Not sure yet Vixo, a ha ha. No she doesn't start school for another year so yes I am very silly. I will try my hardest to make it to the start line but who knows if I will achieve it but I can but try. Just worked out I have 20 wks before I start the 30 wk program which will start the week of Christmas. I am going to try and get a couple of lessons from a swim coach in August to improve my stroke and hopefully get me faster and more efficient in the water. The only real way to get swimming sessions in is to go on my way home after a 12.5 hr shift but it will have to be done. I started of by going this morning after my night shift & did 50 lengths. Dying to get back running, seeing a physio later. Knee only little sore now but will get it checked & see when I can start running again. I will then build up to half marathon distance up until Christmas.The bike I will just keep it ticking over for the next 20 wks with a bit of MB training for the puffer in Jan. Will try and get a couple of 50 mile road rides in before winter and the it will be turbo in the winter.
I hope so Turbo. The girls i work with have said i am nuts to contemplate an IM. Been thinking how hard i found the 3 marathons i did and how slow i was!!! Oh dear. Been reading a bit tonight about training, saw a doable ' get u round' 30 week program.
Ok so i have only read this page, cant keep up, must try harder!!!
Oh Phil n Alley are great Litre, great experience for S. Your kids are amazing ????
Am at work,boo. Already tired and its only 11.40 pm, yikes!!!
Caro- glad that you n the family have managed to get away, great that you are staying at CM's house!!! Scary about starting chemi but at least you know now what's happening. Enjoy the rest of your holiday x
Gosh typing on my phone is really annoying so cant write much, maybe type more later in night if quiet to keep me awake!!!!
Yes so i have obviously lost the plot, imagine entering an ironman, flippin nutter. At the moment i know i could never do it but in hoping if i follow a 30 week program i will make it round by the. 17 hour cut of time!! Sugar i get nervous just writing that
, arghhhhhhhhhh. My aim from now to until October is to swim more, improve my stroke and hopefully get back running. Am seeing a physio tomorrow. Still plan to do the puffer in January & then maybe do a marathon as a training run. Yikes. Not sure how i will fit in the training yet.............
