Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: Yesterday at 17:26

I went swimming this morning, but am binning the Pilates tonight. The cold is almost in full flow and feel achy and tired.
I looked at the calendar for September, each week I did an extra session, so started at 2 per week and ended on 6, which may have been my downfall. So this week is recovery week.

BBT, wow that was a killer swim session, 1 length of fly is my limit.

Boo to eye infection Maths.

Well done Pete, it sounds a tough course but well worth it.

Razor I am sooo glad you reminded me when Fink starts  but I will be doing my adapted Fink for Outlaw Half and just add in more bike miles ready for Outlaw bike section.

Sorry to hear you DNS Maths but was a wise choice.

I have cycled today, my knees feel sore and I have a tickle in my throat so the cold I have been fending off is obviously make itself known for tomorrow. Grrr.

Glad I did not join you, 15mph average would have killed me. As it was I did a flat 32 miles  with company averaging 13.3mph.

I am pleased to see Mouse and Seren making valid comments which will help me as I am doing the bike leg for a relay team and I will be adapting Fink so that the long rides are longer because I am a slower rider.

Welcome Ultramatic. As Camlo says it is not a case of if, it is when, regarding falling off usually in a fail to unclip moment.

I went to the Masters swim session this morning, goodness me it was hard work. then I went on a recce for a bike ride, luckily in the car and realised that 2 roads were really bad surfaces for miles and not suitable at all.

Sorry, I have just eaten the chocolate, again medicinal.

Need to get my planning head on and sit down and work out a few potential bike rides for the club. It needs to be about 30-35 miles with some hills but not a Surrey Hills fest type thing or if it is too hilly will need to be shorter as it has to be ridden in 2.5 hours.

Then I need to get planning and organising for next week, may get the slow cooker out for Wednesday and Thursday dinner. In which case I need to have the ingredients on Tuesday so it can be got ready and switched on before heading out of the door on Wednesday.

The end of an era has arrived, but it feels odd because I will be doing the same job just in one office all the time and not going here, there and everywhere which I enjoyed. Habits need to be broken, but not so sure about the change to my routine.

I will be doing my own thing, still planning the route but may include going up Coldharbour Lane.

Feeling emotional today. 

Medicinal chocolate has been consumed.

I have another slightly less emotional day to get through tomorrow, but have bought mini cupcakes to take into the office to make things better. It is a smaller office and the staff are really nice like the ones I left today, but have not known them for so long.
