Well done VT ! Even with a bike fit you will still need to adjust even to the correct position so it may take a while for the aches to subside

OC ta and hope the MF clears up
Well yesterday was a patchy day out on the MTB with Cornish Digger who is getting over MF did some monster hills but i fell over by being a right jessie on a fairly easy path i was worrying about falling off and doing my hip/groin again but by worrying and tensing i fell over anyway no harm done tho
Today was great a beutiful cold crisp mornings run for a totally pain/niggle free hour and twenty minutes with Wilson the Mighty Iron Dog it was a real boost they mojo is strong again

. Have had chest infection for 2weeks and done NO training. After yestrdays MB ride felt as if I could actually manage to train for rirst time so entered local 10mile race.  1278ft of climbing and really struggled but happy to be running again.

2nd IM training is definately harder than 1st.  After this there will NOT be a 3rd.!!!!!!!!!!!!

Evening. Long bike today 4.5 hrs. I fear I have over compensated in the eating department though. Have just had a huge pizza for dinner.

Nice riding from you this weekend VT. You'll have no problems!

70m sportive this morning....felt OK, but as my garmin died on me I had no idea how far I'd gone....oddly this seemed to help (I didn't even know we'd finished until we turned into the last road).

Took about 5 hours, nutrition seemed to I'm ready for my first 100m in a fortnight.   Gulp!

Had a big day on Saturday with a hilly 5 hours on the bike and a 2 hour transition run, and as home just after noon.

Rested yesterday and was out early for a 45 minute run, then walked 45 minutes to work to warm down. Felt rough though today, full of cold.

Thanks M..ouse (you earned the dots so I'll use them).  I also had pizza.  My son was out, my wife eats as much as a budgie so I polished off the remaining 3/4.

Over the next two weekends I hope to push onto 90 miles and then hold that distance for a couple of weeks before pushing on again. 

Larne HM next Saturday and although I think I'm capable of 1:45, I am looking at a 80 mile bike the day after, so I'll probably pace myself round for anything sub 2.
