Barry- I would do a couple of short runs over the next few days then on Friday aim for 12 slow . If all ok 16 on Sunday. If ok 18 next week ,20 the week after .But that's me and I'm no expert I'm going to move forward carefully- London is my target now
nell- very disciplined run. Don't think the missed half mile will matter
Oomp- you need both qualities for this pass time.
Pink- drafting is the way to swim fast. I need to go to my club more often . Don't worry about tris They are fun fun fun.
Kfc- think you summed up why I hate being injured.
7.5 miles last night -719mm av -and it was hot. An hour spinning and two hours golf !!! Today. Signed up for a 10k in October and a HM early December . Fingers crossed my body holds together.
KFC-very good fell racing and superior podium and bling too. So impressive especially as it looks as though you had a really enjoyable time
Omph-I am constantly inspired by the toughness (apart from your hip skin)of you guys and sometimes pain is only in the mind. You have pushed yourself pretty hard these last few weeks and maybe a bit of recovery is needed.To do a HM at this stage is a big ask.Im looking for the moment when I feel ready but as I havent ran more than 7.5 miles in the last month I am holding off. You'll get there. ..
Barry- great to see you making progress with the Achilles. I guess Abbo is still a real possibility ? Good swimming too ..bet Pink was mad!
My 5k in the tri-21.35 was about a minute slower than yesterdays which is understandable after all that went before. Bit disappointed with my swim-500m in 10.19 - as so many finished well under 9mins ...have to work on my technique and swim more. Still it was different swimming in an outside 33m brine pool.
Nell- very good 16 even with the weight of undigested steak in you. Whilst I'm no expert 7.35 is a good pace for a LR with a 3.05 marathon in mind. Thanks for the S&C ideas. I will see if I can exercise some discipline to do some of it.
North West Sprint TRI in Nantwich today. Pretty happy with 1.16.28 ,81st and first in age group. I need a rest.
