nice one pebble.  did you have teh powertap for IMF?  is that the standard plan people use for IM - 65% of ftp?
17/08/2008 at 11:47
No did not use the powertap at France, only bought  a few weeks ago, reading Coogans and Hunters book, 65% is a guideline for IM, so tried it yesterday, will try varying % over the next few weeks to see what I run like after them.

Well the Vit was another good brick session, same swim and bike times as before but the run was 10mins slower than 2 yrs ago (1:57), but I was running stronger at the end than when I ran quicker, if that makes sense. Finished in 5:07. Training this week has been 2 runs of 75mins with a 2hr run over the mountains on Saturday and a 3hr hard bike yesterday. Its been a hard couple of weeks so a few days off wont harm, back into it on Wednesday.

Me me me.

I'm still training too, although my half-iron this month was cancelled due to a pesky hurricane. I'm having trouble making myself do the long bikes at the moment, so need to get that sorted over the next few weeks. Arizona is starting to loom a bit!

When is Arizona?

Arizona is on the 23rd of November

This is also an option for me now next year, Pebble, am requesting a full race report please, I have read Candy's but I get halfway through and can't see the rest for the tears in my eyes !!

I hope its going OK for the training, the course looks like your strengths are going to be utilised but I suspect even you will admit that you may need to back off the bike by .5mph to give yourself a better chance of running off the back ? Has that crossed your mind or are you going to blast the bike and survive the run ?

Arizona is on the 23rd of Novembercould of fitted a few more TTs in then.

Rosey - this IS Pebble you're talking about! he's never knowingly not blasted the bike - even though I beat him at Florida but he still couldn't fecking run and catch me!! this man has negative splits - longer run than bike......LOL!!

 he's never knowingly not blasted the bike

Nah he slows down,  takes the p*ss, then blasts off.

FB, you are pressing all the right buttons, I'm gunning for your Florida time.

Nah, I hoping that all the little lessons I've learnt will come together, and it will click come race day. We will see.

Rosey, have you considered IM Mexico (29/11/09) next year?  Not sure how many slots they'll have given its a first year.
16/09/2008 at 17:12
anything that time of year would be good but might be a bit far for airplane recovery, 13 hrs+ some of the flights, nothing is discounted though, thanks for reminding me, slots will probably be more round the 50 mark I would suspect
