tri novice having IM thoughts
Can you get them to join in with you Britrisky? Outlaw is too early in the season for me I'm afraid. I'm hypothyroid and feel the cold very badly so those long bikes just wouldn't happen unless we have an unseasonably warm spring and whilst I can cope with the odd four hour turbo session I can't face a campaign that consists almost entirely of them. Almere for me next year I think, second weekend in September, gives me all of the summer to train, much easier!
Bog swimming tonight with ST - just had a mail to say it may be over 24 in which case no wettie so gonna wear tri kit to test that out.
will be interesting to see what difference it makes to my breathing!
I can't believe ST!
Stood me up OW swimming last week and now he's too chicken this week with it possibly being no wettie!
Did you have to register with the local tri club to swim at MB?,
no you have to be a BTA member but not a tri club
£3 to get into the water park then for guests it's either £2:50 or £3 to swim
you need to sign your life away too!
Fancy it then?
I do... but at £6.00 a session ........ and I haven't bought a wettie yet. I may keep to my pool sessions till next season. Hmmmmmmmm
The quicker you get in the open water the better it will help. Althrough if you wait until it's nice and cold your are going to find bargin's for wetsuits if you shop around all the exhire ones will be sold off ready for next year.
Can't say I blame him Pixie - you wouldn't get me in without a wettie unless it was a race either! I made the most of weather and circumstance today, my longest run since VLM then, as plans with a friend fell through, another couple of hours on the bike. Was tempted to head to the pool for a full house but decided to be sensible as nearly five hours worth of training is the most I've done in a day for a while.
biked to MB then did 2 big laps. SOOOOO much better without the wettie! I was able to breathe and swim.
Started off dodgy again thinking no way was I doing 1 big lap but half way round it started going OK.
Stopped for some fluid then did a 2nd lap and despite going really wide was 3 mins quicker.
Speaking to a couple of ladies after it seems I am off home to enter FB!!
Go EP - you've really got the bit between your teeth
want to make the most of the summer hols so that, hopefully, when I get back to school I just carry on
also being fitter should make me feel less tired and better
plus I want to get a good base fitness
plus it's fun!
And rest! Today I will be doing active recovery whilst shopping due to son deciding to grow and need a tonne of new stuff for school huh
seem to have entered - number 122 so hurry up ST seeing as it's your fault I've entered!!
7m long run - longest run since VLM10!
Well where has this week gone?
After Sunday's run I gave blood and the nurse was brutely. Arm was hurting all night and next day but no bruise to show for the pain
Anyway Monday and Tuesday I was away on a teaching ICT conference in Crewe - 2hr drive there, and all day sat down mainly in a cramped lecture hall plus next to no sleep Monday night meant that yesterday I was more tired, tight and lathargic than last week when I OTT'd on training!
I went out for a planned 3-4m yesterday but calves and legs said NO so i did 1m jog and a couple of miles walking instead.
Tonight should be OW but I've run out of contacts so can't see to swim! Hope to pop out for a brick session this afternoon.
Feeling very lazy this week plus guilty at not doing school work even though it is the holiday!!
Oh and just resubscribed to 220 for 1yr to meaning I'll have inspiration up to the Outlaw! Oh and a free transition bag too
off to read Fink some more whilst drinking my tea before brick! Then back to watch the cycling
Wasn't Bradley Wiggins amazing yesterday?
cancel that ... was getting kit out and it went very dark very sudden and now someone is holding a hose against my windows. It's that dark I've had to put the lights on
5mins later and I would have drowned
