Hi Swims, unfortunately it's during training and races that my legs feel trashed and its my joints so compression doesn't help. It's really just down to a lack of run miles on my part. Unfortunately we can't overload the run like we are the bike as my legs just wouldn't take it, glass leg syndrome for me I'm afraid.
Maths I'd say do Nottingham at which ever distance then decide about the others once you know how that's gone?
My MIO has lasted 7 hours Max so far which is about what it says in the manual. It also doesn't like going swimming as it takes quite a while to work again afterwards, so if using it for a race I put it on in T1, then I tend to forget to turn it on
Chip time 1hr 18mins 42 seconds for the 10K slower than everyone I know but I did it and it was a big training session on Saturday so I'm happy with it.
I'm pretty over the moon with how the training weekend went 65.3 mile bike in 3hrs 58 mins on Saturday with the middle two hours averaging over 17mph as that was the tempo part I totaled 19 1/2 hrs training last week, so I'm feeling more confident that I have genuinely put the training in for Barcelona and that I should make the bike cut offs.
I'm concerned about the run now, long runs are coming in at 15 min/mile av, no published cut offs for the run but reading back on here from past reports it seems likely that they exist. Since rain cut short the group ride yesterday I went trainer shopping in the afternoon and have shiny new brooks aurora 3's which are very bouncy so I'm hoping they will help as most runs I feel very heavy legged and every steps been jarring lately.
Fingers crossed and I see a lot more training the next few weeks, 17hrs total planned this week!
Oddly I should be very tired today but instead I'm pretty wired, which is rather nice.
