Starting to notice that i am maybe a bit leaner but performance wise i am not sure as i am sooooo tired. Found a lift to a 90min coached swim session on Weds so going to try and get to that. put my 2x hour run sessions together on saturday and ran 12 miles but got some shin pain so taking that as a warning to stay off the tarmac!
I know this is probably everyones A race but are you staying clear of other local races? I want to do our Elan Valley 20m in March but it usually wipes me out for a week! Can i afford that???
Hi minni, when and how far is your tri? can you do all the bits separately or are you needing to build up too? I have entered an IM but no way can i do the distances yet let alone put them together so using shorter tri's to practice transitions, getting used to jelly legs and learning how to fuel.
Buffs are brill especially as when you do warm up you can whip them down or tie to a belt/ strap. My hands always feel toasty just as i get to the end of my session... Tried my neoprene diving gloves today on the bike and they were useless which was a disappointment.
BS - good luck getting foot sorted, gutting when training is going well to have a set back.
Alex - wish i could drop 6lbs.... Have you done that distance before?
Struggling to stay with fink and it is only the base weeks!!
My legs are trashed!!!!! Set off with instruction for hubby to meet me there at 1:30 but he got into a battle over cycling gear so was late and I had a 2 hour run instead..... Followed by 40mins on the bike. Made sure I squeezed in the car to come home!
Clear out is good CM, saw lots of kites as i ran by the feeding station. You ought to come up for the 5/20 milers.
CC - i have been in your situation when the actual seperation is the end of a long journey and actually is quite painless as you have already done the 'hard part'. That said if hubby did resolve work and moved home perhaps you could/ would rediscover each other? I love the idea of running boot camps, you could offer a real diversity from mood enhancing hikes to full on physical challenges with wild camping!
CM - glad you seem a little better today x
Just getting ready to run an hour to the elan valley so we can all bike and then i will have to run home again as cant get 4 of us plus bikes in the car.
