Re-run of last year's thread for anybody doing any 2012 iron distance race
I've picked up my first cold for a couple of years and I had to drag myself through a heavy pool endurance session last night.
I CBA'd with my bike this morning but settled on a cycle to nowhere in particular, which clocked out at just over 42 miles by the time I turned into my street. The route took me along the North Antrim Coastline, past Royal Portrush GC and on beyond the Giants Causeway before turning inland and heading home. A beautiful, if overcast and slightly breezy morning.
Feel like shit now but I didn't actually feel too bad whilst on the bike and without my cold I could have undoubtedly clocked 80 miles. I checked my Garmin average speed and it read over 17mph which wasn't too bad for the route and the way I feel.

You do make me chuckle, Q.
Just waved my wife off for a training ride on my bike. I'm preparing to file it in the "no good will come of this" box.
Good luck woth the physio Mrs. SA. really hope you can get sorted and resume running. If not justr sorted and no back pain will be a winner.

Agreed. Now I really want a carbon bike and yours is too big. Lock your credit card up.

. I'd like to post on the Team MK site, as they're nearby, but I'm not a member.
Most clubs are happy to put something like this up on their sites even for non members - partly fellow feeling, partly because they know it could so easily be one of their members - I know our tri club has these alerts up on quite a regular basis (unfortunately) - worth asking anyway
hope something comes of it
First physio appointment this morning. Never thought a sports massage would hurt so much I had to apologise for swearing at one point. The Physio seems to think my back problem stems from poor stomach/pelvic floor muscles which is tilting the pelvis when i run and causing the compressed nerve. As i write this i am sat on a gym ball ! Very good for strengthening the stomach and pelvic muscles I was informed .
That's good (I think) Mrs SA isn't it?Were they able to give you any timeline on when you could expect to see improvement?
Max, did you say Sea-Swim??? Good grief, it's a bit early for me, it'll be another month before I brave the great outdoors for a sea swim!Legs feel good after this morning's massage but I'm enjoying my rest day. Have to do things like grocery shopping and throwing out anything that went green in the fridge while I was away this evening!
Orca - no unfortunately she didn't. Its a case of how longs a piece of string. She was very thorough and keen to get me out there running again though. Lets hope its weeks as opposed to months.
My next appointment is next Thursday and i have been asked to go for a run on the Wednesday night to "aggrevate" my sciatica. Sounds harsh, i know, but when i see her the next day obviously in some discomfort it will give her a point to work from (if that makes sense!!)
