Ben - Congrats on the PB! Emz - Glad the quiz went well! Chicka - Good mileage Chunky - sounds promising
Shuffled my plan for today and taking a rest day instead of tomorrow. Simply because I am away Wed-Fri next week and I am trying to turbo every other session. This way I can Turbo tomorrow and Wed morning before I go and I don't need to take bike and turbo with me. No need to force anything.
Therefore I have trained 6 times this week for 4hr 36min. Slightly longer than last week and that is the aim right now...keep building a little extra each week. Not too bad for somebody that had pretty much 2 years off from any sustained training.
What: Rest day Why: See above! Last hard: Earlier this week Last rest: Today
Rocco - I'm in Chepstow (The Welsh part!) Plenty of decent rides around here and very little is flat! I just haven't got out there as yet.
No idea how busy they are for Wetsuit trials or what the procedure is. I'm considering having swim analysis done there and that is reasonably easy to book. I suspect it will be a case of arranging a suitable time with the shop but doubt you would have to wait long. After all, I'm sure they would rather they had your custom!!
Steady - Well done on getting out! Hope you aren't too sore!
Taking a rest day today as I am away Wed-Fri next week and this will allow me to turbo Mon and Wed. Taking the usual rest day of Monday would make training more awkward next week and I'd need to take the bike and turbo away with me. Not a good idea if I end up with a tiny little hire car. Ah, I love being constrained by logistics!
I work in Filton but live on the other side of the Severn Bridge! I swim in the local leisure centre. Haven't tried the Masters session yet but heard good things about it. If any of you guys are local to Bristol and fancy it, we could do an OW swim at Bradley Stoke when the weather is less cold.
Didn't get out on bike...should have done but other things got in the way. Another hour on turbo later then.
+1 for the Tri Shop. Great shop and really nice, knowledgeable staff. They have some really good deals on at the moment too.
Should add - great training day today. 1600m swim done at lunch. Felt really good. Fellow swimmer highly recommended the masters class there as well. May bite the bullet and go week after next. Followed up with easy run this evening. Deliberately very slow to keep HR down.
Hoping to take the bike out tomorrow...depends on overnight frost though
Oh, and Camlo - trust me...I had 6lb to lose! Lost considerably more pounds on kit this week though!!!
