Re-run of last year's thread for anybody doing any 2012 iron distance race
Swim and short hard bike for me today, made all the more fabulous by this lovely weather. Makes such a difference!!
Off to Tenby tonight and the plan is to cycle the first 2 loops of the IMW course tomorrow, just for old times sake. I learnt to love that course last year!!
Rest day yesterday after travelling back from France on Wednesday night.
Good swim set today with a killer bit of 10 x 100m as hard as possible. Total mileage of 3km. Due to run tonight but glutes are a bit sore, possibly from yesterday's massage. I think if I do run, it will be on the easy side. Also on a tri camp tomorrow but just for one day as I have other stuff on Sunday. Probably won't get a 4 H bike in this weekend but as I've had a pretty long week of training while I was away, I'm not overly concerned.
Had an enforced rest day today after struggling through the last two days training. 5 mile tempo run in the morning though followed by 30min swim/ 30min turbo/ 4k run mini triathlon, and a long ride on Sunday
Hopefully the weather will stay nice for the weekend aswell!!!
Chest infection seems to be clearing up so managed a 13 mile run, last couple of miles could feel the chest so took it easy but it was good to be out again. Such a lush day!
Hope, enjoy the IMW course, think you're a little bit mad
bad luck Max, hope it's nothing expensive
No training for me for last two days due to a cold
Hoping to get out on my bike tomorrow.
bad luck max
felt good to out last night, half hour turbo then 4 1/2 mile run, first time this year that I felt like a runner
you know one of then runs that you don't have to try for and you go so fast and everything seems to be working correctly for once
oops just realised, still logged in as Mrs SA, sorry, the above is from SA
Larne half marathon today. Quite warm and strong breeze off the sea, which was in the runners faces all the way home from the halfway point.
My pacing is shite as I went out with the wind mostly behind me to reach halfway in just over 57 mins. I came back on the tougher half with the wind in my face in under 53 minutes. WTF is that all about?
Still, it was a PB for me by over 4 minutes.
Max, sorry to hear of your day and mis-fortune. Sounds expensive and annoying.
VT'd great race, especially as you have trained hard on the run in.
I am really tired and hope it is just all the training and busy working catching up with me. Enjoy Saturday night all. Roast Belly Pork for me and a seldom seen good friend due to arrive soon.
Had my best weekend so far with fab10mile run yesterday and 40mile bike today. Have been suffering with chest infection for weeks but now seem over it .
Actually braved going out in Pirate kit to motivate myself!!
I feel so far behind where I was last year I can just tell it is going to be a hard slog just to get to the start line, but hey ho, If it was supposed to be easy everyone would do it.
Lots of chest infections going round by the sounds of it, glad your feeling better CD.
Did a 20 mile run earlier and with the weather being so sunny and amazing I loved it, that told my chest infection where to go
