    Good luck with the split training ... it reminds me of what will be in a few weeks time!

    Today is a junk day or " go out and train for the sake of it day and lose more weight whilst you're at it you fat ****! Anyway I did 49.28 trail running at a slow pace - great fun as I got to use my new tril specific shoes ( I love kit and only do the sport because there is so much "necessary" kit to justify). Tomorrow I do do 20kM.

    This month's targets are weightwise sub70kg (pre exercise) and 92min 20km!

    Did the Fleet half marathon today in lousy weather in 1:41, a fraction outside my target of getting inside 1:40 (ideally wanted 1:38) but as it was my first time over the distance and given the week I've had (2 chiro visits due to a really sore lower back and a tummy bug on Tuesday) I'm pleased.

    Being new to the distance I maybe held back a fraction too much in the first half. I told myself to be cautious until the hour mark and then press on a bit depending on how I felt and I was feeling good until 10 miles, the last 3 were tough though so useful to know.

    I was faster than younger guys wearing running club vests so that made me feel good!

    Strictly speaking this doesn't belong in the "training" thread but I view these races as part of my training schedule.

    woohoo! i can finally start training after 4 weeks of being out with a cold and then a chest infestion. did 2 hours on the bike on saturday, back to proper training tomorrow
  • a4asha4ash Posts: 29
    fri - 2k swim

    sat - 1hr gym session

    sun - 2 hr off rd mountain bike

    unfortunately crashed big time, damaged leg (hopefully just grazed and bruised), cut head and arm but worst thing, broke little finger and have to have 2 strapped together, so prob now no swimming or bike for a few weeks?

    on the positive side, my running will surely improve as i wont be able to do anything else

    tonight - rest

    tomorrow - rest

    nice one! that was quick!!

    now back to training talk!

    I haven't posted on this subject yet so as I'm here!

    today I went for a swim at 6am 2200m in total, won't go into detail of what drills I done etc...

    then at 11:00 I went for a run, doing my lactate threshold interval session that lasted 45mins...

    Then at 1:30 I went out on bike (its so cold) doing same as run (working on improving lactate threshold, doing intervals)

    and for a 15 minute run after that, to work on running of the bike!

    now rest....till the next day[&:]

    by the way I do shift work and today is my day off incase you thought I done that in my lunch break and stuff[&:][&:]

    Um not quite as hardcore as scott298 i'm afraid to say but i did just run the farthest I have run and easily too! Did 5 and half miles (8.85km) in under 45 minutes. pretty chuffed as could have easliy uped the pace but was just trying to do a long steady run. [:)]

  • LuckyLucky Posts: 137
    Hour long tempo run this morning, got a lunch time swim planned at the moment (and then beer and curry night....)
  • jon_gjon_g Posts: 318
    Brick session this morning before work, 45 minutes zone 2 on the bike followed by 15 minute run. was hard work getting up this morning!

    10K Cross Country Race for me today. Lovely and muddy in parts, great fun. A bit of variation in the training program always helps.[:)]
  • bennybenny Posts: 1,314
    yesterday evening did a max heart rate running test. Stranded on 189. Last year it was 184.

    Really suffered, but needed to be done[>:].

    easy swim today; 1 mile straight.

  • bennybenny Posts: 1,314
    Bummer,a4ash, just read about your stunt biking.

    Get better soon[X(].
  • sfullersfuller Posts: 628
    nice 1 hour swim, making good gains but struggling to get used to breathing on opposite side.... trying to train for both!!!
  • lowther76lowther76 Posts: 74
