oh, and apparently there are a couple of people at the swim club who hope to qualify for Kona, and lots of friendly older women (ie around my age)

this part of Team Meldy has just done a turbo session - funny how it's much more enjoable when you've got a film to watch (MIB3) ?  now it's shower/eat/shop/get mum from the station and watch rugby til we go out for a beer and skittles night (party on!)

swimmin' and a cyclin' tomorrow

Not entirely untrue though!

Thanks. Love getting PB's. Just had a decent bike as well. 1 hr 50 mins. av 15mph. (good for me) Average would have ben a lot more, but trying to cycle across Norwich kills your time. Especially when Norwich are playing at home as well.

Didnt really plan anything Cat, felt a bit the same as last week. Really couldnt be bothered to go, had to force myself.

Whole run just felt more relaxed. Not had any extra rest. My training time is increasing over the weeks though.

I imagine i'll hit a plateau (not sure how to spell that) again and be stuck around 24 mins for a few months.

My normal longer distance pace is around 10 min/ miles. Hopefully these once a week faster sessions will have a knock on effect and improve that too.

Hour on the turbo last night.  Just done a 95 min brick, 1hr05 on the bike, 30 min run. 
All felt really good, and even managed a few shots on the aero bars.  I'll have to work on my transition times tho'.  I came into the house and stood in front of the TV for 5 minutes, making doubly sure I was seeing the score properly

Couldn't face another Turbo session today so went out for a 3 hour ride - thought it was a good idea until it started snowing! Feet have just about thawed out now!

3.16 for me .. the slowest bike I have done for a long time ... due only I think to the fact that I lost all sensation in my feet and it was decidedly miserable. But its done and I have had dinner and now I have coffee and chocolate

I actually had to get off and walk 5 mins home just to get the blood flowing to my toes as I couldnt bare it any longer!

Well done guys, now on the turbo

Did think of putting cider in the bottle but decided against it...

with my track record of falling off the turbo going anywhere near it with alcohol would be a recipe for disaster!!

SD, great running mate!  I'm off to recce the Blaenavon Tri bike route tomorrow.

Great job SD! I thought you were some fat chain smoking bloke?

Just did 6.46 miles in an hour on a hotel dreadmill.  Kiddo's ice hockey team lost 1-0 in their first game.  It's competitive so no guarantees on playing time so my kid is pretty upset that she didn't get to play much.  She's the youngest on the team, though.  Not sure how to handle it to be honest.

Have fun Tim.

IY- Big her up for actually making it onto the team. That must be an achievement. Respect to anyone playing ice hockey as well. Pretty rough from what ive seen.

My daughters in a cross country comp representing her Army Cadet troop tomorrow. Weather is going to make that interesting.

Finished my turbo session, went for a sprint finish and got up to 65.5 km/h... Managed to avoid a heart attack and then had 15 min cool down

Overall 52km covered

Great running SD, best of luck to your daughter tomorrow
