Evening Brandon and welcome to the madhouse!

and evening to the rest of you

Glad the steam therapy worked Fraggle!   40 mins with Daniel Craig would never be enough I am afraid

I started a jounrey, that may lead to IronMna in 2014 or 2016 myself.

 

 

Welcome Brandon.

So which 2014 Ironman are you going to sign up for? 

The Anglian down my way has places. Budgie on here is doing that one as well

Welcome aboard Brandon.

I too spent the late afternoon with Mr Bond and the rollers.  Enjoyable.

As for my training plan, my 24 week plan actually starts tomorrow. Last week I miss counted.

Fool.

As for 2014, I'm thinking IM Germany or Switzerland. That said, with mini me no 2 on the way, that may be wishful thinking.

so far no ill effects from yesterdays spin on the bike, I think i might have another hot date with Daniel later

Looks like i'll be binning midweek running this week 11 weeks training without missing any planned sessions so far so a bit gutted.

The muscle knot thats been niggling in my calf for a couple of weeks has actually now turned into a big bruise down the side of my calf, could hardly walk down the stairs this morning.
Back of the calfs are also a bit tender but putting that down to yesterdays 16 miler.

So, i'll bung in exta cycling to make up the training hours and then hopefully legs will have recovered enough for Sundays 3 hour run.

All the best SD! Fingers crossed for a speedy fix for you.

SD - be careful with your calves - maybe a sports massage might sort them out?

I swam at lunchtime too but we did a lot of drills so I wasnt counting 

I did however do a timed 16 at the end of the session as I am inclined to do these days as I think it gives a good indication of pace in IM and still managed a sub 7 so happy with that

Now I am at work til 2am, I shall run tomorrow before coming back in for some more of the same !

Will - ugh 2hours 30 on the turbo, I managed 1:30 and I was a disgusting mess after that... Did involve some delightful intervals though.... I tried too brick run after got about 10 metres down the road and legs decided no running today (raced a 16 miler yesterday so that's my excuse and I'm sticking too it) that's some nice training today mate well done!

M...Eldy - working until 2am sucks been there done that worn the t shirt way too many times, gave that up in favour for the 9-5!

Hump day today for all the fink outlaws, week 16 where did that come from.
Nice training Will,
Hope the calf gets better quickly sdog
I'm feeling a bit tired today, heavy legs on the pm 9m run, morning swim was hard as well although the 2500m was done in 55mins which is okay for me, bike tomorrow so i'll push through as my bike needs work then if i'm still feeling worn down on Wed i'll swim but drop the PM run.
