Having spent four hours of my 100 miler on Monday in the rain I'd say that's a top decision!

I should have been in Lanzarote last week for a weeks warm weather training, but had to cancel it to attend a tribunal hearing with my ex wife. grrrr. Long story.

Going to a lake near Reading where I work tonight (currently 12.2 degrees) and off to Wales at the weekend to see the kids and will get in the sea near Porthcawl for a bit.

3 weeks to the start of the Deca. how time has flown by!

Nice to see you this morning Seren and Supercaz.

In other news, ive decided im not doing the double.  I spent 90 minutes on the bike this afternoon which would have decided if id do Hampshire Hilly Hundred tomorrow and ultimately the double.

Still getting discomfort cycling and when I finished it was a struggle to stand straight.  Contemplating cycling 100, 200+ miles and a double marathon in 4 weeks is just a non starter.  More important is that I have Ironman Coeur D'alene 24th June, which is really my A race.  I need to be fit for it more so than the double, I also need to concentrate on letting the muscle strain in my back fully recover, which is only going to happen if I lay of the long stuff.  Hopefully with 6 weeks till Coeur D'alene ill get myself sorted.

Having made the decision im quite relieved its been quite a  pressure/frustration this last 4 weeks struggling through.

I'll still be at AT for the double weekend to cheer you all on, cant wait
