Esay 3km / 10 min hills (20 sec reps) / 1km easy / 2km fast.....

Nothing special but completed in the SMASHING tropical rain, and in the dark.  Was SOOOOO much fun :D:D:D 

At one point it was raining really hard, thinking it can't get heavier, then you could literally hear it turn up even heavier.

Just over 4km in the dam this morning. After only 1 swim in the past 2 weeks, it felt great to be back out there. And it was so windy there were actually ripples across the lake. :)

Except for the middle couple of km where it was sheltered, and like a sheet of glass.

ParkRun....  21:42min, (season best for me so far);  10th and 1st female. 170 odd, even with floods and road blocked. 

I was doing four runs sessions per week, but was getting slower.  Back up to five sessions for the last two weeks and paying off already.

Nice. How come every pic  I see of other runners always  has their feet in the air like a loping gazelle, yet whenever I see a pic of me  it looks like I'm shuffling through treacle?

Same here. I've got a pic of the day I broke 39 for 10km, and I'd swear both feet are on the ground at the same time.

Just over 5km this morning. Would love to have done more, but have "Dad Taxi" duties and had to leave early. The girl I was swimming with (if you count her waiting at each turn for me as swimming with) was continuing on to do 12. 

Maybe one day I'll have the time and the energy both on the same day.

20k run with friends including a 3k unplanned speed session in the middle when things got a little competitive, regretting it now. Longest run since the Brisbane Marathon last August. Bumped into AP on the run as well, good to know I'm not the oldest guy running around the Uni on a Sun morning ;-)

Turn up and Matty Harris is on the mic. :lol: 

Cover = blown

1100m swim, 39k bike and a 10.25k run.

Just over 4km again. That's 3 days swimming in a row & I felt sh1t. Did reps for the first half of the way back from the turn, then decided to mix it up with some other strokes. Felt a bit better at the end, but only just. 

I'm going to try a pool again tomorrow. I hope I remember how to turn more than once every 2km. :)

I spent all day Friday moving house  & then tried to ride yesterday. Damm I didn't realise how fatigued I was from the move. Pushing fridges & crap on a sack truck is bloody hard work. Woke up at 3am cramping like a dog. 

Felt like I had raced Ironman again & reminded me why I retired.

Still waiting on results of a cardiac MRI and getting increasingly frustrated with the wait involved, unleashed a half marathon PB this morning. Running angry helps!

Moving house is definitely one of those problems you should throw money at!

I dragged myself down to the pool this morning. It was touch and go for a while.

Launched straight into 50 x 100 on 1:45. The first couple were a bit quick, but settled into 1:33/4 after 2 or 3. Every 10 reps, I did 2 on 1:29. There were a few times I seriously thought about pulling the pin (can't do that when you are still 1km from where your gear is at the dam), but slogged on. I started to tire after the 2 hard ones at 4km, and my knee was hurting if I tried to push off hard, but managed to get through it with a 1:28 to finish.

With the dam starting to get cold, and a possible cyclone expected to further cool the dam later this week, I may have to resort to the pool a bit more often than I'd hoped over the next couple of months.

25k into 3k brick session.  I had planned a rest day but with cyclone forming off the coast I thought I better make the most of the reasonable weather today. Thinking about Bribie sprint tri in a couple of weeks.

That's OK. I've got one that Roxii gave me which I can wear on the weekends, but I don't want to leave a wet wet-suit in my car all day while I'm at work.

40 min interval turbo session at lunch (Wattbike)

Swim in the evening. I really hope my watch missed a few laps because is states that in 29 mins of swimming, I covered only 975mtrs, eek!  I'm slow but not that slow:huh:

No, if that was the case, the Garmin would be full & overflowing. And after what it has felt like this week, icicles hanging off the side.

Hi. Thought I’d drop in.

Just doing a little bit so I can get through my first tri in 18 months (post prang). NSW tri club champs. 2 weeks out. Sb a good comeback event as I won’t feel like I’m racing, just doing enough to get the club some points. Been on Zwift a bit. Swimming and running are a bit behind. Oh and I’m 6 kgs or so fatter. 

So what did I do today. Ran 2,5 ks to the pool. Swam a k and run 2.5 back to the office. That’s about 25pct of a normal day 18 months ago ;)  

Glad to see lotsa of you still adding to this thread and encouraging each other. Gotta love that about trannies.

Hello Lionel Sanders. Did you fish off with 2 hours in the sauna for acclimatisation?

2 x 1.7km laps at the dam, then straight in to the blood bank for a plasma donation.

I've had my sausage rolls & party pies, and ready to face the day. :)
