The rain is hammering down and I've just heard thunder.  I've moved my rest day and am taking it today  .

Good choice. They never get thunderstorms in that part of the world.

Evening all

on a recovery week this week ... I find the training sessions on a recovery week harder than my normal sessions think it must be that I am more motivated for bigger sessions

Today ...

LUNCH
- 45min trail run

PM
- 75min spin
- 45min weights ( full body )

A good day for Nursey today.  Been to t'physio, and he doesn't need to see me again .

Just back from the pool, did (all front crawl) 500m, then 10x75m as 25 kick / 25 pull / 25 swim, then 250m.  38:19, so I'm happy enough with that considering how little I've done over the past few weeks.

Then I had a sauna

Yay great news Nursey  and great training

45 min steady run along the coast this morning. Tomorrow I'm determined to go out for my first open water sea swim. I'll only go for 15 or so mins to see how I go.

Good luck to those about to undertake an autumn Marathon (Amsterdam, Brussels etc etc)

'want' or 'need' Nursey ??   What exactly did he say?  

I have swum and run and been to the tip, I had never been to the tip before so this was mildly exciting  

03/10/2012 at 18:55

going to the tip? exciting?

went to spinning and my calf starting feeling a bit odd when we were doing a sprint. So didn't go fast after that.....
