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
neither is mine! But hey I just want to finish in 16.59.59 or less
week 5 finished...........
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...........
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!
How you guys getting on with the weather?
Only had swimming and gym this week so far with a trainer ride tonight. My plan has a 2 hr run and a 3hr bike at the weekend which should be fun. No way can I spend 3hrs on the turbo.
Hagakure...........I have bben thinking about this and thinking that maybe I can do 3 x1 hour sessions instead of a single session...get up and eat and maybe sleep and then force myself back onto it.....
Swimming was cancelled tonight so ive missed both sessions this week due to weather, dissapointed with myself. kept up with the running and cycling though.
How about doing a long brick turbo session if not nice enough to ride outside this weekend something like 1hr turbo 30 run and repeat twice?
