RW Forum Six - Sub 3:30

Barry - don't worry about the swimming ..it's getting there believe it or not. A break through moment occurs every so often....usually when I'm thinking of quitting. Encouraging (excellent)11 miler by you ..one or two more of those and I'm sure confidence for Abbo will start to return. Don't know about you but I'm convinced TRI training gives me a bit more speed which reminds me my marathon pb was after a summer of it .

 I was thinking the same as you about needing to kick start this or starting a new thread. Shame about the history but I suppose it will still be somewhere. I think the honour must go to Chick Kiwi or KFC. I'm off for a bit so will look out for the new one .

no run today but did an hour and a half spinning.

Nell- I stopped the TM at full time as I thought it unsafe carrying on with all that was going on on the field. You're probably right about the effect of 20 milers. I wonder if they are why I get injured. Fast intervals there and good dawn run too. No wonder you're knackered. I'm not suggesting you vary from the schedule ..I'm fascinated watching how it plays out - definitely stick with it. 

Yes what happened to Ant? 

Planned an easy 8 after work but it was a bit faster than expected- 7.36mm. Couple of hours  recovery after that and a mile swim session of intervals and technique stuff. I'm knackered too.

Nell-no suprise your legs were tired  bet you are looking forward to the taper. Im interested to see how you get on without the traditional series of 20 mile LRs in your schedule

Barry-Im not so sure Mrs2O would enjoy the competition you have ongoing with Pink.She would probably stop to drown me. Painful teeth didnt seem to slow down Dustin Hoffman  in Marathon Man. The last thing you want is that affecting your concentration over 26.2 miles.I had hoped to see a 7 in my swim time and it may have been but I will never know because it includes transition. Good to see you got another painfree run in and all starting to look on course for Abbo for you.I know I have lost the physical conditioning to run over 10 miles at present even though Ive got the aerobic conditioning.

Rest day on Monday .Signed up for the Great North Swim 2 miles next year so went and swam 2.6k at lunchtime.A long way to go yet. Ran 7.5 miles last night watching Liverpool--enough said!

Chick- dumb struck !  2 hour run after Achilles trouble. Impressed. Great that there were no problems too ..probably the most important point. Take care rebuilding. I agree ...that Autumnal feeling arrived today...looking forward to running in the dark soon 

Pink- good running and swimming and don't worry about the tunnels,you'll sprint through them

Kiwi- have fun in Germany ...school trip ? Octoberfest more likeThink the TRI training helps with the speed...such as it is .congrats getting that race done so well 

Barry- very pleased that all went well....even if it was uncomfortable. How are you planning the remaining phase to Abbo?

Nell -another one banked ,not many to go 

KFC- about time your tough schedule caught up ...good going all the same. 

Fleetwood Tri was my last TRI of the season. Fleetwood can be a bleak place when windy and wet but yesterday was glorious. 400m swim 8.20 including transition,20 k bike 40.20 including transition ,5k run 20.38 total 1.09.20. 7 mins quicker than last week though the swim was 100m shorter. Pleased with my run ..only 27 secs slower than Saturdays park run . Happy with the cycling too as I do very little and was only 30secs behind a friend who regularly cycles over 100 miles a week. Bit sad the TRI season is over but now I can recross from the dark side and like Chick start building my running up again.

Nell- I've always thought the Hansons plan as tough because of the consistently hard runs required. I'm sure you'll get through it and am keen to see the outcome . 

chick- surely that can't be why this thread is buried away. Not happy here if it is Maybe someone from RW watching this will comment?

Park Run today. 10th,14 seconds faster than last week 20.10 Garmin time . Sub20 still eluding me but getting nearer.....it's only 11secs for !!!!s sake . Fleetwood Sprint tri tomorrow.

Oomp- when I did run sub 3.15 marathons I could never do tempos at 6.50 that was too fast for me and was my half marathon pace and I could only do it in races. My tempo was nearer 7.00mm but I didn't do much of that. a lot of my runs -especially MLRs-were near MP or just under apart from my LRs which were about 30-45secs slower. I logged lots of miles which is why I was always injured. I am interested to see how many Nell does. I suspect not as many as we might expect 

got caught up in the vote stuff on TV last night so didn't sleep much . Swam just over a mile today to clear my head.

Nell-I'm very impressed by the consistency of your runs and today's was another example...good distance too Looking forward to seeing you in action in your marathon ...it can't come soon enough 

another hour spinning today plus some foam roller work ...ouch . Pity I have to be sensible and not run

Chick-like the idea that 7 miles is a starting point

Oomp- I know I am running my runs too fast but I am not yet on a marathon schedule. My Achilles keeps warning me it's too soon My runs are relatively short and are part of my TRI training routine so I suppose I'm trying to make them all count inbetween the swims and spinning . Nell on the other hand is marathon training . Glad to see that hilly run went well .Looks like Sunday was a blip.

Nell-pretty good running by you too-are you doing a long or short taper?

Barry-tested the achilles again yet?

Chick-welcome back.I have to search to find this thread.Great news that you're over the niggle and building again.You are half a mile ahead of me -my max is 7.5 miles. I will do some longer stuff next week when the tris finish. Yes , missing the old crew too...dont forget DD too.If this carries on maybe we should jointhe 3.15ers? Ive decided active recovery is the way to deal with my achilles(and state of mind)

7miles this lunchtime 7.26mm
