oh right BBT....i read that session wrong....don't see the point in doing a shorter bike before the long run unless you put them together really............will reread what he says........

yes BBt Bike science.must get up early........he only did the basic fit on my old bike and that was a really good job so was not willing to get on my new bike until he has fiddled with it

Just realised that its a cutback week next week............

Nice, strange that its just 2.5 hour cycle this week though?

I've had plenty of time to train this week and done all the fink sessions plus a bit extra including the rest day already. Shall do some additional cycling tomorrow maybe with a short run brick added on.

Must try to cut back next week though

Struggling to find the time with work and family myself. This training doesn't half put strain on your personal life!

I'm finding it difficult to get all teh sessions in. The next two weeks will be really hard as I'm travelling around between hotels and working in teh day and at night. I've been looking for local tri / swim / run clubs but they only have sessions in evenings - which is when I'm working.

Kendal, Liverpool, Sheffield, Stoke this week

I know one hotel at least has a pool, but its 12m long I'm just going to have to try and focus on the run sessions, get a good long bike on Thursday (hopefully the 63 nile Cheshire Cat route) and then make up swim sessions on Friday / Sat / Sun.

Roll on 2 weeks when I get back to bristol and access to sensible swim sessions

lungs hurting from cold air, eyes sore from wind tears and even my drink made with hot water thinks it's got ice cubes in.

Just checked the pool timetable

Monday 9-12 public swim - yippee

lunchtime lanes 12 - 1:15 double yippe

but the rest of the week is only lunchtime lanes and swimming lessons. booo hiss

I has wanted to get a couple of long slow swims in doing race distance in the afternoons when hubby was at work

back to the drawing board and planning again

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
