Great time TB!

Good job TB!

Beautiful day here in the Thames Valley.  Managed a early pre work swim and then a 45 min jog along the river at lunch.  Sooooo wonderful to run under a blue sky with a warm(ish) Sun on the face.  Shame the weather is set to turn by the weekend.

NR - Yep to the foam roller being painful.  Stick with it though.  It's honestly worth it

Thank you all, I was very suprised, hope it just means that I'm getting generally fitter ready for the harder training to com before outlaw.

IronDonkey, yes beautiful day here too, hope its like it tomorrow, I think it may still be a little cold to get out the pool in a tri suit and do the planned 30miles, think i may get changed.

Great run Badger.

Brick for me this afternoon.  Just over an hour on the bike, and I managed several times to have a drink on the move , then a 30 min run.  Longer session planned for tomorrow, rest day Thursday, swim Friday, long bike Sat, long run Sun.

Nice running Badger

Ran back from work today dang me it's surprisingly warm today, had to stop and take my base layer off and roll my tights up .  Been out on my mtb just now, and hunted a copy of the new Tomb Raider game for Mr Frag, it'll help take his mind off the ManFlu he's suffering from


kettlebells later - ding ding!

Did a 5k time trial with running club last night, didn't get to do one at the end of last season so was not sure what to expect with all the low heart rate training that's been done this year to date. It was on a running track so perfect conditions, but broke the 20 mins so really chuffed. 18:43 - very suprised

Doing a DIY olympic distance tom with some of the RC should be fun.

Well done. 2013 is the year of fast running!

ooh, rubber band thingy looks interesting


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.
