For those not yet up to IM
They will get their come uppance when I get back to swimming doing FC really fast or my biggest revenge will be when I do one length of butterfly, I drown anything within 2 metres of my lane with the splashing, can't ever do more than one length though, its a tough stroke.
You win! There are a couple of parkruns I could try. The nearest is only 7km each way, but not a route I cycle regularly.
It's probably a good thing that the cycle should be relatively undemanding, as 5km is at the limit of my current running ability. I should get round without walking, but genuinely could come last, though probably not miles behind.
Ooooh! What a great challenge! I'm a great fan of ParkRun (it's the only time I ever meet other runners) and am going on Saturday. But can't join you guys cos I will be taking at least one daughter so won't be cycling.
New Shoes! Yes they were great. Ran 4 miles in them this eve and they didn't rub Swam 46 lengths today too. Tried some 'drills'. No idea if I was doing them right but it was hard work so must be doing some good.
I have the same quandry about sponsorship. I love running and since I can't fit in any more hours than I'm already doing most of my races are 5k or 10k and they don't seem such a challenge cos I can easily do the distance. Am considering doing the Oly tri for sponsorship though. The does seem like a challenge!
Razor good to hear that your 'get up and go' came back!
ST - tonight was my first run in three days and I was so desperate to get out there, I know that after a week I start going loopy.
Not sure what I'll do tomorrow. Got an awful lot to fit into the day and am trying to work out where I can carve 30-60mins to do some training. At least the workmen have now finished. We've had double glazing fitted on the front half of the house that didn't have any. I'm shattered from hours of cleaning a film of red dust from everywhere. But the house is now mostly clean. And best of all we have already noticed a reduction in noise and draughts!
this thread moves so fast i loose track!
small recovery run yesterday.. then tried to go to the pool at 6:15 this morning but it was closed due to healh and safety ... a light fitting had shattered over the deep end of the pool!!!! so no swimming for me so far today.. Will do a bike ride this evening if i can't get in the pool
No, they are all over the country: http://parkrun.com/home.aspx
I did a mini-tri at lunchtime - cycled to the pool and back for a swimble, then tagged on a short plod at the end.
Got circuit training tonight.
I've got circuit training tonight too! I was going to do a bit of cycling before/after, but I figure I am still in recovery, and have got some funny aches and pains, so will just do the class.
Congrats on the mid-week tri Yersinia!
Ooh, circuit training - what a killer!
Managed a decent run last night but no speed work - 7.5km in 35mins. Felt OK, going to try speedwork tomorrow night with guys from the Tri club, then swim after work Friday. Need to get my swim working better as entered for Ribby hall Tri and Swimathon in a month or two! Blimey!!
Hi Gang .............Only 30 minutes of stretching and some core work tonight, will try and get a bike and run in tomorrow.
Well done everyone on your efforts.
Gav ,,,,,,,,,,need to get my arse in gear and enter the Ribby Hall Tri
Yersinia - wow! well done. Am very impressed.
ST - sorry you weren't able to fit in a session.
Steady - onwards and upwards
Had a bad day. Only got 3 hours sleep las night - no, don't ask... Tried to do a brick session. managed the 5 mile bike with no problem in fact I was 1 min faster than last time. But the run was so extremely painful and at only 1k my legs stopped and refused to move. I actually struggled to walk home!
And this evening I have a full blown head cold . And am feeling sorry for myself. So i seriously doubt I shall do my long bike ride tomorrow.
Think I'll just toddle off and climb into bed. Goodnight everyone.
Aw, poor Chilli. Hope you feel better in the morning.
Circuits was okay - I was a bit worried that it'd be too much on top of the lunchtime mini-tri.
Depending on how knackered I feel tomorrow, it'll either be a rest day, or I'll go skating.
