Nell - Good news on your foot, are you planning to make more frequent visits to the physio for a regular foot massage.
Freemers - DOMS are good, means you raced hard.
Minni - That's one of the main problems with swimming, always room for improvement with technique. Not being able to see yourself swim does n't help as you think you are doing OK. Try and get yourself some one to one lessons, helps me a lot especially if I start picking up bad habits. My coach does say that once a certain level is reached then new focus is added, ie arm position/body roll etc to improve the stroke. No problem with me losing count of the lengths done as I am nowhere near swimming the distances that Pink is.
5 and a bit miles this morning, was meant to be slow but ended up steadyish as it was so cold.
2old - Current daily training avg is 80 mins which will increase as my running/cycling distance increases. I'm going to stick with the 3 runs a week plus cycling/swimming for VLM as it served me well for Abingdon especially with the 5 weeks running missed. I've heard of Lizzie Hawker, sounds like your son is having a great experience.
o4s - Good distance even if you are struggling a little. Did BA get lost in transition.
Hi Pink, What you will lose in the bike to your OH I am sure you will make up on the swim
Yeah hoping to not lose too much time on the swim, we already have a side bet sorted.
Swimming training at the club session went well on Friday evening but knew it was too good to be true as yesterday afternoon's session was a bit crap. Brick session this morning, 50 minutes on the bike followed by a 7.5 mile slow run.
