" I'm doing lots of neck exercises" good girl

Well done on the cycling. Done just over 3 hours today. Didnt intend to do but due to hurricane head winds i was slowed down somewhat.

My avg pace dropped by about .5 mph today, it wasnt about speed it was about getting out there and JFDI

I did Chrissie's 97 minute Audiofuel session.  Can't get that Kings of Leon song out of my head, but I don't think their lyrics were "Your legs are on fire".

lol Nursey - that's one of my favourite 'versions' of that song


30 mins run at a very pedestrian pace - feel well knackered now, and at the "I can;t watch" stage with the rugby


most impressive cycling Melds

When will the lakes open? I know the OW location by me is open all year but when will it be warm enough for swimming without gloves, boots, anything other than the wettie?

First swim last year (end Apr) was advertised as 12deg, but was waay colder than that. 1 750m lap and I couldn't open my hands. There were rumours of days in the summer when wetsuits weren't needed but I didn't see it!

Tri2O opens 21 April me thinks. And i swam a couple of times last year when its was 22 degrees...very nice, but a dim memory at the moment!!

Just bought myself a TT, hoping it will give me more then long enough time to get used to it before the outlaw.

Rode about 30 miles today, followed by a nearly 3 mile run.  First real long training day of my Ironplan so far.  Crazy weather here.  It was 22C today but the weather guys just posted a winter weather advisory for the overnight hours.  

Tim:  I picked up Fears Unnamed. It was rather a random pick.  It will be next on my list after I finish up the King book.  The used book store I was in had several of your books, all for the right price too, so I'll probably be back for more later.

i guess thats why there are so many of them (not that i would know being my first iron distance event)

How long does it take on average to get used to the TT position. I've been practicing with clip on bars on my road bike but i'm only up to about 1hr on them.

All depends on your flexibility and if the bike has been correctly fitted to you, once it is fitted then it should be relatively comfortable (although I rarely use mine) it gives you a change of body position .. that said if its an out n out TT bike you dont have many options

TB:  I used a run/walk strategy to ease into aero bars.  Rode say a mile in aero, a mile sitting up, etc.  My last iron distance event, I went 5 miles in aero, 1 mile sitting up (did my eating and such while sitting up) for the entire 112 miles.
