Haha RF - i see some fink influences there.... I did the 45min bike but then an hour run as need to cram sessions in early to get a rest day on Saturday as want to do XC on Sunday. I have to say I am bloody knackered and struggled to maintain 10min miling today! Starting 90 min swim sessions tomorrow night (home at 11pm) so that will probably finish me off!!!! Back killing too.
Lotte - cant wait to watch the hellyhoowatsit live!
CM - fab about the water fix but make sure you put a fiver a week away now to stop any panic in the future!
JG - sounds like a lot of stress for a few hours!
Kinsey - hmmm why do they like to chew toothbrushes that dont belong to them??
Starting to notice that i am maybe a bit leaner but performance wise i am not sure as i am sooooo tired. Found a lift to a 90min coached swim session on Weds so going to try and get to that. put my 2x hour run sessions together on saturday and ran 12 miles but got some shin pain so taking that as a warning to stay off the tarmac!
I know this is probably everyones A race but are you staying clear of other local races? I want to do our Elan Valley 20m in March but it usually wipes me out for a week! Can i afford that???
Hi minni, when and how far is your tri? can you do all the bits separately or are you needing to build up too? I have entered an IM but no way can i do the distances yet let alone put them together so using shorter tri's to practice transitions, getting used to jelly legs and learning how to fuel.
Buffs are brill especially as when you do warm up you can whip them down or tie to a belt/ strap. My hands always feel toasty just as i get to the end of my session... Tried my neoprene diving gloves today on the bike and they were useless which was a disappointment.
BS - good luck getting foot sorted, gutting when training is going well to have a set back.
Alex - wish i could drop 6lbs.... Have you done that distance before?
Struggling to stay with fink and it is only the base weeks!!
My legs are trashed!!!!! Set off with instruction for hubby to meet me there at 1:30 but he got into a battle over cycling gear so was late and I had a 2 hour run instead..... Followed by 40mins on the bike. Made sure I squeezed in the car to come home!
Clear out is good CM, saw lots of kites as i ran by the feeding station. You ought to come up for the 5/20 milers.
