I did nothing today .. and I shall do nothing tomorrow

Severely lacking in sleep this week due to the neighbours having a loft conversion 6 inches from my pillow

Strained knee ligament.  Not a bad strain, but no cycling and running for at least a week.  So no more big runs or rides before IM ... main aim now is to maintain fitness and not get fat.  And swim a lot.

Tim -

Youve done the training so you'll be OK - just focus on recovering from the injury and do nothing that puts that at risk

Worked for me. I did nothing for two weeks. Laid on the sofa as much as poss and ate junk food for two weeks. Ankle now better but my wetsuit no longer fits

Swam 2400m open water last night, 1 hour bike on Tuesday. 90 min ride planned this evening. Getting back on it now. Although i'm going to give the running a miss till next week just to be sure i'm not broken anymore

90 minute bike ride done last night, no dramas. 80 miler planned for tomorrow


Good luck to the Outlawer's this weekend. Will be nice and warm for you by the looks, dont forget your suncream !

Since I'll be spinning around the IMKY course tomorrow for most of the day and might not get on until late, good luck to the Outlaw-types.  The hay is in the barn, trust in your training.  You've put all the work in, now go enjoy the fruits of your labor.  

I was going to write something like:  let me be the first to say, "YOU are an IRONMAN!" but I suppose you become Outlaws on Sunday?

80 mile bike ride done @ a 15mph average, no ankle pain.  Pleased with that.

did start to struggle after 70 miles though, went through 5 gels, two bottles of drink & a pack of nutrigrain biscuits

Nice one mate!  Good to hear you're back training.  4 weeks from now....!  

I've had a weekend on food and booze, knee still a bit sore so waiting to see physio again on Wednesday.  Main concern now is that I'll pile on a stone in the next 4 weeks if I can't train, so tomorrow I start taking a LOT of care about what I eat.

IY, I will write a race report once I return to the land of the  living.  Right now I am zombieing!

Quick summary to keep you going: swam, biked, ran. It was hot. I cried. Pirates are awesome. I am an Outlaw

Fantastic Nursey, who wasnt going to do an Iron distant tri in 2014 

Well done.

Alibear gave it a great go but was pulled up at in the latter stages of the bike.
