Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: 06/12/2016 at 10:58

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.

I am beginning to see results, but being a woman of a certain age, LCHF definitely effects female hormones. It can be quite vary lots from full on hormonal surge to subtle but still noticeable and in a good way which is great. I listened to the podcast mentioned a week or so ago, very interesting even if they did not have much about menopausal issues.

Good to hear from you Cake.

I walked from the station to work and back again, no cheating and hopping on a bus, so  I must be getter better and thinking about doing the pier to pier swim at Bournemouth in the summer, just need to convince Mr Steady that it is a sensible idea and is possible given all the projects that need doing around the house.

Is everyone ill? I have been.
Today was the first day of any exercise for what feels likes weeks and weeks. One hour very gently MTB ride with Mr Steady.

Trying to tweak my diet in the hope of weight loss but all it seems to have done is give me indigestion at night.
