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

Evening all

Bad luck IY ... Hope you get better quick

Not a bad day for me ..

- 6k swim ... Done as 6 x 1000m ... Suffered a lot of bad cramp towards the end

Sorry to hear that IY.  

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

Cash or bank transfer is fine IY.





Hope you're soon on the mend

Well I'm having a sh!tty day today. last night get a phonecall from my uncle saying he's in hospital, has had some scans and they think he's got a brain tumour   I then had the joy of phoning my mum (his only sister) to pass on the message. Still in a state of shock and not knowing what's going on until more tests are run, etc so not the best of days here

physically getting better (managed 20 mins breaststroke swim last night), but mentaly a bit flat...

I hope everything turns out better for you than it sounds.

Aww Fraggle, I hope tomorrow brings better news for you

I did a 3hr mtb ride today and got more cold than a cold thing on a cold day in Iceland.   Enough already

Thanks for you kind words people - we have slightly better news today: scans have shown no other abnormalilites in the rest of his body, and now he's on steroids and the swelling has reduced, he's been released from hospital.Now awaiting a biopsy at Addenbrookes to see what it is, and take it from there. The doctors are apparently quite positive (or this could be him being economic with the truth!) so fingers crossed all round.


Training, still nothing here, but now I'm not driving around the uk this weekend, I'm free to get out and do some.
