I need a kick start. I've had three weeks off with very little training due to illness, bad weather, motivational disadters and so on.

I need to find my mojo. I just don't know where I last saw it

I've still got time to get the training in I need to get round, but that time is running out rapidly. At least I have a 90+ mile ride in 2 weeks. SHould be interesting

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

We'll get round EP! I may not get the most training in. I may end up slow and towards the back, but I'll finish. Somehow!

I always said my target was 16hrs 59mins but I may add the extra 59 secs to it now
I'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.

Me and you being 2 there

I'm actually on the flip side of this at the moment and maybe this is because I've joined the party late but I'm loving the training and have just started the twice a day training, I just cant believe how hungry its making me.

+1 for the hungry, does anyone else find that after a big session the next door or more so on a rest day you just want too eat everything including the plate?

Plenty of time to turn it around but unless you are dying on your a*se its time to get a grip and get on with it if the weathers crap so what wrap up warm if its snowy get the MTB out and get off road or turbo, this is the time when motivation dips and you just have to slog through it , i am glad i am having an IM break this year but sm still training for a Half IM and an Ultra and i am having the same motivation problems and have had to give myself a good talking to

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.

SA and Jamie, thank god it is not just me. I am getting through 3 good size meals a day and still have a constant hunger. I am currently having a a twice a day week of training due to a break next week and I'm bloody ravenous. Just had a nice spag bol dinner but babysitting for the 2 little ones tonight. As soon as wifey is out of the door...I am ordering a pizza!

My mentor told me to drink milk - it seems to have helped

LOL I'm going through at least 3 apples and 3 bananas a day at the moment whilst sat at my desk. Trying not to snack at night is my problem

MTFU everyone. It's not a knitting club.

I feel like I'm eating 24x7 and I'm only training for sprint tris!

I eat anything in my path in side this slim atheletic pirate if a massive fat barsteward screaming to get out
As long as you burn the cals training its not a prob
But just like a car if you put crap fuel in it wont run properly so keep the junk down
+1 for milk after long seshs big fan of low fat choccie milk

I've had a mental week this week.... I am going to enjoy munching this Easter!

sun - 16 mile road race (top 10% finish ) + 45 min swim

Mon - 2 hour turbo fest focusing on keeping a high rpm (100+ or so)

Tues - off

Wed - 105.4 mile ride, 2.5 km swim

Thurs - 26 mile ride, 13 mile run at IM pace with negative splits, 1 hour swim

Fri - 1 hour swim, 1 hour fast turbo

Sat - looking at 8 miles run inc a park run and a 80 miler on the bike

Sun - long ass run all I can do family etc

Sadly I had too pull out of outlaw I'm really focusing on the British middle dist champs, then challenge Henley... I plan on doing outlaw next year and am aiming for the sub 10.... Hopefully a strong ride and a steady run can allow this, looking at 5:15 for the ride and about 3:10 for the mara.... Time will tell
