Sounds likes it's going to be good again this year then

55 miles on bike for me today, long run tomorrow, don't know how long depends on if I have a happy knee or not.

3 hours on the bike this morning, despite tweaking hamstring during yesterdays long run.  Not happy.  I struggled with hamstrings most of last year but thought I had sorted it out.

Hamstrings are pesky buggers, have you tried sports massage on it?

06/01/2013 at 15:34

Sports massage, foam roller, more sports massage, rest.  Tried everything.  Best thing I found last year was quad guards, racing flats and shortening my stride.  This isn't full on hamstring, it's tendon behind/outside of my right knee where it joins the hamstring.  Had it before.  It will mend.  I can still run slowly and cycle so hey ho.

Unfortunately rest is sometimes the only cure ...

blimey, it's a bit early in teh schedule to be getting the injury bench out isn't it... and I can't talk either!  A bursa in my R knee flared yesterday and killed a scheduled run.  Today it appears to have subsided and I'm back in from some exploratory jogs/lunches and spints up and down the local hill.  Very odd.  I think I must have slept badly on it 2 nights ago...

Other than that how is everyone?  The christmas poundage will come off over the next month or so, (well it better had do)!  Anyone else treat themselves to new kit over Spendmas?

Got myself some new bike kit.  A vintage marino wool jersey and a new pair of warm bib tights.

I treat myself to new kit all the time so nothing there, the bank manager must love triathletes . Got the yellow and gold in the post yesterday, need to get down to racing weight now to do it proud and so I don't need to suck in the gut

Went to circuits for the first time last night, was quite fun, but the leisure centre looks like it is going to be busy for the next few weeks so not looking forward to having a busy pool for tonight's swim, bloody new years resolutions

BBT, My thoughts exactly, swimming pool has been a bloody nightmare since back to work, wish people would give up on the resolutions already. Guess good thing is it only takes 30 mins to clear so last half of the swim its back to the "normal" crowd who know each others pace and move out each other way.

I'm also awaiting new kit from the kit fairy and I'm sure i'll need to squeeze into it at first.

im back onthe horse Donner, training like its happening and then letting fate take care of it's own sh*t.  Outlaw FB mentions that the email is comming for waitlist ( again ). I wish theyd just get on with it . Ill need 6 months to get the OH to agree to spend 12 hours at the side of the road watching me suffer. ( she normally just tag teams with the offspring and  makes sure I suffer by the hour  )

brick tonight and another attempt at morning missery tomorrow. ( perhaps less candle at both ends might aid my emergence from the warm softness of a duvet at OH my god o'clock. )

ear improving slowly. might be back in the pool come february.
