4.7km leisurely swim around the dam with a group from Grimsey's squad. There to celebrate Mary's successful Channel swim the night before. They say IM is just as hard for the 17 hour athletes as those finishing in 10, but I reckon swimming for over 17 hours would be a lot harder than doing it in 10.

If they don't does that mean you get a red box on training peaks for the day?

One hour paddle for me today. 

Beaut winters day here in Sydney so got the ski out. 

3 weeks in from never having paddled before and it has been a steep learning curve.

Sorry mate, but do u look around when you run? You seem to have a lot of encounters with other users. 

Or a shit ton of bad luck.

Gorgeous weekend and a lovely end to a great week of training!

Yesterday was 4:45 on the turbo at 65 - 75% FTP, watched Mama Mia in preparation for the evening's entertainment. Icecream trip with the wife (such grown ups) then a 45 min trail run followed by a cinema trip for Mama Mia Here We Go Again (two hours of pure joy).

Today I woke up in great shape (looking promising for LCW) and went out for a beautiful run around Dremmoyne whilst a couple of friends and the wife walked / ran around the same loop. 1:40 in Z2 (which was weirdly up at 5:20 pace) then last 20 minutes at 4:00s.

Brunch then recovery swim this afternoon with all the toys.

A great weekend of a load of training but managing to incorporate the better half into most of it too! :D

I have been rooting around with 4 hours of training, sorry - moving,  the last 6 weeksafter having 4 weeks off from Port in May.  I have been in the Hunter Valley for the last 3 days having fun. The season starts tomorrow. It starts with the 1st step.

Yes I do look around.  Wrong place at wrong time maybe the case.  And not being a cock head about it but probably running at a faster pace you have less chance of avoiding a car pulling out of driveway etc.  

Prefer it be me then a kid on its bike though.  Seen some close calls with this too.  

Actually one day was running and there was a car parked across the footpath (driveway) that had a little baby in it screaming.  Doors locked no one in sight, I assumed the parents were in the house where parked but judging by the look of place I chose to ignore the situation

Maybe I just need to do faster stuff on the bike paths etc.

Nice work Monkie. 5.20 for Z2 isn’t shabby!

Thanks mate! I've had it up to 5:00 but that's at the end of a taper. For mid build I'm feeling rather pleased with myself :)

Not when you roll BE effort for the ride and the run is super easy. Not sure what a red box is.... 🤔

 

Stairs at the stadium were harder 😂😂👍

 

FB that sucks. 

Maybe find a quiet stretch of path somewhere? That's what I'm doing for the majority of my runs until Busso. Just do the time required at the required feeling. Hope you are going okay mate 

 

Awesome stuff Roxii 😎👌

I think that's the secret. I kept the easy running around the footpaths & built up areas, and did my quick stuff on open bike paths and in the forest. You'd have the occasional incident with someone wandering around the bike-paths with headphones, but you usually had enough forward visibility to prepare.

 

And I've started my week with an upper body session at the gym, working on my core, back & shoulders to try to keep the niggles away when I start upping the miles in the pool.

seems common sense to not do your 3min kms in built up areas but you know what they say about common sense.

1500m in the pool, nice and easy - only noteworthy because I have been sick and not done a thing for 10 days and Worlds are in 4 and a bit weeks.  Me stressed?  Not a bit.....

Yes air temp. 

The lake wouldn't be deep enough to swim in. Just a fancy swamp, still nice to circumnavigate at a comfy pace 😎✌️😁

Took the daughter on her first ride on her new MTB in the bush! She was pretty stoked she didn’t crash and get a scratch.

2.2km swim yesterday followed by 90 mins of low cadence super FTP intervals 🤮

Today was strength and then long run. 140 in Z2 (back in it's proper place of 5:45s) and then 26:40 at 4:05s. Tired now.

Hoping to do Sydney half at 4.05s or below in a few weeks though 👹

it was in the work gym, no a/c and no fans, plus it's underground, so no windows.  Would have been cooler outside probably!

29c last couple of days. Bit cooler today. UK and Europe are experiencing some of the highest temps on record at the moment, been going on for weeks now.

OK, this is weird, yesterday I did the above.

Today I did the same route but rode to the hour so was 34.8km but averaged 233 watts.  Obviously some sandbagging going on somewhere. :lol:

I've never used zwift, but I would have thought they would make it interactive enough that if you can position yourself directly behind another person, or in a pack it would make allowances and give you better speed for the same power output.
