Pixie........Haven't you got the hubby on board......important foir the first one......last saturday mine had to go out just after 5 am for his long run so that he was back in time for me to go and meet broke for the training run/bike.......even though saturday is his main running day and i do try and make it a rest day....
welkl done Lard on getting in the session early.....
do you take your resting heart rate in the mornings Brit.............I have started taking it and it definitely showed that i was going down with something last week...( sometimes shows when overtraining )...and when i exercised my heart rate was well too high for a couple of days........
you then have the choice of resting more.slowing down with the training .... or just going to a higher heart rate...........i think you have to be careful with your choices......
I would keep an eye on it
Well done Sarge on getting in
Off to do my 2nd swim of the week. This will actually only be the first time I've done 2 swims in a week
If you are becoming ill your heart will know before you do, so perhaps the symptoms haven't shown yet?
EP - I am also a teacher, and made a decision that this week would be an easy week training wise because of the extra stress of being back at school. It has worked for me, and means I won't feel guilty about not doing sessions and will be fairly fresh for next week
you do need OH to be on board though or it will cause all kinds of problems
Maths I think the main issue is that I've had 2 wks of 9+hrs sleep a night so 6-7 is bad! Plus as you say getting back to things. Today has been awful and ended in the last 10mins of the last lesson of the day with a student waiting for his mum to take him to A&E having managed to trip in class and cut his face so badly it need stitches!
Hubby just thinks I'm mad and doesn't say a word but I feel guilty about taking too much time out which is why I traing each morning but this week has just been a fail!
Just checked the pool time table for a swim tomorrow night and from 12 lunch it's booked for swimming lessons and clubs until closing time! Great!
Oh well have new pirate kit now so have to train! The bike jacket needs to be worn! Plus I have to take the lad swimming as he's doing the swimathon so I have an excuse
my garmin went stupid when it was really cold last year
the HRM strap is apparently iffy after -5
ohhhh shittake mushroooms.....
Just checked the 'entries to date' and their I am, on the list. entered. officially IN.
im too excited to understand/care how much this is going to hurt.
so I go a newsletter mail from one step beyond...
Outlaw'those 250 people on the waiting list have now ALL got a place in the Outlaw'
Now.... I am sure I put myslf on the waiting list, but I can't find an email confirming it....... and no email yet from OSB asking me to pay money.....
Seren... If I'm in, do you want to race.....?I'll be off the bike first but will be 50-50 run walking the marathon on no run training so you can hunt me down!
If you had to hop it i think you would beat me OC..........but bring it on.....
I've had the best 5 weeks of training ever.........if i can get another 25 like this i will whip your arse OC
every time i go swimming i tell myself as lonh as i do 20/30 mins then thats better than zero.....and have managed to do the full hour each time
Off to do a different park run today......will run it with my OH and then he will run home to make up his long run...he understands me wanting to get the sessions in as he always gets his running sessions in
Week 5 done and dusted with 2 bikes combined into 1 (bike to town, faffage, bike home!) and 1 long swim instead of 2 short ones. (1m in 30mins is never gonna happen so 1hr swum!)
Next week sees the 1st of the brick sessions and ice/snow predicted. I see plenty of turbo time and trail shoes on pavements for more grip! I will get 2 swims in this week
EP - see, your training has picked up already
it's scarey to think we're on week 6 now and base is almost over!
yep. scarey was what I was thinking it should be called. my base isnt ready yet
