Wow that is an amazing time for C2 2000m time trial. My best so far this year is 7:12 - I think i just need to push it. It doesn't help that there is only one good rowing machine in my gym. One moves backwards and forwards all over the floor and the other two are weird water based things. I guess the wedding must be soon Sense seeing as you have done the Stag do?
So today i did my first triathlon. Was enjoyable but my body is hurting like I've done a full marathon (I am also grumpy which I often get after a marathon - think this could be hydration nutrition linked) I wouldn't mind but it was only a sprint distance. Toying with the idea of doing an Olympic distance one in Salford in July.
Not sure if i mentioned on here that I've entered the Robin Hood Marathon just to keep my mileage high before aiming to go sub-3 in London. I'll give Robin Hood a go at sub 3 but don't think the course is that great for fast times. What is everyone else up to now the spring marathons have finished? Did anyone do Edinburgh today? Hope everyone is signed up for Angela's Magic Mile!
Sense I would defo echo what Angela says about the 2k. Try a few 500m intervals. I remember it was a something Denise Lewis used to use when she couldn't get to the track. I hate/love the 2K. Once I've reached halfway I am fine but it's a balancing act as it counts down from 1500m to 1000m. I generally just want to get off at that point. I also hate the projected finished time at the bottom but guess I could use a different display option
Good point about the weight One Gear. I find I have the same problem that people think I look ill if I lose too much.
Now that everyone has completed their spring marathons do we need to find a new home? Congrats to everyone with their shiny new pb's. I know some of you are disappointed to miss a target time but there is always the next marathon. I just hope they measure the courses correctly.
My next marathon is going to be Nottingham which I think will be difficult as it has a few hills and incorporates a half too! I took too long to sign up for York (I am on the waiting list) so Nottingham it has to be. I did look at Loch Ness but I can't justify the travelling all the way up there this year.
