Originally posted by ECS49 Good luck in NYC, can't wait to read the report :D Good day yesterday, on top of getting a nice Bike/Run brick in I went to Half Price Books and found the Total Immersion swimming book for 2.99! So I'll have something to read. In other news my Tri is next weekend and I am realizing I have never had my wetsuit ON much less practice in it. Duh, better do that sooner than later. I might not even wear it, we'll see

TI rocked my swimming world the same as Chi running.

GO GET IN THE WATER WITH THAT WET SUIT!!!

(I am doing the same this weekend).

Robin - TI changed my swimming in a great way! I didn't get as much out of chi running - got more out of running more frequently for similar and shorter distances!

Hopefully I am not boring everyone's pants off with my updates.......today was a pretty sweet day though. Since I have began training only using HR I have been improving my running times/paces especially on speed days. Today I set my own PR doing speed work .5 miles at a time.

For reference here is what I am doing: 1 mile to get warm. .5 mile run full speed followed by a .25 mile jog to cool down. Short 1-2 min break and repeat 3x. Then another mile or so to get a good cool down. Ends up being about 3.5-4 miles.

So, half mile #1 set my new PR at 7:12 pace mile! Obviously not crazy fast for some, but for me pretty darn fast. Ended up doing the next 2 at 7:20 and then 7:16 which honestly shocked me because that last half I felt like I was toast and it was gonna be in the 7:30-740 range. Anyways, excited that the HR training MAY be working, I guess we'll see if things continue to improve. I guess the next milestone to break will be the under 7 min half miles which would be pretty sweet.

You can't beat repetition as a tool for improvement, no matter what "technique" you are using.

From someone who runs an average of 12+ min/miles. That is lightening fast! Good work.

Hey all - Good luck to everyone racing this weekend.

I am volunteering at an Ultra Marathon tomorrow.
My friends support crew.
Im volunteering for 6 out of his 12 hour race.
The Ultra is a 5k loop that they repeat. - Ultra around the lake in Wakefield, MA

as for me today
I did a good 25 min of weights - Chest and back - super setting to keep HR up.
Then a 4 mile run (3.88) at a pace I was very happy with.

I’m a C-L-Y-D-E-S-D-A-L-E! Many people in the sport know the division is there, but many of them think that it's a 'fat boys division.' So what constitutes a Clydesdale? Why even have this class?
