All training together! :-)

Trogs don't fall into the trap of thinking because others are doing this I must be doing something wrong.
Don't worry Cake, my problem is that I know exactly how little I can get away with doing in training and still drag myself to the finish line. I'd just like it to hurt a little less this time around
137days 12hrs 42mins to go!!

Thanks Chilibean.....the thought of double sessions is a bit daunting.First swim session tonight in a few weeks. I suffer from a reaction to the water which makes me feel awful for about 48 hours so I have been putting off getting back to it. I have been squirting beconaise spray up my nostrils morning and night for a week to see if it makes a difference. I really hope so.

Lasagna & garlic bread! No swimming.
Carb loading for the weekend!
I get the same problem from swimming. I'm snuffling now in fact and its not just chlorine cos I get it in ow too. I'm also a beconaise addict but run out.
I use it afterwards rather than before Saffers. Not sure if it makes any difference.
Out of desperation tonight I've just taken some antihistamine and I've got almost immediate relief.
Sorry, this is way off topic isn't it. But we haven't started propper yet have we?
Blimey - doesn't last for long does it? <snuffle sniff>
Beconaise on the shopping list tomorrow.

Too much swimming in there for me at the moment, did 17 miles on the bike yeserday at a steady pace and was ok,.... today the aching is back again despite the painkillers....... off to see the Physio in shortly so see what they think the problem is. The annoying thing is I want to get stuck into this training program but can't., I've not run for 3 weeks now and I'm itching to get out but don't want to do any more damage..
Saffers, Soup.......I have the same problem (snotty nose) but I put it down to the chlorine because when i swim in a different pool or OW swim I dont get the problem. Have you tried a nose clip, don't know if they work never tried one myself.
