O4S-enjoy the 100,if enjoy is the right word. Good news /bad news- if it's not one thing it's another. At least they didn't tell you to stay at home. Looking forward to hearing all about your big run/trecki
Nell- you havent list any of your speed I see. Now to keep it up for 26 as you say.
Bit of a Chick week for me...not likely to do much until Tuesday so have to squeeze in a lot -not by Chicks standards-yesterday swam 2k and later ran 16 miles 7.43 mm av and today ground out 4miles easy. Total 40 miles run about 6 miles swam and and an hour spinning plus my TRI on Sunday last. Need a rest.
Nell-Cant be bad tapering and carb loading on German beer. Hot choc and peanut butter on toast usually gets me back to sleep
Chick -congrats on the 50 mile challenge success-you have earnt that pain.I enjoyed my free Erdinger after the Berlin marathon and didnt even notice the absence of alcohol.Now wheat beer you can keep...
2.1k swim last night and now off for another swim.
Barry-hope that run is the start of your return to running proper-you're fast sessions have been missed. Looks like you're swimming has gone to another level too.Good idea not to sign up for that HM just yet.
Nell-sorry ,yes I'm feeling pretty good since London .Trained a lot but not run very much -doubt if its over a 100 miles so far but have been doing a lot up and down the pool and a bit on the bike and spinner so I'm hoping that Im not far off marathon /HM shape with 3 and a bit weeks to go.I woke up hungry -so much for a good sleep. No twinges for you is very positive and a good pace too.Are you tapering now?
Bro-Looking good for Comrades. Do you have a target in mind?-I've seen others talking about 8-9 hours but I really have no idea.You dont need to rely on the gods-you have it all sorted!
Chick-my only child of school age is not at home and Mrs 2O was playing golf so what else was there to do?Comrades is not on my bucket list and any way Ive missed my 50th as a target for it
An hours spinning this lunchtime and planning on a swim tonight -thinking its too cold /windy for OW so will probably go to swim club
AA- must be great being a naturally strong swimmer and being able to bang out 70 lengths after 8 months. 3600 will be easy for you after a few more swims and a bit of OW fun. Fast session too...what's the plan...some fast 5 and 10ks before the half? I won't decide on Liverpool until the day before when I collect my number . I need to see how I feel after the 2 mile swim on the Friday. Last year I did the HM in 90xx the day after doing the mile swim. so this time. Get a rest day after swimming twice as far.
Nell-wondered where you were ...we even sent the dogs out to look for you. good sense listening to your body. I think you ll be lining up at the start of Edinburgh .I hate confronting angry dogs on a run...sends my heart through the roof.
3.6k swim yesterday ,2.1k swim this lunch time and 20.5 m run in a strong wind (7.53mm av) tonight. Deep sleep tonight.
Free-A very good pb at that ykw in the circumstances.You must have your eyes on sub 20 now...maybe select a flat and fast 5k race?
O4S-7.30mm is fast for what you did! You are right my spinning has been at 100 rpms plus without fail and generally over 110. As you say I am going to have to turn up the resistance. Can you recommend any plans to introduce this ?I cant see me geeting to any classes.Jogging is not going to happen as far as you are concerned.
Chick-50m in so few days? Crazy but not a surprise...enjoy your sleep on the desk.If I didnt like the comfort of wearing socks my transitions would have been faster still.
