Not even your mind could be *that* bad ....
a couple of long and hilly cyclosportives will also give you the mental strength to do race day. The lumpier the better. Yes it will hurt and be slow, but when you turn up the outlaw ride you will know that you get smash a long and hilly ride - so a long and flat ride on race day is going to be a doddle.
Oh, and you don't have to ride through the rainy night like Seren - that's just plain daft!
it was apropriate for the race.....and as you won't be cyclinbg at night in Ironman wouldn't be appropriate for IM training.........
but its the same thing..when you want to bail out because you are tired.........then try and keep going.................and i mean tired not ill..illness needs to be asesssed diffferently
where is everyone... I don't believe everyone is out training - not in this weather! Shopping perhaps?
Pb'd in this weather.you weren't at our muddy one then
I so need to get out on my bike
I was up checking my drunken son was ok
but up for real now and still thinking I need to get out on my bike
2 amd a hal;f hours on the bike.week 2 training kicked into touch............bring on wek 3
i been training really hard this week - loads of Gladys Pies and alcohol, im trainign for the pre event warm up
that's what I mean about base training - it's so important to get this right over the winter....
Is there a prize for the person who gets injured first? I'm hobbling into week 3 with a recurrent Achilles injury that's doing my nut in. But I shall not implode just yet.
Current training is normal for swim and bike. Runs are all replaced by aqua running (which is also training in mental stamina as it's the most boring activity on earth) at the same target zone, combined with lots of stretches/physio/foam roller type stuff.
Anyone else having having a wonky moment?
