Sick, snotty weans  .  That's put paid to my swim and run today, will need to get the pencil out and rearrange the Fink days.............again.

I think another coffee is in order

Sorry about that Nursey.  I try not to get too anxious about missed or swapped session, no matter what Fink says in the book.  And as my splendid mentor has said, it's a plan, and one size doesn't fit all. Life intrudes!  Hope they're better soon.

Cheers Tim.
I do jiggle the days around all the time to fit with my shifts, hubby's shifts and the kids. I just thought I'd done all my swapping for this week!
Unless they have a limb hanging off, they're going back to school tomorrow

30 min recovery turbo at lunch. To save time I followed Raf's example and ate my lunch on the turbo.

Ironman Louisville day 1 training complete.  I'm pooped! Yeah, so what if it was a rest day?

(In all seriousness, will be running a bit later as I'm still keeping my running streak alive at 240 something days in a row)

The tri yesterday went well.  It was a super sprint, and I cut off 6 minutes from last year include a 7:38/mile pace on the run.  Super stoked at that. I did update my blog with the story if anyone actually reads that rag besides my mom (what the heck is a mum anyway?).

I watch Netflix when on turbo, it's like having the tv all to myself... Never happens in this house otherwise

I think my turbo is under a pile of washing somewhere ... and the bike thats on it

I tend to use the spin bikes at the gym instead these days

Enjoy the intervals Gas, feel the pain!

First Du this year at the weekend. Could be a shock to the system, especially trying to stay upright around Dorney Lake on the TT bike .

What time do you start at the weekend Cat and are you racing in black and yellow....or blue and red? Might come over and shout at you!

Good luck cat, have fun.

1 hour coached swim tonight.

Pull buoy drills, finger dragging drills, kickboard drills. Think its starting to have an effect.

Need to try speed up my breath intake now. Starting to do 4 strokes between breaths as well.

Kick off is 0930 from the cheap end of Dorney. At the moment I'm racing in blacknyella though if the club kit order arrives in time I may run in that. Wondering exactly how cold I'll get in trisuit and arm-warmers...Brrr.
