Good to see you have had a good strength phase - this month's CTC is tailor-made for you.Kevinhorne44 wrote: ↑Wed Nov 24, 2021 8:34 pm Cant believe that a month has gone by since I last posted here !!
The strength phase has gone really well. My first real block of it in 30 years now for the hard bit transferring as much of the power into my rowing?? If I can keep 90-95% of my new numbers I'll be happy.
How is your training going Lesley ?? It sounds like your in the build up phase of your run in to the WIRC
Paul I hope the swimming is going well. I presume the walking boots are warming by the fire now ? Your numbers on the ctc are good
What are you up to Iain ??
The swimming is going well, if a bit more infrequent with work issues etc - the good news there is my aerobic fitness is improving and I am now able to swim breathing only on every third stroke, anywhere between 1500m and 2500m per session.
I have upped the walking now and am trying to do at least one long(30+km) walk per week - this month I have so far done a 53km, a 42km, 36km and a 30km, with a 32km North to South IOW walk on Sunday.
Am hoping to do the Round the Island in 24 hrs next July - to do this requires a pace of 4.8 km/h(3 mph) over 116km.
At the moment I am averaging about 5 km/h with all the stopping and getting lost for walks of 40km or so, so making progress - on the plus side, for the 24hr walk I know the route blindfolded and will be doing it in a group who tend to walk at close to 6 km/h, but on the flip-side they tend to have long rest stops which I don't like - I prefer to keep moving to stay loose.
