Heart Rate Training

Don't stress too much over your  HR zooming up so quick to start. I have the same thing and was tested at a lab and the doc reassured me that it was just the way my body perceived the need to get up to a fast HR then settle down if needed.
However he did say to stick to the correct zones that they worked out as I did hit MHR but the end of the test. Money well spent but a very hard workout to do whilst wired up and stuff to machines.

What should my pirate name be?

To select a suitable name needs more information from Rhodri27.
Lets have some interesting/quirky info.


Training for a shorter Tri

Sounds good news on the races entered Razor.

I am still  dithering around and not entered anything yet. I feel reluctant to spend money and then not be well enough to complete the event. This last round of bugs has set me back totally to square one again.
I went swimming for 30 minutes last week and that wiped me out although it did seem to help shift the bunged up nose.

I finally got outdoors to do some exercise on Sunday. 40 minutes very gentle bike ride with Mr Steady. Then in the afternoon a 4 mile stroll with friends and dog. Tired afterwards but the cold is still hanging around and at my annual asthma review I was told to not exercise until well and rebooked to see the nurse in 6 weeks.

The only good news is that I have not put any weight on, but that will be due to a frequently disappearing appetite.

Do I continue to prioritse Front Crawl over Breaststroke

I only do around 30 -35 seconds for 25m and think that I have a steady pace, but have managed 3.8km in 1 hour 43 minutes. I only swim once a week at present and not too worried about getting much faster.

Any swimming drills are done much slower as I need to concentrate.

MC, from your description of a cough since the flu, if it has been 4 weeks, then time to visit the GP

I need to decide on races for next year, but think that I ought to do it the right way round and book holiday time first so there are no clashes or mad panics to train.

Having 20 lessons and 4-5 teachers I am not surprised you have not made much progress as each teacher will have their own way.
Just concentrate on one aspect of front crawl and master that before adding another. Eg breathing, or the catch or the kick.
It will finally click the same way as breaststroke has.

Quiet in here at the moment, hope it is because you are all training hard, unlike me fully of snotty and grotty cold germs on top of a stomach bug.

I really ought to get my act together and enter a race or 2 for next year to give me something to aim for. Thinking of a couple of sprint tri's and possibly the Bournemouth pier to pier swim.

Look after yourself MC.

Pier to pier is 1.4 miles so doable, but I have only swum in the sea in a wetsuit a few times and find I get a bit seasick due to the extra bouyancy.

I had a go at this running lark again. Yesterday I went out for 1.5 miles and did 1 min run 2 minutes walk after a warm up. My quads are hurting today but otherwise no problems. Might give it another go next weekend.
