For those not yet up to IM
Haven't done mine yet Steady. In fact last year I left it too late and so just e-mailed everyone!
ST - sorry you are still feeling so rough.
Razor sounds like you are doing great.
I did the first day of my building base plan 5 miles of hills on bike this morning and ran the same 5 miles this evening. Running up the hills is sooooo much easier than cycling! I have a very long way to go but hopefully will be fit and ready by the end of May.
Well done on the first day of training Chilli, I am still sorting out my plan, which looks like it will be 20 weeks starting in the new year.
Did my little run/walk again tonight, its beginning to feel easier, then a hour of pilates, which was hard work as the church hall had the heating on full blast. I have heard of hot yoga but not hot pilates.Razor sometimes runs like that just happen, hopefully next time you do that route it will be easy, or maybe you have a bug lurking and about to be ill.
Swimming yesterday and then bike this morning in the snow with the lovely cycling group. That's training 3 days in a row and you have no idea how proud of myself I am!
Nice one chuckles!!!
well done chili
physio said I can run so going to find the cold gear and go for a quick 15/20 minutes to clear the cobwebs. It was about 12 degrees warmer last time I ran outside...
It most certainly is! Mind the ice patches. I do have some nice running gear for cold weather but am going to invest in decent waterproofs and better gloves if I'm going to be out on the bike.
And at somepoint I'm going to have to get those proper cycling shoes with clippy bits. Oh dear, I am such a novice at cycling that I don't even know the name!
Nice on Chili. Just in time for the cold and ice to make it really hard to train .
Great news from the Phys MC!
Our track was iced up tonight so we stuck with the 100m we could see was ok.
chili - they are called cleats! I got some when I got my road bike, and have only fallen a couple of times. Best thing to do when you get them is go on some quiet roads to practice. I need some proper cold weather cycling stuff - I am just doing the turbo at the moment. I do have a pirate cycling jacket on order, so maybe when I get that I will be inspired to go out...
I have been lazy, not done any proper training, blaming the cold and cba. Had 2 days of learning new stuff at work and my brain is frazzled, coupled with yesterdays train problems resulting in a 2 and a half hour journey.Mathschick I have a cycle jacket on order, hope it has the right effect on me when I get it.
Oooh, you ladies are going to look so pretty in your new jackets.
I finished my Christmas shopping today. Part of it involved sweatshop and my hubby buying my very expensive and lovely present
Darling, you're worth more. xxxx
aw, sounds very nice Mr and Mrs Chilibean.I resolve to try harder next week and do at least 2 swim, 2 bike and 2 run, even if its only for 30 mins each.
Pt done, well and truly beasted. Now settled downright the Dark Knight and mulled wine - sweet!
had a really busy week and not done much training but oh well, decided to call it a recovery week. I think next week might be just as bad because there are school plays and concerts etc to go to
glad I signed up for winterswim - haven't been to the pool for a while and got an email reminding me I need to put in a 100m time before tomorrow. That means I HAVE to get to the pol this weekend! even if I only do 4 lengths I will do more though. Shame that the pool where my tri club trains is shut for maintenance now till January, so no coached sessions for a while. I find it hard to make myself do drills when I am on my own, maybe I feel a bit odd.
I am hoping it means before the END of tomorrow, as the pool isn't open today. How can it not open for a lane swim on a Saturday for goodness sake??
Have a good swim MC. Hope you enjoyed your evening Mrs D. All the best with your training plan next week Steady. Which races are you planning to do next year?
early morning turbo session for me - did one of the sufferfest videos.
question about the turbo - on some of the sufferfest videos it tells you to stand up, when I tried that, my bike moved forwards, front wheel nearly came off the yellow pages and I nearly cra*pped myself. Am I doing something wrong? should I try it again or am I likely to hurt myself??
first swim for two weeks, felt like I was going in slow motion.
