For those not yet up to IM
Stratford, tempting. But I've got two HIM and one IM over a weekend to work towards for next year, and timing wise its not going to work for me, need to find some sprints really early in the year. Open water swims are aslo going to be on the todo list for as soon as the lakes start to open up.
stratford is tempting, but I will be doing Southwell the week before and should probably spend the rest of time time gearing up for outlaw half
No running but I did spend the evening dancing with one of my gorgeous daughters. Am deffinitely running tomorrow and next week is not quite so busy so am going to have a proper training week.... weather permitting...
Still snotty. Taking my running kit to Brizzle in case I get an hour....
Cat - Cotswold Sprint or Super Sprint 12th May. South Cerney, Cirencester. You off to the 'do'? Gutted really as working all weekend. With it being so close would have been a top night. Hope snottiness gets better!
parkrun this morning with my girlies in freezing temperatures
Okay, it is time to get organised. I am doing a half ironman next year so I need so kind of idea of what to do. Does anyone have a favourite training plan? I'm weakest on the bike.
MC- what are you doing? Except I think you train far more than I do so i'm not sure I could keep up with your plan.
Do folk have a dropback week every 3 or 4 weeks?
How many weeks taper do I need to allow for? For a marathon I usually do 2 week taper.
Should I do a brick session each week? Or every other week?
Chili, pretty much the same at the moment. Because starting from scratch doing a sprint, Olympic then 10 week HIM programme. Only way I can work it in my head. Hopefully will all come together. You already have the base fitness so would likely be different for you.
chili - thought I would do the HIM plan off the beginner triathlete website - although I haven't really looked at it yet, but I think I would need to start in January sometime. For the moment I am just really doing some bike (turbo) swim when I can fit it in, and trying to get back to running.
ST - hope you are feeling better soon, you have been ill for ages! you havve ages till outlaw so don't worry
Get well soon ST, I thought your absence was that you were busy helping Santa's elves with deliveries. No point in starting the training when not well, it just sets you up for an even longer break to recover properly. Eat well and rest enough.
I went out in the cold this morning for another trot around the common. The loop is 1.9 miles and was far enough, did 1 min 30 sec run and 1 min walk.
well done steady
I am not running outside yet, but have been doing some run/walk on the treadmill. Knee has been hurting today though so I'll see how it is tomorrow. Back to the physio on Wednesday.
Have a really busy week this week at work which will stop me training as much as I would like
Having to follow my name and take it steady, but enjoying the steady pace. Hope to get a bit more consistent with the training and do something each day, although this week I have some training in London to go to, so turbo is looking likely.
Still a bit snotty here, bit probably caused by beer Pirate xmas do was a good craic. Haven't run since a good track session lasty Wednesday.
ST - rest up and get well before starting the training.
Chili - a HIM is more like a long Oly - much like a marathon isn't the same as 2 half-maras. You'll ace the run, the bike is all about time in the saddle. A weekly brick really helped, maybe 2 miles after a turbo?
MrsD - I think that may be one of our club champs...I must find out.
Irritated with myself and it's only Monday. No training done for 4 days as work has sucked the life from me. Keep reminding myself the graft starts Jan but frustrated with myself.
Mr Cat, let me know about Cotswold would be nice to put some faces to names.
Christmas tree up.... Get in!
Christmas cards written. Nought else done.
