    I looked up about socks or no socks I wonโ€™t to get through transition on the triathlon as quick as possible, having done a duathlon about 3 years ago I messed up a bit and cost time. Bike no socks was fine after running feet a little sweaty 😷but for 5k I can get away with it.

      Brick run having done 11.5 miles bike. Cycling and running with no socks trial looking to save time in transition for the triathlon. As a sprint tri can get away with no socks. Swim yesterday and another one in the morning after work.
      Not an easy week lack of sleep a bit of running around to get car sorted as gearbox trouble and wallet…[Read more]

    • Tri training going well Richard, not sure I like the idea of minus sox tho 😄

    • Wow nice one Richard well done, how did the legs feel after the bike? I’m reading Lousie Minchin’s book at the moment, and she was saying the first time she did it; her legs were like cement and a 5k run was pure hell for her

    • Great brick session Richard, must have felt a bit weird running without socks 😊

    • bet it felt odd no socks? a good run after the cycle

  • Itโ€™s West Lancashire summer triathlon at Edge Hill University Ormskirk, doing this with my son. Yes I found zone 2 to slow for me, but thought I would give it a go may have another go after the tri and HM.

  • Emma itโ€™s a 400m swim 11.5 mile bike and 5k run

  • Well ran using the zones you seem to have a knack to it, and patience to go with it.

  • Sounds like a good lunch run

      Tried out HR Zone running , started off at zone 2 but I personally found this to slow for me so went for Zone 3 a max HR 149bpm . A friend of mine who has done Ultra running said Z2 was good training in Ultra. I think I will stick with pace or how I feel, I guess some of you like HR Zone training we all have our preferences. Trying to fit…[Read more]

    • Are the hr zones the garmin ones or have you changed them? If they are the Garmin ones then they might be too low and you’d need to do a max hr test to get the proper readings but as you say if you’re not enjoying it you’ve got to work with what feels best for you. Sounds like you’ve been busy with the training for the tri and good luck for Sunday ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I find HR training quite hard to follow too, places are slow but they’re supposed to get better as you stick with it. Anyway, my HR battery has died on me, and I’ve yet to replace it, so back to pace training.

      A good 8 though Richsrd, and don’t worry about being busy, it happens!

      Good luck with the tri too. I’m off for a swim in a bit, I love…[Read more]

    • As a newbie to HR training i totally get how you felt, it does slow you down but im hoping to see the benefits in my favour? got a bit on so maybe try it again ince your tri and mara are done? well done on the 8 plus 😊

    • Well done Richard. I’ve recently had this HR stuff foisted upon my by virtue of a new Garmin watch. I guess I need to work it all out, but like you say … its difficult not to just run in a way you are comfortable/prefer.

    • I have been running with watch a couple of months my natural running pace sits in Zone 4 in zone 2 was a slow jog. Thanks all but yes Lizzy may have a go after tri and HM

    • HR training isn’t for everyone – you need a good plan, a lot of discipline and a hefty dose of patience when you start, plus you need to do the tests to find the right zones for you. Good steady 8 there though – look forward to seeing how the Tri goes 👍👏

    • Fab miles Richard no use talking to me about HR zones im afraid 😄😄

    • I’m with you Richard I tend to run to what I perceive as fast or steady not HR, I occasionally wear HR but don’t have it visible on my watch so only know when I download the run. Anyway it looks a good run to me pace and mileage wise well done you

    • I haven’t got to grips with this HR training either! I’m also training for a tri and struggling with the swimming. What distance are you doing? Looking forward to seeing how you get on. Nice running today 👍

    • Emma itโ€™s a 400m swim 11.5 mile bike and 5k run

    • Sounds like tri training is going well, well done

    • Which HM are you doing? I can imagine that running in zone 2 would seem painfully slow to you!

    • Itโ€™s West Lancashire summer triathlon at Edge Hill University Ormskirk, doing this with my son. Yes I found zone 2 to slow for me, but thought I would give it a go may have another go after the tri and HM.

    • I’m not trying to get to grips with hr training, just want to run at the mo. Got to say it makes a run log quite hard to read so please everything put in the eventful stuff too 🤣
