What fire crew are you with?View attachment 111999
It was a rest day this morning, but still got a few miles in
Who are you asking ?What are your target races?.....race dates?.....goal times?........and what plan are you following?
My race is IM 70.3 NC in October.What are your target races?.....race dates?.....goal times?........and what plan are you following?
Anyone who has a race on the horizon. I'm curious where you guys are in your programs and whose program you're following.Who are you asking ?
That's awesome5 miles @8:15 pace. Heart rate never got over 142. Average was 134.
An obvious (to me) question is.....I'm using old plans from the early 2000's that Sonni Dyer made for me when he was a coach at TriMyCoach, but I'm tweaking them quite a bit, with longer rides, continuous swims, etc. I've found continuous swimming with intervals/fartleks are better for me than drills/sets, etc. Back in the day my goal was to complete a Double, with Sonni as my coach, but I'm settling for a Full for my 60th B-Day year
My first race of the year is gonna be a Half in less than 2 months, and it'll be a training race. It'll kinda let me know where I stand and what to semi expect when November rolls around for our "A" race of the year, Ironman Florida, 140.6 in Panama City.
As for where am I in the program? Well, no where near where I'd like to be, particularly with running. Biking? Yeah, I'm on target for possibly the best ride ever, that's closely matching ride times from the early 2000's. Swimming? Slowly matching times or better from prior to having bilateral rotator cuff & labrum surgeries. The run? I used to run like the wind, but now I run like the "winded" and I guess that's a Vo2Max thing that simply declines with age.
What race are you training for and are you using a coach?
The swim is a really good way to build the motor without the wear and tear on the legs for grandpas and I'm actually doing a little overkill on the bike. The run will be my last to build since having issues with tenosynovitis. It seems to be working (fingers crossed), and that was recommended to me by my Ortho Doc (Parker in Boone).An obvious (to me) question is.....
Why are you seemingly focusing so much time and energy on the swim? Wouldn't that time be better spent focusing on your (admitted) weaknesses?
Triathlon is almost ALL about the bike and run. Other than the month before Lousiville, I probably never swam more than 200yds at a time.
I trained every mile for my IM on a .46 mi. brick dust track. I understand saving the legs. I've just never seen so many long swims in an IM build.The swim is a really good way to build the motor without the wear and tear on the legs.

No negative split.Are you gonna try and negative split the marathon?
Regardless..., looks like you'll be having a sub 4 hour marathon which is very cool!
Monday’s gonna be fun!
Based on some previous threads on this site, it could have been a forum member.Today was a first. I've had bottles thrown at me while running, water dumped on me while being heckled, horns beeping, etc. But today on Highway 18 an older model brownish chevy truck with tool box in the back purposely ran off the road and tried hitting me, nearly pinned me to the guard rail by a few inches shy... A minute later a Trooper came my direction and I flagged him down. Very nice gentleman and I hope he caught that POS azzhole.
Y'all be safe out there..., they's some crazies up to nefarious stuff. I'm tempted to start carrying the FN Five-SeveN while running
Easy Pre-Night Shift MAF Zone 2 run complete..
