Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: 30/03/2015 at 12:33

All sounds like it's going very well in here My training is on track as in I'm getting the sessions done. But I'm worried that I'm slipping into old bad habits and just getting the session ticked off and  completed , rather than doing the session well. So intervals are being lost, easy resistance on Turbo etc. I guess it's good that I've noticed it, now I just need to HTFU and get on with doing them properly.

The eating side of things, no weight loss but I'm armed with better knowledge and have managed an improved week last week. Oddly I am now surrounded by food as I carry my good snacks, lunches etc around with me. I ordered a smoothie blender thingy but that arrived broken on Friday, I'm hoping the replacement working one will arrive today. I'm losing popularity at work though, fish is my main lunchtime meal

Where would you fit in?

Winchester at 58% but then I live in  South Norfolk which scored 53% so not bad either. My lowest score was 43% so all pretty similar. Also the write up for Winchester was the opposite of what they said of me so I think they weren't putting like minded  people together?

Never had a problem with mine coming lose and agree with the 2mph gain. I love my tri bars, always good for a little lie down when you're feeling a bit tired mid ride.

Hmm perhaps there's an experiment waiting to happen, how many blueberries can you stuff into a raspberry. Lunch time excitement awaits

Today lunch time thoughts, is it a good idea to put you blueberries into the whole in the top of the raspberry. Does this make them nicer? I'm told so , may have to investigate

Buttercup, I'm off to Barcelona this year having not made it to the run a Outlaw my fears are about just getting that far. I think reminders of the sea swim haven't helped, my swimming is getting stronger every year but I haven't swum in the sea yet and a windy day on the lake had me struggling last summer...

I have to get my eating sorted out as I am EASINT ALL THE THINGS already which isn't helping and I'm getting niggles purely because I'm carrying too much weight at the moment.  It' shard to get everything under control isn't it, I can do the training but fail on the eating or I can do the eating but fail on the training or do both of those but fail on the work and family bit.

Mind you , no one said it wold be easy

Anyone got an ideas for good post work out food that isn't junk food ?

Why is it that a few glorious wonderful days of feeling like you are getting fitter, that you are on track and your A race is achievable are swiftly followed by horrible doubts and depression. Or is this just me? General kicks in my direction appreciated, not having trouble with motivation to do the sessions, more  just oh my god what have I signed up for and I can't bear to fail a 2nd time thoughts...
