Pink- well done fitting in that run and chilly dipping
Ant- good to see you are doing well. That's a tough way to start a marathon schedule ,imagine that ahead of you for 18weeks
Barry- seems like we had the same idea doing 10 today. Pretty similar conditions for me too. . Very true the spectre of injury haunts us. Hopefully Xmas will stop me /us overdoing it . My kick boarding is stronger than most in my club too ...pity about my week arms. 22seconds seems very fast to me.
So 10.6 today av 7.35 mm but excluding warm up and cool down 7 at MP
Barry/Free-I tended to run unfuelled and without water until I blacked out so have reverted to a regular sugar and water hit.Barry watch your nutrition now you've added swims to the list
Free-not suprised you felt it in the legs after all that.Not sure if a dog assisted 5K merits disqualification-maybe? The mention of the marathon schedule terrified me
Barry-great swimming-its coming together.Strangely mine is falling apart due to not doing it regularly.I was swallowing water all night in swim club.Good fast splits there
9 miles at lunchtime av pace 7.35ish including warm up so most around MP.Then last night 2.1k in Swim Club .All I can say is that the intensity hurt. 18k on the TM today mix of recovery and steady pace.
One of the swimmers was disappointed as his open water swim on Saturday was cancelled due to ice on the surface-wimp!
Kiwi-I'm fine thanks ,if you can call recovering from my daughters 16th wild birthday party fine. I'm in a state of shock. I've always wanted to do a Santa run but they always look too cold....the off reader sounds challenging
chick- and both of us are falling apart despite our heart rates. You did 50 miles last week so this week is ok
pink - I love the TM ...think it suits my OCD. It's exciting when you suddenly realise a challenging race is soon. Your swims will supercharge your race
minni- still high on pain killers ? How's the recovery ? Hope your being patient
Barry - very impressed with your big mileage and consistent swimming. I seem to be able to do one or the other. Good nearly LR too
14.5 miles -7.53mm-in the rain and wind. Forgot how enjoyable being out in the elements is. Just over 50 miles this week but disappointingly only one swim. Bit worried that Xmas will curtail my training. 2Turkey dinners so far.
