Lol, yes, flats best
Ahem, I *think* Hills are Friends?
I'm training in the flatlands of Suffolk. The wind yesterday provided a good test and after 66 miles I was completely knackered.I used to think I was good at biking but IMA and my hope of improving on times set in Florida (2011) and Outlaw (2012) is becoming and increasingly daunting prospect.Bugger.
I think there might be wibbles in the air this week. I've been panicking at the lack of training over the last few weeks and the realisation there is just 14 weeks to go.
But, at the same time, 14 weeks is still enough to turn stuff around so fingers crossed.
I'm not wibbling - but I may be quite close to denial
14 weeks? Yikes!!!!
Approximately 2,317 hours (96 days) or roughly the same amount of time it'll take some of us to cover the 140.6 miles.
Hi Robbie, how's the foot?
Can't make up my mind which sounds best; 14 weeks, 96 days or 2317 hours
96 days definitely sounds worst. That caused me to clench my ass cheeks.
Was looking at Kinetic Revolution website yesterday and there's a section on injury and rehabwhich might be worth a look.
Hiya Robbie. Been doing a reasonable amount of cycling, made it up to the dizzy distance of 3.5miles running and haven't swum for about a month - though I've bought a new wetsuit and am considering visitng a lake tomorrow morning.
Even the official website doesn't seem to be sure of the ascent. Course description says 1680m but the ''virtual' route map says 1430m
Wide awake after slightly bracing OW swim! Actually wasn't too bad after the intially shock on entry. Took it steady, partly cos I've not swum at all for about a month, partly cos of the temperature.
Don't think I'm that bothered about water temperature - though I'd prefer a wetsuit swim. However, I'd like the daytime temperature on race day not to exceed about 25C with low humidity. Scorching will definitely not be welcome.
Oh, and new wettie is very comfortable
Following several weeks avoiding running with a "dodgy" (as technically diagnosed) foot, I managed last week a 3, 5 & 6 mile runs without immediate issue.Planned 13 miler on Monday dodged because of "creaky" Achilles. Two days of rest. It's now back on the cards, this evening.Make or break (hopefully not for Achilles) but for my run-training prospects.If anyone's following Fink, are we now supposed to have entered “peak” phase of training?!
I would have thought so PRW, 10 week base, 10 week build and 7 week peak before 3 week taper? With 10 weeks to go (gulp) I know coming into May we have a decent increase in mileage
