Little brick session this morning, turbo and run. Really enjoying the mid week stuff now that I've got the hang of the training early thing. I really REALLY have to do something about my lack of swim motivation though. Still only swimming twice a week and then it's really quite pathetic. It's hard to make myself do something I'm really rubbish at lol! I will have to use bribery. 3 swims a week for the next month and I'll buy myself something nice.... That should do it!
2 pathetic swims a week is a good week for me. I see little chance of me moving it up to 3. At the moment its one 20-30 minute lunchtime swim (which sometimes get missed if work dictates otherwise) and 1 1hr tri club swim (which includes drills, explanation of the session etc so solid swimming probably 40 mins at best?) The tri club swim is good and structured but distance is way down on Fink or the like - sub 2k in total.
Can I join you and Wild Will at the back please.
I'm with you Darkness - 1 structured tri club swim pw and if I get out of bed Monday morning 1 other........
So I'll be seeing you, WW and Hope at the back only slight problem being that the swim is supposedly my "strongest" (= least weak) discipline
Well RB that's fantastic news because ignoring swimming seems to be my strongest discipline at the moment!
I'm having to re jig this weekends training around the kids. I'm quite looking forward to doing my long bike on a Friday for a change. I'm hoping I can take the weather by surprise and have a nice day in the sunshine!!
Darkness, I'll save you a spot.
Slim it may be as simple as some stretches or rolling around on a tennis ball. It might not be life threatening.
Today is my rest day. I shall be taking full advantage and going to bed soon.
managed a hard set of intervals last night, cycled pre dawn today and will swim at lunch. Team TT tomorrow which may be hilarious as we have never ridden together, have no tactics and will probably all end up in different places.
Seeing my physio keeps me going.... she's gorgious

Hmmm,Sore throat, headache, temperature and a chest cough for me...Had a day off yesterday - Scrapped the planned 5 hr ride and long run today
Could be The Plague. If you die by the weekend, can I have your shiny bike, please?
A few creaks and tweaks creeping in aren't there? And that's before DD reports on the inevitable carnage resulting from his Team TT in the desert. Still only doing low intensity stuff here. Couple of nice, short sessions over the last two days and looking forward to a nice run at lunch today.
Look after yourselves!

I was just wondering (ie fretting cos I've had a few bad rides the last few weekends), what are people up to for long rides at the moment please, timewise? I know it's wrong to compare really but would just like to get a bit of a feel.Thank you please

Spring is apparently planned for this weekend
Cake I am not sure the weather makes much difference on Grizzly. Its bloody hard either way.
Have fun and good running!!
It was far to f***ing hot pity because it was doing aright for my own levels untill about mile 16 where the wheels started to come off. Won't have been worried but meant I missed a few very lovely people at the fineshed end.
Mrs SA if it comes to it you can have a piggyback for the run course if you want?
Woo hoo Max, delighted to hear the mojo is on its way back.
10 mile run before work for me today at an average pace of 7 min 35. Was meant to be 12 miles but I pratted about too long getting out of the house this morning and had to cut it short and run faster!
Happy enough. Rest day tomorrow as I am away with work (Friday is my normal long run day so happy to have got it in early).
