keep hitting those swims seren......If you are swim fit, then you might not be that much quicker but you will get out the swim without it taking much out of you, (ie you essentially cruise around it)You will see the difference in the marathon as you have not knacked your self out in the first 90 mins.... so you can keep running 90 minutes longer......
you never know... you might start enjoying it too!
2km in teh pool done at masters, so different session to Finks.
Good God it was hard work! I think I need to swim far more often. I think the last proper swimming I did was November.
Now I cant decide if I want to eat sleep or die.
Please tell me it gets easier (quicker would also be nice)
Parkrun in the morning, then long bike and long run Sunday
long bike? done managed 40 on the turbo. third bike session of the year !
needs to be double that and the quality is in need of focus.
might have to hit the road to get the legs working !
what a miserable morning in south wales........park run done for me.
glad i crammed most of my training into the first part of the wek as i wouldn't want to cycle out today,.foggy, wet and windy.....i ignore my heart rate zone for the odd race and just keep to the low zones for the rest of the time...........no point in doing a race if i'm going to walk it.......
hope the weather is better for you matt for the bike ride.....i'm hoping tomorrow is better here
Bike done ,god I've got some work to do there, this is my weakest discipline not that I'm very hot on ther others LOL. Run tomorrow but will have to be early as Hubby has XC and its a club event.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend guy's.
Oh and it was ruddy cold out there so wrap up I thought my feet were going to fall off.
I miss running. Going into fourth week of tendonitis/plantar fasciitis and it's still shite. Trying to remain positive and doing every run session on the cross trainer or in the pool with the aqua belt, but nothing can replace running
if you can still cycle and swim........then don't panic.......the running is the least important on the day..........be strong on the other two and you will mentally get yourself to run/walk the marathon
Rest day for me and had a little nap

Lick it? No, didn't try that ... Change battery? Both really helpful tips I hadn't thought about. Will try that if it happens again. Just relieved that I haven't developed some debilitating heart condition overnight!! Hang in there, LB - Mo Farah did loads of aqua running, and all that cross training work will really keep in with the schedule. Sounds like you're doing all the right things ...
I have had loads of issues with my HRM have dumped my Garmin twice and changed the batteries somebody recommended conductive gel to me and it has worked a treat and readings now seem accurate rather than suggesting I am either mega fit or dead
I've just been reading Fink again and looking at the swimming drills. I normally just get in and do an hours zombie swim and whilst I've definitely got faster I have decided I should be doing what I'm told to so it seems to me I need some fins. Do others use them and if so which ones and what size fins?
