O4S - well done on an amazing ride. What were the highs and lows? Enjoy some r&r now.
Barry - you are well on target to smash Maidenhead.
2old - another nice long run.
Friday was 35 miles along the canal on a tough ride, yesterday's was 20 miles back as we managed to bunk on a train so First Great Western were running a few! got up this morning feeling really tired and a bit hungover! Cycled the 4 miles down to the start. 750m swim 13:51 T1 2:11 22k bike 43:03 T2 1.19 5.5k run 23:39. 5th woman 4th in age. 20 seconds off 3rd so have beaten myself up a bit but to be honest I am tired and haven't had an easy week. Need to taper for Maidenhead next Sunday this week and feel a bit better.
20 miles @8:35 yesterday. Entered the sprint tri. Oh shit! Road bike hasn't been out all year. Gonna do a lap of the course tomorrow. Was gonna do it today but it is pure festival weather here!! Good luck to miss 2old. Youngest AA went off to festival today. It's gonna be sooooo muddy. Haven't had rain like it for ages!!
Hello everyone. Just found this thread. Never done Amsterdam . Flying out from Southampton on the Saturday and back Sunday on my own. Looking forward to it. Managed my 4th 20 miler of this campaign today. Will have a long taper. Like hearing about those who have done it before.
Sorry to hear about nails (ow!) and broken bones.
Miss L well done on your long run. building up the distance is the hardest part but once you're there it's a good feeling.
Out of my 24 marathons I think I've only been happy with 6 of them! They are a beast!
Barry - well done. Fantastic bike leg too! Congratulations.
2old - nice weekly mileage. Hope the sciatic pain dies down.
Chick - love 1k reps - said no one ever!!
long run planned for me tomorrow. I'm decidin whether to enter the Reading sprint tri this sunday. Only thing is I'm cycling 40 miles along the canal friday and Saturday and lots of pubs will be involved..... Don't have to take the tri too seriously though....?
