Hi Guys, 

Apologies if you feel it was a spam post. I had saved this thread weeks ago and had been meaning to reply and get involved for quite a while now but never had the time. My intentions are to get involved with the threads and to help people who have mental challenges with regards to training for and competing with triathlons. I feel the best way to get to know you all is by introducing myself and give my opinion on your original post. I believe this is an open forum where the intention is to help each other reach your triathlon goals and support each others questions. Again apologies if you feel it was a spam post and would be happy to get to know you all moving forward.

Evening Ironfriends 

whats been occuring then? Still in India, only 16 days to go, cant wait to come home. Exercise has diminished into heading a football in the pool with some colleagues, in between drinking beer at the weekend. Weekday is just eat, work, sleep. 

by the time i get home i'll be starting from fatman again i think, bit disapointed in myself to be honest. 

i think my plan going forwards will be building the running back up, fancy going down the ultra route now. We'll see what happens.

hope everyone is well.

Great to hear from you SD, at least your neck muscles will be finely toned from all that ball-heading!  Have a good last couple of weeks in India.  

I've put on half a stone since Ironman, still exercising but also still nursing this knee issue, off to see doctor next week hoping for a referral to NHS physio, MRI etc.  Pain in the arse.  Knee.  Whatever.

I like your supporter criteria Raf.

Been for a wee run this morning, just 3 miles (not that any of my runs have been very much longer than that lately  ), and really enjoyed it. 9:28 m/m, which is a boost for morale as I expected to do my usual 10:00.  It really is all in my heid

How many times Melds? Keep away from the 'puter when you've been on the Babycham. 

Where are you running?
