You'll sleep just find after tri club NR 

I never sleep well after tri club.

for me it's an hour of running speed work which i'm not used to then an hours swim. I enjoy it a lot but with a 10pm finish I find my legs a bit twitchy when I try to sleep afterwards, just given up and thought id go on the puter for a bit before trying again.

actually due to travel with work tonight was first time back at tri club for several weeks, ive been training loads in the meantime and noticed a good improvement in relation to others at the club who I run with.

Noticing an improvement is very good

 yes, especailly as im not new to running, its the additional swimming and cycling thats doing it, my weights coming off too, another few months and I should no longer be a fatman.

Morning All,

An hour speed session in the pool last night nearly killed me. Decided I'd have an easy day today, so out at 5.30am for a 10 mile run. Teaching from 9-5 solid and then a run home tonight.

I don't think I'll have any trouble sleeping.

Have a great day everyone.

Nice work Holgs, sounds like you have an easy day planned .

Still recovering from half marathon escapades last Sun, legs are still tight.

Went swimming last night to loosen them, was told that not allowed to use any training aids so looks like I need to find a new pool.

Whats the clue M.elds?

BBT - no training aids at all? I know somw pools don't allow paddles, but yours sounds a bit extreme.

Will - it's better you're ill now than next week. It will give you an enforced taper too which will help your marathon.

Ankle surgery booked in for Nov 15th to:

1) Remove a floating bit of the Talus bone that’s insolently made its way into the joint

2) File down the bone spur that has grown from the part where the above mentioned bit of bone came from

Recovery time… ohhhhh about 6 – 8 weeks.

Bum.

Just back from my first session with the tri club, and I loved it  .

ID hope the surgery goes well you'll be back training in time for next season.

Nurse glad you had fun at the club session, hope you sleep well after.

I did another sufferfest session we did local hero. , that was hard work and my borrowed bike wasn't very comfy so I'm a bit John Wayne now.

Oh and it fell off the front block I managed not to fall off but I must learn to keep a stiller position ; I must wriggle far too much for that happen .

12 miles tomorrow.

Goodnight Melds, sleep tight, don't let the bed bats bite

Ggrrrrr !!   I shall blame you for the little to no sleep I had today with thanks to whichever gasboard was digging up my road for the most part of today, no number of pillows can disguise the noise of the machinery they were using

I am soooooooo tired !!

Ali - well done on the sufferfest. I just prop my front wheel on a yellow pages, so even if I wriggle the wheel doesn't come off. Yellow pages is not very thick though, so it does feel a little like going downhill but I am used to it now

SL - it is scary when you start seeing your extra weight in terms of the weight of a child, and then lift up your own child and realise just how much it is! Just think how speedy you will get when you lose the weight
