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.

Did a 2 mile run round Pune at 8:30 this morning, still really hot. Wont be doing it again unless i can get up earlier. 

It did provide some early morning entertainment for the locals though, seeing a white boy in orange trianglia vest running up the road.

Good update SD. I wasn't in to running when I was in India some years ago with work.

Probably just aswell. I was either in the bar, at work or on the toilet. It wasn't the best experience. I also didn't see any of India other than what went past in the taxi. Good for you for getting out there and doing it.

You should message GoldenBoots. He is also in India for a few more weeks; unsure where though.

3hrs midweek Gaz?

Im being good cat, restricting bars to Friday & Saturday. Spent a lot of the first week on the toilet, things have settled down now though

Been to see the doc this morning - a sick line for work and a cocktail of drugs   So no running or biking for me for a wee while. I may manage some time in the pool but I have to drive to get there, which is one of the (many) things my back is objecting to.

Haha, talking about poo isnt taboo here mate, lol.

Bit bloody quiet around here lately.

Well, after 10 days of forced inactivity I managed a whole 20 minutes in the pool this morning.  It wasn't pretty, but it's done my head a lot of good even if my body isn't so sure!

I was doing some exercises for my back this morning when I felt and heard a 'click'.  No idea what's moved, but I can now stand up straight

Nursey, hope the back's feeling better soon.

Cheers Scribe, seems to be on the mend.  I have drugs and malt whisky, so I'll be just fine

Yes it has gone quiet - I think we're all knackered after our various IM shenanigans.

I'm either coming down with a cold (most likely) or having a severe reaction to the cholrine in the pool last night as my sinuses are on fire and I've got a sore throat *sniffle* 

can I have some of the drugs and whisky Nursey, kill or cure 'n'all that

On the sickie front, I have a very snotty pregnant OH and an even worse toddler. Thankfully I seem to be ok although given I seem to be handling half of my body weight in damp tissues, it can't last.

On the training front, yesterday I started the build towards IM Copenhagen. Fun times!

25/09/2013 at 23:14

1hr 20 with run club tonight, 20 mins warm up, 30 mins of climb up a 30% hill and jig 400m to recover then 20 mins back..

Morning All,

Sorry not about much, this time of year is manic at work with the new student intake. Hope everyone is well and training good.

I had my longest run since injury with a steady 5 miler yesterday, felt great. Really enjoying training at the moment with no pressure and no short term goal

27/09/2013 at 15:09

managed my longest sim ver.

3.8km in 1hr39 ( 50m not registered and 7mins of waiting )


thats me able to make it through the easy part and out onto the bike inside cutoff.

chuffed actuallly. not bad for a fat lad? who hadnt swum in 20yrs this time las year.

lots too do - getting to 112miles in one go on a bike is going to take a while.


ready to repair the treadmill deck over the weeknd and aiming at the aquathon event in november as my anniversary race .... aiming to complete this time without mangaling my ankle this time.

Good swimming Sgt

Went for a wee run yesterday to see whether my back was up to training again,  and it went ok. Still a bit stiff (and far too slow) but feels good to have done it.  Thought I'd try the bike today.  Only did 9 miles, but my back was not very happy at all for the last couple.  Feels ok again now that I've stopped.  I think I'll leave the bike for the  rest of this week and try getting back in the saddle after the weekend.

I'm going clay pigeon shooting on Saturday for the first time, and it's something I've wanted to try for years.  Other than getting shot, I wonder what bizarre injuries I could pick up?
