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

Seren - just checked resting HR and its pretty normal. Maybe it was the cold this morning. I'll wear more layers next time and see how it goes ...

... Or maybe I should take a week off work, just to be on the safe side

so I go a newsletter mail from one step beyond...

'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.....


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!

I am glad you are enjoying it.
Aerobic training is hard because of the volume not the intensity. if you enjoy it then getting the volume in at z2 brings lots of rewards as you can get massively fit from it.

One of the major problems is having a low boredom threshold.
It takes time to do the consistent training, and it takea time for tje rsults to start to show....

I like the idea of no zeros...(found it in the recent endurance corner book)
Ie instead of aiming to see how much training you can do, concemtrate on not missing any - ie do something every day.
Not sure how that fits with 1 day off a week for recovery, but you get the idea...

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

My base started 3 weeks too late after illness and idleness.

Oh well, best make the most of what we've got left.

Scary indeed.  I had planned to start a few weeks in and repeat some of the early weeks, but thanks to bubonic plague I'm back to following the plan as it's written.  No bad thing, it's quite enough of a challenge as it is.

better to get the illnesses over and done with early...........

13/01/2013 at 18:08

More than halfway through base training?! Oh goodness, I was starting to get used to training and week 6 already....You're right Seren, positive thing about being injured now is that hopefully I'm getting it over with and will be okay to walk the mara!
