It is, Mon. Mine was diagnosed and treated early but I'm still suffering post-viral issues. I'm susceptible to everything that goes around and taking ages to recover. Massive pain in the arse if I'm honest!
Dont get concerned about these rest days, its just your body recovering ready to push on and beast the last month of training.Its about the long haul, 20, 30 weeks not about one down week and the rest will do you more good than pushing against the tide when your not 100%.
Does anyone know if the "you must book food by the 1st April" is a flexible arrangement or date has gone, missed the boat simple as!!
Didn't realise the cut off may be so early. Not really for me but for my brothers to have brekkie on the Sunday and all of us have a meal on the Saturday night before.
Not a problem if we missed it just wondering. I'll phone them tomorrow anyway and see.
Hope the weather isn't too bad tomorrow, longish bike if possible. Had 4 days off myself, kinda felt a bit tired and the legs tight after the longer run the other day. Thought it may have been beneficial. I'm on leave from 8am in the morning so just need to book a change in the weather from then for the next 12 and that will do me mighty fine
Have a great weekend every one.
Purple I don't like the mention of the c word, kids are back in school. Seren, glad the bike is fixed up.
Got in a 40.5 mile bike today in between torrential rain showers. It was quite warm when it wasn't raining but straight away got chilled right back down. Eventually a bit too wet.
Barley I had 4 days off and felt much better for it.
Rest days probably did you good Purple. Great miles running though.
Puts me to shame again with my 8.4 miles last night. Not done anything today. Workmen at house, kids after school etc etc ( excuse, excuse )
Bike tomorrow hopefully and run long on Wednesday. Aiming for 4 to 4 1/2 hours on bike tomorrow and 2.30 to 2.45 run on Wednesday.
Waiting for news of when the tri club starts open water swimming in the Tyne. I'm sure it was April last year but maybe it was early May. It'll be a first whatever other than being in there in a drysuit, boots and flotation device!! May be able to swim properly in just the wetsuit.
Less than 7 weeks to go.
Entered Liverpool marathon last night.
Seren, hope the knee is ok today. Was the Mudchute (?) stop put in as prep for eating on the go for the double? Having never ran that far 5.25 with a 20 min stop and run/walk still seems good to me.
Out on bike today. Did 63.7 miles in 4hr 3mins ave 15.7mph. Not a lot of wind out but got caught in a few monster downpours that got you freezing straight away. Quite happy with that. I'm just hoping that my perception that it is hillier here than at AT comes true otherwise I'm knackered!!
Long run tomorrow. Think I'll have to grin and bear it, the forecast from yesterday wasn't good.
Why did they chuck you out? I'm with you on fitting more swimming in. I'm still sadly lacking in that dept but the swims I have done I was quite positive about. Longest so far was 2800m in around 1hr 10 mins. I'm looking for that sort of pace on the day giving a swim time of around 1hr 30 mins. Didn't someone ( yourself? ) make comment once over that if you are moving and getting there the enduroman team may extend the cut off time slightly?
As I said run tomorrow morning and I'll get 30 mins in at the pool from 4 - 4.30 when the kids have their lessons. 30 mins that should be about a mile and a half!!!! I've seen other peoples maths on here 2012 + 2 is definately 2013 in my book.
Hop the rain isn't so bad for us but if it is just think of it as character building
What time did you do on the day last year for the single swim?
Sounds like you think the run course will be a bit better than last year, I've got nothing to go on other than the google map link thing!!
Well I did a 16 mile run this morning. 2 hr 43 mins. Had 2 very short stops back at my house at 8 and 12 miles to have a little to eat and refill water bottle. Experimenting a bit. Had porridge for the first time for breakfast about 1hr 30 before my run. Seemed to be ok and I didn't feel the need to burp any of it!! Had malt loaf on my 2 stops, again stayed down fine. Had rice pudding yesterday on the bike, again no repercussions. A few other things to try in the next few weeks.
Got away with the weather but its meant to be coming this afternoon. Looking at the forecast I'm guessing you didn't get out on the bike Seren. It looked shocking down the South of Wales.
