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.
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.
JUST got the email from Outlaw - a place is mine as soon as I pay in the morning !
thats a fun summer then....
section 8 incarceration. ( for my own good no doubt )
