DanA - impressive view and running !
DrDave - happy birthday. Looks like you paced the BAC session well. Staying healthy and fit is indeed what you need to aim for, that means making the easy days easy as well as the hard (BAC days) hard. Make sure you dont spend toomuch time in the grey area in the middle, and make the easy easy !
Padams - hope you get running again soon. The swim coach said I have no catch and pull on one side. So I need to learn to swim bi-laterally in training to balance me up and make the non-working side work. He has given me doggy paddle and one armed drills. So each lunchtime this week has been 200m one armed, 200m doggy paddle both in 50m sections, then 1.6km of bi-lateral broken down into 50m sections with a few seconds rest (calm down) in between each. In a race I can revert to breathing every two, but should have two working sides by then ! Simples ! He told me to swim bi-laterally as much as I can, so I'm going the whole hog.........any drinking loads of pool water.
Hoping to get my legs to run a few miles in the morning as then I'm going surfing/fishing for a week and wont run again until the following weekend which would mean two weeks of no running, so any benefits of doing the 10M trail race will be long lost by then.
