Training for a shorter Tri

I'm managing to stick with a turbo and a swim each week but running still eludes me.

I vote alternative three currently although if the titanium frame becomes an option at some point well...

Hope you get in, fingers firmly crossed.

Another fan of pork over crackling here, although I feel that may be influenced by completed ineptitude at cooking crackling.

I've gone back in time and am now shredding for the next 30 days, I forgot how much it hurts. M&Ms are helping .

My max heart rate was worked out as 220 - my age and then tested with a few park runs and it seems right. I can go back over 3 years of Garmin data and never gone higher.

I've done a few run coached sessions and technique workshops and have got orthotics to help with my funky legs. My run actions is now considered OK with what I have to work with.

It could well  be I lack run fitness as although I've done a several tris from sprint to middle distance this year I have suffered from glass leg syndrome so run training hasn't been what it should have been.

But I have been running for 3 years now and can happily do 7 miles without issue so I find it frustrating that 2 miles still has me in Z3 plus not matter how slow I go.

I tried with just running and not worrying about the zones this year and my runs have all been an average of Z3 +

Really need to try and sort it out before I go long next year.

You are completely binkers and I am very jealous and want all the prep and ride details as you go please.
I would add chamois cream to your list.

10 min miles in Z2 I dream of 10 min miles but I can't manage those even in Z5.

I'm starting to wonder if I have an issue as I cannot physically run and be in anything lower than Z3, even 14 min mile-ing on the flat has me in Z3.

My zones are right, so it must just be that I'm a very crap runner. The debate is do I walk so I'm in Z2 or continue with the very slow Z3 jogs and hope as I do more the heart rate will decrease?

I've been lucky enough to sign up for a 2 year deal. Year 1 went very well so fingers crossed for year two

So you think you don't need to test until after go live? I mean seriously what planet are you from? 

If I reply "OK but if you test after go live and it doesn't work it won't be a priority for me to fix it" you get upset?

You would think entering an IM race for next year would have spurred me on but no. Its true I have a cold but I'm quite horrified at how it has nocked me for six and I'm eating everything in site still.

Upside is when ever I come out of this funk I will be able to tell myself I have definitely had plenty of rest and plenty of food so I should be good to go.

I am still managing the clubs weekly turbo and swim session.

SC Hugs but I  have to say I'm really impressed, how on earth do you break a fire place? No wonder you're tired!

booktrunk - glad to hear I'm not the only one who has needed an emergency hairdresser visit after a home dye attempt.

I've been a little under the weather lately but hoping things will improve soon, vast amounts of cake and chocolate have helped. I also like Christmas cake and am happy to help with the disposal of it The more icing the better.

I appear to be unique as I'm feeling better now the clocks have changed...
