Razor - Thanks for the info on My Triathlon, some good deals on there but as its my first wetsuit and I have no idea on sizing/type I think I need on fitted/tested. Good swimming from you.
Cake - are you going to tell us your race line up?
Did my first Brick session on Thursday 20k on the indoor bike followed by 5k run. First mile of run was interesting but generally OK and 910xt worked a treat.
2 hard kick sessions at swim club last 2 days and I think they may have took their toll on run this morning. Was cold/windy and meant to unfuelled, 21 miles done but started to struggle from 17 so took the "emergency" gel.
O4S - If you think BA is noisy you should hear Pink, everyone in the house wakes up when she takes the dog for a walk first thing and then wakes up again when they come back, how hard is it to open/close a gate. Happy birthday to BA. I'm sure you hold your own against the alpha males.
2old - Well done on the 20.
nell - The wind has made it down south.
2 hard kick sessions at swim club last 2 days and I think they took their toll today. 21 miles this morning at 8:01 avg. Very windy and cold, Was planning to make it unfuelled but started struggling at 17 so took the "emergency" gel.
AA - Miles logged in difficult conditions, look at the positives.
DD - Always nice when if feels good and you can kick on.
Nell - Yeah on the road, at first I thought you meant off road then realised, only use the tready when weather is too bad to go on the road.
Carrot - You are running well, target for 10K? 5k PB is 19:09(unofficial must let it go and move on).
Hour in the pool yesterday and a really impressive swimmer got into the lane with me, made it look so easy doing 4 lengths to my 2. First proper brick session this morning 20k on the indoor then 5k run, legs a bit strange for first mile but generally OK.
Nell - Yeah you are right all long runs seem to be coming in about 7:40 avg. Not intentionally aiming for that pace, setting off slow for first couple and then running comfortably and increasing the pace over the last few. Nice 10 from you.
DD - Well done on the long one, 56 miles a week is fit.
Freemers - Excellent mixed running from you, but hang on one post you are extolling the virtues of long slow running then smashing it with some 6.xx minute miles. Woman's perogative I guess.
O4S - Very well done on the win, sounds fun.
Chick - well done on the mileage, are you ramping up to your previous levels?
1 hour in the pool yesterday, was meant to be left breathing practice but lane was too busy and it would have been messy. So gave the legs a rest and used the pull bouy and just kept going, 2175m in just under the hour and one set of 1550m(should have kept going for 2 more lengths) in 36 mins so v happy.
5 miles with middle 3 quick this morning, effort mile splits 6:37,6:21,6:08
Alex - Did you brave the bike, too icy for me yesterday so indoor bike instead.
Minni - waves back, I think a lot on here are going long, but hopefully that will be us next year.
BS- Have you any experience of the Bristol Tri Shop, me and OH need wetsuits and are planning to book a session in their endless pool in Feb to get sorted.
Good run for me on Thursday - 10 miles including 3 x 2 mile repeats with 1 mile rec. Swim club on Friday night, coach tried to move me up lanes but after previous "meltdown" I declined. 20k on the indoor bike yesterday, a lot quicker than before - chose a higher gear and tried to keep the cadence around 90, followed by 30 mins S&C and swim club in the afternoon. 15 miles run this morning.
