Training for a shorter Tri

I have had another go at this running lark. A walk/run for 30 minutes which was enough, I think I need to repeat this some more or the HM part of Outlaw Half may take a long time.

Going to do a bike commute into work tomorrow but plan on catching the train home.

Gulping for air

A vicious circle has begun.  Anxiety created because it happened before, breathing goes to pot, which creates more anxiety.

Screampillar is right.

I had no belief that I could run faster after my asthma diagnosis, until I went to a track session and tried running fast in a safe environment that meant if the worst happened that there were people around and no more than a few hundred metres from help. The lungs hurt from fast deep breathing but breathing was possible, I had to regain fitness.

The paper bag is because you were/are hyperventilating, often caused by anxiety.

Try going for a very slow run. You may have tried going out at your usual speed but being post half marathon your body may have still been tired or possibly picked up a virus. Add in that  you have now formed a habit. a very slow run that is almost walking pace will not need a huge amount of air and get you back into a healthy habit.

Pete, I always go to the end of the results and work back to find my name. Either at the end or within 6 places is quite usual for my standard.

I got out on the bike again today. I thought a little ride with the club would be gentle. So I turn up and go with the slowest group of 7 others, we ended up going up the biggest hill in Surrey and going up and down some of the hills that organisers just love to put into sportives, so 27 miles later and over 2,000ft of climbing later, my legs are knackered.

I have totalled my training for the week and this week hits the jackpot. 114 miles, mostly cycled and over 12 hours.

Pete, think they mean +4 not -4. You should be chilly but not frozen.

40 miles on the bike today with company of Pirate Trogs.

Good luck for the swimathon MC.

Pete, noooooo, that weather sounds awful for a race.

I did the commute to and from work by bike, so tired but happy to have done loads of training without having to sacrifice much time. Will be having an early night as I got up at 4.30 this morning.

Mrs D I also like CW's Ride harder sessions, remember " never give up".
