Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: Yesterday at 22:31

I know that Stump, it was an indulgence having done the Ride London this year.
I have my plans for steadily increasing the distance each week with some cut back weeks along with plenty of new DVDs to ride to on the turbo during the horrid weather of winter.

My aim for next year is to try to take a whole hour off my Outlaw Half time, it is possible by making sure I do not fall off the bike a week before, doing plenty of quality rides and managing to run rather than walk.

My target is now out in the open.

Eurgh to socks that were hiding.

I have been planning my route for the weekend. I will be using the M42 and M6 which I have never driven on before along with the M40 which I have been on as far as Bicester.

Getting excited for the weekend, as I have a small dirty vicar and a sussex charmer to bring along.

Camlo, my older bike was girlie base entry model with 3 front chain rings, loads of choice but never the right one when you need it. I have now progressed to a better big girls bike so it only has 2, hence my having to get the hang of it.

I did my dreadmill session after work and managed to do 3 minutes run and 1 minute walk repeated for 30 mins in total. Progress in the right direction at long last. My ambition of a Xmas 5k is looking a possibility.

I swam yesterday, did a turbo session tonight, so tomorrow will be a little run/walk on the dreadmill at the gym.

The supply of washing up liquid in the work kitchen is very erratic, so I am taking in a small holiday container with some for my own personal use, I have room in my locker along with all the other seemingly essential stuff I shove in there.

I got my new bike sorted out at the LBS, now fits better and set up for turbo use over the winter. Today I did a spinning session with one leg drills, it feels so much better now the bike is correct, although still getting used to only having 2 chain rings at the front.

rpitchfo, that is a good time for 400m swim.

Durhambiker, argh no goggles is even worse than no nose clip, when I forgot mine I ended up buying more just so I could swim and now have a spare set of everything.

Ooh ouch Pete, take care mate, hope the injuries are not too serious.

I did nothing over the weekend, but  intend to swim in the morning and then in the afternoon go for a bike fit for the new bike as I have not got it set up quite right and it is giving me niggling aches and pains.

What your idea for a great race memento?

A supermarket trolley token on a key ring, or a mug, as they are practical. Quirky medal is OK. I have had a jute shopping bag, stone paper weight, buff and bumbag as a momento.

Pete, at least you can do bs, I have to do bs with the leg kick used in Butterfly as if I use the conventional bs leg kick I put my back out and end up visiting the osteopath.

I did a run/walk at the gym last night, 2 minute run 1 minute walk. R hip not too happy afterwards or today so rest day today, which was needed as very tired and slept on the train home even managing to wake up one station before the one required.

Hope peeps have a good weekend, we are down to visit Father in Law tomorrow.

I was asked at work if I had done any exercise last night, replied that I had been on the new bike for a turbo session. Then came the serious question of did it have a basket on the front. I laughed and showed a photo of it to prove it doesn't.
