What training did you do today...

Recommended Posts

Swam, run and rode.

Beers with some fellow motorbike travellers to plan our next trip.

Considered moving back to the coast.

What did you decide Greyest?

Haha you were so drunk you struggled to put a sentence together.

 

Good evening. Beers went down well.

Yes, you are right. It was one of those moments when I could here myself not making sense (against not having a clue) and bailed early(ish).

 

Is that a regular for you (at the local in your suburb) on a Saturday night?

On a study trip to Cape Town. Ran from Sea Point to the top of Signal Hill, along the crest to Lion's Head, over to the Cable Car, then down to Camps Bay and back to the hotel.

 

28 degrees and beautiful. Saw a scorpion the size of a small dog, though and scared the living pi$$ out of me.

Did you run with a gun or have a security crew run with you?

4 days motorbike riding in the high country in January, Tassie in October and in 2019 possibly start riding around the world. Even if we only get South America done, it's more than some people do In there entire life.

Still undecided about when the coast move will be.

You had any more kids, lol

Hi Cranky, I went to do the 7am swim and left to go to Ennogera reservoir when the swim got cancelled. We did a swim to the wall and back.

I'll say hi next time. Should be there for the next session, maybe 6am this time !

I'll be at the 7am next time as I'll have the girls with me

Two days (100km-ish) into a three day ride on the Otago Rail Trail in NZ. I'm on an e-bike to assist my dodgy knees, the Mrs is on a straight MTB. The e-bike is fab. You can set it at 0 (no motor assistance) to 5 (boost, which is like a frickin motorbike). So far I've only needed 0-2 and the knees are going pretty well.

We are staying in some tiny little one horse towns. Currently in the Waipiata Pub. This was the Mrs idea and it was a cracker. Really enjoying just riding through the NZ backcountry. These guys do tourism so well it is ridiculous.

And 12 trout caught on fly so far ranging from 6 inches to a nice 4lber despite most of the rivers being blown out due to heavy rain.

The wind out here has to be experienced to be believed. First 25kms today was cross/headwind but luckily we were in 'hillier' areas and thus protected by railway cuttings.

Second 28kms we had a roaring tailwind and were holding 25-32kmh on the flats without pedaling! On this section we met two Aussie girls going the opposite way and damn they were hurting!

This ride is on my to-do list.

 

As well as the Alps to Ocean over there also.

Lived in Dunedin for a few years and did the rail trail several times. It can get a bit blowy! But well worth it

The Mrs got blown off her bike today & went within an inch of going over a 10m embankment.

 

I'm in trouble as I just told her to stay down on the deck till I could fire up the GoPro as it will make a good story for our holiday vid.

 

We've since heard of another cyclist who has ridden all over the world and pulled the pin on the Otago Rail Trail phoning for the sag wagon as she was so scared of the wind. Soft. The Mrs got back on and battled on, though we both had to get off and walk the bikes several times over one 10km section. We caught up with a group of 60-somethings who had to do similar. One woman told us she was walking her bike and the gusts were so strong, the wheels just left the ground with her hanging onto the bars and seat.

 

And I'm in trouble again for not making enough sympathetic noises about the Mrs left hand which no longer works so well.

 

But she'll be right.

90km bike and a 4km run

 

Totals from Friday arvo to mid morning today are 700m short of a half Ironman. Cumulative time of 6:09 which is a 50min Pb. Pretty happy about being able to do something everyday and back it up.

 

Still not at IP levels but that's crazy shit

No, but we had a trip to the Township of Gugulehto where the annual murder rate stands at 304 this year and it was surprisingly in-scary. The area where we were staying is very middle class!

Great stuff mate, you're smashing it!

 

Keep enjoying it and you'll be fine, the sky's the limit.

 

(PS - How bout that... you've just done a Half Ironman and it didn't cost you a cent!)

Yeah, AND....no nutrition or food. Just water to thirst. Makes a difference when you pace correctly [emoji1][emoji1][emoji1][emoji106]

Slow 24 x 25 m freestyle in the pool. Lotsa funny crunchieness still around the rib area in back and rotations weird. Sore in muscles post (good sore mostly). Will see what my physio says (or yells;) tomorrow. Oh. And a couple more 5 kms or so jogs.

 

Getting fat, some shirts n pants no longer fitting :(.

Todays training:

 

Caught 4 trout in my 'Lake Nemesis' - which no longer deserves that title as I've cracked the Da Vinci Code on this one.

 

This may not sound very physical (though casting a fly into a ripping headwind on a 4wt rod gets a little intense), but it requires 5mins of sloshing through a tussocky aligator swamp (think Swamp People...minus the gators) in full neoprene waders. By the time I reach the water, or the car on the return trip, the HR is at least 140.

 

Still can't figure why NZers would want to leave for Oz?

Short intervals with longer breaks.

20sec very hard/40 easy as example

Should be 20secs on/10 off for 4 mins (i.e 8 times through) is one Tabata... so Parkside did 16 mins of it by the sound of it...

Yep that's correct. Short and sharp. 20 on 10 rest. "On" is seated sprint, cadence 120+ for 20 seconds, 10 second roll down, 8 times, 2 min easy recovery then repeat. Almost becomes spewbata by the end of the second round.

 

Flanny there's an app for timing it so you just listen for the beeps once you go cross-eyed

Managed a slow but steady 1 hr run this morning. Happy with that.

 

Slowly getting a bit of fitness back.

 

Monitoring my steps and intensity minutes (fenix3) per week has helped me understand where my limits lie whilst recovering from RRV.

 

Good times.

 

Although the muscle pain for 4 or 5 hours today reminds me not to try that again too soon!

1 goal two behinds and a speccy. (OK fell over a teammate but managed to keep hold of the ball, very spectacular from all accounts!)

That running through the soft sand wrecked me. Been at a conference the last 2 days going through the expo for most of it so on the feet (which was a great change from being seated at a desk all the time), decided to forgo any training for the last few days and concentrate on recovery with the foam roller. Got a 1.5 hour run planned for tomorrow night with the same group, better not be any sand this time

This is GREAT for business, almost better than 0/35 soccer. I've had both Mums and Dads coming in after getting smashed, popping calves, doing AC joints. It's gold.

How many people from F45 GYMS do you get

Ha, good question. had a large gym close down that ran massive 12 week transformations(lots of business from them) their clients dispersed among the other local facilities and an F45 popped up after their demise. Had a girl last week that went from doing 6 days a week, nothing for a year, then did the F45 7-day free trial and did a class a day for 7 days (couple of double days) and came in with exploding shins.

 

Apart from that no more than most of the other gyms around. Smashing people is endemic in the industry now.

Just funny as they market themselves as having trainers that cater for people with injuries who adapt exercises if the case.

Unfortunately a cert iv doesnt cover that so in essence they are making false claims.

Parky,

 

Ha, I'm not surprised, some old bastard goes down each week.

 

I only play every second week as the off week is needed for rt side hamstring recovery.

 

But, I haven't had so much fun playing sport for years.
