For those not yet up to IM
Maths behave yourself and take it easy or I will set Sarah on you. She can find out where you live and bite your ancles. *I'm dead when she reads this *
ST - at least you can run, currently sitting with a bag of frozen peas on my knee (
Won't they thaw out?
DB - it is ok, we can have peas for dinner tonight
decided it would be better not to cycle either today
Sunday feels very odd without being out early for a run or a triathlon - not sure I like this at all
Will still go to the tri club swim though - I can always use a pull buoy to keep the legs out of the action.
It is going to take a lot of swimming to keep my fitness up if I am not running though at least with it being half term I'll be able to get to the pool when it is open for public sessions
Aw Maths sorry to hear about knee. You're base fitness should be there so I'm sure you'll be grand.
Off for my first walk/run in a few weeks shortly. Very foggy here.
MrsD - hope your run goes well. Very foggy here, I quite like running in the fog, it is a bit odd
Must admit I don't do heat so wrapping up warm and pootling out into the fog I love. I'm a bit odd and like running in rain too! Knee feeling any better Maths?
no not really
I much prefer running in cool weather - I struggle in the heat
Aw mate, I'm sure you're doing all the right things... Feel ur pain! You thinking of Wild Boar next year?
definitely! I am trying to persuade OH that it would be a nice weekend away if he and the kids came too - they can bumble around while I do it
and I am doing outlaw half so the distance shouldn't scare me!
My OH told me he's not really interested but will drive me where I wanna go. Luckily there's fishing at Bosworth which helps. My aim was Cotswold prior as local to me. Just need to be able to injury free for a while!
so far I haven't needed him to drive me - but I think for longer distance things I don't want to be driving myself home afterwards - especially if it is a long way - I have had cramping calfs while driving in the past which can be a bit scary! I think he worries that the kids will get bored and act up!! And he isn't interested in the slightest....
I have managed most of the year without injury - and I think this knee problem originated in the summer when hiking in the Alps! Teach me to go on holiday. I thought it had resolved itself , but the 20 miler last week must have set it off again.
I have done a run/walk, the first one in ages. I was good and did a 5 minute walk to warm up then run 1 min, walk 1 min for 3 miles. Hip niggled slightly but have stretched and feel OK.
I have also tried setting up the cadence/speed sensor on the turbo, not sure if I got it dead right, will find out next time I use it. Is anyone on here a geek for Garmins?
I am thinking of following an altered version of Fink for the Outlaw Half, first 10 weeks of just finish schedule, then first 20 weeks of the intermediate with some alterations on the long rides and runs.
Sounds like a good plan. What have you done with the Garmin then?
Good work steady, I too did my first walk/run today. Only 20mins tho. But felt wicked. My Garmin buttons seem to have stopped working, what's happened to yours...
Maths - those pesky 20 milers, they always seem to do it. Learn ya for going on holiday.
