SS - The swimmers cold, bunged up nose etc is not uncommon. I use BECONASE, a hayfever relief spray, a couple of squirts an hour or so prior to the swim and you should be fine. You can buy Beconase from a chemist or supermarket.  

Why would you want to put steroids up your nose before every swim?

Hello Pixie.  I hope I can pop onto this thread from time to time. I have been following you all as you train.  I am doing Fink for Austria so I am 1 or 2 weeks ahead in the training plan but essentially doing the same stuff.    Just going off to do the run with the Z4 bits now.... been procrastinating for the last hour trying to put it off.

... still sat at my computer............

I am definitely up there with the best of them at procrastinating!! Today I have brought my kit into work so that I can get changed before getting home, and then when I do get home I am not going to go in the house so can't sit in front of the computer reading this forum

pixie..i don't chnage from first thing in the morning until the end of the day....there really isbn't that much time to waste.......socks stay the same..everything.......you need to stop thingnking of wetwipes and total changes each time......unless you are a speedy then you have to get used to running in wet or dirty kit........you won't care on the day i assure you

Procrastinating? Hmmm. I might give that a go tomorrow....

You know you want to EP!

Slow week for me. Right shin flared up the other day so I am wrapped in cotton wool.

I am still thinking bike shorts on the bike, change into running shorts - just because in my last race (oly) the pad (trisuit) gave me wicked chaffing on the run.  Socks and bra will just have to stay wet - at least that way if skin is taken off by the bra - you won't really know about it till the end of the day

 

I am the queen of transition though - super quick.

Pixie I plan to change socks and shorts and remember vasaline is my best friend!
Brit I'm running Grantham half, but will be up your neck of the woods for Scunthorpe half and Humber bridge half as these are part of the club series and a good excuse to go to my parents for Sunday lunch after!

I swam in a rash vest & trunks + wetsuit. Got changed into monaco tri shorts and long socks for the bike. Then for the run changed socks and shorts (to runners' short shorts).

Waaay to much time in T1 and T2.

I wouldn't spend so long in T1 or T2

I'd probably stick to the same shorts, but throw a pair of running shorts in T2 bag just incase. Same with socks. The rash vest meant my neck didn't chafe, so if that could be sorted I'd swim in the monaco too.

Great effort, RP - trying to build back up the running miles for my mara in Apr, so up at 5 for 8.75 miles this morning, and a full 3k swim set after work.

Dead sleepy now, mind!

Swam the full distance yesterday though my arms were really aching after an hour.

2.5 hour run this morning. Not looking forward to my long bike on sunday. Might make it a bit shorter under the pretext of being around at home in case I'm needed to help with dinner

Wait and see what the weather is really like , if it's awful Turbo it.

Brcik session done this morning and 45 min run at lunch time which gave work colleagues a good giggle as my face is bright red. i could audition for the enw MArvel movie the Red Skull, wouldn't need any make up!
