should be ok Raf, as I don't think the washing machine should effect the magnetic strip on it ???

have woken up with a stonking headache today - mostly sinus related - so am feeling a tad crap. am going to have today as a rest day (though I may well play around with kettlebells later and do core stuff if my head doesn't feel like it'll explode)  Bah

That's crappy Fraggle, hope you feel better as the day goes on.

Raf, I reckon it'll be fine.  My granny once washed £200 in my papa's trouser pocket - not a good outcome.  Now there's a thread idea - "What have you put through the washing machine by accident?" Mine would be an REM ticket.

Swim and run planned for lunchtime.

Donkey .. what was the outcome then??

Spoons, get it done every couple of weeks, its a good test ... you too Nursey & Fraggs !!

I dont want to tempt fate but I dont think I have ever put anything throught the wash that wasnt supposed to be there ...

Meldy - 200m: 3.20 / 400m: 6.58.

Getting better while actually enjoying the time swimming. It's no longer something "I just have to do".

Good stuff Donkey!   DId you do it that way round?   Should be 400 and then 200 which will prob give you a different result

Yes ma'am.

Really short of time today, so a quick swim - 4 x 250m trying to focus on my core and not dropping my hips - and a 30 min run straight after.
Have just unrolled the yoga mat to do some core work and stretches.

I am feeling very positive about training and O-day at the moment

Actually we did. I've since read we should have done the 400m first.

Will try the other way next time.

Evening all

Whats a washing machine? Is it the same as a wife?

Good swimming guys.

Done an hour swim tonight. Had a go at bilateral breathing, did it for half a dozen lengths. Felt a bit awkward but i think a bit more practise will sort that out

Yes, but quieter and more efficient.

Meldy - Yep, CSS test indeed.

Spoons - Here you go

 

Ah - so it's much the same as lactate threshold runs.

45 min turbo, then a quick run in the cold.  Felt good.  I seem to fly off the bike, maybe it just feels quick.

Racing in pirate colours for first time on Sunday.  It's only a 10k, but the only way is up, right?

Tim, I always run better off the bike, you are nicely warmed up and the cadence is 'there' following the bike
(its all relative and I still run like a lumbering thing)

I run quicker coming off the bike and in training I have to concentrate on keeping it together and not going out too hard and fast.

Returned to proper running last night with a few 1500m intervals.

Just completed my longest swim. 4km / 160 lengths in 85 mins.
