Matt no offence but I am so glad you said that
I'm on my 3rd week now of crapness
2weeks of half a week training then giving in to lurgy /bleugh feeling followed by full blown cough/cold
I almost managed a whole night without coughing last night but have coughed today but a lot less than the last few days so may try a pottery walk tomorrow - I have a 70m ride to do 2 wks Sunday and am well down on training so that will be a big mental ride
then swimathon 2 wks later (5K)
Just hope I haven't messed up now
I always said my target was 16hrs 59mins but I may add the extra 59 secs to it nowI'm sure the rest will do us good!!
Annoyed and upset to find my local garage is closing with immediate effect - only booked car in yesterday for Tuesday. It's 3m away so a great run there/back and no need to faff with lifts. Had planned to take bike and do a ride out on some new roads this time but now I've got to find a new garage and ASAP as I don't want to use a chain as I prefer local business
Plenty of time to go. Nothing to worry about. And if all else fails, and you don't get to the peak of fitness you hoped for, there's plenty of regular contributors to this forum who can vouch for having completed this race well enough despite being in pretty unathletic shape.
Come on people
If you cant run, go for a brisk walk, if you cant ride outside, get on the turbo or get on a bike at the gym, anything us better than nothing.
Nobody is going to get you out the door, only you can do that.
Well I've done b....r all this week
45min run monday
1hr swim tues
35 min run wed
45min run fri
2hr run sunday (race) hopefully 1hr 59m 59s
But I'm chilled about it. Training been going ok up to now (I think)
Am also really hungry all the time
My mentor told me to drink milk - it seems to have helped
MTFU everyone. It's not a knitting club.
I feel like I'm eating 24x7 and I'm only training for sprint tris!
30 ish mins staggering and coughing done - was needed for my sanity but HR and lungs not impressed
will probably go for a long walk tomorrow as it wasn't as awful as I expected
