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 / CatI 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 onLikewise 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.
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
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.
I used to use Sudocrem. Probably is it leaches out the shorts. Not a good look with balck shorts
amazing..I am on a second rest day in a row trying to recover from the long turbo........have an 8 mile race tomorrow if the weather has improved
22.5 miles a hour is going at a good speed.......I have never got anywhere near that unless going downhill
2 1/2 hour turbo. 45 miles done whilst watching Pulp Fiction
Need to get running tomorrow, adn catch up with Jantastic things.
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
