RP it was local hero that did for me this weekend .

Raf it's a Raleigh Reynolds 531 frame and forks.
Set up is currently completely off as haven't redone it since we put her back together. Bike fitting on Nov 1 st

She's got pride of place in the living room until then.

Tried turbo for 20 mins this morning for the first time and ended in a sweatbath.  So, I should go find Sufferfest?

23/10/2012 at 11:47

Im on the edge of sufferfest investment.

Im thinking, itll make turbo training more interesting. iim worrying that i dont have a base yet.....

23/10/2012 at 11:49

hell hath no fury, local hero, extra shot, long scream and very dark place for starters ?

always was jumping in without reading the pool empty sign


23/10/2012 at 11:52

I am going to get some downloaded this week - was also thinking of Hell hath no fury and local hero to start with

23/10/2012 at 12:49
I like the look of the sufferfest but think I'm going to stick to low heart rate turbo sessions until fink starts calling for zone 4 efforts.

oh. another thing. just began noticing issues with me feet.  picked up small blisters on non obvious spots and im getting a little numbness in the midpoint of the ball of my right foot. not proper blisetrs mind. just a little round welt and a small popable one. were not talking needles and iodine treatment like the para's might consider on a speed march.

could my trainers be dying ? ive had them a while but only been abusing them for a few months ( probably ).

I have Local Hero and fight club ... will get a couple more this weekend i think


I think that Fink is overly light on the bike if your nor a good cyclest (IMO)



23/10/2012 at 14:17

i suspected as much. planning a ruck of sufferfest - do I need to get a base first or just get wet WW ?

i know their hard - but their only as hard as I want to make it. sceptical that intervals makes for aerobic base work

23/10/2012 at 14:24
I've read that a few people consider fink a bit light on the bike but thought they may have been refering to the get you round plan rather than competitive plan. Still will compare with some other plans and was planning to up the bike a bit anyway.

Sgt are the shoes proper running ones that you were assessed for or a pair of trainers you had kicking round when you started to take up running? If not it would be worth visiting a running shop and asking them to look at your gait for a new pair now that your distances are increasing.
23/10/2012 at 14:52

lol. they were a pair that were kicking around for a 'while'....was hoping to eek them out until chrismas when I could use them to mug a granddad in a red suit, steal his sled and sell reindeer burgers at the pub....

neutral gate  - heavy load....will look into a proper running shop then....
