4.5 mi in the Liechtenstein Alps. Up, then down, then flat, then up. Jelly legs at the end. I probably need to rest up again. On the plus side I'm discovering local beers that evaded me last couple of trips.

I can't get used to my training diary having so much white space. I'm happy to run recreationally, but CBA to swim. Biking is alright.

I like club swims, as it is brain off. Clashes with work travel though.

I was planning on Both

Cheers Guys, Number 1455

I've got a 5 mile race tomorrow, question is do I race it or jog round? It's number 3 in a series of 4, which if one particularly fast guy can't make the next two' I could be in with a chance of winning my age cat in the series.

Can you in all honesty *not* race it??

17/07/2012 at 21:55

If I'd stuck to my plans.. errrrm.... dreams for IM this year, I would have said not, but as I didn't, I can't see racing it making much difference now.

You make decision making so easy!  would you like to be my mentor/ trainer

My lovely wife has metioned the Little Woody on 3 occasions in the last few days (just in passing). So if you're reading this, Muffin and you'd like to go..... 1 x PASS OUT 

Not a good week so far for me. Needed a rest day Monday after a hard weekend, and yesterday's 4km swim turned into 2.5km because I couldn't swim in even a vaguely straight line and got fed up. As with every O/W swim, I spent the night sneezing, bunged-up and with a roaring temperature. Failed to set an early alarm today, so I'm behind the curve again.

Zip fell off my wetsuit last night, and it's touch and go whether I'll get my bike back in time for the race this weekend, after 2 weeks waiting for Ribble to deliver a new Mech Hanger. All told, I'm feeling pretty crumby. Think I may be on the receiving end of a bloody nose at The Eirias on Saturday .
