Sorry a missed your posts.......Cheers

I've actually started training with a bike ride last sunday a chill hilly 27 miles

Anyone doing any of the Fink plans, starting 7/01/13? I am going to follow the intermediate plan and just hope that I can cope with the demands of the swimming program. I should be fine with the running and cycling but I am really struggling with the swimming despite 3 - 4 sessions per week.

If anyone fancies reccying the bike course over the coming months then give me a shout. I am going to give it go over the Christmas / new year period. Fortunately for me I live in Winwick which is not too far from Pennington Flash.   

Not that I am a copy cat or anything but we could start a Fink for IMUK 2013 thread.

hi Steve,

Yeh i am doing a version/variation of Fink.  I have planned weekends as per Fink and kinda moulded my weeklys to suit some club stuff.

I have started already as i needed to allow for for some time away over chrimbo and some buffer time for illness....i have now already used up 4 days with the onslaught of MANFLU in full effect, so hopefully back to it tomorrow!

I know what you mean about swimming, i feel like i have cracked the breathing but still need some more elements to click.  I started having a few lessons but the chap went away for quite a few weeks.  Will be glad to get some more pointers soon!  (But i am deffo in a better place swimming wise than 2 months ago!)

FLU stuff sucks!

Yep, I'm using Fink Competitive, starting on 7th.  Swimming coming along slowly but surely.  Coach got in water with us on Thursday and one look at me underwater and she put right some wrongs, went from 28 strokes per length to 22 instantly.  Still lots to do...

17/12/2012 at 19:47

Wow, good stuff!

28 to 22 sounds like quite a jump !

If i can get to pool tomorrow i will now start counting!

I have counted breaststroke but not front....hopefully 'Farmer (as my youngest daughter calls him!) Christmas' will bring me a 910 and solve the counting problem (bloomin tricky to count strokes in the pool for some reason!).

Please don't ask me to count as well as breathe, catch, pull, rotate, oh and do 4 beat kick keeping my feet togther.

On a serious note, well done DTT a massive instantaneous gain.

Tyler, good to hear that you are on the road to recovery. Pleasing to note also that your swimmimg is improving.     

A very interesting 8 months to follow, for us all, with plenty ups and downs in prospect.

Yep, it's going to be fun, really looking forward to it.

I'm planning one lap on Sunday morning if you or anyone is up for it

Woody2run, would love to join you, but I'm afraid that I am working on Sunday.  Have a good run out.

ride outdoors???? in the cold?????? i'll see you all about March.

 

Cats in for it woody by the way so you'll see us plenty out on the course this year....(though after what was virtually a year off for me you'll have to wait till i catch up)

Flu- Day 3!

Bit the bullet and went doctors, now on antibiotics, on the plus side my swim teacher is back on the scene and fingers crossed i should be healthy for christmas!

Sounds good to me Andy. and look forward to it meeting up. Have to agree It's bloody cold! I'm not into winter road cycling but as you know, I don't normally start bike training until summer. This time however I'm determined to give it my best shot with proper training.

TT Hope things pike up soon.

Great swim last night, 400m crawl without stopping, a real breakthrough.  And now, a mince pie.  

19/12/2012 at 14:33

And well earned
