" I still eat crappy food. I do eat good food, and quite a lot of it. But there are cakes, and biscuits, and crisps with my name on them"

Haha, we are peas in a pod mate, lol. I'm not cutting down on crap food though, ive quit smoking, not had a drink since new year. I need some pleasure

Have you tried mountain biking when the weather is really crud? You notice a big difference going back to a road bike after doing some decent MTB rides

Mountain biking is excellent for crap days 

I managed a swim today and then ignored the gym and turbo session, was a tad tired and still have a night shift to get through so feel a little better for it

Still managed a sub 7 400m TT and the end of an hours swim tho

Meldy, great swimming, 7 minutes is a great time!

Swam yesterday (but not as fast as Meldy), short brick today - 45 min bike & 20 min run.

Pay day tomorrow so I'm going to treat myself to a foam roller.  Although I'm thinking 'treat' may not be the case.

run done for me, just 3 miles, and have also been to the physio who is *very* pleased with progress on my foot   still have to keep to short runs, but short run is better than no run in my book

kettlebells class later, and I'm moving up to heaver weights so won't be able to move tomorrow, which fortunately is a rest day

Good stuff, fraggle!

Nice hour's run today through woods and along canal.  NEWT swim later.

You take it easy with those weights Frags!

I am on a quick turnaround at work so very little sleep and back at a desk already ...
Looking forwards to the Tri show on Friday, may need to keep the bank cards locked away!

I hate my roller. Best thing I ever bought, though markedly the least exciting and it completely lacks any carbon .

Could do with it now for the ITB. Wine bottle it is then!

Good man - empty the bottle and you won't feel the ITB

Evening all, good training. Blinding swim Melds, thats over 3 minutes quicker than my 400m thing i did, lol.

Foam roller is one of the best things ive bought. I use it daily on my calfs, hams, quads & IT band.

Tried to do my back with it but nearly snapped my neck, so be careful with that one!

I though it seemed quite intense for week 1, but as its a 20 week plan, have you followd 20 weeks before, how do they compare with the 30 week plans (fink)?

I don't like Fink ... I always do 20 weeks I normally average 10(ish) hours per week training for a few weeks prior to the plan, have a week or 2 off then start the plan.


I base my plan on the ones on BeginnerTriathlete, but have to heavily modify it due to my lifestyle.

My PB was Regensburg 2011 when i Managed to get (reasonably) close to what i planned
