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 ??

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

Nice work Brit, and well done on the forward movement SD!

Planned outdoor cycle has been knocked on the head today, so I'll turbo instead.

Just got an e-mail from a friend in New Zealand recommending Holgs books.  The influence is spreading.................................

People in New Zealand can read?

Blizzard conditions in Norwich at the minute. Should make tonights MTB /run brick interesting

My 24 week Outlaw plan starts next Monday, almost finished writing it

Been suffering terribly with a bad chest last week, so did no training after Wednesdays abandoned run session which still saw me run 7 miles, although the last mile ( uphill ) was almost 15 minutes

Anyways went out for a gentle plod at lunchtime, very icy underfoot in places so pleased with 3 miles at av pace of 8.25. Was supposed to be doing a half mara this Sunday but won't be fit enough. Will train instead.

My first book at least ( no idea on 2nd one yet ) has sold really well in New Zealand and Australia, which still amazes me.

Holgs - started your second book. Had forgotten all about Zoe and 'Sunshine on a rainy day' - that was blast from the past - sitting in the Quad outside the Union bar in the first year of my undergrad! Happy Days!

I havent bought your book yet Holgs, on the list though. I'm probably going to buy the first one again as well though as ive only got that on Kindle. I do prefer a paper book.

I have a backlog of 7 books to read at the minute, including two from our zombie author friend.
15/01/2013 at 19:17

zombie author? I don't know what you are talking about

I have your book holgs, but can't read it yet as the kids are making me read the Darren Shan books that they are reading, and if I don't get them read they are going to spoil the story by telling me what happens
