Sounds perfect for a complete numpty to have a go and then write a book about it.

BBT - I am booked in for a swimsmooth clinic for the day in January - really looking forward to it and hoping it will help speed me up a bit!

Can't imagine going to Disneyland - my idea of hell I think!

Love it, was my second time at Paris. And I've been to Disneyworld in Florida over ten times, can't get enough it.

I did type a response along the lines of, "I don't Think so" - fell running has it's definitive book, I don't think I could do it better, and I don't want to live on the fells.

Thanks Cat,.

TB - a good strong run. My longest run under Fink last year was 19 miles (I was doing run/walk).

I was wondering about run/walk strategies, or basically the run stratergy. Should I not worry about it till i've got a longer brick under my belt, or should I plan for it ahead?

There's been quite alot of talk about heart rates on other threads, but I did a max test last night and got a result of 245. I was thinking my 305's heart rate monitor must be faulty?, I'm going to do my bike max test tonight wearing both my 305 and a cheapy karimoor HR monitor I have.

So I had a Feb HM as an A-race. After this all my LSRs were done at run walk - Set the alarm for 10 minutes - so run 10 *beep* walk 1 run 9 *beep* walk 1 run 9 *beep* etc. I was averaging under 8:30/mile. All other runs were run.

Can you view the data from last night on Garmin connect or similar? You'll probably find the 245 is a static spike, and there is an upwards trend on the HR. Pick the highest non-spike.

It's been a while since I rode at night, but maybe I will again soon. It's nice when you're wrapped up warm and have a good light. Like a guilty pleasure.

How d'ye get on with the HRM TB?

Run track session tonight. 400m with 60s rest, then 50s etc down to 20s, then back up the rest periods. It amazes me how much distance we rack up on a track session;even though the reps were only 3600m, we did over 10km in total.

Oh - and I won the club TD Tri award at the annual awards night!

Oo its a cold one tonight, Brick done, first ride in the dark, was quite enjoyable. Then went to the pool to do a swim but the pool is closed  because of an "incident"  maybe I should leave the swimming for a week just incase
