Don't worry your pretty little head Raf. I'll be cutting through that rowing lake like Jaws on speed.

There's no need to swim too quickly Nursey - don't want to have to rush my fry up now do I?

Good point Raf. I'd hate to get out of the water to find you didn't have time to cook my bacon just the way I like it

Nice falling Nurse, see you didn't manage to do that when you were running so you aren't as bad as you think - and I'm not impying you are cr*p at cycling either. We've all done it.

Got the all clear this week from the physio, and have ran back to back days without a problem. I'm on the little side road that leads to the main road, that in turn that leads to the (I)M6.

Nice one Holgs! You'll be back before you know it. Any idea of target event you are looking to target? 

Nursey we shave all been there. It seems I can go for months cyclingnon my own and not falling but as soon I try and stop at a junction where there are people around I seem to be attracted to the floor. Always highly embarrassing

Does scalding yourself in a post-swim sauna count as a training injury?

Blistered fingers - OUCH

Greetings from sunny India 

sure you will be back on top form soon Nursey. I think all of us have earnt a good break after this years achievements.

good news on the injury BossHolgs

Work over here is long days and very tiring. My hours are 12:30pm - 9:30pm. By the time ive got back to the hotel & had some dinner its nearly 10:30pm, so a bit of catching up with the family then bed.

ive not gone out for a run yet as im trying to work out the best route where i dont have to run on the road. The driving is crazy. That being said ive used the gym and pool for 30 minutes in the morning. First time ive swam without a wetsuit in a few months, found that hard work.

Anyway, now off for an evening at Hard Rock cafe Pune. Eat some solid food that will hopefully make me solid again 

take care.

just caught up with the thread

SD - hope things are going well in India

NR - I found my running really improved when I was training for a marathon, getting the longer distances in really improved my 10k time for example. Then  I went and hurt my knee - so make sure you build up slowly and carefully. Having said that, I think it was walking down a really steep mountain in Switzerland that hurt my knee but then the running agggravated it, rather than it being a running injury.

To help with the running work on your core and glutes.

Since I already have ripped abs and buns of steel, I reckon I'll have this running malarkey nailed in no time

20 min treadmill run & 300m swim this morning. Body clock nearly back on track so managed to wake up by 8:30am today. 

Hoping to go out for my first road run in Pune tomorrow.

Great results for Trianglia at the ITU this weekend.

Two Tri-Anglians on the men's 35-39 podium for the Olympic distance at the world champs - gold for Matt Ellis, bronze for Iain Robertson.

Great results indeed from your clubmates, SD

Rediscovering my running mojo has had to be put on hold as my back has other ideas. Am currently unable to stand up straight and can only lie down if in the foetal position. Luckily, it was hubby's birthday on Friday so some new bottles of malt have appeared, which should help to ease the pain

5k run sat, 1 mile swim Sunday, 13.3 Miruns low run today, beats my previous 9 milers. Legs are sore but 3 hr ride in the morn.

watched Tob in Kendal today, great finish
