2 swimming sessions done but missed the brick session I was trying to squeaze in yesterday as I just ran out of time. Will do that Friday evening instead now.

Roll on lighter drier mornings so I can bike in the morning before work.

Been swimming today. Not getting any faster at the moment but I know I could just carry on and on and I presume I'll get to the finish line

Not done any double days this week and had an extra day off so this week's a cut back week for me.

Seren I'm a bit rushed this Sat, got to have a haircut early so I can quickly get out on the bike before going to watch the rugby so I am afraid I will not be able to this weekend

I did that nasty spinny turbo session last night, I'm getting better can keep in Z1 one with a cadence around 90 now.
1Hr run done this morning and finished before the rain hit If I can keep this up I might actually complete a full weeks training.

Good work Ali. I still can't keep my HR down on that superspin 100+ RPM sesh. And I sweat my bodyweight in an hour. Take two bottles for that one!

Swim #3 again for me last night with the 16 x 25m sprints @ 10 secs in it. Funny how you refine your technique for speed lengths different to how you would swim a steady distance. More or less efficient I'm not quite sure.

60 min run (in the rain) before work this am ensuring beer oclock straight after work. The last thing I want on a Friday night is a workout.

MW I'm in the same camp as DK and cat. I kept in my tempo and interval for bike and run, mainly because it goes against the grain to both increase distance and speed at the same time, a recipe for burn out or even worse stress fracture/ injury.

Not swimming tonight. Today was a pseudo-rest day, just a 3km leg stretch with some 60s and 100m pickups. First du of the year tomorrow, so spent some time in a car park working out the elastic band - shoe thing. All good so far...

I'll keep saying it, this is my short year!

have fun in the morning

Double day today, 13 miles TT in the bike this morning, knocked 1 min off my last time. Followed by a 10 mile run a few hours later. My heart rate on the run seemed to go high very easily, does anyone else find that on a double day their HR is higher on the second outing or is it just me wanting to take it easy and go slower?

Joined the 2 1/2 hour turbo club today - dead chuffed with myself.

Parents are SO annoying.

Despite a weekend at parent's I'm not really any the wiser as to dad's health. I think it's a case of contain instead of cure for his prostate cancer and hope it doesn't spread but it is very likely. Dad has gone into a shell and isn't talking. He's already started a course of drugs which are designed to controll the hormone levels and prepare for radiotherapy which is several months off.

In the meantime I'm going to train with more focus than before as I now have to make him proud (as well as raise some money for Macmillan)

All sessions done last week (very proud of myself for that!) and now planning how to tackle this week.

Oh and in other news the HS2 goes within meters of our house  and cuts across "my" field that takes me on my XC runs

hmmm just been reminded that I entered the Ballot for the ride london thingy which is on the 4th August. Find out thurs (approx) if I'm in but looks like the odds are higher than VLM as with 24hrs before the entries closed they had 50k entries and there is 20K places.

Guess I will have to keep moving after outlaw if I get in!

Sorry to hear about the weekend EP.

I am also in the ballot for the London ride. Forgot all about it...

Managed a full weeks training last week I've only managed that 3 weeks out of 8 so far so must do better.

More new shoes purchased on Friday as I've worn the heel out on my last pair already. Bad me.

This weeks looks good so far but then it always does on a rest day, I'm just hoping the snow doesn't make a re-appreance. I was actually cold on yesterdays run which is a first.

must stop eating

45 mins turbo done

run/swim tomorrow

Britsky - well done on the 2 1/2 hours on turbo. I'm hoping not to join that club

I've also entered the ballot for the London ride but I'm seriously hoping I don't get in. Can't think what made me think I'd like to do another 100mile ride so soon

Well another long bike ride for me today. I'm hoping my neck will get used to being in a strange position. It still aches now and my butt hurts and why do my feet always go numb? It's not just cold it's actual numbness for the majority of the ride and I couldn't feel them when I'd finished. Very difficult to run on.

*yawn* tired but not sleeping so hoping todays 30mins AM run and 45mins PM swim will help tonight.

Not sure if I will do my LSR (75mins) or brick tomorrow.

Question ... what if I missed my brick but added a run to my long bike ride? Would  that be OK? I'm struggling with the duvet at present as it's taking so long to fall asleep getting up is hard work!
