"a very wise woman told me to breathe out steadily, as if I was whistling, and it works for me." Does this woman fly around on a broomstick?
No, she's one of the 4 horsepersons of the Apocalypse
Hill reps with a Welsh Triathlon champ tomorrow, should be fun!
Evening allWatchit Sossige!!
IronDonkey - the masters swim club will help loads. I joined one for a year and improved loads. It will be tough and horrible though.....
SD - what's ice cream?
Just done the first of Chrissie's Audiofuel turbo sessions. First time I've done anything like that (as opposed to my aimless fannying about on the turbo) and I enjoyed it. Only thing which really took me by surprise was that I never imagined Chrissie going in for subliminal messaging.About 2 seconds after she says, "select a harder gear and resistance", there's a really quiet voice which says, "harder than that, you lazy mare". I swear. Honest.
Budgie, same here. 150m tops before I'm heaving for breath but it is coming slowly. Apparently for the last 20 years I've been kicking from the knee down, once I learned to kick with whole leg my legs have come up and create less drag but a lot of improvement required in a short time
Lol! I could produce my own set of turbo sessions I have two 10 hour shifts and on a weekend .. how very rude
Time has been a bit tight today, but I have managed to squeeze in 1hr15min on the bike. It was frrrrrrrrrrrreezing.
Any recommendations for toasty thermal gloves?
What ever gloves you get .. buy a pair of silk liners to go underneath I think I have some Altura ones
Good mileage for this time of the year BadgerI hope for a short run when I get home tonight and then a swim tomorrow before workIts all rock n roll here
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.
I know I know ... its a hard life but somone has to fly the flag
Weekly update. Ironman UK training week 1
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...
