this week: at least one day off from running; ride 2x; swim meet Saturday! (swim 5-6x)
all done! I ran 6x for a total of 41.9 mi, swam 6x for a total of 7900 yds, and rode 4 times for a total of 12 miles (used the bike to commute for a couple days).

The meet went well. I won the 500, 1650, and 200 (in that order), times 6:19, 22:27, 2:32 respectively. I was happiest with my 100 free (1:07.28) because I had head-to-head competition and won the heat by half a second. It was fun :-) I'm not thrilled with the distance race times, but I haven't been swimming a ton so I can't expect anything much faster.

Goals this week - day off from running, ride 2-3x, swim 5x

Thanks for getting us started, Dr. Tigerchik and congratulations on your swim meet!

My goals were pretty standard:
four runs (but hold about the same as my normal weekly mileage), two bikes, two swims, two strength sessions, and yoga class. I'll do my daily p/rehab. I might go climbing.

I did everything I said I'd do and went climbing. The trail Ragnar was fun -- I ran 14 miles and 3K of climbing in 3 fun legs with a fun group. I must have been on a trail kick because for my second bike of the week, I rented a MTB and tried that for the first time -- it was super fun.
This week, I have three runs, three bikes, two or three swims, two strength sessions, a yoga class, and my daily p/rehab. I *might* do a local sprint this weekend mostly because it's Thanksgiving themed and there's pie at the finish line!

My (sports but not-fitness) goal for November is to figure out my race plan/goals for 2018.

Hi TC and hello womens,

I haven't been able to get on the computer long enough recently to be a part of this forum, but I've been reading what you've all been upto.

TC, I'm so sorry a member of your family is going through cancer. Our family has gone through so much cancer in recent years I really empathise with your family. Also, huge congratulations on your successful swim meet.

last week I swam x1, bike x2, ran x2 and climbed x4

SBR seems to keep getting interupted at the moment as my family just wants to climb, climb, climb - It's exhausting (I've finally admitted I cannot combine the two sports!!)!! We've started lead climbing now. As this is something I've really wanted to learn, I've been devoting quite a bit of energy to learning/practising the skills - holding on for my life and clipping in correctly. On Sunday we completed our training with some fall training - falling 3m just made me scream! lots of fun, but tbh I'm still really scared of falling!! I don't know whether the fear will ever go away, but I'll keep with it and hope I feel more comfortable about lead climbing one day. My family on the other hand love it and I'm happy we've found a family hobby we can all do together for a very long time.

Anyway, I now have 7 mths till Roth, so it's time to start getting serious and be more disciplined with myself.

Goals for this week are run x5 (1 done), bike x5 (2 done) and swim x2. Probably climbing x4 (1 done - well, bouldering), if I get too tired I'll just do easy routes and belay.

Have a lovely week Womens!

Well done all the women: Dr TC on the swim meet, SoCal on the Ragnar, Anna on facing down some fears and ironclm on a big week!

I got back from England last night and it was great to sleep in my own bed again. I had a fantastic time with my sister (I REALLY REALLY wish we lived closer) and got some quality time with my dad and Dan's family too. Now I'm just settling back into the swing of things with the aim of some consistent cycling and strength training until we head to Tucson next month.

Aims for this week: 4 trainer rides, 2 strength sessions.

Hello Women!

Wow. Sounds like a lot of great times.

Me? Meh. SICK. Blah. I don't like it. Trying to remember that colds go away eventually....

Goals for this week: be healthy again. I'll let you know how it goes!

The trail Ragner sounds like loads of fun, 3km of climbing wow! In fact when I first read your post I understood the climbing as rock climbing :-D I need to seriously starting thinking more SBR and less rock climbing!! Although, you are so fit I did actually imagine you and your team attempting this!!

Anna s, thanks! It was more climbing than I anticipated that's for sure but alas all on two feet :D It's great that you and your family are learning to lead -- I feel comfortable lead climbing but much less comfortable lead belaying. I've done it before (inside and out) but I am not certified to lead belay at the indoor gym where I'e been climbing but you've inspired me to get on that.

Get well soon, SLOGoing.
Great job, IronCLM.
So glad you had a nice trip, Scheherazade.
