I've just booked the days off so I can stay for the Sunday this time
Oh yeah booking time of at work might be an idea
the sunday is the race isn't it......you need to stay for the party on monday and then go home tuesday
Yes it's the Monday that I've booked so I don't have to leave before the party this time although fingers crossed my car doens't break down at the last moment this time. Colurin' and Steve Ho were nearly missing a swimmer!
* waits impatiently for reserve list to open.....*
I've not been in here much as it reminds me I need to do training ... but now it's the New Yr and all, time to get down to it.
*waves at everyone*
So what are the numbers looking like for this year, is it going to beat the amount of yellow last year!
I thought I saw about 30 at least early on and hopefully there will have been more before it sold out. It was very yellow last year , I will be there again but for the first time in the yellow and black when my kit arrives in a few days!!!!!! thanks in advance kit fairy!
Just back from a 3000m pool swim. Todays training done. As I'm feeling so virtuous and pleased with myself I think I'll reward myself with a cold beer
Im back again IP, this time sub 12.30 is on the horizon, couldnt resist the constant waves on the run course. Really pulled me through
I think the numbers were around 40 signed up as psof + a few more I know that didn't sign up as pirates
Waiting on the first waitlist offer email - ill be in like flynn and then its just going to be train ones ass off time!
email is expected anytime now......
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?
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 ...
I've been peaky all over christmas, have'nt trained and have mysteriously lost all my aches and pains!
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.
