AA-I wondered about your taper and thought that it was time for some madness from you.Only 12 days? Keep on rolling
Strange week last week,hit 50 miles by Thursday then nothing for the rest due to a family party/reunion over the weekend in Ross on Wye. Nice trip to Symonds Yat and walking on the hills which got my legs twitching for a run or two but it was not to be.
Likely to be similar disjointed one this week-yesterday: 18k on the TM at mp and 10k in the dark later.Much cooler-Autumn has arrived. Do 2 runs in a day count together as a LR?
AA-don't blame you cycling instead of a LR. They are a pain. Your run today went well
Barry-what's up with you and injuries? That's normally my problem. I bet the calf issue will be related to your hip somehow. My calf tends to trouble me after long drives or flights and I find squats and lunges provide some relief. Hope it fixes soon . Yep I'm slacking - actually I'm cramming a bit in whilst I can which is risky
6 miles today including a few fastish intervals in the park. Too hot really . Thought about a swim tonight but CNBA'd .
AA-cant say for sure how accurate the Garmin is in the pool but as a rule, apart from when in my swim club, I always swim slower in the pool than OW probably due to not having the wet suit to compensate for my poor technique.More often or not it counts the laps ok though unless mixing in breast stroke and /or back stroke or using a float.I always lose count but I do that running and cycling laps anyway . Are you going to try and get another LR in -say 17/18 miles-too?Why not do Bournemouth as a training run and then do Leicester for your gfa. Best not to let the gfa target stress you out though. Still not 100% on doing Leicester as I have other demands on my time from this weekend on. It would be a shame not to put my recent training to good use though.
Turns out my ykw time was 20.05 and I was 1st in my age group. Pity I didnt push a bit harder on the sand. 9 miles Sunday, 10 on the TM Monday and 14 yesterday in the rain and lightning.A shorter run planned for today
AA-the IM should be no problem as you have all disciplines in the bag and you just need to put them together. Hope all is going well for Bournmouth
Barry- I looked at Lakesman and it doesn't look very hilly for that part of the world. You'll breeze it . Any runs planned?
Only 46 miles last week ( had 2 days rest)including a 20 mile LR and a 20xx min YKW at a different venue which was 1m on grass,1m on a path and 1m on soft sand on a beach.Came 5th though it was a bit short of 5k . Did an open water swim too in the marine lake. First there for a few years and very pleasant -pity I miss set my Garmin to pool swim.
