kettlebells done - man it's hard work and there were loads of bicep curls tonight, sp won't be able to lift anything heavier than a cup of tea tomorrow!

Thats a coincidence Melds. At my coached swim session last night the guy running the session video'd my leg kicks. It wasnt pretty.

He said my pull with the arms needed to be stronger & to try swimming with a pull bouy just below the knees to isolate my leg movement. My legs just sank after half a length. Told me to practise this to increase my stroke strength.

There you go see Sossige ... meldy always knows best  

Cat, in truth I would be well disappointed with that (personally that is)

I wouldn't - a minute faster than Outlaw! After some stalking I reckon a 1:10 would be more likely. 1:07 would be nice but I don't know how busy your pool is.

I wouldnt attempt it when it was busy 

That said, perhaps I should?  More realistic!

I guess at 1:09

Melds - 1.03?

As for me. A day off with Man Flu and perhaps a day on the sofa wrapped in a duvet with Halo 4, Tomb Raider or that newish Bond film I've not quite got round to watching.

I swear I was reading about one of the pro ladies recently in the long distance who claimed they train through anything that doesn't require bed rest. The article spoke of the lady coughing and snotting her way through a 5k swimm session without a hint of a moan or a winge.

That's both bad ass and gross at the same time.

^^ urgh!

feeling tired today, and not sure whether it's a case of I worked hard yesterday and my muscles ache, or a coming down with the man-flu muscle ache   have a su=inusy headache building so may avoid the pool, and just do my planned run instead.

mr Frag is enjoying the new Tomb Raider - but it doesn'y seem to have got rid of his man-flu; and No2 son is off school with earache and the snuffles.. I'm doomed I tell ya!

I expect the manflu will last a little longer now he has tomb raider to finish

Meldy 1:05

did 3.8k myself last week but speed is still yet to come and with a 1:22 best (IM Wales) 1:35 wasn't to disappointing

cycled to park run saturday, shinny new PB (25:25) (oh to be as quick as Tired Badger) cycled home, then found out pool was closed for County champoinship, so Mrs SA desides that "we" should do her long run on Saturday so ground out an 11 miler. Bike on Sunday was nice 35 miles, 6 mile recovery on Monday, last night was 30mins turbo and 20 mins treadmill, 8 mile run tonight.

Ran for an hour yesterday then a great hour's swim with NEWT.  Now time to jump on turbo and then a brick run afterwards to a) muddy up these shiny new trail shoes and b) run the dog around the woods.

So then, after much introspection I decided to go for a little jog to help clear the head.  Perhaps "jog" is a little dishonest as a shuffle or perhaps an oscilation would be the more accurate description of my most recent attempt at exercise. 

That said, 30 or so mins outside crawling along the canal has really lifted the mood.  Still, bet I'm a grumpy so and so in a few hours time....

Goodness .. I think I might need to get my excuses in ready for tomorrow
All hinges on me getting my arris out of bed in time to whizz the horse round the woods to be back home, eaten and in the pool in good time to be out of it before the schools pile in .. if not it will just become a long time trial with the time I have!

a 45 minute run for me as well ahead of tomorrows physio appt

It has got decidedly cooler here again today just when I was looking forwards to a nice bike ride on Sunday

Evening all

Had a good (for me) session today

- 50min spin - mix of easy and drills

Followed by
- 4k swim as 3 x 1k building plus 1k recovery

Fastest 1k ( the 3rd one) was 18:37 ... So happy with that
