I've blogged a few thoughts about where I am with IM training ... http://www.runwalkcrawl.com/step-back/
Great training SD!
Mountain biking is excellent for crap days I managed a swim today and then ignored the gym and turbo session, was a tad tired and still have a night shift to get through so feel a little better for itStill managed a sub 7 400m TT and the end of an hours swim tho
Meldy, great swimming, 7 minutes is a great time!
Swam yesterday (but not as fast as Meldy), short brick today - 45 min bike & 20 min run.
Pay day tomorrow so I'm going to treat myself to a foam roller. Although I'm thinking 'treat' may not be the case.
run done for me, just 3 miles, and have also been to the physio who is *very* pleased with progress on my foot still have to keep to short runs, but short run is better than no run in my book
kettlebells class later, and I'm moving up to heaver weights so won't be able to move tomorrow, which fortunately is a rest day
Good stuff, fraggle!
Nice hour's run today through woods and along canal. NEWT swim later.
You take it easy with those weights Frags!I am on a quick turnaround at work so very little sleep and back at a desk already ...Looking forwards to the Tri show on Friday, may need to keep the bank cards locked away!

I hate my roller. Best thing I ever bought, though markedly the least exciting and it completely lacks any carbon .
Could do with it now for the ITB. Wine bottle it is then!
Good man - empty the bottle and you won't feel the ITB
Just looked and next week is week 1 of my IMCH training plan

How long it the plan Will?
21 weeks .... well its a 20 week plan with a down week when I'm on holiday at easter
I though it seemed quite intense for week 1, but as its a 20 week plan, have you followd 20 weeks before, how do they compare with the 30 week plans (fink)?
I don't like Fink ... I always do 20 weeks I normally average 10(ish) hours per week training for a few weeks prior to the plan, have a week or 2 off then start the plan.
I base my plan on the ones on BeginnerTriathlete, but have to heavily modify it due to my lifestyle.
My PB was Regensburg 2011 when i Managed to get (reasonably) close to what i planned
2.5km swim this morning in 52 minutes with a 400m time trial at the end in 7:47.
Need to beat Meldys sub 7......
you keep this speed work up Meldy.....it'll just give me a wheel to aim for on the outskirts of PdC!
Well done sossige . swimming that is, not eating skittles
It can be done
I must get back in the pool at some point. Got carried away with duathlons and tapering. Next Monday perhaps...
I reckon the key to overtaking Melday at IM is a speedy T1
For this year's IM, I thought perhaps I was ready to jump to a more serious training program after using a modified "just finish" type program for the last 2 years. So I decided to give the Fink Intermediate a go. I've changed my mind. I'm 25 weeks away from IM #3 and already feeling time crunched and a bit overwhelmed. Maybe it evens out later but I can't handle being that far away from my big race and doing 2 hours of training on a Tuesday.
I've created a rudimentary Excel sheet with both the Just Finish and Intermediate programs side by side and will be using some combination of the two over the next 24 weeks. I'm afraid that if I'm already feeling frazzled, I'll be absolutely cooked by the middle of the summer and will end up hating triathlon.
