Another Ironman journey
Evening all. Went for a run tonight. It didn't go well but I think I'm on the mend.
Evening. Good to see your still with us Spoons. Just caught up after a weekend on the piss in London, need to get some training done to burn some of it off . Just ordered a 910XT too in preparation for starting the training plan and got a swim session with Non Stanford to look forward to on the weekend
spoons good to see you are stilll alive
swim gym and bike for me yesterday too
back to physio again today, back to work tomorrow, I think I have been off for long enough
sounds like a nasty sprain sgt. I would just rest and ice, maybe see a dr if it doesn't improve

I think we need a female to explain. I only recognise black, white, red, yellow, blue.

Ahh the colours available from PlanetX
SD - I'll be there. Not sure how impressive my performance will be though
I tried a sufferfest video on the turbo last night - local hero, gosh its a killer. I only managed to get past the 3 lots of pyramids before I could have up. Getting very close to the start of the 30 week fink plan for outlaw, starting to stress about what to do on what days to try to fit it all in... now where's my mentor.
TB, as my mentor tells me, a plan is just a guide. Fit in what you can, juggle big rides/runs around if you have to, and don't stress if you miss a day or two. I'm going to stick to mine as much as I can, but I'll also be slotting in some extra turbo sessions.
Reading Going Long right now too, and one thing it says that strikes as good sense -- why put your long ride and long run together if you don't have to? So my long run is going to be mid-week (I'm lucky that I work for myself)...
And I'm always going to do my best to remember I'm supposed to be enjoying this!
Yes good advice both, I just need to re arrange the plan and I should fit it all in. I'm thinking along the lines of:
Monday AM Swim - PM Running club
Tues - Cycle
Wed - AM Swim PM - Long Run
Thurs - Cycle/Run brick
Fri - Am Swim - PM Run
Sat - OFF
Sun - Long Cycle
I have toyed with the idea of swapping alternate long runs and long rides on Saundays, so I can still do some long runs with the running club, but my cycling really does need the focus.
I could be wrong I'm re-reading Fink at the moment, I know things have to change to fit in with life. He says it's also planned out to work different muscle groups on different or spaced out days so that needs some attention paid when you need to switch things about a bit.
AliBear is right i think. According to Fink the shorter sessions at the beginning and middle of the week are to provide muscle rest and promote recovery from the long weekend sessions with times gradually building up through to the end of the week. i can see the logic in splitting up the long sessions to not overload your legs on 2 consecutive days, but then think that the whole week would have to be swapped around to compensate...
I've seen quite a few people talking about switching long days around so they aren't next to each other. Surey that's the point though, its like a long brick but with a bit of recovery. After all, on the day its a long bike followed by a long run?
What ever is being done now is all preparation ... dont get carried away, use this time to find out what works and what doesnt, what you are good at and what you are pants atSpeak with mentors or pirates on threads, you will get a huge amount of advice, take bits of each and rearrange the words to something that applies to you At this stage, its exercice not training **sage advice from someone I dont remember who
