thanks to all you guys on here talking about swimming motivated me to go do my second swim of the week - it is the one session every week that I can always find an excuse to miss.

 

so - thanks

First check on here in the best part of a week as I missed all swimming ladt week, wussed out of last Saturday's and Tuesday's run. This put me in such a foul mood and I really questioned my resolve. However, solid brick Wednesday, bike and swim yesterday and I think I have my mojo back!

So, in true Jerry Springer format, it looks like some of us have had a mid plan blip, but that is part of the game. We WILL get over it and come July get payback on this mutha' for the last 30 weeks of effort!

Hardly Vincent Lombardi but hopefully you get my drift. Might still be a little giddy from last nights swim. First in 2 weeks, simple zombie swim and managed 2.9k in 52min until they kicked me out of the pool for closing time!

GymAddict, I am averaging once a week too. Plenty on here think the plan is a little swim heavy (which is all the excuse I need). I plan on throwing a second in when OW starts again and gives me some more convenient time to go, rather than the silly local pool times (which is currently limited to 9pm to 10pm on a Thursday)

Well long run done followed by swim. Both rubbish. Legs very tired, so a slow run and I forgot my drink which was dumb because then when I went straight swimming I kept getting cramp in my toes so gave up after 21mins!! What a waste, but amazingly my swim speed after 12 miles run was the same as normal.

Anyway, it's done and a rest day tomorrow.

Rest day today.  Woo Hoo.  Going out for beers and curry tonight.  So keeping to nutritional plan as well.

Got long run tomorrow and 3 hr bike Sunday (including local 25m TT).

Weeks training finished - hallelujah - rest day tomorrow then it all starts again.

One swim, one bike, two runs this week, and one killer I.T. band sports massage - bruised and battered with a 20 mile race (hah - race?!!) on Sunday. 

I seem to get phantom injuries before races - this is the third time I have been in agony with an injury that came on with no trauma, makes walking really painful, and then, well the last two times (last year's 20 mile race and GNR this year) just disappeared, the evening before race day.

Hoping the hot poker pain I'm getting in my knee right now is another example  and that come tomorrow evening I'll be right as rain again ...?

Feeling rather deflated - had planned a turbo session after work, but after a cr@p week at work slept instead -

3 hr cycle and 2.4 mile swim today. I'm ballbagged!

I have thge weekend off as I'm taking my mother to my caravan to set it up ready for easter......if i take the food etc now then hopefully we can fit into one car when we go......

if i was going with my family i would take my running kit but as its my mother and its a wet weekend i won't bother......

just got 2 sessions in this week of running, swimming and cycling......but managed to get the important long bike and run in.......so not worrying

3 hours in the bike done. A cold, wet and bloody dangerous (thank you drivers of Cheshire) 90k covered. First time I have headd to on the flats, rather than the Peaks of Derbyshire and hey presto, my average kmph is up by 5! Think i will keep alternating as I find the hills more fun and a little less life threatening!

3hr 30min bike done today so the weeks not a total loss. Very slow but I blame the winds you know it bad when you're struggling on the small ring downhill. Figured it was good Outlaw practise!

Well that was a bike ride from hell! Went out for a 70 miler and it rained for most of it, which in itself was ok but with about 20 miles to go the rain just came down so heavily that it was dangerous and I was so cold I couldn't move my fingers. Quite a hilly route and having put the bike in the small ring I then couldn't change it back again. Eventually had to use my right hand to lean over and grab the lever over.

By the time I got home I was in tears and couldn't get any clothes off because my hands were so numb. Was biting the fingers of my gloves to pull them off before realising I was biting my finger!! My mum had to help me undress

Needless to say my run straight after never happened.

BIG glass of wine tonight

SS - well done for getting out there!

20 mile race today - way slower than last year, but considering the inadequate preparation due to injury was delighted to have finished strong and smiling - thus making Blackpool mara in 3 weeks a possibility. Dead chuffed to be running long and pain-free at last
