UB I was going to whine that I wear gloves but that's a feeble excuse isn't it. Better stock up on some sharpies!

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.

If you can't write it on your hand attach a note to your handle bars somehow

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

I get the sniffles ... just buy more kleenex!

Todays 45mins run with 5min Z4 at 30mins was hard work. Legs felt heavy from the start. Rested Monday, brick only yesterday so not sure why I felt so dead .... last week was heavy but not at work so not got the normal on-feet-all-day tiredness. Oh well man up and get on with it.

Going home next weekend which means I won't be able to get my long bike in grrrrr

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.

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

nice one.

I was pondering whilst running ... ladies I know they say clean, fresh dry socks are essential for the run but what about a bra? It gets wet in the swim, sweaty on the bike ... do you change (quick freshen up with wet wipe?) before the run or just use T2 to change shoes/socks?

I only have 1 pirate top so won't change that, will probably change into bike shorts for the bike and tri shorts for the run so swim in bra an normal shorts? Oh I don't know! I can't see myself doing 112m in tri shorts as I'll be 8hrs and sore!

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 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 won't care on the day i assure you

Oh OK!!

I know I didn't change for my HIM and got blisters from wet socks (never get blisters) which was what made me think!

I'm also seriously worried about the fact I keep on having thoughts such as  .... Next time I will do X different in training. Which kind of makes my think my head is already assuming I will do this again!

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.

My legs were really tired yesterday on my brick and todays 45 min run was really hardwork even though my he and pace said I was fine.
Mentally fine but worried that I'm physically tired. Last week was a long one but felt ok at the time. Hope I didn't over do it.
