I think fink is light on the bike, considering a good portion is spent on the bike in the race. I would rather sacrifice a swim each week for extra bike time, as I doubt I am going to get much quicker on the swim but I can on the cycle. I do all my cycle training on the turbo in the winter, as I can concentrate on my sessions without wondering if some idiot is going to knock me off my bike, ice etc etc. It also means I can kill each session to the max and if I can't go any furthur, I'm home already.
Nice day all round. Ali - try toothpaste for the saddle.
1st Sportive entered - the shorter 1 I will bike to giving me a 70m day. This is April so time to build up and hopefully get some more long rides in.
on the turbo I am so much better than the road
I more week of school then 2 off which means I'll be able to do 2 wks of runs which don't loop round the villiage, rides out on the road not in the garage and both in daylight! Plus I'll be able to go to the pool when it's quiet and not full of kids so proper swim time! Can't wait
Good going SlokeyJoe, sounds like a scenic route.
LSR done, legs felt heavy after yesterday's bike session but still managed 20k in 1h:32m. Rest day much needed tomorrow
LSR done, owwwwwwwwwww my legs they ached before I set off so knew it wouldn't be fun. But tis done only covered 6 miles but good practise of the Ironman shuffle!
I think I am dead
2hrs Turbo 41.25m average cadence 86 speed 20.6mph! No way I would get near that on the road
Then for some stupid reason I decided to do a 15mins run (a smidge over a mile)
Now officially dead and off to soak my painful legs in the bath. Tomorrow is gonna hurt I expect
it was beautiful here......a lovely long bike ride witha group so faster than i could ever do on my own.legs felt better than expected
Seren would I have past ou today? I was in the car going to Cardiff, passed a lot of bikers going between Merthyr and Brecon, I think one had an Ajax top on.
Went for a swim today, got there and the pool was closed unitl 2:30 because of water polo so had to kill a few hours in the cinema watching things being blown up 2k in the pool, was having bad cramp in my hands so cut the swim short.
Followed by a flat run along a canal tow path, nice and easy 10 miles.
broke.you might of....we had 5 groups out from ajax going that way as it was the reliability 100.......also joined by a few other clubs..i was in the slowest group but we were averaging 16 mph.............i wasn't in my pirate top though although i had my pirate water bottle
2K swim today. Bad night sleep last night despite being shattered after bike and today my calves have been tender thanks to the brick.
This is worrying as 1m after 2hrs is a long way off 26m after 112m!
2.7k swim and an hours run.......and a game of squash where i got injured
not a serious injury I hope seren?
no 'just a red mark on my ribs which happens to be the size of a squash ball......it was his only chance of getting a set off me
well done britsky
well done britsky............
I have just loked at fink for this week....how come i didn't notice that on the cmpetitive stage he goes from 1 to 3 brick sessions a week..thats an extra run, bike and swim a week.........
I know i won;t do the extra swim...but I now really need to get a bit more organised.......
ruh oh scooby step up week and I'm poorly. Off work yesterday with tummy upset which was OK as it was rest day but still not right today so no early morning swim. Add to that two social events wiping out 2 evening this week and no idea how I'm going to get it all done. Can't take any more time off work this week either.
