OK September 2016 I started "training" again after an inconsistent and at times non existing period of training. Hit my head really badly in July this year which stuffed up months of consistent work. Resulting recovery has been frustrating with more 2-3 day bits lost here and there due to a foggy head, and with the requirements of my job, I have to take those sensations seriously. If I was still a Boilermaker I wouldn't mind. So I have found myself trying to get faster and fitter by pushing more, training harder. But this has effected my consistency too. I'm a solid bloke and intensity fries me badly. Has anyone else had to rebuild slowly and had success? I am going back to what got me fit in the first place, basic Endurance and easy training. I have to remove the ego and just get fit. Goal event is Busso Half next May. Cheers
Raced the ultimate, or long course today....beautiful place for a race and great course, worth a trip. Tough bike course though which must scare people away. One of the nicest courses I've done for a while and can recommend.....just need to train for it, unlike me! Hoping this kick starts me back into training now as it was slow and ugly!
Hi Team, Does anyone have any issues with blisters during the run leg of a HIM? I tend to get hot spots and pressure points on the balls of my feet - not blisters as such but quite uncomfortable (not unbearable though). Ironically it tends to be worse if I wear socks as opposed to no socks. I was planning on riding with socks and keeping those socks on for the run for an upcoming HIM. What suggestions do people have? Does anyone go without socks for a HIM? Would a bit of vasoline / body glide under the socks be beneficial or just anyone use tape? Thanks in advance.
astrogirl posted a topic in TriChatI've seen threads on here about what nutrition strategies people adopt. What I'm wondering is - how do you work it out? How do you start? What are the generally accepted options? At the moment, I'm rocking up to long rides with a muesli bar and water. Apparently that doesn't cut it! Edit (to clarify the question...) : Let's say I sign up for Forster ultimate which is in October. When do I need to start working on my race nutrition strategy? And how do I go about it etc etc
