Chick-yes I meant AA. You will do very well in those two. Don't like cobbles...there were a few in Lisbon
Barry-a bag of tough training there and no complaints of tiredness orniggles which is most important . Is a cut back due? Any races coming up? Yes my running is going surprisingly well after my break though one week is a bit early to judge. Glad your young one is ok. Always tough balancing training hard and family life
2k swim yesterday and 18 miles today AV sub 7.50mm due to a ykw sneaked into the middle. That went well 20.52 11th overall and 1st in age group . More importantly only a few seconds slower than my last in November.

Bro- you earnt that rest. The mix? Maybe it's my age -( I remember decimalisation in the UK )or maybe my watch is set in miles but strava speaks in metric. 

7.5m this evening. I need a rest too

DD- stop interfering....I'm trying to persuade Bro to turn up in London...it's not as though she has to travel far. I'm sure there's some speed left in your old legs. Cross training is ok but Im hooked on running. That's a damn fine performance in those conditions. You seem at home in the hills. From what I've seen your non serious training is very impressive. 

Chick- which is your A marathon or are you going to emulate Chicks double of last year? 14miles is pretty good however you feel and it's a run in the bank. 

13k tonight in just under an hour with 7 miles at MP .... Not sure I could do 19.2 more though. Like the way I mix metric and imperial?

Chick- looks like you had a great break. Only been to Florida once and it rained for me too.It rained a bit in Oz and Singapore. The Australians we spoke to couldn't hide their smiles having had little rain for a few years. One area we went to was evacuated at Xmas due to forest fires. Very frightening for them. Back to more mundane things-which marathons have you signed up for?
Bro- I can see the speed coming already. You'll regret it in April ????. Doesn't sound fun sitting on a bus freezing. Respect to you for enduring that.
Barry-are you following any particular diet ? Your regime looks very demanding ..I'd be eating constantly

First swim today for nearly 3 weeks and happy with the way it went.

Barry - very impressive mix of training. Your 5m is so fast now - why not up it to 10k every so often on the basis you need to do 4 fast ones and blast the last bit in a marathon ? Seriously 4x45 min 10ks is the trick to sub 3.15. Not sure about limiting myself to 3 runs as I like the comfort of averaging 45-55m pw for about 6-8 weeks. I may have no choice though .I will try and swim 3-4 times a week if I can fit them in .
Bro- yes , I am motivated now. You are a running machine at the moment. I see some MP miles in your plan so it looks like you may be lining up with us in April after all ????. When is your next mud fest ?
Chick- when are you home? My plane stopped off in Munich and to say it was freezing there is no exaggeration.
Back home by 9am today so used the jet lag to get out for 12m at just under 7.55mm av.Interesting running in zero temperature,gale force wind, rain, hail and sunshine in one session .As Barry said my fitness is still there or thereabouts.

DD- if you're ticking over , my ticking over is in slow motion
AA-40mile recovery week is going some at this stage . Can't see any lack of motivation on your part. Sadly my hip continues to trouble me. I think it's my ITB as I also get twinges outside my knee. Just had 3 weeks travelling in Australia -Perth, Adelaide , Great Ocean Road , Melbourne and finishing in Singapore. A trip of a lifetime. Just wish I could have run a lot more
Chick- sounds like another great trip. Ah Boston Strong takes me back to 2014 . Well done on 50m pw btw. Is it humid there?
Three weeks averaging 20m pw is poor and not helped by excessive consumption. Time to get back on track. Not sure I'll cope with the weather. Need to see someone about my hip too

Barry- I'm not one for tats but would go for a i dot m though . Bit worried I may not get to London. Lots of toilets here so I have no worries running outside apart from animals that want to kill me
DD- niggles are ok but it's when they progress into something worse I get worried. Like your idea of ticking over. No mud here though the locals can't help smiling at the unusual arrival of rain
AA-good base building there keep them going and the LRs and stay uninjured

Nothing for 3 days. Hip too sore so giving it a break but not for too long. Anyway still walking lots every day.

Barry-an IM is an IM whatever it's called . Glad all is still going well. Safer to do the biking indoors at the mo
Free-don't blame you suffering Cnba itis - I'm wondering why I bother too. Anyway enough thinking and more running. You'll get there in good shape
AA-welcome back . I'm not one for intervals and think you'll see he rewards with your new routine Do the odd ykw and 10k for a bit of speed
Still ticking over -25 miles this week. Enjoying running and looking at parrots wallabies etc and looking out for tiger snakes and spiders . Hip continues to trouble me

Bro- great XC ,I'm enjoying following your slipping and sliding in the mud. 

Barry- looks like you're IM training is progressing welL. When are you getting your bike out on the roads? Do you plan a test cycle around the hills where IM will take place and the lake they use too for that matter ? They aren't too far from me. Not been to physio for a while but I need to or maybe I need to see a hip specialist. 

Away for a while and have managed an 8 and 7 mile run and lots of walking. Bit worried about the hip and  struggling with the heat. Just hoping to tick over for the time being.
