29.1 hilly miles biked in 2hrs 14min (at least, I think it's hilly).  Would be a tiny bit quicker if I could get the bottle out of the cage to have a drink without having to stop .

Nursey .  as BBT has alluded to, the cheaper the roller the less density, I believe its the Fit66 ones that are quite good?

40 miles on the bike for me, 4 layers but it was very nearly spring

Hope it goes well, Will.

Got a question for you all.  Strength & conditioning -- what do you do, and how much?  I do some exercises in the house a couple of times per week, but feel it's nowhere near enough.  I hate gyms ... but thinking about fitting a gym/weights session in on a Friday morning (and maybe a swim afterwards too).

At start of program it drops to 1-2 sessions per week (Insanity type stuff) plus occational core work at end of tri specific session

then to 1

Back from physio: Patella Tendonitis, Tight ITB: exaggerated by knee hyperflexion. So not all bad news.

I have had treatment, Need to rest it this weekend but can still train starting from Monday

Plus I nned to look at wearing heals/lifts to ensure my knee is pushed more forward .... stiletoes anyone?

Zoggs goggles a tad cheaper than elsewhere

A few odds and sods of clothing, not that many bargains that I saw tbh, dependant on what you are after !!
