I did 15k in 70 min yesterday. Wore couple layers and long pants. I was comfortable but definitely sweat too much. Did an easy 6k today


Sitting at 176,666. Still planning a 1/2 Friday or Saturday so I will end up over 200

Did my first half marathon on Saturday while kids napped. Hour and 29 mins at rate 19. Paused a couple of times to check the kids.

Still only just over 101k though

Did another hm today. But after two days off and with only 4 days to go I don't think I'm going to make it. Not that I ever planned to or set out to - I'd just assumed with my regular training I'd reach it anyway. Had an unusual number of days off lately.

Done.

Now I can ride my bike around tomorrow evening instead of crank out meters.
I don't have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog.

That is always a concern.

But was more concerned that they know when I'm rowing I can't hear them and they can do what they want

Was going to knock out a 10K plus today but once I stopped to talk to an old training partner I couldn't bring myself to start back.

Good to do a kettle session tomorrow and then maybe go row.

My desire for any kind of intensity/suffering has never been lower. I don't know what it is, but the thought of the tach swinging above medium right now is just repugnant.

Same here. I came out strong and felt like a champ after my GS comp but this past week has been BRUTAL. My pussy is sore.

I just had a fucking massive fail of a session myself. Planned to do an easy warmup to decide if I'd do an easy 30 minutes or an 8x500m session. Couldn't even get through the warmup. Was fucked after a couple of minutes and my hip was snapping and pinching and nothing would fix it. Tried a few more easy minutes but just felt absolutely fucking shit and cheesed off with it. Tried a hard 500m out of frustration and gave up after 400.

Fuck you C2 and your stupid fuckin challenge and your stupid fuckin machine.
