Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

However....my intention to complete an easy HM was cut short this morning with a back twinge strong enough to make me quit 😞. Maybe the massage moved something or maybe it was the entire day laying about watching cricket on TV in the heat. Either way I'll be taking it easy until this passes. Do you...

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Yes, finally! Holy s***, that hurt, finally able to dig deep! Although this is a "big" PB, it is not what I really wanted to hit. During March and April, I was doing really good. I jumped from 8249(set in 2013) to 8641 in one jump. Started to aim at hitting 8800, but could not do it. Realized after...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Nothing but a bike ride with my daughter yesterday followed by a full body massage which was nice. However....my intention to complete an easy HM was cut short this morning with a back twinge strong enough to make me quit 😞.

Delighted to oblige!

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

https://i.postimg.cc/rdpSdftJ/IMG-20200807-070232-264.jpg I think this is my eighth PB in four months. Didn't expect much today so maybe later on in the month I can get it closer to 17:15. Heat and humidity definitely played a part today and I almost HDed three times from 3k onwards. HR hit 99% as ...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Lack lustre tonight.....didn't want to do it, probably shouldn't have bothered but dragged myself through 2x5km/1:45R. No problem keeping this under 130bpm but it was a struggle in terms of motivation :(

Re: New Personal Best! Brag About That New Pb!

Well, another good improvement in PB but another missed goal and another loss to the chimp that cost me. 30 Minute PB - 8366 90M improvement but old PB was really old and low hanging fruit. Goal was 8400m+(1:47.1 pace) and I just didn't get it done. Was on pace if not too fast early but thought I w...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Not going to call this failing, I'd rather call it pushing my boundaries :) Last time I got to 3k, this time I broke 4k. It might take me 10 more attempts, but I feel like I am getting closer and closer to my old shape, so hopefully will be able to string together this 6k soon :) current PB 20:53 i...

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Tbh I may not do CTC or FMMC for a while unless it's blue/green zone efforts. It doesn't have the same thrill when you can't push. I'm getting really frustrated by the lack of contact by BUPA. I can understand that. What about focusing on mid distances at 80-85% pace? The short sharp stuff is too d...

I assume you're happy enough with this to not go again? It's a good result, but play it safe for a while now...please :wink: I'm done! 😉 Tbh I may not do CTC or FMMC for a while unless it's blue/green zone efforts.

Re: What Training Have You Done Today?

Solid effort Alex, just below red zone HR?! Yeah perhaps a bit risky but I'm still here :shock: :wink: August CTC today, had no real idea how to pace it, so the plan was >400W for all 4. Worked very good, a hard effort but not max, 1-1.5'' faster is possible I think. The last interval was a bit too...
