I’ve been planning my weeks around TSS.
Managed 9-10 hours and 550 for the 2 weeks preceding last week then only 6hrs and 250TSS last week due to a weekend off.

Been doing a lot of strength work which is helping a lot.

9 weeks to my 70.3 and starting to slowly ramp up the miles.

After a week in Ibiza, put in a solid week last week. 8 hours total, 3 of each swim bike run.

Life got in the way again 6/9 last week. Feeling good about my easy run pace and cycling though, no twinges in the knees since I dropped run Intervals. Eyeing up some OW swim races...

9/9

Only one swim though as bike took precedence.

Finally managed to get in a Tennis session with my son today too Smile

First proper week of training in what seems like an eternity. A combination of taper for Mallorca, then a repetitive weekly cycle of recovery and shorter racing, which probably led to a few days of illness, meant things really took a downward turn for the past 5-6wks or so.

However last week was the beginning of the final proper build towards Copenhagen, and whilst I felt pretty tired during the middle of the week, I actually felt really rather strong over the weekend (143k bike on Saturday, 3.6k lake swim and 25k run on Sunday).

Total numbers:
5 swims covering 12.25km
3 bikes over 7.5hrs (375 TSS), plus 2 days of commuting (another 2hrs / 40km)
3 runs covering 54km in 4.5hrs

Total TSS per trainingpeaks was 1042. By far my biggest in over 2 months, and the only time I've been over 1000 outside of formal training camps.

8 hours.
Trots gone and so is the memory of of the Deva curse!
Really lost my mojo the last few weeks, but back at it now.

Stick at it folks, some of you have A races looming.

Solid numbers last week 9/9 for 8 hours.

Missed Sunday's long bike ride due to the trots!

Wife has come down with a cold, so it's only a matter of time!

Started a new job, and back to cycle commuting 2-3 times a week, and so far I love it! I'm probably going to over-train a bit, unless I rein back the lunchtime run sessions, so need to keep an eye on that. Plus I need to join the gym that's conveniently 100m away, and has a 25m pool Cool Only thing there, is even with a membership discount, I need to use it 3-4 times a week to make it comparable to swimming at a public pool!

Managed 3 runs last week including an 800m rep session. Probably a bit soon after my 100, as it wasn't very pretty in the heat. Inadvertently then had 6 days off in a row, which probably isn't a bad thing to be fair.

Easy run today and a relay event with the club tomorrow. A 3.4km off road circuit, so fast and furious. Well it'll feel that, even if i'm moving a bit slower than normal!!

I'm similar in my gym membership. Mine's only about 30m from the office entrance however! It is only a 20m pool though.

Ultimately, a gym membership is an expensive way to swim, but I do get to use the wattbikes there too. And whilst I could just turbo train at home and then get a SW London leisure centre swim membership that would cost a lot less, the "value" of being able to fit a decent chunk of my training into lunchtimes is actually worth quite a lot in terms of maintaining the work/life/training balance.

This is it for me really, the convenience and what premium that's worth. It means I can nip over at lunchtime or whatever time I choose to have a break that day (or before work) and it's inevitably quiet most of day, apart from term-time swim lessons for kids at 4-5. Access to swimming is one of the biggest issues with the activity, and this has pretty much laid it on a plate for me. Just need to bite the bullet on the membership.

First week over 18 hours.

4 runs in 2:28 for 36k.

Half marathon at Southport next Sunday.

Stick at it!

Another good week for me, 70.3 is now 7 weeks on Sunday.

Main highlights, 40 mile ride yesterday and an 8 mile rum on Saturday. Pushing the distance now and not feeling uncomfortable.

Those 2 sessions alone have given me a pile of confidence for the event.

6 runs 60.1km in 4:15

Week before last I was a bit under the weather:

6 runs 44.6km in 3:16

4 commutes 126km in 360 minutes

1 road ride towing Otter 80min 30km 117AP 209NP

Last week

7 runs 59.9km in 4:03

4 commutes 123km in 360 minutes
1 road ride 86min 34 km p2max battery dead not noticed until too late
1 road ride towing Otter 80min 27km 183AP 217NP

As I've said before I'm quite a rhythm runner, I just go out and run, one my runs, I had to collect Otter from school in less than 30 minutes, so 7.2km and I felt pushed to get the first lap in quick enough to do the second lap. Led me to running that run at ~3:52, which actually meant even the rest of the runs that week continued to be faster than I've done recently.
