Bracknell parkrun plus running there and back. Started hard then had second thoughts. Off to the coast for a few days then the Netherlands until next weekend.

Nice reps Bus, AG and Simon. I find 1km reps nicer than 800s, probably because I try to hold near 400 pace for the 800s and my 1km target is sightly slower. 1200s are interesting.

Good session Dachs, I assume Bristol is this weekend.

I think if I did a single 400m rep in 60seconds I'd say my work was done.

Annoying phrases - "reach out".

10mi TT last night, a short 25minutes. Happy with that and well on target.

Happy bday for yesterday SS. Sounds like a nice plan, especially the craft ale part.

A friend is having his Stag do in Brussels so looking forward to some silly beer out there.

1hr very easy HR run this morning. Didn't seem too bad out.

Are you a member of a local tri club? You could get involved with coaching there.

Nice one Ric!

Bus - as much as I dislike riding in such winds and rain I have to. It's on the plan!

As was today's 3mi tempo (10k pace). Route planned to allow 1mi WU and CD but going with the prevailing wind. Terrain was lumpy as Bracknell is built on a couple of ridges, but always good practise.

Anyhow - aimed for 3:59/km, came out at 4:06/km average which is annoying as it was the Shinfield and Marlow pace average too.

No number on the chest makes the legs turn slower in training.

Good effort in the wind Simon.

Good running over the weekend too chaps. Nice to see Phil getting back on form and Bus continuing with his normal finishing procedures.

Avoided most of the rain yesterday morning, but a battle to make headway on the bike and remain below HR limit. Got a little damp towards the end. Keeping a weather eye out for today's tempo session. Bloody wind.

There was some content that was chonked from above. Essentially blaming the UCI for being dinosaurs and behind the times.

Anyhow - what exactly is the wording of the UCI ruling? The CTT couldn't give a **** at club events and even at open events don't make a fuss.

UCI rules ban compression gear I think so that will be why cyclists don't wear them.


Wonder why, if it's not proven they make a difference?

Because compression is a relatively recent (

Everything on google says calves. Google calfs and the search comes up "Did you mean calves?" Standard plural of dwarf is dwarves with dwarfs being used more recently. Since 1937 when Disney called them "The 7 Dwarfs". I'm not a Grammar Wanker, just reading from t'internet.

Yet the plural of roof is roofs. Drives me crazy that one.

I wear long socks for runs ~1 hr upwards or anything that involves speed.

Briliant SS! Well done! Dean - bad luck.

Hope tomorrow goes well Matt.

Yesterday was first day off since the day before Shinfield. 15km inc Bracknell parkrun today. Paced daughter to a new PB and that's her 10th adult parkrun. She claims she will stop now.
