Re-run of last year's thread for anybody doing any 2012 iron distance race
Nice going Will.
1 hr swim for me and now off to bed!
Keeping up my new, smug-worthy habit of an early morning swim on my once-weekly journey to the office. Bit frustrated that, despite training all winter, and feeling like I'm swimming much, much better, my times aren't progressing. Even when wearing a rubber hat!
Enjoyed a tolerably miserable session this morning based on 200m intervals. Looking forward to open water and the steroid-like properties of a wetsuit.
Had a good weekend but struggling a bit since. Did a four hour bike into a 30 minute run on Saturday, but the pace was slow for both.
Had promised to take a group out on Sunday and to my surprise we managed 3 hours, however the sudden increase in biking is taking it's toll on me this week. I struggled through my 3km set in the pool yesterday, going to the back of a lane I'd usually lead. Did a strength session at lunch time but just couldn't run last night, too tired. Did my 45 minute bike into 30 minute run this morning but again the pace was sluggish and I'm feeling wrecked now so may end up taking an extra rest day. Off to France on Friday for what I hope will be 5 days of solid training. Happy enough with training but have severe doubts about beating last years time.
word of caution Max
if you want a refund, they don't give it back until after the event.
Mrs SA is in the same boat, can't run, she has a dead line of end of March as to final decision
Max - really feel for you matey. I still can't run. I was diagnosed as having dehydrated discs a few years back. A few weeks back the sciatica came back with vengeance. I am able to swim and cycle, but running is impossible. Each time i attempt to run i get a pulling sensation in my calf, with numbness in my leg. Wish there was a "quick-fix" solution but just have to give it time to heal. Its Outlaw decision time for me at the end of the month
