For those not yet up to IM
Track session tonight! Very confusing...400m reps - 1st 100m @ 10k pace, 2nd @ 5k pace, 3rd sprint, 4th jog. After 4 reps (1 mile) take a minute rest. Do 4 lots in total (4 mi).
Ow, that sounds like horrible hard work IronCat.
I have done a little 30 minute turbo. I have rewritten my training plan so I build back up steadily rather than just trying to start where I should be. Calves and feet felt crampy when I got off, but soon settled down.
Off to stretch before heading to bed. Tired. zzzzzz
Shaz was seen a few months back cycling in my area, spotted by another pirate.ST popped in on the pirate kit thread once but don't know how he is.
Er, yeah, will confess to tainspotter outfit. It was ferkin' cold though!
steady - I am going to have to rethink my plan as well! managed a 30 min very gentle turbo this morning, but knee not really happy about it. At least I feel like I have done something even if it wasn't hard enough to call training, it will stop me from being a moody sod!
razor - sounds like are back into the swing of things nicely
cat - sounds hard
Awww, MC - you are having a rough time of it. Sending hugs to you.
9 miles of bike today and pilates class. Hope my legs recover a bit before my hoping-to-do 10 mile run tomorrow. My family are finding it amusing that I keep nodding off each evening at the dinner table.
I miss ST and I met Shaz at the outlaw last summer and she seemed so very nice. Hope she recovered from all her injuries.
I think the hardest part was remembering what I'd done...
MC can you still swim? Give the knee another rest. I'm still failing to get to 10 miles in my runs Chili.
I saw Shaz at the Dorney relays in Sep and she was covered in k-tape but otherwise in good spirits.
Just shy of 10km tonight. Usual Thursday night club route.
cat - should be able to swim, and I can always use a pull buoy if I need to. Would have gone tonight but just too tired. Hopefully I will get chance tomorrow to go the gym, do some weights and have a swim
I am going to try having a go at this running lark tomorrow. I think I will just go for a run/walk as I feel rather than being told by the Garmin on when to run.
ok, so I know it isn't late for most of you, but I am not an evening person (unless the evening involves sleeping), had a really long day at school, knee still hurts, walking up and down stairs is not good, so just came home
now, tomorrow I have a 'trial' for the masters sessions at a fairly local swimming club - does that mean they see whether I am good enough? worried I am too rubbish
Don't fret Mathschick, I go to the local masters sessions. I spoke to the coach beforehand and he introduced me to the other swimmers in the slow lane and I just did what I could. Over time I have improved, but not moved out of the slowest lane. I am hoping to go tomorrow, which will be the first time in ages, so I expect to skip some bits, just remember the etiquette of standing close to the wall and not getting in the way if resting, oh and if you find your slower at a different stroke do not hesitate to drop back to the last one to start off. We once had a record of 6 swimmers per lane, six lanes to the pool.
I have run/walked. 2 miles in 30 minutes, one up a gentle hill and the other back down.
well done steady
just realised only 16 weeks till outlaw half - gulp
Don't panic, train. My mentor last year told me just be consistent with your training, even if its not exactly what the plan says. Us tortoises will get there.
trouble is, damn knee keeps stopping me from training. Got an appointment with a knee specialist on Thursday though. Hopefully if I can join the masters swimming sessions that will mean getting in a few good quality swimming sessions a week if nothing else
Well done Steady!
MC - Have a great time tomorrow. Am rather envious of you training and learning with others.
However I did have a training partner this evenings. One of my 9yr old twins! She was lovely. We had a great time and survived the cold, rain, hail, thunder, lightening and the dark. I ran 10 miles and the cycled beside me chatting the whole way.
So in the past 7 days I have:swum 94 lengths (1 3/4 miles)cycled 43 milesrun 15 miles1 pilates class
Am tired but still alive and so pretty pleased with that. Just 16 weeks until the race is it MC? Hope I can get my bike mileage up.
