Pirate spotting

Posted: Yesterday at 10:10

Major - hi - "unknown pirate" here.  Good to meet you yesterday, albeit briefly.

I didn't see any other pirates.  Flyaway clear to quick to be caught.

The course had more cumulative ascent than I'd expected & was a tad windy.  Felt good at the finish and not too bad today either but I had a few moments along the way.  Not too disappointed with 5:21 for a solo century.

Pleased to read (on other thread) of your excellent approach to recovery.  Mine wasn't too different, assuming there is a decent amount of carbohydrate in a curry and a couple of bottles of red?  Maybe not then.

See you again in Austria, if not before.

Good to meet Major Disaster on today's Spring Saddle Sportive in Newmarket. Windy & bumpy but current standings (on Strava) have me in 3rd place. I'm expecting that to fall once the other 1997 participants upload their rides!

Caring for a wetsuit...

Posted: 17/04/2015 at 14:34

A quick rinse after each swim to get crud out.  More thoroughly if I've been in sea water.  The mistake I made once & won't ever again was not turning my wettie inside out.  It was then left for 6-8 weeks post race & when I came back to it, it was slightly mouldy & a little whiffy.  It took more effort that I'd care to go through again to get it sorted (many washes in Milton) but prevention is definitely the best cure in this case.  Happy swimming!

Lunchtime jog.  Weekend weather looks like it promises to allow some good training...

Extream Ebdurance

Posted: 16/04/2015 at 14:25

I've started supplementing with L-Carnitine.  It's basically Salazar / Farrah / Nike Oregon's fault for bringing in back into public focus.

I'm using the basic stuff sold by My Protein.  It's supposed to take 12-24 weeks before there is a positive impact by which time the training should have ramped up sufficiently that I'm much better prepared for the endurance of Ironman so I don't know if the results will be tangible.  Whether it works practically, psychosomatically or not at all there isn't an obvious risk other than on my pocket.

I looked up Extreme Endurance and I couldn't for the life of me figure out the cocktail of stuff they put in it.  On that basis I wouldn't be inclined to put it in me.
