AA - Very well done on the mixed training month, HIM is 23 Aug at Cotswold water park.
2old- That is the plan, IM before I'm 50 which is Aug 2016, will get the HIM out of the way and find an autumn mara, hopefully my 3 quality runs a week plus swimming/cycling will get me back where I was in the spring. Well done for braving the waves, I still struggle when the lake is choppy.
48 miles on the bike yesterday, lovely morning for it. 27 miles on the bike this morning followed by 7.5 mile run.
2old- This year is all about getting experience and giving it a go but 6 hours ish does sound a long time racing/completing, There's one hill on the bike course which you do twice. mmm not sure about a breeze, think pacing/nutrition will be my issue. Well done on the 9.
Chick - Nice pacey reps.
Brol - enjoy the hill reps.
2k in the lake yesterday and a good run this afternoon in the sunshiiine, might have lost some top end speed but steady pace seems OK, just over 11 miles at 7:19 avg.
Freemers - Speedy recovery from the injury, were n't you planning Abo last year as well?
Brol - Nice 5K, yeah I remember Maidenhead HM getting some strange looks saying hello to everyone I thought was you at the finish.
O4S - Amazing training and planned races from you. Some things never change.
AA - Very impressive swimming and well done on the 20, think I was a maybe for Maidenhead best get my entry in. The way my current speed is think I'll be trailling you and Brol home.
2old - Good you are training, hopefully we will both make VLM next year. Half Iron distance tri is next for me 23 Aug which will soon be here. Minni is on FB and is doing well swimming, cycling and getting back on it running.
Chick - Well done on the 11 and returning speed.
Brick session went well Sunday. 5 mile run yesterday with middle 3 meant to be quick but were a real struggle where's all my speed gone. Off to the lake tonight
2old - I'll be there everything crossed, I was 85 male out of 151 and 27 out of 54 for old blokes, goes without saying my position got better from swim to bike to run. Happy enough with first race a that distance. See you're getting some warm weather training in.
AA - Well done on the 20, I know you're doing Maidenhead HM, you've either not said or i've forgotten what autumn mara are you doing. Yeah loved Eton dorney great venue.
Brol - Saw a tv show on the Transvulcania, island near the Canaries? Looks amazing but very tough.
Good training week for me, Tues 5 mile run,, Wed 2.5k pool swim,Thurs 10 miles run, Friday 1 hour indoor bike, this morning 2k ow swim and 20 mile bike, 30 mile bike followed by run planned for tomorrow.
O4S - That is a lot of cycling with a hell of lot of climbing,good news you can carry on with the madness.
chick - keep on with your mega miles and you will OK, when/which is your marathon?
Good day at the tri yesterday, first Olympic distance and nervous over the swim, Eton Dorney great venue:
Swim - Started near the back, had a bit of a scare when my garmin slipped forward off the wetsuit and thought I was going to lose it, and pretty soon was at the back but steadily overtook including one who was slowly pushing me towards the bank,out of water in 35:45(1500M) - very happy.
Bike(40K) - Loved it 8 x 5k loops done in 1 hour 15. Overtook quite a few but saying that I was overtaken by the TT bike aero crew.
Run(10K) - Hard to get going when and pleasantly surprised when first mile came in at 6:59, the rest of the miles were 7:23 to 6:51(last one) so getting some pace back in the legs. 44:07 total.
