Easy week this week in prep for the Blaenavon Triathlon on Sunday.  And I think I've got my family's cold .... great feckin' timing.

Anyone know the best (most reasonable) place to pick up some PowerBar Bars and Powergels?  Want to try them out as they're being used at IMUK.

Tim, I've had good luck over here at least on Amazon.  Especially if you want a case of 24 or something like that.

I would check the usual WIggle/Chainreactioncycles et.c and keep an eye out for a deal ... they are usually around

QUick swim session for me today followed by a vet visit (not for me I hasten to add)

Early visit to bike shop tomorrow before tri on Sunday.  Moral of this tale: don't mess around with gears if you don't know what you're doing

Hope everyone's training is going well. Good luck for the tri tomorrow Tim!

Just joined the local tri club so I can do some open water training sessions. I found out last week that my current goggles are useless for open water (they're not tinted and can barely see out of them), has anyone got any suggestions for open water swimming goggles?

Had my Zoggs for over a year, best goggles ive ever had. Don't get any fogging issues either.


Good luck Tim.


(Note to self, keep Lebbon away from my bike pre Grafham & Bolton racers)

Thanks for the replies! Will give these Zoggs a go. They seem reasonably priced too which is always a bonus.

A recovery week for me last week ... but it was a poor one as i was about an hour under target  target was 12:20 i only managed 11:25 .. i fell short on swimming and cycling and went over on running (even though a chunk of it was vey slow)

Overall, at the end of week 9 i have done 126:21 training aganinst a target of 114:56

Comparing to previous years at this point ... last year I'd done 65:51 and 2011 (PB year) Id done 111.34


Going into thisa week im feeling a bit under the weather ... so will have to see how it goes ... but my targe is 14:05 with a big chunk comeing ftom the bike and a 14mile run

Good week Will, even though it was a knock back one. And if you're going to be a bit short it's best to do that on an easy week. Probably good with you feeling under the weather too.
