Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: Yesterday at 22:17

how did it go BS?  (The appt about insoles and the spin class). Manflu can be cured with a slap from a wet fish you know? 

RPitch you are doing really well, we all miss the odd session so dont feel too bad when it happens. 

Steady - hope you find your mojo

Razor - zone training is all new to me, what would your normal pace be for that kind of run If you didnt have a HRM on?

2 swim sessions and 2x 30 mins turbo sessions done. 

Swim sessions done in under the hour but not sure i am doing drills properly (well i know i am not). Bike was Z2 which had me sweating like a pig and another at 100spin but Z1 which i struggled to combine - felt like legs were turning over sooooo fast and heart rate kept sneaking too high.....

Forgot to say PG - we went to a lebonese restaurant which had rave reviews and it was the most basic food i had ever eaten (lentil based everything) and we sat on the floor! We laugh when we see it now.

Big hugs to everyone dealing with crap, my mother is still being an arse and we have only rehomed 1 cat so far. She is now snappy because we have told her she has to reign in her spending and she doesnt want to hear it! 

I am doing cotswold in July so desperate not to let anything scupper my schedule in the 1st week. That meant doing 30 mins turbo at 11pm last night! Tri training doesnt have to be too consuming, if you can do a session of each discipline each week then you will get around and your base fitness is already well above a lot of the entrants Caro. 

Ttid - do your children automatically get dual nationality? 

Nurofen - so sorry to hear things are far from good. I guess he is spouting at you and he may also be struggling with finishing the other relationship which is not your fault! Let him rant and then at least you can start from the bare bones again without him hiding anything.

Hoggle - what a lovely birth story, sounds incredible. 

CC - logistics for your races are as stressful as the training and running! 

Lotte - Wow, just Wow, musical, sporty and party animals! 

CM - I am sure T would say no but could you suggest some flexibility over xmas or is he taking them away? Are you working?

Fab running, nativities and big YIPPEEEEE to baby Hoggle! It does feel like everyone is getting into the spirit of things and not just the commercial crap! 

PG - 1:50 sounds a reasonable target aslong as course is similar. You must be well chuffed. 

CM - big hugs to you - Christmas is always difficult to juggle when you have to share kids. Don't you have them Christmas day though? Are you sleeping and eating ok, i know they suffer when you are anxious about stuff? we are braving cardiff this weekend if you have any inside secrets, booked to do ice skating Saturday evening but a bit scared to go on the ride after the accidents they had! 

didnt watch spoty (or xfactor, im a celeb or strictly for that matter).... Still trying to sort my mothers problems while she spins a yarn for anyone willing to indulge her.

Started my ironman schedule today and actually did my swim a day early! 

Wish I was close enough to give some of your wee babies a cwtch, my kids just shove me away when i try and sneak a cuddle.

Silly question - i think i can front crawl ok - was 6th from last in a recent sprint tri but can plod swim up and down a pool for an hour. Anyhoo if i use a pullbouy between my legs I go the same speed as without; and if i use a float held out in front and just kick i go no where. 

I find my legs just dangle uselessly and i have no coordination at all so what starts as a flutter ends up looking like a random juggle of kicks, jerks and thrusts. 

Today i made an effort to practice kicks with the float but was gutted to be overtaken by a lady with 1 leg... Ok my legs are short but crikey!
