy going on the legs. Tea time now.....
Glad no major damage NZC
Welcome back 40, good to have you on board again.
No hadn't forgotten the lyric torture - nothing's changed in that regard, I've still no idea!
Spot of serious illness a couple of years ago followed by Achilles (again) and Hamstring (a new one for me) injuries last year have combined with advancing Vet status to slow me down a bit. Have just entered the Bideford half marathon (March), last time I ran that I got sub-90, this time probably 5 minutes slower!
10K Easter Monday, possibly a marathon later in April.
