I went out in the rain yesterday EP. My husband said not to as weather was horrible but I did because I worry about what the weather will be like on the day. This is England after all

I don't know what the weather's like where you live but I'd opt for no 2

My advice if its just sloshing down and not icy is to get out and ride get them wet weather skills up it could be raining on race day

About 50 minutes in teh pool today, 2100m.

I know its well under what Fink is wanting right now, but bugge rme it was about the best swim session I've had. Ever.

Guess it shows what a good coach can do.

Very happy to feel goood about swimming again, and i didn't feel battered at the end. I might just survive until the run after all

Really want a self pitying moan, but will leave it at that was a crap week of training! Legs felt heavy on the runs, no swimming due to work and binned this morning's bike after 75 minutes on the turbo as I knew my girls were playing in the house and I hadn't seen them in 3 days!

Anyone joining me in the wussy corner or are you all going to compound my misery with tales of 100mile bike rides in glorious sun with tailwinds the entire way?

Write it up, learn from it and move on. It is now behind you so keep lookind forward. Over on the shorter tri thread we've been discussing family and training. Its never easy!

wouldn't dream of it (it was headwinds the entire way)  Don't blame you for taking time off with your daughters though, got to be done sometimes,, I'm glad its getting lighter mornings as didn't feel so bad heading off this morning knowing rest of family would still be in bad for at least half my ride.

Pixie, I moved where I am now about the same time and also have trouble working out routes that avoid the major roads, wish I was back where I grew up when it comes to working out cycle routes. been on a few nice rides with tri club but can never remember the route when Im on my own.

Early and i mean early mornings is the way, with a family plus the roads are quiet lovely i used to get back and showered from a long bike and my bunch were just getting up

EP thats commitment! Same for me when IM training weekdays alarms set for 4:30 at the latest to get a sesh in before work not IMing this year so i get to lay in till 5:30
09/03/2013 at 16:30

OMG I feel ill just thinking about the times you set your alarms for.

Bike route sorted for tomorrow. Cut short because I feel I am going to be needed to supervise my mothers day meal

09/03/2013 at 18:03
Same here, 5:30 every morning. Have snapped out of my funk now. Truth be told I don't think 1 and 1/2 bottles of red helped last night.

Tomorrow is another day and I WILL have a purposeful 1:15 run!

I have my first ever bike event tomorrow.a 10 mile TT..........nervous and excited..............hoping i feel good for it and the bike behaves........not sure what to expect but would love to get as close to 30 mins as I can....

cleaned the bike for the first time in a couple of years.......will try and cycle home from the venue to get in some more miles

Stanners, your problem could probably be resolved by rounding up to whole bottles rather than dealing in halves. You've upset the wine gods!

Enjoy the TT Seren. You'll need a good warm up first - ride the course is it's a 10 miler? Don't go out too hard, use the first couple of minutes to settle in, the hammer it

Good luck Seren

afternoon....my TT was amazing....the wind was so strong...........first 5 miles i blew down the dual carriageway..turned around for the uphill stretch back and was straight into a headwind..

everyone....was a few minutes slower 3 or 4 in most cases for the race...so i was really pleased with my 32:38 

 but then changed my mind about cycling home..it would have been into that headwind most of my way....

 i will start training properely again from tomorrow

Well done EP and Seren tough sessions for the mental bank
