What training did you do today...

Love that. I did a hard 1600m TT a couple weeks ago and had to pull over on the way home because I felt light headed & nauseous. I suppose that means I went close to 100%.

A bit disappointed though, as my pulse was only at 97% for the last 6 minutes. :)

 

Respect 👍

 

What was the split?

Around 26min. Had hoped to go faster, but obviously wasn't going to that afternoon. Still my fastest old-fart OWS of that distance, but I don't count the 17 minute 1500m swim they had at the Bribie Tri. Current was a bit fast that day. ;)

Early start again. The moon was just setting as I headed out in the dam, so tomorrow should be nice.

2.3km, with 2 x 500m surges in 8:30 & 8:02

ooooooh!

 

I might head out for a real early one. Pity I don't have a waterproof camera. A shot of the eclipse reflected off the lake would be awesome.

Swim splits at Bribie don't count for anything except navigation skills :)

 

regards the TT I'll lend you my patent pending "Perkometer"

  • If you don't feel like throwing up -> too soft
  • If you actually throw up during the interval/immediately on finishing -> to hard
  • If you feel like you might perk but don't -> you've nailed it :)

 I can't be bothered with daily updates but this week has gone O/K.

Made it to all my sessions :) 

  • 4 * swim (2.5, 3.5, 2.5, 3.5) total 12 km
  • 4 * cycle (42, 40, 42, 110) total 234 km
  • 4 * run (8, 12,10,15) total 45km

all different courses / set combinations so I'm satisfied, with 7 weeks to go to OD WTCs

It looked absolutely awesome from out in the middle of the dam. It was partly in shadow, but still white when I left the beach, but by the time I got out to the middle of the dam it had faded to its eerie red colour. The one thing I'd forgotten all about was how dark it was going to be without either moon or sun.

Oh well, I found the buoy, and then the beach again.

I tried to take a photo, but treading water & shivering makes it hard to take a long exposure shot. :)GOPR0284.thumb.JPG.70978d905ba1439aa9c69ae4f92107f8.JPG

My view of the moon was cloudy. Not red when it poked its face out. Cool to see how many people were along the coast having a beer or a Thermos of coffee and watching it. 

 

10km run along the coast. Few rabbits @KieranR that asked where you were 😂👍👍

 

Basic Endurance rpe. Ankle felt GREAT

Does the program start tomorrow?

Stick to it. Provide all the feedback so MJK can tweek it to make sure you get to Busso in the best possible shape. Lucky you mentioned earlier that your engine is a diesel. You'll need it to carry all of us across that line.

No I have a self prescribed unloading week this week coming. Still everyday just less volume. 15hrs this week just gone. Biggest in 6 months. 

 

Yeah I will do my best ex ✌️

Friday - Gym and Treadmill - 2x1600 4x800 floating between 3:19-3:25 pace.  Wasn't with it.  

Saturday - Early run 1:58 (28.1km to be exact).  Use to be the person who would run the extra 2mins.  

Then work.  Rode in afternoon to Mt Dandenong.  Nice Arvo (around 75km trip) 

Today - 3hr bike ride (windy day) (about 90km) 10km run off bike.  Ran pretty well

Disastrous attempt at a 10K race. Gave up at 5K and jogged the rest as I knew the goal wasn't gonna happen. Anything less wasn't worth the effort. Ah well. Winter's training down the gurgler
