Nursey - Always good to have Raf around when things are going wrong. I wonder if he will chain smoke all the way across Europe on our drive to the race... could cost me  a bit of time on race day.

Hows the training going in the snowy north?

DR NM - Drop me a PM if you want to gave some company on longer rides after Xmas.

List of Fink swim sessions

Posted: 21/12/2014 at 18:20

I found and I know a number of other have that Fink is very short on bike miles particularly if you don't have a history in cycling. If you have years of century rides behind you and you need to concentrate on the run or swim I'm sure it's fine

The swim sessions are ok, I found them a bit hard to complete in 1hr and I managed the swim at Challenge Henley in 1:28 (not fast but not dead slow either). Nice to have a plan when you get in the pool and helps to reduce boredom.

Good book to keep dipping into as is "Going Long".

Dr NM - that was me, on the way home from a trip out to Thaxted and Samford. was a nice ride until I turned for home and realised how much the wind had got up.

Are you out on the bike much?

Gone a bit quiet on this thread so thought I'd give it a bounce.

Surely those doing Fink for this must be a couple of weeks in, hows it going? I'm not following Fink just referring to is a bit I've been building base for a few weeks, not as consistently as I'd like.

OC - Great news you've got a place. Looks like training is off to a good start. I'll keep an eye on your blog.

OC - I hope they accept your application. Please do keep us updated on your progress during training and then its going to be one hell or a race report.

My FTP seems to be ok in that it is giving me a hard but completable work out.

I've been taking workouts from the Intermediate Build plan, not sure why I picked it. There are quite a few workouts that include micro bursts (sprints only 15sec long) are these effect?

Have I picked the wrong plan or type of work outs given I'm trying to build up to IM Austria? My plan through he winter is to do a 1-1.5 hours turbo session twice a week as well as 2-3 hours on the road (as long as there isn't ice/snow)

What plans have you used?
