ive been using sufferfest as entertainment but still keeping within zone 2. acts as a reminder to keep checking cadence and heart rate, works well for me. I tend to drop to bottom of zone2 in the recovery periods but drop a gear in the efforts as I start to near the upper limit.

What's becoming my favourite session of the week - the brick (45+15) I've discovered fits perfectly with Ski Sunday on iPlayer - I'm in the same tuck position as the downhill skiers ... the cow bells are for me ... loving it   .

Then out for a run, already warmed up, straight into a good paced run ... fab

I'm getting really bored of the drills part of the swim set for Fink - really don't want to get fins and paddles and the like, but sometimes it feels like I'm just going through the motions with the drills, rather than actually thinking about how they are improving my stroke ...

can't advise with that brit asd I only zombie swim.....

this morning got in the car to go to spin then my swim...struggled three times to get the car out onto the cleared ruts... decided that it was a sign not to go....went to bed instead and slep for nearly 2 hours.........

as I got the car out earlier for the exam run I think that it was my brain telling me to rest

1 hour on the dreadmill for me. Reckon the next run can be done outside safely.

Was thinking of swimming this afternoon but really can't be bothered to wash my hair twice in 1 day

LOL... the pied piper of Wales!

Just worked out that it is a month to go before my first sportiff!  Sh*t.  I had better find my bike and see if it still works!  

Evening peeps....

Britrisky, don't you feel compelled to eat a bar of Milka in the middle of your session? On the swim drills, stick at them. I'm convinced that they help even if they feel like they don't.

My first pair of tri-bars arrived today. Excited!

Brit - using fins allows you to do the drills at normal pace. That way you get to do the drill properly, and the muslce memory builds from there.

EP very sorry to hear about your Dad but well done on the speedy Turbo session.

I've manage 2 x 1hr swims, Im supposed to be doing Fink but can never rememeber the drills so I did 1hr club swim which was arm drills and speed work and this morning I did my 1hr zombie swim. I'm starting to really enjoy my zombie swims.

Brit - I tried fins for the first time yesterday and it completely threw me. It felt very unnatural.  Suppose it's just something else to get used to!
