Glad to hear about the swimming. It just clicks.

Remember hard days, easy days and rest days.

Intervals on a turbo are always tough for me!



Well, we were supposed to be going to the gym this afternoon, but once the wife got in from work went for a walk instead. Glorious sunshine here in Glasgow. We were both tired, so a stroll in the sun was just the job.

Took the advice and applied a liberal dose of spit to the HR strap, hey presto, no issues.


Have a good one everybody


I bought Sonogel Electroden-gel from Amazon, it is designed for ECG and Defibrillators, but is also excellent on HR strap, much better than spit (that I used to use). Tube cost around 4 and last for ages

ditto...i use it for athlete testing, more reliable (there's nothing worse than having to halt a test because the HR has dropped out) and more hygienic...

Great tip on the gel chaps, heading over to Amazon now.

Went for a swim at 4pm, after the wife got in from work and had coffee and chat obviously!

Good session, worked on freestyle and finished with 1300m breastroke.

It's been a good Monday off Cool

Yes, I was a tad surprised, but, on reflection, I just kept on going and going. I did double check the old Garmin and it confirmed it.

Took a break this morning, would normally go for a run on a Tuesday, but the old body was feeling the effects of the long weekend.

Need to get my electrolytes/hydration sorted out. Started getting a really bad headache a few hours after yesterday's run. Also cramped up in the pool later on. Didn't feel right until I had dinner with a bit of additional salt.

Funny thing is, I had 2 High 5 tabs in the morning.

Strength and core tonight.

Hamstring still a bit tender from cramp yesterday, so I'll leave the run in the morning.

I have, but I never seem to get round to it, I'm always drawn straight to the forum.

I shall have another look and maybe start one.
