STIL - oh, I see. Very impressive knowledge, I must say! So week 4 is bimble week, sort of?!

I'm just muddling through my training at the min - HIM Sept 2nd, but then GNR 2 weeks later and mara Oct 6th, with 10 days in Spain next week (not a training camp!!) - not got my head around a 'plan' for all that yet, other than building up the long runs and the long bikes. Did actually attempt an interval session on bike this morning, though!

Reckon I'll call Spain a periodisation, then?

Oooph... Meldy! Smoked it. Good effort.

I did notice the other bloke with the same name as me, Q, yes. The one who finished 13th instead of 58th? We're regularly confused by folk who can't tell the difference between the slow, fat one and the fast, skinny one. And I didn't get my traffic light time back .

You've got it, Brit. Week 4 is your Bimble week. Enjoy the paella!

The Eirias was a tough event. Take it easy, Tenby is the goal.

Tried one legged squats today, would hae been funny to watch!

Thats sounds a bit hardcore Mufin!!

Perhaps we should have a One LeggedSquat Winterleague

Not sure there would be a very big league table for one legegd squaters. Although much less pauinful than a timed 400m swim.

My core needs some serious work (just in case I do another)

I didnt find the 400 too bad ... perhaps I should try harder? 

One legged squats on the other hand ....   (or leg)
