Freemers - good luck today. See you're back to the speedy reps.
AA - oh no. My cold is still lingering.
Chick - my calf grumbled after my first proper road run the other day.
Barry - yeah shame you didn't have your garmin to record that. You Muppet!
Pink - belated happy birthday. I was looked at wetsuits last week and was advised to get an Ocra beginners and it has more buoyancy on the legs. I need to go and try on.
O4S - old? Never! Looking forward to hearing more about your training camp.
Nell - Hope you're ready for the blizzards coming in today?!
Things continuing to progress in the right direction here. Wednesday was 5.5 on road, rested an achy calf (!!!) on Thursday, did a brick of 14 mile bike/2 mile run on Friday then 22 on the bike yesterday. Going for an off road run this morning and will decide on how far once I'm out.
Previously any 'brick' sessions I did involved preparing dinner, hanging washing out etc in the transition so this was the first proper one I've done. Everyone says its hard to get going on the run and I found this too. It was like running through treacle and I chose an off road path, which is slightly harder too. However, I was please to see the fastest two miles recorder post op. I'm thinking that as well as the tri training this might be a good way to introduce some speed into the running. A good bike warm up followed by a short faster run.
