Brol - Maybe start calling them steady miles rather than MP
DD - won't see you there then I'm at Nottingham. Good effort on the hilly half. Not brave enough to go out in this weather on the bike, so indoor bike is getting some hammer.
2old - Nope just eating lots and trying to make it the good stuff, Good running as always from you even with the niggles.
AA - You're funny , not in the form I was last year. Good luck for tomorrow.
Chick - You may surprise yourself I ran a 3:15 and a 3:18 5 weeks apart. You'll soon be back on your monster miles.
Bit of epiphany moment in the pool Wednesday 2.5K swim, furthest ever 65 mins so not quick but very happy, rest day Thursday as youngest had operation, off nights and 8 o clock at hospital but she did n't go in until 1 so a bit floaty but everything went well and slept very well Thursday night. 2 hours easy on indoor bike Friday. 22 miles this morning, cold wet and a little windy gels at 6,12 and 18
2old - Amazing trip for you, sorry to hear your injury/wiggle woes. When you are running you are hitting a good pace and you have had a good couple of long runs in the past few weeks so you've still got the fitness. Have you considered backing off to 3 runs a week with lots of cycling/swimming ?
Chick - Another amazing trip, very jealous, and 50 miles a week sounds good to me.
Brol - I think you have some speed already( those 400's) and more to come.
AA - 10 easy and 10 MP at Bramley? Need to save yourself for Wokingham to drag me around sub 1:30.
DD - Very nice ticking over.
Training going well still, 10 steady miles last Thursday, couple of rest days Friday and Saturday with life getting in the way of training. First 20 of the campaign Sunday, wet windy and cold, last 2 miles were quickest just wanted to get home as feeling the wet/cold. Swim and bike yesterday. And today my usual Tuesday of 5 miles with middle 3 quick, speed is definately coming back. Will bike this afternoon.
Freemers - sounds like a similar plan to me albeit not started the 20's yet. will you run the 15 or 16 milers at a quicker pace than the 20s?
AA - yeah I'll be at London, fingers crossed obviously, I have n't done any intervals for a long time, see you at Wokingham for our annual get together.
2old - enjoying your strava travels. Yeah but won't be able to get the official m dot tattoo even though my eldest has threatened to buy me a tattoo for my 50th.
Training going well though not as much volume this week,
Wed - 121 swim lesson on Wednesday, the client after me was a 2:45 marathon runner who has just started swimming journey, coach got me to demo some stuff then I watched him and yeah that was me 2 years ago - struggling to swim a length. Thurs - 10 miles steady Fri - 2k swim Sat - Swim club , got bumped up a lane(and they were swimming wrong way) cause I got there a bit late and my lane chocker, all good though stayed at the back and relaxed, a year ago I would have freaked. Today - 18 miles done unfuelled , some tummy trouble in last 2 but otherwise all good.
2old - No road bike for a while, weather needs to get better and lighter mornings as need to train early. If your referring to Bolton, I'm not doing it, could n't justify cost with so much going on this year so doing the Cotswold 226 in July(think it is same day as IMUK) so pretty local to get practice on the course.
Training still going well 2 hour indoor bike Friday (15 mins easy 15 not so easy) x 4, 15 mile run Saturday morning then swim club Saturday evening, rest day yesterday long day at work and probably needed it. Gentle start to week with 1 hour easy bike this morning.
DD - Will I be seeing you in Nottingham or are you doing the new one? great training I know the feeling about warming up.
2old - Your running well regardless of your niggles are you getting regular physio?
Brol - well done on the XC.
Yeah no probs with washing machine, bought new one same day but rushed installing it and kinked feed hose, Nice flashing "H2O" alarm on display - all good now.
Training is going well:
Saturday - 2.5 hours indoor bike am, swim club pm. Sunday: 10 miles - first double figure run for a while. Monday - 2k swim 100m x 20 alternate pull and full stroke. PM 1 hour indoor bike. Tues - 5 miles with middle 3 quick, very cold. First quick miles for a while. wed - 2k swim. 100,200,300,400,400 and back down 15 sec rest. Physio, PM 1 hour indoor bike. Today - 10 mile run, PM 1 hour indoor bike.
I'm on nights this week and even though tiring it is very good for getting doubles in.
