That's a seriously impressive target Joolska, I read last year how well you were running and will remind myself not to try and follow you.

Slokey, yes it's a long way off and I am guilty of doing too much too soon, I've been at 10+ hours since October and most of it has been at a really easy effort level.
Of course having two goals, London and Outlaw, may be my undoing.

Abbers, slightly biased towards the run at the moment with one eye on London, but it breaks down as:
Swim 2hrs 21mins,
Bike 5hrs 14 mins,
Run 6hrs 24 mins.

I'm sure after London the bike will be the dominant discipline.

Hi all,
Nice to see you all getting the mileage and long runs in.
16 for me this morning which is the furthest I've gone for a while, gives me 46 for the week which seems quite enough on top of the cycling and swimming.
Total of 14 hours training (we 'triathletes' talk in hours rather than miles )

Slokey, how do find the one on one coaching session. I could do with some of that but it's a luxury I can't afford at the moment, although my swim session with the club has really helped me improve my technique.

London- Sub 3. (Wishful thinking perhaps) or gfa.

OO53- Belated happy birthday, only another year before I join the half century brigade.
My parkrun PB is 18.01 (which is frustrating) so not too far off last week.

I really had a poor start to 2015 with a hip flexor niggle that kept me out of, Wokingham HM, Reading HM and London. This persuaded me to change my training habits, as the constant pavement pounding from running was always giving me grief.
I've had a trouble free year on the injury front since adding the bike and swim to my training regime. And I do feel swimming 2/3 times a week seems like a physio sesh on my legs as they always feel nice and loose after.

It doesn't seem to have effected my speed over shorter distances but I will find out what shape I'm in when I run Wokingham in Feb.

8 miles this morning with 4 at threshold, was a little tough.
I'm following the up to 55 miles p&d schedule for London, which allows me to bike/swim too.
I don't know if I'll have enough miles in the legs for a pb attempt, only time will tell.

The swimming is by far my worst discipline, I managed 30.25 for a 1500m open water swim at the Reading Tri, tbh I went off way too fast and had a bit of a panic 50 m in, got swam over and kicked, reverted to breaststroke until I got my composer back. I was 78th out of the water but managed to get down to 11th on the bike leg and I was 8th on the run.
Although the 'larger' athlete can put in a good swim, fortunately they can't run for toffee.

Since I've joined a Tri club my swimming has improved considerably, so plenty of time to improve that technique.

Yep! But sub 10 would be a stretch too far for me, but if I can survive the swim who knows as my cycling has improved lots especially now I have a slippery bike.

Hi All, just popping in to wish you all a happy new year.
I keep dipping in to the thread occasionally to see how you're all doing, can't help it really.
Some impressive results and stats from you all.

I've had a quieter year than usual on the running front as I've delved into the world of Triathlon, but still managed plenty of training on the bike and in the pool/lake too.

Stats for the year;
Running 1480 miles,
Bike 4075 miles,
Swim 65 miles.

2 vets wins at Dinton pastures 10k series and 11th Overall in my first open water Olympic distance triathlon.

This year I hope to get to the start line at London marathon but my main goal is Outlaw triathlon in July, so I'll be after tips from Slokey.

Oh, and I managed 18.13 this morning at Newbury parkrun which was pleasing.

Keep up the good work folks!

Just popping in to wish all those running London the best of luck.
Not had a proper read back, just checked out the Manchester crew, well done all with some very decent times.

I am back running (Hurrah!) and also doing a fair bit of cycling and swimming. I have a plan.
