Lev_ - stunning stuff! Delighted for you. I've been easing myself into it. As I spent some time on it a few years back I know if I go at it too hard too quickly I get fed up, so the first 4 days have been singles of 1hr, and 45mins x 3. Turns out I seem to be ok on the recumbent bike too, so will use that - this morning was 75mins consisting of 60 on the elliptical and 15 on the bike. Will look to do a bit more later as my first double, and then start introducing some form of efforts next week.
SL - also looking very good. Impressive running!
I hope the physio helped Al_P. Some good training bagged too.
selbs - with you on the sleep issue. I had some massage to loosen up the muscles which were tightening up as a result of the disc, which has removed some of the pain, so maybe worth looking into? Good luck with the run.
Congrats on the win ES You can't do anything about the course.
One of the most frustrating things about the x-training is that the gym I'm using faces out onto a park so I keep seeing runners going past. On the plus side, there is some amusement in the gym with what some people get up to. One guy done the 'whack the speed up, jump on when it's in full flight and see how long you last' (about 5s a go), but then, after 4 of those, stopped the treadmill, jumped off, and started using the back of the treadmill for some convoluted stretch that made it look like he was humping the floor!
