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.
Folks if at any time I start slacking or moaning please beat me with a hard pointy stick.
Dad's just been diagnosed with cancer. 12 mths ago he had a kidney removed for cancer. 3 mths ago he was told it had all be removed he was all fine and dandy.
Now they are doing bone scans and an MRI to see what treatment to do
EP.thats horrible news..so sorry for you all .. what a shock
Be kind to yourself....
EP sorry to hear your news keep well.
EP that's really bad news. Sorry to hear that. Fingers crossed
90mins and an amazing 25m on the turbo - not Z1-2 mind
good session there........schools are open here today so will hopefully be able to tick off 2nd swim and 2nd yoga session today
Sorry to hear that EP
as above EP sorry to hear,
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!
I failed on my swim today.got out after 30 mins as my back and shoulders were hurting too much................spent the extra time in the sauna then did yoga........
Asthe others have said sorry to hear your news EP.
managed a 40 min turbo this AM, running tomorrow. Yeah!
I haven't been on the forum for a few weeks - sounds like everyone is doing really well in their training though. It is such a challenging time of year. I keep reminding myself that when Spring comes it'll be so much easier!
I am really impressed that people are managing to do upwards of 2 hours on the turbo. I have been sacking the road bike and going mountain biking instead. I am not sure how well that works but I have been trying to do less technical routes where I end up pedalling for most of the time.
I am doing the Strathpuffer this weekend - not sure it was the best idea to enter when I am traning for an Ironman but at least it will switch things up a bit! I am doing it in a quad so it hopefully won't be too bad...
Anyone else heading up here to Scotland for it?
EP - really sorry to hear your news.
Training going well this week so far:
Tuesday: 1 hr run
Wednesday: Brick Session (40 mins turbo plus 25 min run)
Going out later for a long MTB ride as we've still got a fair bit of ice/slush up here. Am aiming for an hour and a half
Haven't had chance to get to the pool yet so will go tomorrow morning and then do my run at lunchtime
Keep at it folks!
Sorry for your news EP. Chin up and keep us posted.
Had a severe case of CBA today.
No training done at all
Ladies and gents too I guess.
After 90mins of the turbo today I was a tad tender and wondered what is recommended!?!
I've used body glide before to prevent bra chaffage is that the best to use or is there something better?
Have you tried the Shock Absorber Ultimate Dry? It isn't quite the concrete hold of the Run version, but its lovely to wear, and is specially designed for, well, sports that give a greater glow .
