Hi all,
I seen a similar thread and thought it would be good to start one for the tri people.... It might help with people's motivation during the winter months.

What: 45mins on Ski X-Trainer
When: Thursday lunch time
Why: Less impact than running. Slight strain in shoulder after last nights swim.

Last Swim: Last night with club
Last Run: Tuesday 5mile threadmill
Last Bike: Saturday 2hrs easy
Last Rest: Monday.

doing the two runs 4 days a week Will (generally on one random day I sleep through the alarm and have to go on bike/car/motorbike depending on how late I am)

with a backpack full of stuff, too!

not cycling much though, relatively speaking - maybe 2 x 1.5-2.5 hours midweek, 1 lsd @ 4-5, hours weekend

actually its not 'lsd' - doing everything at 145-150 hr for now, so its just 'l'

I'm looking to do the opposite - lots of cycling less running - I'm too heavy to run a lot, so i'll use cycling to build my base

I'm following the guidlines ing Joe Friel & Gordo Brynes new book

fitting it in with work... the run to the station works, and is reasonable training, whereas its only a 25 minute cycle (yes I could do a detour and spend the same time on the bike i know, but i'd just stay in bed)

i could fit some more 1-hr bike sessions in i guess on other nights, and on lsd run day (or, 'l' run day)

Going to do the Luton marathon (Dec 7th) to keep the interest up during the winter. Swimming down to 2 sessions per week bike down to 1 long ride (off-road MTB) per week plus 1 spin at the gym.
Running currently 30 miles / week will ramp up to 50 over next 6 wks.

nice one guys, you sound pretty fit to me.

i dont deserve to put anything here as ive been pigging out on booze, fags, bags o chips and take aways all week. put a lot of weight on.

ironbloke, im doing luton too. you done it before?
09/10/2003 at 15:28
No, but I know it is a 3 loop race (combined with a relay). My club are entering a team or two but I decided to go the full distance. I believe it's also the Beds and Herts county championships.

its our (civil service) champs as well, one of reasons why im doing it. not to win anythign you understand ha, just to get some fees paid :O)
i hope it's scenic
