  • Hi Plum,

    what is turbo

  • Plum - for the newbies amongst us, please could we have a few more details.  I guess you accrue points for training (surely against the Pirate Ethos image), but is there anything else we should know?
  • whats a Plum?
  • Seems simple enough... Can I have part points for swims under 400m... Considering I haven't been to a pool in 2 years now!.. Or will I have to become imaginative with my training log?
  • ask away.........

    I thought it was pretty simple even for Schminkees but here we go.  image

    you get a point for every mile you run, every 400metres you swim or every three miles you cycle, added in this year after consultation and nagging you can have points for mileage/time on the turbo as well so....

    if on Monday you get up and swim 2k then do a 5 mile run then a 20 mile bike ride you get  


    5pts for the swim (400 x 5 = 2000) 
    5 pts for the 5 mile run
    6 pts for the 20 mile bike...... No you cant have 6-666, if you want 7 pts do the extra mile FFS  image

    So for Monday you get 5 +5 +6 =16 points......

    If you do the mileage on the turbo you get the same point for every three miles but as some of us cheapskates dont have a thingy for measuring turbo mileage (is is my birthday in January) you get a point for every 15 mins you spend sweating your cods off

  • The winner will as usual be K9 unless an arm drops off so the race is on for second......image
  • Youre not seriously telling me K9 does more training than KK!

  • and how do you know that I wont win image
  • If you do Barlos, I promise to hold down the woman of your choice for you to have your evil way with .........

    You took the words right out of my mouth there, Plum
  • "lots" is a bit of an understatement dear.......

    A migrating Pacific salmon would be a few points behind you

    image

  • Can I have triple points for 25m swimbles coz I am mega-sh1te? image
  • nope........ just do lots of them
  • i have decided to taper today so I'll do my long run tomorrow......might even get in the lead until K9 overtakes as usual......

    (ok, i actually had too much red wine last night and caught the tube in instead of running into work.......)

    Schmunkie - its just another training thread really, where we play chase the K9.......   just join in and join the 'fun' ! 

    Don't be intimidated by the numbers that other post because

    • k9 is half (dog) fish?? and has to swim 5k every day to stay alive
    • some people are exercising way to much at the moment, and are heading for burnout (err thats me i think)
    • everyone has different targets / time available so the only numbers that matter are your own..... (sounds very worthy that  image)
    • some of us lie....... image  (ok we don't really).

    I can only dream image

  • and whatever Plum says...............I use fractions of points.............if I swim 100m then thats .25 points.if I run .4 of a mile then that is .4 of a point....................I don't get enough points to miss those little fractionsimage

    right off to plan a 100 mile bike ride for tomorrowimage at 1 am to get to the fronmt of the board for a few minutesimage

  • and my excuse ofr small totals is that I'm only running at the momentimage
  • I'm with Seren, I need all the fractions I can get .  And my excuse for small totals is that I'm inherently lazy image

    Planning on starting the new year with a parkrun tomorrow and a 10 miler on Sunday.   Ony time will tell if I actually achieve both.image

  • nothing for the treadmill, are you kidding me?????? Good job the running tights still have the gusset in them!!!
  • Treadie running is for Gaylords, you can always run outside, you just need spikes occasionally   image
  • Plummy Dahling - are there any points up for grabs from spinning classes?  Are they exempt or treated the same as turbo/bike (altho no method for measuring distance!) Maybe points per class?

    Am i the only sad bugger doing something today..??
    afternoon run - cut short as darkness fell on the forrest...... (I struggled getting up this morning)

  • Am i the only sad bugger doing something today..??

    No, I went out for a little bimble this morning

    orangecannon - 9
    Trickster - 4

  • orangecannon - 9
    Trickster - 4
    Trogs - 3.1

    Nope, you're not alone.  

    Parkrun'd this morning achieving a PW; looking at it in a more positive light, I've not run this for over a year so it's a SB image.  Doesn't bode well for the 10 miler on Sunday though image

    Edit for cross post
