Season isn't completely over for me yet, still got a couple of races left although nothing I'm really targeting. If I get into the National 50M TT I'd like to avoid coming last Sad

Hoping to get a bit more running in again over winter, most of the injuries appear to have healed so some fell & trail runs, maybe an odd X\C but I've never been a big fan of cross country. Got a couple of local trail half marathons, and if things go to plan I'd like a go at the 3 peaks next April.

With a decent consistent block of training I'm hoping I might get back a bit of time I've lost, although it's getting harder these days.

I have a weekend home alone at the end of Oct, so hope to do a 'local' 200km Audax (The North Wessex Downs).

I'm doing a 140k Audax this weekend in Northumberland so will be a bit rolling. Hopefully it will stay dry.

There's a 200k Audax around the NY Moors next weekend but it will be a long hilly day so I'll probably give it a miss, and I might have missed it's entry anyway.

The 200 I'm looking at is on 27th Oct, last day of BST. Hopefully I'm not racing to get back before it's dark though! Just looked, and it starts at 0700, so should be fine, but will need to take a proper front light just in case (sunset 17.45 ish).

That looks good. Bit too far for me though. Clyffe Pypard & Hackpen are my local hills. May pop down to Marlborough Cafe to cheer you on.

My plans are to get a bit skinnier, which will help my winter goal of a sub 20 park run and a bit more regimented turbo training which in turn will help my aim of winning my AG at every local tri I enter next season!

Gotta be vague, don't want too many fast 40-44 entering my events! Very Happy

Local for me is Suffolk/Norfolk events Smile

I was targeting the Swaffham Early Bird Aquathon next year, as my A Race.

Good choice, top quality field, although locals have an advantage in the swim, what with the webbed feet and 6 fingers....

Lose 14lbs by 16th December (I've lost 18lbs in the past 18 weeks)

Put on 3lbs between 17th December and 4th January 2019
Lose 10lbs by 5th April 2019.

Perform 4-weekly cycling FTP tests, with the aim of increasing my FTP by a realistic amount over the next six months.
Endurance is out (one long ride per fortnight), but I have lots of 30-50 minute slots available to work on lactate threshold and all of that jazz.
I've not performed a WattBike FTP test yet, so do not have specificity on this goal.

Perform 4-weekly running 5KM time trials, at the same parkrun event.
First event on 6th October - 23:20
Second event 3rd November - 22:30
Third Event 1st December - 21:40
Fourth Event 29th December - 21:40
Fifth Event 26th January - 20:50
Sixth Event 23rd February - 20:00
Final Event 23rd March - 19:30

Swimming: Maintain 2-3 20-25 minute sessions per week from September through to March.
Speed: 10*100s under 1:30/100, off 1:45 by end of March
Endurance: 1.9km under 30 minutes by end of March

OH Exclamation - and actually enter some form of paid-for-event for 2019...

That's some going; effectively you're going to be 1km ahead of your October standard by the 23rd March if it goes to plan!

I went from nothing to sub-20 in three months before Iíd even done my first triathlon. I donít know if past knowledge will be a blessing or a curse. I ran a sub20 at a flatter parkrun three years ago when I was a bit heavier than now (but was solely running nearly daily)

Iím actually excited about exercise again!

When you're running sub-20 in a Triathlon, give me a buzz Twisted Evil
