Rest day today. Woo Hoo. Going out for beers and curry tonight. So keeping to nutritional plan as well.
Got long run tomorrow and 3 hr bike Sunday (including local 25m TT).
Weeks training finished - hallelujah - rest day tomorrow then it all starts again.
One swim, one bike, two runs this week, and one killer I.T. band sports massage - bruised and battered with a 20 mile race (hah - race?!!) on Sunday.
I seem to get phantom injuries before races - this is the third time I have been in agony with an injury that came on with no trauma, makes walking really painful, and then, well the last two times (last year's 20 mile race and GNR this year) just disappeared, the evening before race day.
Hoping the hot poker pain I'm getting in my knee right now is another example and that come tomorrow evening I'll be right as rain again ...?
Feeling rather deflated - had planned a turbo session after work, but after a cr@p week at work slept instead -
I have thge weekend off as I'm taking my mother to my caravan to set it up ready for easter......if i take the food etc now then hopefully we can fit into one car when we go......
if i was going with my family i would take my running kit but as its my mother and its a wet weekend i won't bother......
just got 2 sessions in this week of running, swimming and cycling......but managed to get the important long bike and run in.......so not worrying
Well that was a bike ride from hell! Went out for a 70 miler and it rained for most of it, which in itself was ok but with about 20 miles to go the rain just came down so heavily that it was dangerous and I was so cold I couldn't move my fingers. Quite a hilly route and having put the bike in the small ring I then couldn't change it back again. Eventually had to use my right hand to lean over and grab the lever over.
By the time I got home I was in tears and couldn't get any clothes off because my hands were so numb. Was biting the fingers of my gloves to pull them off before realising I was biting my finger!! My mum had to help me undress
Needless to say my run straight after never happened.
BIG glass of wine tonight

SS..well done there.........I have had that with the hand and its not fun..........after my race Schmunkee had to help me undress........
those training rides really do make the difference come race day
and britsky great result 20 miles and still smiling......
Start of week 15 so half way there.
I've been a bit lax lately, don't know why, lack of motivation, overly tired with work and training, a bit down with the time of year as always happens. Found it really hard to find my mojo.
Work *should* be settling down again by the end of the next week or two, so less travel to far flung exotic places. I AM going to be trying hard to get my self out the door every day to hit the training ssssions. It may have to be more of the Get Round plan now, but we'll see.
Half way there. Bugger
Morning all. Last week was awful.
Lost mojo, really tired, coldy and sniffling and depressed with dad.
Saw dad yesterday and he should be around for a couple of years at least () so feeling a bit better. Went out today for the 45mins run with effort and HR was everywhere. Slowest run for 2mths almost. Loads of walking. HR up at the start (I ignored it thinking it was faffage and cold) but in the end I cut it short so did just over 30mins and no effort.
Hoping it's just the 2hr drive I did last night (mind you hubby (the charmer) did say I looked like s**t last night)
Half way there OMG!
Right must get to work - laters
Stanners - I think that you'll be fine, but they probably draw the line at full TT bike. I can check with the organisers and see if I can get a definite for you.
They had the same statement in teh Great Manchester Cycle last year, but I saw a fair few TT, tri bars, extensions and so on.
Pretty sure I saw someone riding a kilotogo event with a basket on teh front once, so tri bars can't be too bad
Which distance are you doing? What sort of time are you hoping for? I'm signed up for the middle distance, hoping to get to start in the first wave, then I can get back to help out at HQ, so I may see you even if its just handing over your goody bag at the end
