Well done Joe, Donaldo, and Mrs Donaldo on your Parkruns. Birks - that's a long one for a Saturday. Hope it goes quickly for you. Ditto AOH with your CPD.
Really good ride out today for me. Felt strong on bike (for me) and averaged over 16mph. Lovely weather too and the Wye valley looked lovely. Just need to keep upping the mileage now...consistent consistency!!

Good to see you Gobi...good mileage! Hope everybody has got the nice weather that we have in SE Wales...better than Bilbao by the sounds of it Alehouse? LMH - been on bike yesterday for an hour as part of the plan. Problem was it was on the turbo and in my conservatory...it was hot! Does it count as warm weather training? Nowhere near as much fun as being outside. Looking forward to longer ride tomorrow. Hope your taper is going as well as it can!

Good news from me is that I now weigh less than I ever have done as an adult and have lost 24.1lbs since 5 Jan! Which is just over 11% of my bodyweight.
LMH - Velothon is 140km (87m) and is nine weeks away. My 70.3 is 16 weeks away. The intention is to use Fink's plan as a basis but up the cycling a bit. The good news is that I can currently swim the 1.9k in the time in the pool, and I'm running 10 miles in Z2 HR relatively comfortably. I've built a good base, need to focus in now. Ale - enjoy your trip Joe - enjoy your marathons!!! SC - enjoy Bala
What: 45mins Z2 run Why: Plan Last hard: Windy cycling Last rest: 1 day Lyrics: familiar but no
LMH - nope...although Sunday's ride should have been longer, just got done in by the wind and time constraints. I did a 28.5 mile ride, 27.4 mile and 2 x 22.5 mile rides in the time I was away. The 28 mile is the longest to date and I regret not going further then as the weather was so much easier. However, I knew I wanted to get 4 reasonable rides in while I was away and had no idea how fatigued I'd be. Pleased that 3 of the 4 rides were the day after 6 mile runs too. Hope your taper goes well!
What: rest day today Why: Monday Last hard: Hmm... Last rest: Today Lyrics: No
