  • Spirit of 1989 The GFT Tribe only got 1 more really big session-20 mile run Weds morning- then I can look forward to the nice weather-E-Dad whats the sketch with the swim has the weather been really hot there and caused the lake temp to rise? Im a bit concerned as im a fair bit slower in the water without my wetsuit???

    • EnduradadAlmost every year at GFT has been wet-suit legal.
      The current night temps are mid 60's and the rain that came through should also keep it cool.
      Sometimes the lake has some chop from the lake affect winds.

  • KAR The GFT Tribe Glad to hear that everyone is conscious of their surroundings, re contagions, viruses, etc. It CAN wreck your race, IF you let it. Be extra vigilant and stay away from anyone with sniffles, a cough, a sneeze. Carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer and use frequently if you must. You can pick up "something" from another cell phone, atm machines, computer keyboards, door handles, gas pump handles, etc. PLEASE be very careful! Yellowcake, get well in a hurry! Let the taper works its magic, rest and re-build. All of the long, hard work is over, take it easy and focus on race day.

  • Spirit of 1989 The GFT Tribe Hi-Edad we fly over on the 13th Oct. Theres eleven of us in the party now so i wont be short of support !!-Yellowcake what part of Italy were you in? I did a weeks training camp in trentino in July it was truly beautiful although the dolomite climbs were painfully long. Its been a difficult week here with night shifts and the subsequent tiredness but hopefully the weather will be kind on sunday for my last big brick

    • EnduradadWith that many I'm sure you have your own chartered private jet.
      Are you shipping your bike or taking it on flight?
      5:22 AM October 06
    • yellowcakeI was in Umbria. It was gorgeous. The weather was perfect. Short rides, but very hilly - - very long climbs - like miles and miles of climbing.......
      7:14 PM October 07
    • yellowcakestruggling with a sore throat right now....at first I thought it was jet lag and dehydration from the long flights, but no...it's a flu of some sort. Need to get rid of this!
      7:16 PM October 07
    • Spirit of 1989Im taking my bike on the flight, so on friday I'll spend a few hours packing it properly then fingers crossed !!! Had my last big brick yesterday 105 miles hilly with an 8 mile tempo run afterwards. the run felt good even though I probably went at it a bit hard(1 min per mile faster than race pace) but id been watching crowies training day on you tube on saturday. hey ho

  • yellowcake Enduradad Italy was awesome! Lots of hills to climb. Our daily mileage was low, but the elevation was high. I did manage to get one long bike ride in by doubling up a days ride and doing it twice (92 hilly miles) and several runs, two of them over 3 hours. I had lined up two different places to swim, but they didn't work out, so no swimming. I'm actually in the airport in Rome right now, waiting to board my flight back to Baltimore (via JFK). Can't wait for this weekend, I have my last big brick then I do some tapering.

    • EnduradadI might be a little envious of being able to go to Italy and bike around. Please bring some Pics.
      Hope your flight back is safe and you recover from jet lag fast.
      Speaking of jet lag, Spirit when are you flying over?

  • Spirit of 1989 The GFT Tribe EDad-had a bit of a disaterous weekend-had a good friday 4 k swim and 111 miles of intervals then saturday came and I was struck down by some kind of viral thingy. I was really wiped out so had an enforced 2 days off. Did 75 hilly miles on the bike with about 750 metres of climbing in just over 4 hours. I felt wiped out at the end so Im hoping im going to be over this soon.Ive got night duty for the next 3 shifts and Im in my last training week so could do without it. How are you going along?
    about 6 years ago
    • EnduradadI sure hope you get rested & recover quicky. It's time to take it easy, but I've never met an IM that could do that well.
      5:32 AM October 02
    • EnduradadAfter years of training and several IM's I still have not come up with a good taper plan!
      I know the simple rule of 3 weeks out do half/then half and then off, but I can't get my mind to accept that.
      This is also the time of year I get scared of anyone who coughs .
      7:43 AM October 02
  • Enduradad Ok, made it to October in one piece. Hope everone's ready to rest up.

  • Spirit of 1989 The GFT Tribe Hi E-Dad doing ok this week but the weathers not weve had constant heavy rain so most of my training has been on the turbo trainer. running is going ok at the moment and the swimming is ticking over. looking forward to getting out there and having the sun on my back for a change. Hows your training going?
    about 6 years ago
    • EnduradadThings are going pretty well.
      Today I'm just stretching and resting up for weekend. This should be my last hard 3 day set. (please note: my hard is your EZ).
      Next weekend I'll run a 1/2 Marathon with my oldest daughter, thne start tapering.
      5:28 AM September 27
    • EnduradadJust checked; 90's in Clermont for high. mid 70's for low.
      5:32 AM September 27
    • Spirit of 1989Bit of a disaster this morning the pool was closed for a refurb so no long swim today. Ill have to drive to another pool for a session tommorow. But this afternoon is a 3 x 20 min turbo session at 10-15 beats per minute above race pace!!! If my wife comes home from work and finds me slumped over mt tribars unconscious let her know what happened!!!Ha ha ha ha
      6:31 AM September 27
    • EnduradadI know that feeling. They close our indoor pool the first week of Sept. every year.
      If she finds you that way I hope it's like me and you're taking a nap.
