It depends what you are doing but generally yes, if you are doing reps on say a few hills around the area then you would do a few on each (depending on what session you/friends/club have devised) running up and jog ging back down. Do a couple at first at low intensity to ensure you are warmed up. (Perhaps an easy jog for 10-15mins prior to the session). Once you have done your allocated reps on a certain hill, just jog to the next hill. Nothing complex.
Ah ok Steady... no worries... I'll find something. It was mainly just to have a half in a bit before the full... There are still some options for the full, so I will see for the Half. If anyone has any suggestions I'd be grateful. Based in Scotland but happy to travel down south if necessary.
I have to say we chose Highland Warrior as a 1st half because the bike is fairly flat. That way if I survive the swim I should cope with the bike not too badly... Frankly the run will be survival mode .
Hi guys!! Just checking in for a catch up although have been lurking!!
Hope you are all well, sounds like training is going good! Hope you get that 3rd leg covered for Outlaw.
I have 2 weeks until my 1st HIM (non branded event in Fort William).... trying to stay positive as that will help me get through. The swim is my weakest so if I get out alive I should be ok!!!
A few more hard sessions this week as I am off work and then I will be less intense next week (much less) although will be up in FW for the week before and will be going up Ben Nevis via the Carn Mor Dearg arete rather than the tourist path.... No other major plans other than bits and bobs of swim/bike/run before the race.
Then after the race we are off to Skye to hike the Skye Trail for 1 week and wild camp for 6/7 nights. I am tired thinking of it all but sooooo excited too!!!
Today managed a run with some random hill reps thrown in... a swim of 1500m (pool) and a wee yoga class. Not too shabby. A good day planned tomorrow of a swim bike and run. Easy swim after a tough set today, tempo run and 2hr bike.
Have decided might go for Outlaw Half next year before full IM late in the season..... Never thought I'd say it
Hey OH!! I've been trying to swim regularly both in pool and OW where/when possible. You'll get there. I still struggle at times in OW but it is coming... kind of!!
Half IM in 2 weeks... having done an Olympic this year and felt comfortable at the end of 1500m (although still glad it was done!!)... so surely I can survive another 400m? eeshk!!! Quite happy to be last out the water If I can do that I think I'll manage to get round as my biking and running is "ok"... hmmm why am I doing this again????
