Some call a training thread willy-waving, others use it as a way of logging their training efforts..

Anyway, who cares?

My 2010 started yesterday with a 30k zone 2 bike..all indoors on the turbo, sadly!

On the 1 st I did a 10k
and last night I nailed a hard 7 K

Only the mind sets the limits! I dont mind at all!!!!

Hi to All
after 4 hours sleep and a hangover did my first cross country run ever
the Hangover 5 in worthing , up over the golf course 5 miles

and yesterday 22 mile mountain bike in the frost , with 5 super fit guys and me , I died badly towards the end

for me thats a good start,
2nd season this year want to move up to olympic distance so have entered my home race in worthing in July and I am already bricking it , seems a bloody big jump from sprints

happy new year to all

also entering 2nd season after sprints last year and entered ODs this year..have the same feeling of...sh*t only 6 months to go ..but realistically i know this is more than enough time to get it right...just need to learn to live on less than the 5k calories a day i have been consuming through christmas..

anyway...today x 1 hour turbo......and i am now officially in the Prep 1 phase!

little run this lunchtime, 3.5mi, left my heartrate strap at home so i think somewhere on z2/3 threshold.

trying to make it all about the running this winter, but foot kback has slowed progress somewhat.

maybe we should have an 'what injurys have you got today' thread....

January 1st- 95k solo ride Zone 2- Outdoors
January 5th- 5k solo run -Zone 1/2- Outdoors

Trying to stay in the low zones for first 12 weeks to see what differences it will have on my summer. I normally just nail it everywhere. Also the first time in a while that I am bothering to run train. My natural pace is 8min/miles so trying to get that down now for the races ahead.

25k bike in the garage. Steady. Followed by 20 mins core work.
Need to get Sky pumped into the garage somehow!

get one of those little gizmos that wirelessly beam the the sky to a tv in the garage - provided you have one..

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convice the world that triathlon was easy

It was mostly longish slow runs in Nov & Dec, interrupted by illnes and Christmas but now I'm focusing on swimming

Wed - 500mtrs
Fri - 500mtrs

Goint to try and get in another 500 tomorrow then an hour on the bike.

Some of the best things in life may be free, but the very best comes as three.

Short snowy run on New Year's Day
20k bike ride on Sun (first time out for about 3 weeks)
First session with Ashford Tri Club on Tues - swim training - really friendly bunch of people, great to get some tips on my technique (over 25 yrs since anyone has looked at my stroke) Can't wait to go again and to some other sessions.
5k snowy run on Wed.

Not training I know, but jumped up and down today as very excited to get e-mail from Wiggle today saying that my new - first ever road bike is being dispatched. Guess with the weather at moment it will be more sensible to stick to my trusty MTB; but I might have to try it out round the living room!!!!!
