Barry- great TRI splits and post TRI trainng. What's next ? I'm doing a little and often
O4S-tough stuff for your mum (()). Exercising as crazily as ever. I love the Wye Valley. Many trips fishing there when a lad.
Bro- thatultra is insane so perfectly suited to you. Personally give me an incline like that on skis any day. Nice 5k and short- for you- runs
free - looks like we are in the same boat and same damaged muscle. I'm still hoping to get Lisbon done as I want to do it for a charity and there's a big group going. No plans to go fast though .Ive given up on my schedule.
AA- you are in a good place trainng wise..great swim and LR. Don't peak too soon though - Amsterdam is on my list.
Chick-great mileage and good to see a bit of speed returning
Minni- get back here!!! Now!!!!
Currently cooking here. Managed a bit of exercise most days - short swims and runs. All runs on the beach which is a bit dangerous -so far I have knocked over 2 kids - and it's not that I'm running fast either which is not possible in 32c plus conditions . Going to leave LRs until I get home. Calf mending slowly but sciatica still a problem.
Chick/O4S-thanks for the good wishes. Just got to get on with it. You are great examples of that
O4S- I just read your work rate in wonder.What a machine. Pleased you are pushing through your issues too.
Chick- you should get that sub 3.30. I'm a believer that big mileage can produce good times even if most are easy. My marathons this year didn't have any interval sessions just the odd 10k and a few park runs.
Barry- brilliant....outstanding in all departments. Everything went right for you -made up for you. How were you placed overall and in each discipline for your age. You will be up there.
Went for a swim n the sea yesterday but too rough so gave a run a go and managed 5 miles bare foot on the beach.....last one 7.10 mm .Still stiff and sore in the calf .....possibly scar tissue to work through ....so , fwiw ,still have run at least once every week this year except the first when I was skiing.
AA- looks like my injury is going to get worse before it gets better. I rang about my GFA and was told they had all my info but there was a backlog. Expect your aches are gone now
Barry- bit envious of your TRI tomorrow just enjoy the experience. Lots of good mixed trainng by you. Try and draft in your swim it makes an incredible difference in time and effort Good luck tomorrow anyway
physio checked her records and noted it was exactly a year since I last saw her. Wonder if I'll ever do over a year without injury?
Decided to take it easy this week so apart from a swim today and Mon day that's it. Need to start trainng soon if I'm hoping to run in Lisbon
AA- thanks for the suggestions. Physio confirmed it's sciatica. Getting it to release is the next task. Not got my GFA yet and I think the 14 days are up tomorrow or Weds. Those circuits sound fun...not .
Swim tonight including 10x50m sprints . Garmin went mad and says I swam 4500 metres.... I wish .
