Barry- great TRI splits and post TRI trainng. What's next ? I'm doing a little and often
O4S-tough stuff for your mum (()). Exercising as crazily as ever. I love the Wye Valley. Many trips fishing there when a lad.
Bro- thatultra is insane so perfectly suited to you. Personally give me an incline like that on skis any day. Nice 5k and short- for you- runs
free - looks like we are in the same boat and same damaged muscle. I'm still hoping to get Lisbon done as I want to do it for a charity and there's a big group going. No plans to go fast though .Ive given up on my schedule.
AA- you are in a good place trainng wise..great swim and LR. Don't peak too soon though - Amsterdam is on my list.
Chick-great mileage and good to see a bit of speed returning
Minni- get back here!!! Now!!!!
Currently cooking here. Managed a bit of exercise most days - short swims and runs. All runs on the beach which is a bit dangerous -so far I have knocked over 2 kids - and it's not that I'm running fast either which is not possible in 32c plus conditions . Going to leave LRs until I get home. Calf mending slowly but sciatica still a problem.
Chick/O4S-thanks for the good wishes. Just got to get on with it. You are great examples of that
O4S- I just read your work rate in wonder.What a machine. Pleased you are pushing through your issues too.
Chick- you should get that sub 3.30. I'm a believer that big mileage can produce good times even if most are easy. My marathons this year didn't have any interval sessions just the odd 10k and a few park runs.
Barry- brilliant....outstanding in all departments. Everything went right for you -made up for you. How were you placed overall and in each discipline for your age. You will be up there.
Went for a swim n the sea yesterday but too rough so gave a run a go and managed 5 miles bare foot on the beach.....last one 7.10 mm .Still stiff and sore in the calf .....possibly scar tissue to work through ....so , fwiw ,still have run at least once every week this year except the first when I was skiing.
