It's mind numbing isn't it .., I think the most I've managed in terms of pool laps is 120 .

In other news .. My achilles problem .. Isn't.. Seems it's a muscle tear in the lower calf .. Couple of weeks off running and I'm allowed to try it out on some short runs

I have found a programed swim sessions really helps keep the boredom down

ie today i had
warm up 200m
8 * 50 m fast
3 * 400m cruise
8 * 50m fast
400m cool down

As a result I am not there to swim 2600m, but only the next 400m.   Makes it a lot more bearable.

My latest knee issue looks to be way overtight quads pulling the kneecap in places it should not be.   time to get the roller out

Symptoms of over-training:

  • irritable;
  • bad tempered;
  • constantly tired...

Yep, sounds like you're over trained!!

50 miles is more than a start ... thats good mileage at this time of the year, keep them ticking over for the next few months and you'll be laughing

Well I ran on Monday for the fist time in 5 weeks - managed a whole 1km before I had to stop due to the pain. Physio now thinks I've torn my Fibularis longus muscle or its detached itself from the bone. He rcommends an MRI to determine which - which I would need to pay for (there goes the new Garmin fund ) - but I have titanium plate in the my head, which is OK for the MRI, but the screws might be alloy - which isn't!!

But on the bright side - my swimming's improving!!

It is a bit of a pain - my running was going so well - stormed a PB at Bristol half, getting a time which is almost acceptable to quote in terms of minutes only, then put in my second best time at Windsor a week later, then got out of bed the next day and couldn't walk!  But as long as its healed this side of Crimbo, I'm not going to worry! Just concentrate on biking and swimming till then

Same here Rafiki, got a foot prob that I'm hoping will be ok if I lay off the running hopefully no longer than Jan 1st

Hour turbo tonight. Sweat pissing outta me!

Just remember its just a jog to the Finish

So no running until T-10 is fine ( i hope)

Still no running for me after my knee rebelled. No biking either fora week or so to let things calm down

Its hard to go easy.

Hi all, new to the forum so just introducing myself.  Completed several ironmans, dead slow but love them and the humour with fellow athletes.  Doing Lanza, going from  Thursday to Thursday and staying at Club La Santa with friends.  Anyone doing South Africa Ironman in April?

Train well and safe ..
