  • Some people do the swim in an hour, but they aren't pirates they cheat and train properly
  • Fair play Sarge you're all systems a go go... Keep looking after that knee! I'm no longer Outlaw bound as OH needs a new van so can't afford it. I am the sickly child - sinusitis. Hopefully back to training tomorrow... Night shift first though. 
    Think aim for a HIM next year! 

  • WIth 150 places left, ive got some jigory pokery too do to get my place sorted ahead of payday. Sorry to hear that mrsD



    Dang paying job expenses our of my own pocket until payday ( ??600 quid i have a better use for this week)



    Off swimming in 5 minutes image
  • Oh Dear.  Swimming is much harder work than I remember.

    I'm not sure pirate Admiral Rosey would agree with you Dave - and his swim is c1hr...

  • I was thinking of Rosey when I wrote that    image

  • image But he does cheat he's faster than anyone else? image

  • oh crap. outlaw closed out early!  Waitlist or Ironman or Henley? image

    You snooze, you loose. 

  • Going back on the turbo to calm down.Even spoke to their office today to get it sorted and expected a call back.

  • The Outlaw thread says there will be a reserve list, as people will inevitably drop out as it gets nearer, so get on the list and start training ... image

  • Indeed - i am no12 on waitlist and could go charity for ??500



    Failing that, ironman or henley.



    Until then, training like its fixed in time....



    40 L1 turbo last nite, need a good run or turbo tonight at l2
  • At #12 - you'll get in.

  • Lard a lot of the people who ae signed out will drop out so don't panic just stick your name on the reserve list. There will be people who I'm afraid will get injured. Still henley looks like a good plan mate. image

  • I'm going to take my Pom poms to Nottingham
  • Talking of injured. Sounds as though I have a calcaneal stress fracture. Fun fun fun! 

    Well done for popping yourself on the waiting list Sarge. Sounds as though you're sustaining the training really well. 

     

  • 3mile run last nite. 40.12. Mostly ran , with a little fast walking to drop the hr. hotel swim tonight and then maybe some stationary bike into a short run



    Need to edge the distance/time up next month, but the base is comming along nicely



    Aiming to swim 200wu200dr r

    400 pace 200dr 200 wd

    Lol - aiming .... Who am i kidding



    Oh and work has me 10 miles from triuk shop in yeovil in 2 weeks time... Must leave plastic cards in the car image. Proper bloke window shopping for all things tri



    And did i mention how nice stafford tri were on my first seasion. Not a snigger or a smirk - mind you, they didnt see me swim image

    Hows everyone doing ?
  • Well done mate for braving the tri club. What did they have you doing? Unfortunately, the joy of tri includes the looks of frustration from the OH as more kit comes thru the door.
    I'm off for my last pt session. Using the injury to encourage myself to swim and cycle more. Start New programmers today, gentle start. Limited running. At least have all winter to get sorted... Have lost 22lb so far though.  

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • Does anyone have any guidance on adjusting a gym stationary bike to effective use in bike session?



    Im thinking the position is a problem being too relaxed with a huge saddle restricting movement and crappy pedal straps?

    yes - get a turbo so you can use your own bike.  gym bikes are generally too crap to get much useful exercise from them.

  • Another thing to pack for next time image
  • Lovely run tonight , 1hr1 4.65 miles : longest ever - couldve been more but the gym wanted to close. image



    Another bogeyman slayed - i ran for over an hour - another 15mins or so givesme a 10k number to whittle away at. Extrapolating out makes a marathon around 5hrs15. Not that i could sustain the pace that long today ..... ( i know, the number is as usefull as a 'nick clegg')



    Bedtime now image
  • Bloody HRT monitor is having a breakdown.  Accurex+ has served me faithfully on, off and on again for many years.  Now, 3 batteries died in 3 days and its proving a pain in the arse.

    monitor straps a re cool - gym kit picks up the ticker nicely.  just the watch receiver playing up.  I have asked IF the polar UK can service the thing ( and how much ).  

    Might mean a garmin acquisition is escalated - no point piddling around and then ending up with 2 devices later. ( I like being able to download and graph the workouts ).

    OK. time for bike - then too bed. Hows everyone doing ?

    A great weekend, with a another 5k running on saturday night - resulting in a new pb of 37:47. However, I really must put a little effort into staying in Z2, and leave the ego elsewhere.

    a wonderful session in the pool this evening, nice coach from tri club has set me on my way with a couple of drills to improve arm action. covered about 1000m - which is more swimming in one night than in the last year.

    Roll on next week.  How is everyone else ?

     

  • See  we said that a Tri Club coach wouldn't eat you !!!

    Messed about at th egym Friday, Saturday set off running down the bridleway near home, gorgeous morning, nice weather was 5 miles from home before I realised, So a great 10 miler doen.

    Looking out of the window this morning I can swim round our close !!!

  • imageimage I was hoping to get a few bike miles in this week but the rains so hard it's making the road's are way a little dodgy. image Oh well just going to have to run instead. imageimage

  • Hotel run machine for me tonight-assuming the gym is open on arrival !
  • Get outside Sgt! That's an order soldier! image

  • sgt your going to find running outdoors hard if you use the treadmill to much with the different amount of effect there is. I'd get outside as many times as you can it will do you a world of good. image image

    Unless of course your hotel is in mossside in which case far does.

  • Durham at 9ish in the wet n wind, with only starlight ti guide me around the hotel grounds and golf course. Sounds like another easy day on the grindstone to fitness image
