You got out, EP, and that's the main thing, and that's not a failure

How far to another pool ... is it worth a longer drive for a longer swim?

10.5 miles at pretty much 10m/m pace. I'm happy with that, especially as its blooming cold out there, I've got a bit of a cold coming, and I think I was suffering slight after effects from last nights party

Nasty headwind for a lot of the run, and seemed surprisngly uphill for a towpth. Not to mention the wet foot from losing a shoe in the mud

Finally running again. Not quite fully injury free but best week in 6months and hit every swim, bike AND run session for the first time this week.

well done slokey Joe...

Good but very cold long bike yesterday followed by a 20 min run. My feet were numb for the whole run and I felt like I was running backwards it was so slow but when I looked at my times it was normal pace

A good training week last week but away for the next weekend and 4 days off

SS.i thought my run pace was ok........but then after the 15 mins i looked at my watch and my HR was high

25/02/2013 at 13:06

Finally managed to get out on the bike on Saturday morning, most of my training has been on the turbo.

Managed 30 miles in 3 hours.

Nowhere as good as I'd have liked and I had to walk the bike up two hills.

I'm planning to try a flatter route on Thursday as I've got the day off so have time get out and put some bike miles in.

Did my first race of the year yesterday. Yeovil Aquathlon. 12 minute swim for 500m, 31 minutes for the run including transition, really enjoyed it, especially flying down the steep hill on the way back to the finish.

well done on the aquathon JvR.......I would definitely get out on the bike as much as the weather allows for the long rides.the turbos really can't compare for the long can get away with shorter interval type sessions.........

25/02/2013 at 13:29

long way of target for me now. switching to finishing unless i can double the duration of everything im doing my march


25/02/2013 at 13:56

Du was fun but I was last by quite a margin 9 mins! Alos went back through previous years results and I'm officaly last of all of them.  Got a LOT to work on still! But I feel I erant some bonus points for turning up, after all it was snowing. HR was not in Z2 but don't quite know where it was a messed up my garmins and lost the bike info completly. All good practise though.

I think longer distances will suit me best. I'm a plodder not a sprinter. Was pleased with my snowy bike on Saturday though and got the garmin sat nav to work so all good.

Thanks Seren. I'm going to have to try and get out as much as I can during the time I've got available when at home. I was using the just finish plan anyway so I've looked at the number of hours that I have to do for each of the disciplines each week between now and the end of April. I'm going to aim to do the long ride for each week and then combine the rest of the week's cycling into a single ride. Hopefully this will be enough to improve my cycling enough for the day.

I've had a brief discussion with one of the managers about how long I'm going to be working where I am. He's happy for me to go back to my normal office when I've had enough of the traveling, just as long as I give them a few weeks notice. I'm thinking that I'll stick with it until the end of April which will give me a couple months following Finks before July.
