Kiwi - Well done on the 13. Happy to remind when required.
2old- Great news, just plan 3 runs a week and stick to it for the next few weeks. Only race planned so far is Maidenhead HM in Sep.
kfc - well done on the 20.
Nell - nice pacy run from you, yeah 3:15 will be the target at Abo interesting to see what the outcome of my reduced running/increased (swimming and cycling) will have on my endurance.
Minni - very very well done to you Brol and Carrot, enjoy your hols.
Swimming club for me Sat afternoon, more at my level than Friday night's beasting. 35 miles on the bike sunday morning, furthest I've ever done and really enjoyed it, then an hour in the pool yesterday including some coaching from Pink to try and get me to breath to the left.
My weekly 6 miles with 4 middle at effort this afternoon, hot again so backed off pace a little and ran comfortably hard (HM pace?) and tried to get some consistency in the splits worked out pretty well - 6:44,6:44,6:44,6:36
kfc - Great photo, yeah I am aiming for the world famous Wootten Bassett Triathlon next April.
Kiwi - Make sure you do it one of the days.
Nell - which marathon are you training for?
13 miles blast on the bike yesterday afternoon, not too happy with the avg but included a couple of traffic stops and one rear wheel lock up, my fault travelling too close to a car down a country lane.
Swimming club last night, and Pink was happy as she was back in her old lane. But coach came to me and told me go in Lane 1(Pink's) lane, and very hard work, think I was trying to go too quick and form suffered. Pink wiped the floor with me and at one point she asked if I wanted to go ahead of her to which I replied " are you having a F****** laugh. He pulled me back to my old lane after 45 mins as he saw I was hanging, said I had done well and he wants to keep pushing me which is fair enough.
15 miles early this morning at 7:51 avg, 10 slow and then 5 at MP splits for MP 7:21,7:23,7:13,7:07,7:13.
kiwi - make the most of the heat, run to perceived effort and enjoy, then reap the benefits when it cools down.
Yeah nice in the pool this afternoon, my physio was in swimming, he's qualified for the triathlon world champs next month for his age group, I was taking the piss as for some reason he was by himself in the slow lane. I was going to jump in the fast lane, which was empty, but thought that would tempt fate and lead to a bad session. All good I even managed 3 lengths sort of continuous with a tiny break at the end of each length.
Cooks - Good running, maybe they thought you were really sweaty.
2old - Speedy recovery, take it easy, but knowing you that will be ignored, I need a pacer a Abo and I'm not going to keep up with Cooks.
DD - Enjoy.
My weekly quick run yesterday, 6 miles with middle 4 quick, splits for quick 6:33,6:40,6:45,6:34, hot and they were hard work, at the end of 4th I had a short sit down on the pavement and I must have looked a wreck as a passing woman asked if I was OK. 1 hour in the pool and this afternoon, much better idea than running in this heat.
