A place for us slower people to foster some mutual support and self belief
Or Soup picked up too many sandbagging tips from Kanga before he left?

Not bothered about swimathon.
Sorry to hear your news Andy. Always a difficult decision (as i know too well) but sounds like a sensible one. Enjoy Venice.
Bad news, but ultimately you don't want to do any longer term or permanant damage.
Recover well, and give 'em hell in Venice
Unlucly Andy, tough calll hopefully well made.
All advice welcome!
Time to get this thread back on a positive note I think. Come on - tell us some training success stories. How is it going for the rest of the gang? No more injuries allowed from now on.
In fact I'll start even though I'm out of it (the Vit still awaits).
I had a brilliant swim the other day. I've started to work on my breathing and its made a whole heap of difference so that when I turn to breathe I now feel myself still gliding forwards instead of slowing down or even stopping. My teacher told me to dip my head very slightly (feels odd) which means that I look directly to the side rather than behind me like I've been doing for years without realising it. And I turn to breathe a bit earlier now which gives me time to get a relaxed breath rather than a rushed gulp. 800m never felt easier. I love my swimming lessons.
Positive #1: I ran Frimley Lodge Parkrun as part of my LSR today. It was nice to see the scenary for once, and take in the atmosphere rather than feeling like I was going to vomit. Way slower than PB, but sub 25 minutes.
Positive #2: Yesterday I had a coached session at the pool. A few things to work on, but all good feedback.
Positive#3: First sportive tomorrow. Looking forward to eating vast amounts.
