Although, I was putting a play list together the other day for a longrun and realised that most of the bands had at least one memeber who was now dead (from 'natural' causes not ODs)...... and I'd seen most of them play live! Sudden realisation I was getting old!!
Will, some great choices there. Anarchy ... one of the best songs ever. And Dury was a genius, read a biog of him recently.
Though I never train to music, interesting to hear what everyone else does. If I'm out running I love the silence & sounds of nature.
Will, like the playlist although I am not sure I would class all of those bands as punk
I never take music out running - it just annoys me and I like to be aware of what is going on around me, both to appreciate nature as well as the security aspect of knowing if someone is coming up behind me
Always run with music during training, but never in a race....that's just rude!! And recently I've stopped listening to music when I ride..... apparently that's dangerous or something (but then I only wear helmet when its cold!)
I never listen to music whilst training outdoors, but usually listen to something when I'm stuck in the gym. My dissertation at university next year is actually about the effects of music on athletic performance, looking forward to researching the area and doing some tests!
Will I find that listening to Bieber makes us all faster?
When i was member of a gym maybe 8, 9 years ago I do recall the gents used to run and cycle faster when Can't Get You Outta My Head came on.
Probably more to do with the video...
Audio books are good for realy long runs when on your own
This is going to sound mighty strange but today was I think my first real swim workout ever. Yes, that's after 3+ years of doing this. Yes, that's after 2 Ironmans.
It was my 3rd or 4th session in a group swim training group and I recall a comment I made last week to the coach (who's also been working with me separately since before Christmas), "Why do we get so much rest time in-between 25s, for example? I don't need that much rest time." She replies, "Then you aren't working hard enough on the given distance." So today, after about 1200 yards of various things, she has us do 20x25, leaving on 30 seconds.
This was new to me, and I was told that we would start a 25 every 30 seconds. I think to myself, "Hmm, I can do 25 yards in about 25-26 seconds normally so shouldn't be a problem." Well, by about the 6th or 7th of the 25s, I was begging for a little rest. I made all 20 but holy crap, I was wrecked. Obviously, it's going to make me a better swimmer and I now know how to better push myself.
Mathschick .. I thought exactly the same,ace soundtrack Will but not what I would call punk, love The Ramones Yanky that sounds like a damn good swim session!I swam today as well, just the hour and a mixtures of 400's on drills and pace and anything else I could think of!Off to Devon for the Easter break tomorrow but will look in when I can, planning on some nice bike rides hopefully !!
You struggled with cramp when you did the 6k Will, time to relook at the plan ?
Method my arse Willum
I'm obviously nowhere near as old as you lot. Never heard of anyone on the playlist.
I have ear ache. Swimming related I'm guessing. Any suggestions?
I'm like dumbo in the water....
Andy, look after yourself, a cold will give you enforced rest. Hope you shake it soon. Been to physio about the calf?
IY, good swimming mate! I'm loving the tri club swim sessions now, really looking forward to open water swimming in May (once we've hacked a hole in the ice).
WW ... 8k. Respect.
Hi and welcom Runnin' Free
It sounds like you have a good base, but what is your fitness level like at the moment?
The first thong i wold say is have a look at a gouod miidle distancs paln, something like this one ..
Its a 20 week plan and you only have 8 ... so look to se if you can adapt it to your needs , so you may need to do somethin like week 6,8,10 then 12 onwards sort of thing
Then I would aim to get in som olpen water training in as soon as sencible ... probably going to be begining of may looking at the long range forcast
Hi runnin' free. "... the cold, dark, deep, freezing aspect slightly worries me!!!!" You can't possibly be any more scared than me, so if I can manage OW swimming, you can too! Get yourself along to a group session, where you'll be looked after, and you'll be fine.
I was in the pool yesterday for the first time in a fortnight, and it showed! Doing a 90 min long, steady swim tomorrow so we'll see how that goes. My knackered shoulder isn't very happy, so I'm torturing it with some tennis ball massage.
Just an intervals run and some stretching befor work for me today.
Got my long drive home this afternoon
