I am the same with the marathon training meaning a bit of a lack of bike training... except I havent really been run training either!!

Longest runs are 1 x 15 mile and about 4 x 11 miles.... and VLM is only 6 weeks away!!! I have normally ran about 3 x 18 mile runs now and would thinking about getting in  3 x 20+ mile runs over the next 3 weeks!

Windy and very wet 60 mile ride done.   But have to confess to stopping off for a sausage sarnie and coffee half way round 

better get in the pool for the first time in months soon!

Turbo and a run at silly o'clock for me today.

Pingu, I almost text you yesterday to see if you fancied a bike ride soon. Let me know if you're up for it.

I really need to start getting some long bike miles in. Lets hope for some nice weather for the next few weekends. I'm *so* over the drowned rat look!

Yipppeeeee a rest day ... altough my first rest day of the set means I have to get up at 5am to go to work ...!!
08/03/2012 at 08:25
Amen to that Cake!!! Can actually see some sunshine in the Costa del Kent today!!!

Recover well WW.

Little spin on the turbo last night, and the same planned for tonight.

Planning to do this week's long run as my commute, so just over 10 miles each way. Anyone got an opinion on how effective a split long run is compared to doing the whole lot in one go?

10 mile run into work this morning, lovely day for it, over dressed as usual and ended up way to hot.

I have a blister on the side of my foot now.  I NEVER get blisters, wtf is that all about.  I've run much further distances in the same shoes recently so why blister now.  Hurrumph ...

I know having a total no training week is doing me good injury wise. BUT I am climbi g up the walls with supressed energy currently speedwalking everywhere :/)

Climbing up the walls should probably count as training I would think!

Missing a load of sessions this week, due to work and a dodgy alarm clock. Haven't got a proper swim in for 2 weeks, only cycled one day this week so far and 2 runs of just 45 and 50 mins. Hope to get back on track tomorrow with my long run (11 miles planned) before work and then a 30 min lunchtime swim.
