Dinner out was lovely- possibly have a new couple to hang out with!

No way can I get up early tomorrow for pre work training. Late night for me. I'll get some in after work pre dinner out (again) this time with my sister!

LMH- Teeth problems??

Going out for dinner tonight. I have 5 more sessions to fit in 3 days. Not sure it's going to happen. I'm working in theatre Sunday as well.

Ale- sounds painful!

Morning all (end of day for me!)

What: 7.6km done in the morning before work, 11.2km this evening after work

Why: Nailed the double and legs kept giving!

Lyrics: Nope

Last Hard: Being dissapointed in x-men last night......

Last Rest: 13/05

Average pace of 5:23 min/km for both runs. A bit quick but it was that cold I never looked at my garmin until I got home. The morning run was pretty tough... I feel I need the day for my legs to warm up. I tend to run better off a bike or a day of standing for some reason.

Dustin- Not envious of QoP

OH- loved the piccies!


Shower, dinner, wine, bed.... laters peeps

Morning all

What: 1 hour 20 turbo

Why: Too dark to run

Lyrics: YES!

Last hard: Leaving late today

Last rest 13/05

Hoping to get to sleep earlier than midnight tonight so I can possibly get to the pool in the morning before work. Highly doubt it will happen though

Happy running all

Let us know Emz! Both about the PB and what flavour icecream!!

Understood! I'll cut it to one 'tempo' and the remainder slow. I hate treadmill intervals anyway!!

What annoying me most is when your day is planned and you are ready to go at 4:30pm, then you find yourself still working at 7. I don't do very well on little sleep either. Urgh!!

Hey hey

Thanks for the advice guys!

I can make a 2 swim week doable and add in another run. That makes a LSR, "tempo" run and intervals as per program, then another one easy. I can also just supplement runs in when I have time. I could double train every day if I got my butt outa bed an hour early. But that's quite painful for me.. I try and limit my speed work to the treadmill, that way I feel there are more things I'm in control of and therefore less chance of injury (is that rational?).

The distance of a 70.3 doesn't scare me anymore and apart from my feet pain, the last one was tough but manageable fatigue wise. I just find it harder to not give up when running than I do with the others.

Anyway- keep the wise words coming. I'm serious about slowing down if it gets better results.

Dustin- I try this for the 6am mornings..... Snooze is so powerful when you know you don't HAVE to get up! I brought a head torch though... I have more motivation after work!

Morning guys

OL- your streak is hitting the big numbers!! Enjoy your run. By football do you mean soccer

Ale- Good on ya, Is the sun at least out to enjoy?

What: 50 mins treadie intervals (8x3 min hard, 2 mins rest) + warm up and cool down. Followed by Arms and core strength.

Why: sub 5 hour 50 half ironman is the plan!

Lyrics: No but I like them

Last hard: getting up at 6am to drive Alex to work

Last rest: 13/05

LMH- advice needed. I'm after just better peformance all round of the Tri. By biggest weakness is running. I would like 1 hour 40-50 HM time. Is the best way to go about this lots of long slow endurance running (and taking seriously, so not fast)?? I just need guidance to improve.. I was tempted to see a running coach but they are expensive and I kind of disagree that something can "teach" me how to do something as if one size fits all!
