Have to admit that I double dipped in that tub Cat.  I'm sure I returned the favour by passing you a handful of cashew nuts that you gladly acceted .

Oh how the karma has treated me now .

Don't worry VT'd. I needed the salt

EP sorry to hear about your dad. Keep your chin up and support him where you can.

Week 8 for me Thu sesh nailed that horrible 100+ RPM on the turbo this morning and swim #1 again tonight. The 12 x 100 @ 20 secs really started to bite. I'm still averaging 50 mins for the whole sessions but hopefully my stroke is improving. Sometimes it all starts to feel bang on and then next length feels tough again. Weird.

I 'might' even put the bike back on the road this weekend. The forecast suggests the snow and ice will be gone but replaced by wind which is sub-optimal (Chrissie's favourite word, aside from maybe 'smiles').

EP / Seren / Cat
I use 'chamois creme' aka bum butter for all long rides and turbos.
The lube effect helps massivley to prevent chaffage - no one wants that!
I dont bother applying it to the chammy/seat pad, I just stick my shorts on then get a couple of finger fulls of chammy creme and lube up - if you know what I mean.
Font and back or where ever the hell you ge sore.

Its so useful I have a pot in my t1 bag - and slap a wad on
Likewise a poy of vaseline in the t2 bag to lube up for the run.  same thing - dip deep and lube!

glad to be of help

cheap vaseline is so much cheaper than chamois creme...............with the added bonus that you get a nice shiny seat......

But yes you can get used to it with the right trishorts.......still impressed that the only place that didn't hurt after the double bike leg was my undercarriage.........and that was without any lubricant at all

Seren, you are hard as nails!

Swim swum this morning.  50 zombie minutes in the pool, 70 lengths.


25/01/2013 at 14:10

missed my swim this morning so that equals NO swimming at all this week!!! have rejigged diary to fit in 3 sessions next week to make up for my tardiness.  All i have to do now is motivate myself to GTFU and into the pool.  Why is it so much easier to run or bike first thing in the day than go swimming????

On the bright side, just done a 1 hour run in Z2 and covered 7.2 miles which for me is pretty good

In my opinion which isn't worth much Jammy.if you have to ditch some sesions then swimming is the best to miss.....,but then i'm biased

25/01/2013 at 16:04

woo hoo . thanks Seren! feel slightly less guilty than before now.

A much better looking week for me this week except I haven't run yet. My YakTrax arrived today so might give them a gentle test out in the dark tonight.

25/01/2013 at 18:13
100% for this week, including 15k this morning. Now spending the evening dreading the 2.5h turbo session which starts at 6:30am tomorrow. Damn this weather!!!!
25/01/2013 at 21:42
Yay 1 1/4hr run fine in the dark, snow and ice without any problems. Courtesy of Alpkit and Yaktrax. I'm feeling rather pleased with myself.

I used to use Sudocrem. Probably is it leaches out the shorts. Not a good look with balck shorts

So come on, who has joined the 2h.30m turbo club. Managed to average 27kmph and kept aero position for 30 minutes at a time, followed by 10 minutes upright. The last 45min were pure torture.

Decided to do it with the film Gladiator on. Potable DVD batteries ran out at 2h:15m mark. Anyone know how the film ends as i dont think i could put myself through that again?

Didn't manage 2 1/2 hours as I had to pick the kids up, but did 44.5 miles in 2 hours, so really happy with that! (Watched loads of episodes of 24)

22.5 miles a hour is going at a good speed.......I have never got anywhere near that unless going downhill

Seren I put it down to peddling fast as it was fast and furious episodes! I hope it's not just a one off

you realise that 22.5mph average equates to a 5 hour bike split, which would put you as the first placed female and in around the top 10 of the blokes as well. i think you would beat Sandy by about half hour at least
