I'm on a double rest day, I cant take a deep breath without wimpering, I'm not used to sit ups

How are we all?

Managing a good amount of training at the moment and trying to hold some consistency,

Day off yesterday after a 3 hour turbo on Sunday, had a good swim this morning too. Looking forward to pay day, may have to be followed by a race entry or two!

ButterCup - very hard core indeed!

Hi Beanpole

Take care JP, so easy to lose form with sit-ups and do yourself a damage.

Re. Emma C's training program question:

As identifying training zones may become something of interest to Emma (if not already sorted), I'd be interested to know how Don Fink's new Half Distance Ironman book says to do this.

Big case of CBA. Having another day off.

hi everyone

did a turbo today and was pleased to find the my legs and knees were fine after the double run yesterday 

planning on running again in the morning but the weather forecast is horrible

Well I've just got home from a rubbish day at work, it's snowing, and I'm trying to convince myself to get out for a run. It will happen.

I'll be biking tomorrow and turboing in the evening MC - the weather is going to be pants

Dragged myself out for a steady 3 miles over 32:44.19. Ran 1.5 miles then turned round. Paths that had been wet from the snow on the way out suddenly became suitable for Olympic speed skating on the way back!

Well done to all that ventured out in the vile weather. I managed a wee turbo & run. Luckily dry for the run.

Will check HR zones when back downstairs!

Finks heart rate zones are the same for the half as the full, there's a website that can work it out for you here;

Thanks Dan, my bad I phrased it horribly -  it's his method of calculating your personal max heartrate I'm interested in.  Previously he was saying to use the old 220 - age thing which isn't very accurate (for me it's 11bpm out of my present working figure).

Well done on getting out there DB.
MC - good to read your knee/legs handled the double run well.

DS I'm 40 so that would give me a max of 180 but I've seen over 200

Was talking to buttercup .... I have a stupid HR, I've done marathons with an average of 180+

PS feel like crap but have kit for treadmill tonight

12/02/2014 at 09:20

ah fair enough DS, the half fink advised the same as the full (220- age) generally i use the standard route of running as fast and hard as i can for a mile, and timing it from there, it generally has worked out pretty similar though

12/02/2014 at 10:04

That's pretty much what I did Dan. Pegged it up a hill for as long as poss. My resting is 65 at the mo and top of 188! EP is a bit of a phenomenon with her HR.... get on that treddie girl

Good Afternoon all First full week back on training and survived so all good.

Saturdays long ride because a long turbo after 2 punctures on the winter bike. I ran out of tubs and had to go back on the my "race" bike on the turbo instead. Debating forking out for gatorskin tubs but the Wiggle reviews vary a lot on them so not sure.

I now swim three days in a row, its tough and I start to feel like a fish but I think things are showing improvement already.

On the max heart rate thing I've recently been told that for women it's 222 - your age, which is nice so I'm 40 and mine is 182.
