AA-good to see you back in LR territory- dont you think its harder psychologically to go back there than stay ticking over with them every couple of weeks?A few more LRs and you'll be back in marathon shape.The trip in April was planned that way and also to force me to rest.This one was part of our Summer hols.
Barry-my cycling friends swear by flat coke-do you use diet or regular?Any post race blues? Looking forward to hearing more about your race day experiences. Is that your slowest/toughest marathon? Next goal?
Managed a few runs and exercise bike sessions whilst away but need to up the workrate a bit really.Swimming was tough as the pool is very small and the sea had some big waves and a strong undertow-surprising for the Med. As an example in an 800 m swim in one direction 400m took me just over 7 mins going back the other way nearly 12 mins!
Just over 13.5 miles last night 7.28 mm av .Happy with that and nice to run in a cool climate and off sand.
My friend called my bluff and now we are both signed up to do the Salford Tri Olly distance on Sunday. Nervous as never done that distance before and am expecting to struggle on the bike.
