  • nivaghnivagh Posts: 595

    Circuits last night - took it quite easy, then a 10 min run on the treadmill at 15.5, 16.5, 17.5, 18.5 pace for each two and a half minutes.

    Also worked out what was wrong when I went to the gym with my wife while I was off the other week... Their running machines are set in miles, not kilometres - thought I was just struggling with a cold!! [8|]

    A bright a chlorine filled swim this morning - 3.8km straight off in 1:10mins. Anyone else get sore lips from being in the water too long?!?!

    Then had a 45 min spin on the indoor trainer at a steady 144 HR, just below threshold.

    Lovely stuff.

    Got a 25 mile 2up tomorrow so went out to fire the race bike up, in to the wind on the way out managed to keep the pace about 35kph, averaged 48kph on the way back though! 42k in 1:10 I love this bike! Borrowing a set of easton ea90 carbons tomorrow, at 1000 odd I really hope I don't break them!
  • ironkavironkav Posts: 259

  • GGBGGB Posts: 482
    35 mile bike this morning - excellent route with a few hills thrown in - felt good

  • sfullersfuller Posts: 628
    1h 20m on turbo. Going to Nice on Monday for 10 days. plenty of riding up Col de Vence and may even attempt Col De La Madone too - a favourite of Lance's.
  • treefrogtreefrog Posts: 1,242
    Friday : 21kM in 98.14 reasonable effort on a cold wet night - need new shoes

    Saturday : Recovery day - light cycling & massage

  • treefrogtreefrog Posts: 1,242
    Sunday (today) another solo century ride (well 151kM).

    Great cycle in the mountains taking in two tough climbs. I had a 23 on the rear the first climb I used all 23 teeth but on the 2nd I got stuck in and went up it in the 21.

    Flatish most of the way home with a good tail wind, I nailed it averaging over 30kMh. Feeling very strong - bring it on!

  • GGBGGB Posts: 482
    1 hour swim with Tri club tonight ... including doggy paddle drills - allways makes me laugh.

  • nivaghnivagh Posts: 595

    First tri of the season yesterday and really pleased with a top ten finish :-)

    Swimming tonight then a couple of days off I think as I have a sore throat and some physiological testing on Thursday that looks as though it's going to be hell!
  • treefrogtreefrog Posts: 1,242
    Well done Nivagh that's a great result.

    I'm still ploughing on with the training. Tonight it was an interval session on the turbo.

    20min warm up followed by 10X 1min on (flat out - like a lizard drinking!!)/1min off. I pushed myself to vomiting tonight and averaged 50.7kMh for the session.

    Very painful but immensley satisfying afterwards

  • JessterJesster Posts: 482
    Hour long swim mostly drills, five mile run in the pouring rain ('hmmmm, i think it's just a shower' was well clear of the mark)

    Dog was NOT impressed....
  • GGBGGB Posts: 482
    Nice one nivagh .. what were your splits ?

    Did a 4 mile run tonight in the rain - enjoyed it but the legs didn't - right knee keeps giving me gip at the moment.

  • Jack HughesJack Hughes Posts: 1,262
    Rest day yesterday. Knee does haven't that much movement this morning, so scratched the turbo session. Ate banana and cereal instead. Will see what it feels like at lunchtime - will probably go to the gym and do some core/strengthening exercises at lunchtime. Then see how it feels and have a turbo session this evening/or swim/or rest.
  • jacjac Posts: 452
    Saturday was a 2hr swim, bike and run session.

    Sunday 25k easy bike and yesterday rest day.

    Tri club swim tonight.
  • treefrogtreefrog Posts: 1,242
    One hour trail running with some mates - weather crap but scenery great

    Then 10 mile TT organised by local tri clubs, I went quite well despite very poor weather (wind rain cold) and a rather hilly course.

    Felt quite good to use the P3C in anger again.

  • sfullersfuller Posts: 628
    36k ride yesterday - this is 18k uphill with average grad at around 7% then a solid 18k back all downhill.... average 22kph overall but average 55kph on the way back leg!

    25min row last night too - 6217m


    Today going for another ride - same route but going further out, probably going to make it 60km overall. Row again tonight too - ill update this later.

    So the ride ended up being 45k. From the start its up hill till I reach the summit of the Col de Vence... this is about 18km... then carried on for about 4k and then all the way back again.
  • ironkavironkav Posts: 259
    damn! power went in middle of night (storms) alarm clock was reset.... missed my morning training.. have to schedule it in tonight
  • jacjac Posts: 452
    One hour tri club swim last night.

    Great 28k bike today, with 4x40 secs hill reps. Quads were screaming. All good fun.
  • JessterJesster Posts: 482
    1 hour easy bike

    Circuits at lunch

    5k fun run with the US Navy-beat a lot of the men and puffed home in 23.47

    would have gone faster were it not for the jacket potato sitting in my belly. (not a good idea to eat then race but it was a last minute thing)

    Have now had some oreo cookies. Am happy jesster. doo doo doo....
  • GGBGGB Posts: 482
    Was late setting off on my run this evening so decided to do a 3 mile fast, for me, run - completed it in a PB of 21.08 - and was very pleased.

    I think I could have gone faster but went out too hard - mile splits were, 6.40, 7.00 and 7.28 - I was aiming for a 21 minute flat .. 7 min miling but just went out too hard but still a PB :D

    Max HR was 180 and average was 168 - need to work a bit more on my speedwork and need to give up the cigs ;)

  • SwizzlenapSwizzlenap Posts: 160
    Did a 10k this morning in 47 mins which is a best for me to date. Joining a gym tonight so will be starting swimming this weekend. Very excited.
  • jacjac Posts: 452
    Four mile run before work, then a very quick - 250m plus 5 x 50m (10 secs rest) swim - at lunch.

    Hope to get some more swimming in tomorrow. Failing that it will be early Sat morning due to commitments!
  • GGBGGB Posts: 482
    Did a good, for me, swimm session of about 1 hour tonight - pool was reasonably empty :D - managed to get a few 200's in and some 300's and managed a 400 without stopping, which is a first for me :D. I was speaking with someone the other night who has done Tri's and they mentioned about not kicking in the swim - so I tried a 400 with minimal kicking and lasted the distance, have no idea how long it took but at least I managed it :D .. probably did over 2500m tonight.
