Cracking parkrunning from the OOs.

That's an interesting choice of marathon Gul. Off-road-ish and undulating. Looks fun!

Great to hear you are in the shape to start to fight in a race Leslie. That's a good sign.

Lots of swim and bike in the last two days here and managed 75mins off road running this morning which felt sluggish but ok. Bike race tomorrow (Cumbria Cracker) which should be a fun burn up if I can shake some life into the legs.

Suitably bonkers BB!

Good job Lorenzo didn't open the sweepstake with 100miles!

Just popped in to wish BB good luck for tomorrow

I had to reset my phone yesterday from a backup from Xmas which seems to have resulted in an unseasonable double post.

Very nice PMJ

Still ill here but after a 3 day layoff it was long turbo (3hrs) yesterday followed by a 10min run to try to sweat it out.
Swim set this morning followed by 30min turbo then 1 hr run. HR about 20bpm higher than normal so still not right but improving.

Tube strike is planned for VLM day apparently. What joy! (I'm sure they'll sort something before then)

Perfect warm weather camp training GM. Jealous.

Enjoy the Grim tomorrow GD

Gul, hand paddles are a training tool to improve hand entry and pull technique and also build strength (more resistance in the water). They are actually allowed as aids in Swimrun races too (and pretty much everyone uses them) so if I can get used to swimming long distances with them without anything going pop there's a big benefit in the swim stages.

50miles per week - I've never been anywhere near that consistently

Sucky news on the stress fracture Minni. Hope it's not too long before you are back. Biomechanical issue or were you just over enthusiastic with your volume?

Weather is rubbish - I have new pedals and shoes for my good bike and have been confined to turbo-ing. Well done to those getting out and about.

Picking the volume up a bit here and swam with paddles for the first time in ages - lots more of that to come to build swim strength for OtillO
Still feeling rough #snotmachine
