Today for me...

- An easy paced, but lumpy 35min run

- 90mins spinning, then
- 60mins tempo run

Both nipples were bleeding by the end of session ... They are now officially sore

right, my turn for some woe! I have hardly swum since I had a bad ache in my shoulder after Embrunman last August. I went swimming two weeks ago and my shoulder ached for a week afterwards. Went this monday and did about 40 lengths and it is extremely painful again.
Worried that this might be an injury which will put paid to long distance triathlon for me.
I am a crap swimmer but never thought it would be swimming which might put me out of the game.
it certainly cant be an overuse injury!

Slim ... Go and see a physio now ... Don't put off .. Just do it ... They may fix you in a session or two ...

Yep .. do it!

Have you ever had anyone look at your stroke underwater Slim? Once you have the injury sorted you need to find out if there's anything in your stroke causing the problem.

It's seeing a physio that keeps me going ... A few years back I was told by the NHS that I would not be able to continue ... At times I find mysel using sticks .. But I never say die ...

Slim it may be as simple as some stretches or rolling around on a tennis ball.  It might not be life threatening.

Today is my rest day.  I shall be taking full advantage and going to bed soon.

managed a hard set of intervals last night, cycled pre dawn today and will swim at lunch. Team TT tomorrow which may be hilarious as we have never ridden together, have no tactics and will probably all end up in different places.

Seeing my physio keeps me going.... she's  gorgious

It may be good old swimmers shoulder i used to get it on the right side afew things i did aggravated it thumb entry rather than fingertips and pulling/ sculling outwards on the start of my stroke. I have also always been strong in the leg area and weak as pee in the top area i now chuck in 25 x 4 press up every morning whilst getting dressed and that has really strenghtened that area plusa good sports massage at lest once a month when IM training keeps me in one peice
Sea swim for me tonight its gonna be a chiller

Sea swim?? Yikes RB its going to have to warm up a bit for me to
get in the sea!
I really learned to enjoy ow swimming last year and I'm quite looking forward to it again when it warms up.
Turbo done. Sometimes it's hard to get going early but I managed to get th hr where it was meant to be with a bit of help from MTV! I listen to stuff in the turbo I would never listen to at any other time lol!
Swim club this evening.

Today is a bit of as recovery day for me as i have a long meeting today followed by the long journey North ...


Weight training session before work ... mainly 10-by-10s and super sets

Set off on the bike this morning in modest fog, then turned round and came home five minutes later, as it was too dense to be safe.

I'm really bad at making up for setbacks in planned training, so that might be it for me today!

Sore throat, headache, temperature and a chest cough for me...
Had a day off yesterday - Scrapped the planned 5 hr ride and long run today

Not the end of the world but I feeling sorry for myself

However, got the steerer tube cut down on the tri bike, finished taping the bars and took it for its first ride.
It's called Jason after the Argonautes

Need to start a bike porn thread....
