Sorry Nursey and IY    I wouldn't wish 2 weeks missed training on anyone

Update:  seeing the doc at 15:00 local.  Can't really see out of my right eye.  I'm avoiding WebMD like the plague so as to not scare the piss out of myself.

Have any home remedies, Dr. Nurse? Or do I have to go see him to get a scrip?

Fraggle, am I right in thinking you had something viral last year for a couple of weeks?  I think we need to start planning these in !

A day of hills for me on the bike - Remenham Hill to Pilshill to Howe Hill to Aston Hill, puncture, to Ibstone Hill then home. Hard 60 miles, but felt good (and dry!!)

Get thee to the doctor IY

I am sorry to hear you guys are all feeling poorly... And fraggle I'm glad you feeling better. No training for me today (using as rest day) and will train tomorrow (thanks iron cat).

Conjunctivitis: if really bad you may need eye drops that you can get over the counter (usually chloramphenicol).
Take care

Dont know melds. It feels like ive got a knot in the inside of my calf muscles. Right leg is quite painfull. I had it before and managed to roll/massage it out after a few days.

I think its from running in those Newtons. I've got a new pair of my usual trainers now so will stick to them till after IM now i think.

Nursey wins the medical award.  Conjunctivitis, plus antibiotic for the sore throat and other maladies.  No swimming for a week which torpedos my tri on Sunday.  /cry

Sorry to hear that IY.  

Total training failure today (work, family stuff), and eaten crap.  Cue feelings of intense guilt.
