My sessions are currently about coaching some technique into me as my freestyle" was learnt via YouTube and it seems I may have a few bad habits...the kids at the pool blow my mind, the top kids are training upto 60km a week

i am current doing lots of drills with a kick board etc..... I thought I was a fit lad, a couple of sessions of club swimming have made me realise I am not ha ha.

Up at 5am, in pool for 5.30am. Got a top swimmer at my school and she has been training like this before school for years and then after school too.....

If you said I would be doing the same a few months back I would think you were mental, now I am buzzing that I can train while my mrs and kids are sleeping so I dont get any grief ha ha 

I think it is quite normal for swimming clubs to train at these hours as those competing at a high level train a lot of hours each day

Outlaw training and family/job works really well doesnt it ha ha.....All the council run pools are full of kids and close at 8pm meaning no swimming for me, start work at 8am so cant get in in a morning either.....

Problem now solved, joined my local swimming club so my training plan is

3 x 5am swimming sessions a week (Mon/Wed/Fri)

5am midweek run (7 miles Tues) and a long weekend run (14 miles if no marathon/ultra to run)

2 x 30 miles rides (Monday and Friday evenings) and a long ride on a weekend. 

Hoping this will be enough cause reckon I could be in for a divorce otherwise.

With my injury record over the past 2 years there is a good chance at least one place will come up via the reserve list

OSB is a commercial outfit that gets a huge amount of praise for the things it does well and rightly so. That doesnt mean it should be beyond criticism when it screws up. The email saying that "some" peoples emails were not sent out this morning was always going to cause problems as 

a) It was not true as non of the emails had gone out

b) It wrongly had people believing that they were going to miss out in what had become and unfair sign up process. 

There can always be unforeseen problems but when people are shelling out £278 they have a right to be annoyed imho.....Having said that, it could be worse, Steve Crams Marathon on the North in my home town turned out to be short of a marathon by 200 yards courtesy of bad stewarding lol....Only the winner ran the full distance

Can you imagine getting to the finish of Outlaw to find out the next day you hadnt actually completed the IM distance

Don't think anybody on there has been Rude Flat Footed but without being funny they have just charged £8 x 1450 or £11600 in booking fees for a computer to process payments, its big money and the delay may cost some people their places depending on their circumstances etc

Now a sensible company would send an email out with another potential time say 6pm tonight so it gives them time to sort issue and we dont have to sit here on refresh button like divs all day
