4 mile run this morning...certainly wakes you up in this weather!! Then 2500m in the pool this evening, followed by 1 hour spinning, then 30 mins on the dreadmill! If it sunny tomorrow, might go out and play on the bike

One hour beasting in the pool tonight at FitSwim, reckon I swam at least 1600m.  For me that's a real achievement, so feeling very upbeat.  Maybe I'll make that 2:20 cut-off after all....

Thanks, although i've now picked up what appears to be an eye infection. Eye has swollen up overnight, assuming it must have been from one of my swim sessions this week. Off to the quacks later to see whats occuirng

Eeek SD that sounds nasty, hope the quacks can sort you out.

No dramas, its an internal sty. Bit of antibiotic cream & bathing it in hot water should clear it up.

I was mainly concerned about being given anti-biotics and not being able to get mullered at tomorrows work do

Drink through it. Let the pirate inside out!

Hard 7 miler today at lunch. Even going downhill was a big ask. Too hot aswell, even ran in my jacket, which I immediately regretted. :/

True pirate testing ahead - tri club's Christmas do on Saturday ... I asked if people were eating there and got the answer "Eating's cheating" - OMG - am I going to survive this? I normally have 2 pints and then need to go a have a sleep in a corner somewhere. At least Sunday will be a rest day ...

Brit - sounds like you might still be drinking on Sunday

Quality training day yesterday, ran a 21 minute 5k and then did a tough hour of 200m intervals in the pool, taking 5 seconds off the rest time after each one. Then to overload at the end did 6 x 25m at race speed again with a reduction in rest between each one.

Doing a radio interview today at 10.30am UK time for Talk Radio Europe, about Ironman and my second book. If you are bored and on the interwebby you can listen here just don't laugh at how bad I sound.
