1:15 run done, for 7.15 miles all z1-2 a tiny hill top blip to z3 but only seconds
getting MTV ready for a slushy ride with friends later, then a mile or so run with Mrs Matt tonight and possibly a weights session
First I need to thaw my feet out
Went out with friends to re-do the loop along the cycleways and towpaths, but the slush was that thick and ice was that bad we got 7 miles in and they decided to call it a day and head home. 2 1/4 hours to do 14 miles is pretty hard going tbh.
Still, a mile or so to run tonight with mrs matt
after following finks low heart rate running for the last few weeks it does make you wonder how it will affect speed............all my training runs seem to be at around 11 min miling..........
today i did an 8 mile race and managed to PB by 44 secs........66:46 which is a an average of about 8:20..all splits were between 8:19 and 8:29 apart from the last which was 7:56...
has given me more faith in the slow run training method
Garmin question here. Got the 910xt and did a brick session today so decided to put it on multisport plus transition. Everything worked absolutely fine but when I downloaded the information it came up as 3 seperate things that I had done. Shouldn't it have come up as 3 sports but just 1 activity. I'd have to add the totals up to see how long it all took. I'm sure I've done something wrong somewhere
or you could go into garmin connect and go into' reports' then 'all activities' for 'today' to give a total time
3 days of rest due to visiting home - will be going home next week too so need to pull my finger out this week
The "what happens next" meeting in wednesay and will either be remove prostate or radiotherapy I believe depending on if it's spread.
My concern is my dad is already at a low and I suspect that if given the worse news he won't neccessarily have the mental fight in him.
I'm now doing Outlaw for Macmillan Cancer www.justgiving.com/ks-tri
BTW does anyone swim with music?
Also If I'm going to be visiting home more often and therefore have 2 days off a week potentially is it OK to squash 6 days training into 5 or is there a session to miss? I know when the bike gets too long err in 2-3 weeks! I will have to take bike home and cycle on the nasty roads by mums where the cars don't like cyclists and do like speeding
Can you cycle home, or is it too far?
To/from work is about 20m on unlit back roads (or 18m down the M1!!!) and I plan to do 1 day commuting in the months to come
Fingers crossed for you all for Wednesday Pixie
