What's all this park running are you all local to each other?
02/02/2011 at 16:37

No, they are all over the country:

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!

Just back from doing a 45 min run with a few walks, went off a bit too fast and had to really slow down, but did 3.1 miles and managed to run non stop for the second half of the loop. Yippee, I feel I am really making progress now, my plan had stated a 40min run but as I had 5 mins of walking in my loop it works out spot on. Roll on the swimming now.

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.

Oh Chili - poor you! Have a bath or two to rest those achey muscles and dose yourself up and rest. Maybe you haven't got over last weekends illness? Take as much time as you need, as you could just make it worse. I know it's hard, but I had a WHOLE WEEK off (apart from Zumba, which doesn't count). And actually it wasn't the worst thing in the world.

When is Ribby Hall and what distance are people doing?

Flippin' heck Yersinia - a mini tri AND circuits - I didn't make the link that it was all in one day! I did do 20 minutes of intervals on the bike before circuits, but it's no mini-tri!

I'm just off out for a run in the sun. I've been looking forward to it all week and work is threatening to put me off going (so much to do!) but I'm determined to get out there before I have three days of rain.

See yous all later

chili... take a bit of rest time   

going for a swim this eevning.. then doing my long run tomorrow evening hopefully.. light permitting.. due to do around 14 which is hard when i liev in the country so lots of unlit lanes.. will try and get out of work on time and get a bit of running done before light goes and then do loops around teh actual town! 

then going to go to a swim videoing session my tri club are running on sat morning ! really interested to see my weak points!

14 miles or k Bootsie?
03/02/2011 at 15:08
miles..last long run before the half marathon on the 20th.. once that is over i have one  more race the following weekend and then 6 months focused on the tri stuff .. can't wait to not have to balance long runs and tri training
03/02/2011 at 17:46
I bet well done, longest I've done was 15 miles training for half and to be honest it was easier than the half lol don't ask me why

I'm doing one more half in March hoping to get under 2 hrs then move onto Tri

Enjoy your well earned rest, Chilli! Don't go back to it too early, no matter how tempted you are.

Hey, JEvaNs: Ribby is 400m pool swim, 18km bike, 5km run. Details are up now on ukresults if you want to enter. I'll be there! My Fylde Tri Club Pink and Blue top clashes beautifully with my ginger bonce, so it's not hard to spot me!

Running tonight on Blackpool prom - 10k in a fierce cross wind straight off the sea, by the sound of what's happening outside my front window now. Oh well, Fylde coast events are always windy so I suppose its good practise. At least I can have a pizza without feeling guilty afterwards! Hurrah!

Thanks guys and yes I've been very good and not attempted any training. Have been dosing myself with vitamin C and paracetamol and got through a whole box of tissues. I think I might be an endorphine junkie though, cos I'm not coping very well with the lack of training this week.

Yersinia  - that is very impressive

Bootsie - all the best with your 14 miles.

Hi Gang..........................Bootsie.... be careful out there in the dark it's bad enough in the daylight.

ST ....have managed to get out for a run yet?

Gav....... I bet you will look a picture in your clubs colours

Had a good day today, did my own little Tri, biked to and from the gym, 12 miles, 1k swim and a 2mile run off the bike..

The legs felt really heavy after the bike but my tims were about the same.

What you all been up to?

03/02/2011 at 20:58

silvewr trucker.. same aim here.. would love a sub 2hr!

razor.. thanks! 

03/02/2011 at 23:14
Bootsie - at one point I thought we were quite similar, but with that kind of running mileage, we are not. I just about did my 6 miles today. I really should be up to double figures by now

I say "just about"... I didn't. I cut it short by about 500m because I really needed the loo!

Am really aching from yesterdays circuits. I was using the 7kg on chest flies though, so I know why! There was also a LOT of ab work (we made a point to the trainer lady that there isn't very much ab work and we want more!) and today it hurts to sit up. I probably won't be able to get out of bed tomorrow as a result, but if I can, then the plan is for a pyramid swim session tomorrow evening.

All fairly tame this week after my week off last week. I'm still a bit phlem-ful, but not bunged up and sniffly. I feel so much better having been doing some excercise (after a week of rest - remember that Chili - keep resting!!!!) - I had got to a point where I didn't think I would remeber what normal felt like!

JEvaNs, its only because i'm doing the brighton half marathon in 2 weeks!
