Hope everyone's training is going well. Has everyone decided on their main event(s) for next year?

I've started a blog (yeah, another triathlon blog!) so that my non-tri friends and family can keep tabs of how my training is going and such. If anyone would like a look, happy reading

Has anybody here experienced a painful blood blister on their toe(s)? I've never really had any blisters from running, but after my half marathon on Sunday I have a huge blood blister on the side of my big toe.

Anyone know the best way to treat this, or is it best to just leave it be?

Budgie this is probably not the best way to deal with it but if it was me I would pop it make sure it's clean and stick a dressing/plaster on it.

A good soak in the bed works wonder's althrough might sting when the water touch's the blister at first.

Thanks Cake, it worked a treat! It wasn't the most pleasant of things, but at least it's healing now.

Morning all, hope everyone is well.

Afternoon all

Ticking over here North of t'Wall.  Out on the bike for an hour on Monday; 6 slow 'n' easy miles run yesterday; off to the pool today.

Next year I"ve got the Outlaw swim and Loch Ness marathon.  All I need now is a sportive and I'll have a deconstructed ironman.

 Just realised bed should have been bath. Dyslexic boy strikes again.

Well training has been terrible of late as this dam work stuff keeps getting in the way - bloody clients!!

And a certain loveable mutt has squandered my new Boardman Road Air 9.2s fund on her bloody vet bills!! In fact her bill is more than the bike ..... but what can you do!!

So ... you in town Monday night?

Ironman Wales for me next year, also signed up for Long Course weekend, Outlaw Half, a sportive in April and a 50k MTB race in March!

Training is pretty casual right now, just enjoying myself and having a bit of fun.  If swimming with tri club can be called fun...

Still waiting for a physio/MRI appointment for my knee, it's been feeling weird, stiff for a while.  Just started gentle running again and it's not too bad, but something's still not right.

Looking forward to seeing Sossige selling us coffee at events soon!
