  • 2 hours turbo done yesterday. Glad the ironman's not done on one as I would definitely fail.

    I guess this weeks going to turn into a swimming one. Don't think it's safe enough to run but might try.

  • 12 mile Z2 run done in the snow yesterday.  took 1h 50min but was a bit hard going at times.  was planning to swim this morning but roads not clear yet so am going to take a rest day instead and try and fit it in later in the week.

  • Good news I caved and ordered som yaktrax pro, so in 3-5 business days I can predict there will be no snow or ice left near Norwich. image

    At least it means that either way I will be able to run by the end of the week.

    Tried out my new Garmin Edge 810 on the Turbo yesterday, fab bit of kit very pleased although Heart Rate monitor needs some tweking as it was either way too low or way to high! Loved raing my virtual partner got me shifting a bit more than I would have otherwise and my average HR worked out in Z2 so I'm calling it good.

    Aiming for a full weeks traning this week althogh I can turbo instead of run until the snow goes or yaktrax arrive.

  • arms hurt today swimming....must have been the snow shovelling

     

    1 hr swim, sauna, yoga. 45 min turbo.. 15 min run.now time

    If I can't get out on the bike soon i am going to go mad..........not only swim sessions to endure inside but now bike sessionsimage

  • 1 hour swim on a non swim day. Makes me feel goodimage

    Well until I read your post above serenimage

    I did do 5 mins in the sauna and 1min of that doing yoga!! Can't be bothered to do more. Swimming makes me so tiredimage

    Am working away and didn't bring training plan. Could someone tell me what fink prescribed for week 7 of competitve please. Tues to Friday just running and cycling required.



    Am going to concentrate on swimming as missed both sessions last week and there is nice pool in hotel but want to at least match the other sessions.



    Thanks

    Thank you ironcat. It won't happen again. image
  • have it in paper, have it on kindle ( iKindle at any rate ), have it as screen captures , wrote it on A4, 

    still not making me do the sodding work though....image 

  • i might be stating the obvious but why dont you use your phone camera and photograph the section - its not ideal but if you travel a bit at least youll  always have it 

     

  • H0NKH0NK ✭✭✭
    I like that idea DK. I normally have it with me on laptop but problems with hire car meant travel by train, so I lightened the load
  • and to quote a better man than me, 'whats fun got to do with it' ?

     

  • Swam yesterday morning turbo in the evening - now got a sodding cold, suppose its better to have it now as the weather is carp.  Have spinning tonight,

    For an entire 7 months that never occured to me....but I did that with the running program I was following back in Oct.

  • Had a very realistic and very odd dream last night about doing Outlaw. Apparently the run is a mountain marathon.

  • Ooh I think that was a nightmare Nurseimage

    Tired Legs - I get a cold every time I go swimming

  • That's how I know it was a dream SS - the run was a breeze!

  • Good news, yesterdays shopping worked and the snow is melting.

    Turbo tonight , swimming tomorrow and I will be a bear back on track image

  • more snow.just managed to get son the 5 miles to school for exam and bring him back..now what training to attempt

  • 'tea making' Seren ?

  • I never ever make tea or coffee........I want to train...I want to get out on the bike........maybe should just go back to bedimage
