Hahaha makes me laugh when the very people / places where things should be cutting edge are rubbish! I had a meeting yesterday with 2 Drs who both flatly denied having access to a system but when asked to check they both 'found' emails telling them how to log in......
love the idea of a group 10k!
Photo on fb of Archie's haircut, wedding This Sunday then off to Gran Canaria!
PG, RF and JT - I need a training plan for my ironman. Do i need to buy Finks book? cant do double sessions 6 days a week so thinking i need to ensure sessions count (Brookie - like your run less, run faster)? Indeed do i need a 'plan' if it freaks me and i try to stick to it religiously causing me an injury!?
Had a dream last night that I couldnt run! Could breath and felt fine but like legs were in a vice and everyone was shouting at me to run but it was like water jogging! Got me thinking this morning that maybe signing up for an IM is a bit (a lot) unrealistic?
I can swim 2k in 50mins, i can bike 30 miles in 2 hours and i just did a 4:15 marathon but not done beyond those distances or put long things together. is it doable with a reasonable stab at a training plan? Have young children so i wont be doing double sessions 6 days a week!
DB - it was 750m in the sea but the bike was up Penglais Hill past the university and on through Bow Street and Talybont to the turn around in Talysin (or something like that). Very hilly and climbing up the back of Penglais with 18 miles in your legs was a challenge! Run route was along the promenade then right and up hill to a golf course (never knew there was a 'country lane' in the middle of the town), then back right along the whole sea front to the harbour end and back to the finish in the middle. You need strong legs as i did see a few pushing their bikes!
Well done Pete, glad you had some support and company albeit subdued during the 'i want to stop' phase.
Boo to eye infection Maths, hope drops help.
Shoulders sore today - not sure if from swim or gripping tightly on the bike?!
Not good to hear about so many niggles folks, well done for sticking to plan RP but if calf is angry then maybe you need to get something looked at?
BS have you used fink before? Looking for some ideas to get me to IM in July.
Did a sea sprint tri earlier in Aberyswyth - was 5th from last in the swim but overtook a few on the bike and a few more on the run. Swim felt ok but i just cant seem to go faster! Very hilly bike which i struggled with but obviously not as much as some others.
