Nell - Solid strong running from you as per, you've certainly put the training in so hope you get what you deserve at York. Only just started cycling and go out solo so can't comment but common sense would say to not block the road, some drivers are n't the most patient.
Another swim club session yesterday afternnon and really enjoyed it, coach was impressed with my effort levels but after 45 mins commented "you look knackered and you're technique has gone" not one to mince his words. 15 miles run this morning at 7:44 avg and it was hard going probably due yesterday's efforts but another 11 miles on top of that in 3 weeks time, can't wait.
Nell - Good running and you're right a great morning for it.
2 swim sessions yesterday, one off nights in the morning and club session last night. 48 miles out on the bike this morning and really enjoyed it, have n't been out for a couple of weeks but achilles was a little tight this morning so delayed planned longish run until tomorrow.
Nell - Nice pacy running. I read the article on the Hanson plan a while ago and the logic makes sense.
2old - I think me and you have the same running strategies/luck, we always enjoy running at a faster pace than recommended, and are quite injjury prone, so maybe the Hanson plan is the way to go. Excellent training from you.
Swimming lesson yesterday and after last friday's 400m time trial my coach said my turns were very poor, "it was like watching an interval session in the pool" so worked on using the wall and strong leg kick to get a good start to every length. 11 miles this morning at 7:26 avg.
Don't know how everyone else fees but maybe it time admit this thread is lost is the depths of RW. We seem to have lost a lot of regulars(cause they can't find us) and due to not being seen under the Hot Threads or Spring Marathon banners we won't attract any newbies. I think we need to start a new thread under a very similar banner, I know we will lose all the history. I don't know who's been on the thread longest out of Chick, kfc, Kiwi or 2old but they could have the honour of kickstarting the new thread.
2old - very impressive tri especially the swim. Plan for Abo, is 15 to18 this weekend, 20 next, then 15 the weekend before the race. With a shorter run and a MLR during the weeks.
kiwi - well done onthe HM, good to see you are positive about it and racing again.
kfc - well done on your half for other reasons, rather you than me racing with a hangover. And woah yourself I know my swimming is n't anything special(yet) and pink is good but the 1 length race was headstartless(new word). I suggested the 10 second per length handicap to make the 400m race fairer.
5 miles this morning in the mist after nights - all good. Then the dentist, result is I need to have a tooth pulled, the one that's caused me grief over the years, it's now dead and has an abscess beneath it causing infection. Planned for the week before Abo, interesting the dentist said I would feel better/ fitter after due to fighting the infection would be causing the body to be weaker and funnily enough my resting heart rate has been a lot higher for the last few weeks.
