    At last - got over my 1500m swim fears and managed it last night in O/W - did a respectable time too of 32mins - yihaaaaa! Can now finally consider doing a OD - & was persuaded to change my last tri to just that - thanks Pat!! Completed a lovely evening with a few beers by the lake - perfect training me thinks!!

    Last night - Run session...couple of miles run then sprint splits...how bloody hot was it...ended up a very nice shade of purple and pushed the HR monitor off the scale....had to walk my return legs to get the HR rate down again in time to turn and sprint....thankfully only once a week...

    Swim this morning in a nice cold pool where I was the only person in it Haven't done any swimming in about two weeks due to Glasto and other stuff and have certainly fallen back a bit. I've only been swimming two months ish so need to get back to regular sessions.

    Run tonight and I imagine it's going to get rather hot. Prob do a 10 - 12 k at a quick pace.
  • Just done a 3.8k swim. I took 8 mins off my p.b. Took 1hr 12 mins, I was really shaky when i got out the pool but felt great.

    Away for the weekend so I may try and sneak in a little run.

    18 mile commute yesterday then 5k fartlek.. Man it was hot on the ride back home! Heavy legs today so thankfully it's rest day

    Wow! Slept for 9 hours... that's the longest I've been able to sleep for years. Didn't wake up til 8:30 - usually it is 6 when I get up.

    More rest. Will go to the gym to watch the missus and the tennis.
    Lots of elevation.
    The swelling is going down a bit now - and the big bandages should come off tomorrow, so then I should be able to see what I've got.

    Might be up to cleaning the bikes a bit.

    Half hour swim in the morning concentrating on TI balance drills then a few lenghts paying attention to form. Finally felt like I was actually swimming on some of them rather than the usual controlled drowning.
    Then a 40k bike ride to Richmond Park followed by a 10k run.

    Whoo Hoo I did a mini triathlon today Now happily sat on the sofa watching Le Tour.

    zilch today after a rather large session last night that only started out as a school fun evening!
  • Jack HughesJack Hughes Posts: 1,262
    I did the exercises I was supposed to do - Lift the leg. Stretch the toes (to stretch the calf muscles). Slide the foot on the floor/bed towards you, flexing the knee a bit.

    But this was boring... so I went with the dog and missus for a walk - I'll turn back after 250m I promised - ended up doing 4 miles. Ho hum.

    Felt really tired afterwards - strange that - so snoozed in front of the Tour de France coverage. Dreamt that Wiggo had come third.

    70K on the bike in 3 hours around the beautiful Vale of Pewsey whilst speccing out the Pewsey triathlon bike course that I am marshalling on

    http://www.janet-whiting.com/downloads/ ... athlon.doc

    (don't worry - the course is 27K. But I cycled there and back again from home

    20km on the bike...avoiding the downpours...
  • chapperschappers Posts: 97
    Sat morning was 2250m ow swim. The lake was 26deg and the guys mentioned the race ruling that if the water is over 23deg, wetsuits could be banned so tried swimming in tri suit in case as I have a race next sat. Was a bit wierd but ok.

    Today was a brick. 1hr30m on turbo - in big ring, 2mins in each gear, low to high then back up (did this twice). Then 10k in 40:15. Practiced race nutrition for next weekend, including chugging a smart gel 5mins before getting off the bike which seemed to reduce heaviness in the legs.

    Currently eating my way through contents of the fridge

    EArly morning swim at LL with Scotty and Jellybaby...1500m in 34 (but had to spot and zig zagged all over the place!) - then 10k run when home..hard hard hard today!! Then slobbed on the sofa watching the tennis all afternoon - a good excuse to just do nothing!!

    yesterday i did a nice 45 mins in the pool, 2*400m at threshold 600m at slow pace and some drills thrown in.
    Today 25k bike ride this morning (1h3mins) including some hill reps (4) and some 'sprints' it was almost like a fartlek run, but on a bike if that makes sense? then a nice 11mile run this evening in 1h30:14 seconds. very negative split, av pace 8:16 - and av HR 155 given that there were hills thorwn in the first 5 miles it was very good.

    OW session in a very warm lake, in the rain
  • GGBGGB Posts: 482
    Still no running due to bad back - Physio tomorrow

    So - bike 15 miles - the 2nd half of the bike was rather wet ... bloody typical but good practise I suppose
  • I had my first go on the rollers I bought last week (Elite Ghibli Parabolic Rollers). Pretty scary stuff!

    But within 10 min I was using the clips and staying up right, within 30 min I was playing with different speeds and gears (which don't make a difference).

    After 40 minutes I was mentally tired from concentrating so much! I think I'm going to enjoy them though.
