A sprain BBT. Fell in to a rabbit hole

Luckily it didn't go a funny colour, but it hurt to walk on, and clicks.

I used to get  the sneezes really bad, and wore a nose clip for about a year. Without it, I would be so blocked up I wouldn't be able sleep the night after a swim.

I tried everything but the only thing that worked was a nose clip.

Its not as bad now, my body must have adjusted

Mine did go a funny colour, not too bad though its happend before and been a lot lot worse, bruised on either side of the ankle and really purple The clicks thing.......... is that my ankle still saying it doesn't want to play?

Planning my last run tonight 15m very easy pace before Marafun next weekend. Then I was just going to do a short 3 miler on Wed. No cross training next week, I'm going to go mad. I Do think I'm ready for my 3:45 A race target though.

2k OW swim last night, still not too cold. Told to work on my body roll and reach, I don't roll enough on my non breathing stroke apparently. Counted strokes between a 50meter marker, forgot about sighting and ended up about 10 meters to the right of the marker I was swimming to. I just can't multi task.

I have a good (2 actually) ankle support your welcome to borrow if you want, its a lace up one (not one of the crap neoprene ones) which holds your ankle firmly so there is no risk of going over on it again.

Purpletrilady,

Bingo!  Exactly that. Totally bunged up still. Just ordered a nose clip.

WTF!  After the last couple of swim sessions in the pool, I`ve had the sneezes, then runny nose. A bit like hayfever.     A reaction to the chlorine?  Anyone else get this and any solutions.  Nose clip?

 

Massively bunged-up after any hard swim session. Usually have to "sleep" in the spare room as a result and it takes a couple of days to calm down. Oddly enough, it's never afflicated me in a race but gets me in every long training sesh. Maybe you just need to go ride 112 miles after each swim set to flush your system?

happens to me too. A nose clip works but I find it uncomfortable and it does mess up your breathng a bit. A snort of beconase after swimming does the trick

I had the same problem a nightmare, runny nose, sneezing, couldn't sleep until someone advised me to try BECONASE a hayfever relief spray. You can get it from Boots or other chemists, I stumbled across it in Tesco. A couple of squirts up each nostril an hour or so prior to the swim and it works a treat. I have suffered no further symptoms as described.

Thanks everyone. I am a hayfever sufferer and Beconase is my weapon of choice, so I know how good it is. Have had a few squirts. Never thought I`d be using it in this capacity.

So is this the place to post about Outlaws or do I stick to the outlaws 2013 thread. I am also in the a Fat man to Ironman camp. Need to lose 1.5 to 2 stone to get to a decent racing weight.

I have the fink book but will probably just do my own schedule as my weakess is swimming so wil do loads of that and loads of the bike. the running bit is what I do and have a good running base.

Hi Tommygun, and welcome

You can be a double agent and post on both threads   .  I take it you've got a place at Outlaw.

29/09/2012 at 11:14
Sounds like your in the right place Tommy. Always keen to read about others ironman journeys & the inevitable weight loss tha goes with it.

Few of us are now signed up to our first Ironman events next year. Would tell you who they are but Gas seems to have dropped the ball where the list is concerned

I'm currently injured so being good and having a couple of weeks off.

Bit of a bonus. Norwich half marathon is 25th November not the 4th that i thought so gives me a few extra weeks to train for it.

Foam roller & stretching is certainly helping the ITB injury. I will definitely be trying to use it on a daily basis going forward.

Im looking forward to signing up for half outlaw whilst waiting for dropouts in the full outlaw . Damn it, im doing both and hang the consequences, assuming 12 drop out sometime soon.

Wifes bday tomorrow so im dodging the look of death to fit in my 60+ bike today and my 75 run tomorrow. Thank god for oh my god oclock - should let me squeeze one of the sessions in before monday. Monday restday will score the missing session

Sorry to hear you are injured SD

My weight loss plan involves me not drinking any beer or going to the pub untill I have run the Beachy Head marathon on the 27th October....two weeks so far and I feel much better for it...I have also done 5 weeks of bootcamp which, although quite sceptical to begin with, does seem to be making quite a difference.

29/09/2012 at 12:34
Thanks for the reminder SD. I must enter Norwich Half....

So then. Following a recent collar bone break, I've now gone and rolled an ankle which (confirmed via a few X Rays and an MRI) has left me with a bit of bone floating around the joint.

Surgery beckons in November and with it a 6 or so week recovery period.

Bother.
