Rice & Bacon cakes?   You're not right in the head woman

Perfect Pirate material then.

I'm a big proponent of solid food on the bike.  I can't stand gels.  My new favorite are Bonk Bars (which just happen to be the official bar of IM over here).

In answer to your question .. all depends on the turbo

Mine eats tyres for breakfast and it is half way through a turbo tyre for whatever reason, try it and see, you'll soon see if its a bad idea by little black rubbedr dots all over your floor

Ello again all..... been a few weeks.  Anyway....

My turbo visibly munches normal road tyres from session to seesion.  I now use a turbo specific tyre from one of the usual suspect makers.

Evening all

Hard day for me today

- intervals swim (400s)

- 1hr tempo x-country run ... Including 6mile time trial
- 40 mins on the rower
- 25 mins core work

The 6miler is measured by my Garmin .. And I managed it almost 7mins faster than 3 weeks ago

Sounds harder than an IM. You should get a tattoo for that Will.

Will's too hard for this thread

There is a damn good pizza place in Bala as well  !!

 is that the one in the old bank?

my turbo eats tyres too, I buy the cheap and nasty ones from giggle, this one has lasted a good 6 months. Don't do what my idiot OH did, he was merrily cycling away on the turbo. When he got off he said it seemed a lot harder work than last time. I went to have a look. No wonder it was bl**dy harder, the back wheel had been up against the wall, which now has a tyre shaped grove in the plaster!

Postie I am not too sure, just off the main drag down a little side street as I recall?

Binned the turbo idea and did lots of core work instead

Thought it was a rest week for you after the HIM.

DOM, that was the plan. Just fancied a swim

Holiday in France next week, hoping to get a few lakeside runs in.  This week:

Monday: 25m bike, 4m brick run

Tues: 1 hour swim

Weds: 12m bike

Thurs: 1 hour swim

Still thrilled at how my swimming's coming along, at last.  800m this morning, the distance of my next tri, so my confidence is building.  See you all soon!

Sun stupid O'clock 14 mile run

Tue 4 mile run and quick 20 mins spin on bike to test new computer thingy.

Wed 7 mile run and 1 hour swim/drown

Thur 4 mile run

Need to do more swimming!
