britsky.my mileage is going to be higher early on as I am going off a strong base from last spring......and i'm going for a big improvemnet in my single ironman time.......
those doing their first one don't worry or panic that you are not doing as much mileage......I've been going long for a few years now and so have more idea on what my body can cope with......hopefully
45mins z2 run. 2 of the 3 miles started with a 14 and average just a 14 so happy! Managed to run through a puddle with 5mins to go so got home with ice block feet.
Snow was slush when I left the house but when I got home it had settled and you couldn't see where I had run 40-45mins earlier.
still out of action with my calf. gonna book a physio session this week as i still can't run on it despite my 8 day lay off. still feels no better
using the 'spare' time to get some bike miles in as it seems ok on the pedals.
Well back to the turbo today and 50 easy mins after yesterday. Could have gone outside but I've had enough for 1 week of being wet and cold
First swim in 2 weeks planned for tonight...gulp (literally)
Week 11 started for me today (Finking for IMA so one week ahead of Outlaw). So 'Build' phase starts and Pick Ups are introduced into the 60 minute morning run. Initial observations would be:
Swim sets get longer too I think they rise to 3k so tonight will be the first of those.
Happy training everyone!
sweetfeet........out of interest which of the finks plans are you following......
I have the brick session planned for today.........hoping for a break in the weather to get the bike done outside.....my back really can't cope with the turbo at the moment..
managed my swim yesterday and an hours run.......was running a different route and so enjoyed it......so hard to not run the same old routes when you have been running a few years........I ran whilst my son was coaching hockey.had an hour to waste and so thought that a run would be the thing........
Hi Seren. Competitive, until I run out of time/ability. Cheers.
i thiought it must be because of the 3k swim........I don't think i will ever get to the 3k in an hour.but hoping to get closer to 2.8k in the next month or two.......I have already decided that i can't go to 3 swim sessions a week though.........I have to play mind games to get me to 2 sessions........which i have done every week
Time is the killer. I'm really struggling where to put the third swim. It'll have to be at the weekend somewhere but i doubt it will get done every week.
Fortunately of the three disciplines swimming is my favourite so I will be inclined to find the time. The bike is my nemisis but so important...
Intermediate, except ankle injury has messed things up a bit - plus what was I doing thinking I'd have loads of time for training during half term?
Hadn't banked on two kids at home - haven't done any training this week yet ... grrrr
45mins turbo before work nearly skipped as tired. Son had to get to sch for 2AM this morning as off to Greece and although hubby took him I was still half awake at 1 when son got up and 2:30 when hubby got home
pathetic swim tonight as too tired and head was in the wrong place after some disturbing student news at sch. A yr9 student of mine is apparently so stressed she is seeing mental health dudes after trying to commit suicide
this week and next then 2 wks off (we do a 5 term year) and i can't wait. Will be able to train in day light and do full length swims without getting pool rage.
Hang in there EP.
Swim #6 for me tonight the first of the Build phase so a jump up to 3k. Completed in 59.30 with two bouts of calf cramp and feeling pretty knackered by the end. Hopefully I will adjust to the longer distance over the next few weeks. Still got to find a spot for the new third swim of the week which probably wont work on Friday evening (as per plan) so will need to look around the weekend for a slot...
