Plum - for the newbies amongst us, please could we have a few more details.  I guess you accrue points for training (surely against the Pirate Ethos ), but is there anything else we should know?

Seems simple enough... Can I have part points for swims under 400m... Considering I haven't been to a pool in 2 years now!.. Or will I have to become imaginative with my training log?

ask away.........

I thought it was pretty simple even for Schminkees but here we go. 

you get a point for every mile you run, every 400metres you swim or every three miles you cycle, added in this year after consultation and nagging you can have points for mileage/time on the turbo as well so....

if on Monday you get up and swim 2k then do a 5 mile run then a 20 mile bike ride you get  


5pts for the swim (400 x 5 = 2000) 
5 pts for the 5 mile run
6 pts for the 20 mile bike...... No you cant have 6-666, if you want 7 pts do the extra mile FFS 

So for Monday you get 5 +5 +6 =16 points......

If you do the mileage on the turbo you get the same point for every three miles but as some of us cheapskates dont have a thingy for measuring turbo mileage (is is my birthday in January) you get a point for every 15 mins you spend sweating your cods off

The winner will as usual be K9 unless an arm drops off so the race is on for second......

"lots" is a bit of an understatement dear.......

A migrating Pacific salmon would be a few points behind you

31/12/2009 at 14:31
Can I have triple points for 25m swimbles coz I am mega-sh1te?

i have decided to taper today so I'll do my long run tomorrow......might even get in the lead until K9 overtakes as usual......

(ok, i actually had too much red wine last night and caught the tube in instead of running into work.......)

Schmunkie - its just another training thread really, where we play chase the K9.......   just join in and join the 'fun' ! 

Don't be intimidated by the numbers that other post because

  • k9 is half (dog) fish?? and has to swim 5k every day to stay alive
  • some people are exercising way to much at the moment, and are heading for burnout (err thats me i think)
  • everyone has different targets / time available so the only numbers that matter are your own..... (sounds very worthy that  )
  • some of us lie.......   (ok we don't really).
