Morning Melds, dont know how you live such a rocknroll lifestyle.

Just been out for my run. 45 mins, few snowflakes coming down. Was quite nice running round the city before 9am. No people or cars

Now off for my first of 4  bike maintenance lessons, they emailed to say wrap up warm? Not liking the sound of that.

Watched last year's IMUK highlights again last night.  Not many goatees in triathlon, are there?  At least my family might be able to pick me out in the swim...

Did Fink swim #18 followed by 30 min run this afternoon.  Had even made a pot of soup beforehand so I wouldn't come home and raid the kids Christmas chocolate (yes, they still have some left because we are evil parents and we ration it!).
I am feeling very pleased with my wee self

I did the swim in 50 mins

How much of a space cadet does one have to be to lose count doing 100m reps?

Easy done .. one length is much like the next one in the pool !

Get a lap counter, cheap n cheerful and gives you some stats to look at

200 wu, 8x50, 5x100, 8x50 100cd?   Did you feel like you had worked hard on the 100's?

Erm, if I'm honest miss, not hard enough .  That's a mile swim in total and I can swim a mile in the pool under 40 mins.

I have a Sportcount because I'm so crap at counting, but forgot to take it with me today.

Are you sure you know what you've let yourself in for.....................?

I had a quick look at Fink just to see what the sets were .. I need to study in more depth to see what the intensity is/should be but I would gues if its sets of 100 with 20 secs rest then you should be upping the pace a tad  




You have a sportscount so you dont have to remember to count and you forget to take it with you ??

No, just keep your size 10s handy!

Well done Nursey.

Week one done! http://www.runwalkcrawl.com/week-one-done/

Well done Nursey

1 hour coached swim session tonight. Used a kick board for the first time in over a year. Last time i used one i went backwards so managing to complete 100m with it was a surprise tonight.

Finished my swim set 4 min earlier than usual (progress!), so treated myself to a little blast in the steam room - bliss
