Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: Yesterday at 14:59

Mrs Digger, the ride was eventful. Completed it in just under 7 hours moving time. One unclip fail and fall off, resulting in a sore hand and a few bruises. Then about 20 miles from the end of 75 the left cleat would not engage so had 2 big hills up and one very long fast one down to do with only one fully engaged shoe, scary and ended up walking up the hills.

Day off work to recover and go buy holiday clothes plus get new cleats.

Usual Sunday bike ride but today I managed to have a "think I clipped in, oh no OUCH"  the pedal swung round and hit me on the inner ankle bone. Even had a repeat performance about 10 mintues later.

Need to be in one piece for next weekend when I do my first really long ride in training 70 miles ready for RIde London.

MC you did well getting some training in, you need a break from marking exam papers.

Well done to everyone who did anything.

I did 2 rides this weekend. the first one was a Dustboy and fellow pirates ride, met the famous or is it infamous Barlos and Kanga, it was undulating and just under 30 miles, dragged Mr Steady along and it did not break him but he was worn out. Nice chips afterwards just before the rain.
Then this morning was a soggy affair with the cycle club, 2 bailed out on route to go home to save having to cycle back out from the start as they were almost going past their homes, don't blame them at all. I ended up completing 37 miles and hosed down the bike and self when I got home as covered in dirt. My hands were all wrinkly like you get from being in the bath too long it was so wet.

I carry a repair kit, 2 inner tubes, tyre levers, multi tool and pair of latex gloves to stop me getting filthy hands and a mini pump. Only had to use it once and then an old bloke stopped and helped get the tyre back on for me. Like you Buttercup I have a husband who is Mr practical and mechanical.

Failed to get out on the bike tonight, will see if I can redeem myself with a ride tomorrow. Sunday is unity ride with the club which is always a social thing.

Hello and welcome Tracey.

Mrs L, I think you have a better name now.

I did 30 minutes of x training yesterday, tonight it is going food shopping night so light weight training.

Weather forecast looks to be improving for the weekend,  Yay.

Great result on the Rock n Roll half Mrs L, think my PB for a half was 2:21 or thereabouts.

MC, sorry to hear you have had a worrying time with mum and dad. The oldies do tend to not want to make a fuss or downplay the seriousness of the situation. Thank goodness for half term and you being so close.

I did 40 miles yesterday, 25 with the club so a much more sedate 12.4mph pace and I was ride co-ordinator as well, which in reality means I have a piece of paper with names and phone numbers of those I am with and used someone else to navigate the ride round some very pretty Surrey villages without too many hills as we had a beginner join us.

Then went round to Dad's to help build a garden seat.

Great report Mrs L. I must admit that I tend to end up painting my toe nails the day before a race.

I went out for a bike ride this morning. Just over 24 miles on a flat route (less than 1000ft of climbing), with an amazing average of 13.8mph, it was just over 14 at one point but the last 3 miles seemed to be into a headwind and I was getting tired so it dropped down a bit.

Good luck all,
I can't make it up there to support this year, but I have unfinished business with Outlaw Half. 1 out of 3 attempts successful, next one I want to do really well and have more than 15 minutes left before final cut off.
