Get in to a schedule you can maintain until December the whateverth. 2 x swim, 2 x run, 2 x bike. Then start to build a la Fink/Gordo/Friel. The weight will fall off towards the end anyhow.


Very very very jealous of you all. Outlaw FOMO .

The theory is simple because it is, its planning and determination that lets most (me included) down

arm yourself with reading matter for the autumn evenings

Racing Weight and Sports Nutrition for Endurance Athletes are good reference

I hate to agree with Meldy ()  but Racing Weight is a good read!

On weight loss, i'm down to 13st 9lbs today. A 2st 5lb loss for the year.

Got my 480 mile cycle event next week so that should shift a bit more blubber

SD well done! You're gonna be a shadow of your former self and will have to change your forum name to greyhound!

foot update - Dr was useless and podiatrist today a bit more encouraging - suggested it was a muscle strain and after a little modification to my orthotic reckoned icing, massage and rolling on a tennis ball might do the trick in time for GNR on Sun. We'll see - a bit reassured that it was not anything serious ... Fingers crossed, then ??

SD - 480 miles is one helluva sportive??!

Good luck Andy, that's a pretty intense 4 days.  I want to work up to a century ride by the end of the year ...

IY that's a great write-up, sounds like an interesting race.  Pity about the mechanical, but that's out of anyone's control I guess.  Good job, mate.
