ill be starting tonight as Im well fcuk'd off with the ankle injury I picked up last week.
turbo session to get the blood flowing. 60 minutes, no coasting.
lots of bike this week while the ankle gets fully mobilised and then gentley back into it - but with a little form. no more shuffling like a coffin dodger.
I've just been looking at the fink training plan and basically the swim sessions are all an hour long but increase in distance by about 500m every 10 weeks. That's a whopping increase in speed
running postie.........don't panic i could not cycle till the february or run till the march when i did my first Ironman.................and I still managed to pick them both up enough to do the race.........better not to rush these things............when it was starting to heal i started doing the run sessions as walks....so if it said run 60 mins i would walk for 60 mins.....flat to start with and then building up a few hills.......i think that really helped
Its not definite yet, RP - OH says I can go, but my boss may say no - meeting with him tomorrow to find out whether I can or not ...
I had that injury last year - had to lots of heel dips off stairs ... ? Ended up with orthotics that gave instant relief, and have stuck with them ever since
What ^ said
EP - maybe when you breathe you are slowing yourself down?
EP I had on 5 layers today and was 'just right". I think I'm a wimp tho. 40 miles on the bike and I fell off 50meters from home I live at the top of a hill (good for lots of rain - not so good for cycling up!!) and I just got to the part where it levelled out. I thought I'd got a puncture so tried to look at back wheel and braked a bit but I was going so slow and I'm not totally sure what happened but all of a sudden I was lying on my back (on a grass verge) with my bike on top.Husband looked concerned but all was well and I lay there laughing my head off Nobody saw and I just got up and walked bike home (chain had come off)
First fall clipped in and please may it be the last.
My toes froze too. Had trainer socks and merino wool socks but I have some thermal overshoes on their way.
Fingers frozen but ok after about 5 miles.
Lovely day but shattered now.
Britrisky - I thought under SABRE they couldn't? It's been a while since I read through it though....
Sunny day with light wind here; a nice 8 miler in my lunch hour.
EP - You can swim 4.5k in 2hr 15? Did you have a torpedo?
IM in training - I like the sound of that
IronCat - no, SABRE can only advise and encourage, but their only powers are if employees are actually deployed, and as a musician that's never gonna happen!!! Sunny Hull, it is, then
Good going though EP.
Brit - my current employer is based in the US, so very pro-Mil and ensure one is never out of pocket. Previous employer gave me 2 weeks extra unpaid hol. Horses for courses!
Anybody heard any rumblings about extending the entry beyond the initial 1,000? I'm currently without a race entry for next year but on the reserves list for this one. Tempted to jump on something else, just in case.
Are the Finkers ready to rumble?
Week 1 - Outlaws ... rrrrreadyyyy!!!
