The Eirias was a tough event. Take it easy, Tenby is the goal.

Tried one legged squats today, would hae been funny to watch!

Not sure there would be a very big league table for one legegd squaters. Although much less pauinful than a timed 400m swim.

My core needs some serious work (just in case I do another)

I didnt find the 400 too bad ... perhaps I should try harder? 

One legged squats on the other hand ....   (or leg)

After spraining my bad ankle on friday playing football.. I have had to come to the decision that 2012 is a total wipeout in terms of running and triathlon.

Check this for a year... I think I should win some kind of worst season of the year award! These are only the events I had planned on entering and had paid for most of them

Feb:                 Ballbuster Duathlon - DNF
                         Saucony 10k - 35:09 (pb)
March:             Endurer Obstacle Race - DQ
April:                Thames Turbo Triathlon - DNS
                         London Marathon - DNS
May:                Thames Turbo Triathlon - DNF
                         Sheffield Half Marathon - DNS
July:                 Outlaw - DNF

(And most probably)

August:           Thames Turbo Triathlon - DNS
September:   Gunnersbury 10k - DNS
                        Ealing Half Marathon - DNS

Either that or a new ankle!! I have been so motivated this year which has been the annoying thing... and have been faster than I could have ever imagined I would be!

In. My experience tho football doesn't mix with triathlon very well ... To much of a chance of injury .

Have you been seeing a sports physio?

I sort of fell into triathlon from running which came after football as I was getting injured to much

The original injury was from running... well an obstacle race thing... that was in March. Then I have pretty much been living at the Physio until the Outlaw which was my first proper run since March... managed to get around 16 miles or so of that without too much pain but a lot of drugs

Then decided to play football last weekend as a one-off, it felt fairly ok... until I put pressure as I was running around and went down on it again... much more painful than last time

I am no longer with the physio, and dont plan on going back really... I just plan to get fat now over the next few months!!!

GB .. I have had numerous ankle issues over the years

Whilst you are out there counting the pennies you have lost and the beers you shouldnt have had you really really need to do some stability exercises, buy a wobble board or use a rolled up towel for starters and get some strength back in the ligaments and tendons
