|So I'm now a pirate, (ie normal people who are inspired by the runners world forumites doing IMs)..... This involves drinking beer, buying lots of yellow kit, oh, and a race or 2 a year to give it an objective.
I bumped into the pirates via the runners world magazine / forum, and they gave me the confidence to dare enter an IM.
2010 IMDE - flat, Outlaw - flat
2011 IM Regensburg 2011 - flat, IMWales - hilly, oh so windy
2012 Lanza - hilly and windy
2013 - IM Lanza - the return :-)
Recovering from knee issues, (too many rugby injuries) so now the plan is to swim OK, be an Uber Biker, and just let the run take care of itself. Oh Well
Monthly Pirate Mentor Update - Phase Base 1 repeated
by orangecannon Mar 7th 2010
Overviewmy overall plan
Did another 4 weeks of base 1 as there is still lots of time....... Training over the last month has been mixed, with some good long stuff, but also some yucky weather.... Life also got in the way with a weekend spent kayaking, and another doing family stuff.
Next Month - Base 2
The only query I have at the moment is what HR are your long runs / long bikes...?? so I can compare them to mine. I feel I am going a little easy, (but its taken me a while to stop just going for it......)
Long Run HR is 135-140, Long Bike HR is 130-ish....
Hope your training is progressing as well....
