cant help there other than taking echinacea to try an prevent them in the 1st place, my hacking cough was asthma!

on an upbeat note my achilles tear has healed enough for me  to cycle and use the elipticle trainer (sub for running sessions) so game on Fink!!!

I'm spending the first week of Fink at a hotel with a superb gym and nice pool, in a moment of madness  I signed up to do a spin class at 06:30 tomorrow morning so no rest day for me.

good luck all you Finkers, enjoy the training and I hope all of you with injuries / illness are soon recovered.

RP - Yay! 

EP - Ulcers at this time in the term is normal. Its been a long term. Don't be a martyr, and take time off work. You will not get a medal for going in when you're ill, and at this point in the term your defences are low anyway. Don't train when you're chesty ...

EP - In May I changed my diet to eat much less grains and mostly veg and fruit with plenty of protein. Obviously I have to eat enough starch to keep up with training (ran 3 marathons over the summer) but it was much less than normal.

As a result I have found myself much less susceptable to the sore throats that I would get with the too little sleep/too much work that is norm in my life. Energy level is higher too.

I'm not sure that everyone would agree, but it has helped me.

Outlaw training is a good way to lose weight. Towards the end I was having 4 or 5 meals a day and snacking almost non-stop, and still struggled to maintain a constant weight.

Cat.i have always gained weight training for ironman.i even gained for the double........i think somepeople like myself think oh good i'm doing so much training i will lose weight but them overcompensate big time.... big brekkie before goingout on the bike.eat whilst out and thena big meal to refuel.then add some treatsbecause i have been so good  doing a long bike.and before you know it you are stuffing yourself silly..

so my advise to those who have a little problem with the weight.....just keep track and be sensible...........

Week 1 and very hungry, but do need to lost a bit of weight.  I think its the swimming that's making me hungry.

Day 3 another swim and will run tonight.

Will I ever get used to these early mornings.

Are you drinking enough TL? I've learned that a lot of my hunger pangs are actually thirst, especially after I've been swimming - either that or I'm drinking carbohydrated water!!

12/12/2012 at 19:13

That could be it as I also had a bit of a headache today.  OK will try and drink more water.

Hope trainings going well for everyone.
