For those not yet up to IM
well done for the bike ride Razor, I am treating my long walk as my long run that should be tomorrow and will do 1 hour on the turbo tomorrow instead.
That sounds a good ride Razor.
MC - you do so much each day, how do you have the energy? well done on your parkrun
Steady - nice walk
Was race director at my parkrun this morning so did 1hr 30 mins run this afternoon. Laps around the small lake whilst my family played. Am finding it very tiring to combine all this cycling and running. Really hope I am truely getting fitter... just feels like I'm getting tireder! lol!
I turboed this morning and now I have a pain in the bum/hip area. I have stretched it, so might have to try the roller on it, to ease the hurt.
I had been doing so well this week.
steady - hope you are ok and it goes with a bit of rest.
I have been tired today and done nothing, but going to the club swim session tonight. Been feeling a bit achy too after the run and bike yesterday.
chili - I have been off work for two weeks, which has meant more time to exercise and less to do with the rest of my time! (apart from looking after kids and the domestic things). There will be less training this next week as I'll be back at work and knackered all week!
Hi All, looks like a good weekend all round.
I had a good turbo thursday, then a fast run Friday before swimming. Knee was twinging through the run, but pushed on. Then swam in the evening. All evening it hurt to go up/down stairs, so the 2 hr bike ride may not have been a good choice...
All ok today though, but I won't ride or run until Tuesday. A swim tomorrow for me, assuming my arms have recovered!
Cat - be careful with that knee! Mine still isn't right and it has been a few months now...
MC - well done on your parkrun!
Steady - good to hear you're doing as the physio tells you and sounds the recovery is going well.
Razor - Nice bike ride!
Cat - be careful with that knee, no more injuries please!
We went up Pen-Y-Fan and Cribyn from Cwmgwdi car park and then traversed back from other side of Cribyn. About 11miles but my quads were pretty tight on Sunday. Still feeling them a bit but will go for a gentle lunch time run again, I think!
Well, I went for a run, but it wasn't gentle! I usually run with two guys, one faster, one slower, and the slower one I can easily keep up with if not push him a bit. But the slower one is on holiday this week so went with the faster one agreeing about an easy run. So off we went and almost straight away the pace was bit quick, before end of mile 1 when I check my watch we were doing 8:30 pace!!! I haven't run that fast since my PB in park run in 2010! Next mile averaged just under 10m/m and I was obviously already losing the pace going off so fast. Damn men! My new garmin (only forerunner 110) said I did 2.82mi in 27:07 which is a minute quicker than last week with the other guy. Which doesn't sound so bad until you realise it's more than 20sec quicker pace per mile! On Wednesday, I'm going on my own.
It'll do you good Mikasa!
Yeah, in a way it was good, it definitely pushed me. I didn't know I could still run that fast, even if it was just for a bit...
Well, my year of shorter tri training started well with a 5 mile run Thursday (albeit I was struggling a bit at 10.30MM which is unusual). Friday was a 45 min spin bike session at the gym followed by a half hour of core work.
Then, Saturday eve, the wheels fell off in style. Went into AF around teatime. Usually intermittent or it clears by itself after a few mins, by 10pm, it hadn't, I was in trouble and at midnight went into A&E at wifes insistence. Apparently that was the right call as (my wife tells me), I got upgraded from assessment to minor, to major, to next to the crash cart and resus. They left it going a while as my fitness meant it was used to going at that speed for long periods but in the end decided enough was enough, stuck some beta blockers in the line, then stuck some more in, then stuck some anti arrhythmias in and finally it stabilised about 3.30am.
Now on beta blockers pending rapid access cardio referral, no exercise for a week and told to do as I am told this time.
On the plus side, it showed to the wife that I just got unlucky when I flamed out at Outlaw. Wrong place at the wrong time. And at least they were able to see it this time when it didn't right itself.
So, what now? Lord H has already asked if he can have my new brilliant XC trainers. Bastard. And I am going to miss the Farnham tri swim gala on Friday.
Fingers crossed for OK to do the G3 XC on the 19th (is there a hope icon)
Finally, is there a "Fecked Off" icon?
DB - that sounds nasty, good job you went to A&E. Make sure you do as you are told. Missing a few events now really isn't important if it means you are around longer term! There will be plenty more...
mikasa - well done
rest day for me and first day back at school and I am shattered
((Dustboy)) I am glad you listened to the wife, but also glad that she could see that Outlaw was a wrong place wrong time event. Please do as you are told and rest, apparently resting is an important part of training.
I have seen an icon which typed colon poop colon with no gaps is supposed to turn into a pile of sh1t, but of course it doesnot work on here.
((((Dusty)))) but like you said silver lining is your better have can now see that it can happen any time.
