O4S-looking forward to hearing all about the 100. Hope BA is ok. Up there with the best as usual.Dorset next year? Hmm?
Barry- another very good swim by you . Are you in a group or solo?OW is fun once you're in the water .Any further thoughts about the tri? Which one is it ?
Free- that was a very respectable YKW in the circumstances and a well deserved first place . I need to do one soon as I found they are a great way of speed training as part of a distance schedule .i just can't get a free Saturday morning!Do them regularly and you'll notice the difference .Hope the calf is ok -wise to back off a bit . That 15 was pretty good too
Nell- good sharpening runs for Sunday. I suppose you're pretty much done for it now. Are you going to pace each other?
back to it today - very slow 3.5k swim lunchtime and 11.5 m about 7.53mm av run tonight. Very cool and windy for mid May.....not bad for running though the local cyclists were toiling in the wind .
Barry- great to see the progress continue. I managed a sprint TRI as I recovered from AT a year ago and calf probs last year- go for it just don't push the run too hard. I've got the Windermere Great North Swim 2miles booked for 12th June and Liverpool HM or marathon on 14th June
Chick -that was a nice break. You have a full 7 days to go 50 plus this week- easy .Generally niggle free except big toe bruised after wearing my new running shoes and finding out the hard way I need a half size bigger. Pain is good.
O4S- hope the 100 was a breeze and the cake was plentiful
Nell- looks like you're ready for Edinburgh. That was an easy schedule this time
4 days enforced no training for me- Friday flat hunting in London with Miss2O (shocking),Saturday school speech day in the midlands ,yesterday Monaco grand prix, today on the Mersey watching the 3Queens cruise ships sail in and out to celebrate 175 years ofCunard. Normal service resumes tomorrow.
By coincidence youngest Miss20 's best friend's dad is doing the Lisbon marathon too (he's a serial marathoner approx 90 around 4hours)so it looks like I'm now part of a group doing it ...and she will do the5k fun run the day before. Looking forward to it.
O4S-enjoy the 100,if enjoy is the right word. Good news /bad news- if it's not one thing it's another. At least they didn't tell you to stay at home. Looking forward to hearing all about your big run/trecki
Nell- you havent list any of your speed I see. Now to keep it up for 26 as you say.
Bit of a Chick week for me...not likely to do much until Tuesday so have to squeeze in a lot -not by Chicks standards-yesterday swam 2k and later ran 16 miles 7.43 mm av and today ground out 4miles easy. Total 40 miles run about 6 miles swam and and an hour spinning plus my TRI on Sunday last. Need a rest.
Nell-Cant be bad tapering and carb loading on German beer. Hot choc and peanut butter on toast usually gets me back to sleep
Chick -congrats on the 50 mile challenge success-you have earnt that pain.I enjoyed my free Erdinger after the Berlin marathon and didnt even notice the absence of alcohol.Now wheat beer you can keep...
2.1k swim last night and now off for another swim.
