Hope everyone's taper madness is ticking away nicely!! Fab PR yesterday Malcs!
Angela your marathon did look like good fun, did anyone not do it in fancy dress?
Hope everyone's injuries and niggles are on the mend.
To swim Coniston took 3hs 52mins Sense, same as any marathon we had water and feed stations along the way, only you get jelly babies on every station and gels too! and when you finish you get hot squash to drink. Haha so when you think about it at least I got 1 marathon sub 4 this year!
Been rather a busy week here,started training properly again this week, and loving it! Being brave hitting the track on Tuesday all by myself!! eek!
Hey Stan Im absolutely peachy! Been really busy this year, worked hard and absolutely loved it!
Triathlons are so much fun you should try one! I did my first tri this year with Clive it was absolutely epic such a buzz! The thing is not to underestimate the training involved. As for the open water swimming I would suggest finding a swimming group in your area to swim with, learn to love the open water before you start to think about everything else that will come with time and confidence. Last saturday I swam Coniston end to end, which is at 6 miles is classed as a marathon distance swim, it was just the best!
Ouch cocking up your calculations wasnt the best idea now was it! Always look at the positives! Granted not always easy to find, the next day they pop out a lot clearer! What other races have you got coming up?
I'm lucky DS2 is a very good friend of mine, he is coaching me, has worked out every step of my training plan. We speak daily and its helped him focus on something other than recovery from his foot injury. We met when I went to bootcamp first time. Other than that I would have applied for the Forum 6. I really do love the look of your plan only I already do a fair amount of milage, I will be sub 4 this year, and as for the other one....erm.... *choose words carefully tigger don't want to be made to feel a vilan again* it's not for me!
