Jamie, you're knocking out some impressive mileages and speeds. I don't suppose there's any connection?

50 mile bike/ 5.5 mile run brick session. The first time I've done one on the back of a serious bike distance. It went ok.
Bike was 17mph, run was 7:45m/m.
Dinner was demolished.

Thanks all for the support, don't forget Jamie is racing too.

Good luck Jamie!!!!!

Good Luck Rafiki too, hope you first IM goes well.

Nice Brick Blisters.

Managed 4:45-5:00 hours on the bike yesterday and 70-75miles not sure exactly as my Garmin 405 continues to play up GPS wont work and bike sensor give a very low speed/distance measurement.

I'm having issues with my shoulder and physio is booked for next week, might bring it forward if I can. I think it is a classic case of swimmers shoulder, I have a right side weakness which adds to the problem.

Off to the cricket today with a couple of friends and my half Kiwi other half so should be a fun day.

Yes, good luck to you Jamie too. Try not to brake the sound barrier on the bike leg OK? I have delicate ears.

Oh no Scubes not you too! I went to physio on Wednesday and he had another look at my shoulder. Seems I have biceps tendonitis There's a thickening and tenderness in the tendon and this is causing it to 'catch'/'click' on it's surroundings. I am on a self-imposed swimming ban now until it clears up as it's not getting any better whilst still swimming (despite a large decrease in volume) I am doing shoulder exercises every day to help sort it (concentrating on the external rotaters) Physio did some ultrasound on it to help speed recovery. This is all a bit of a bugger as Swashbuckler is rapidly approaching. I am forced to default back to my old mantra 'if in doubt, wing it'.

On the plus side, it means I can bike the $h1t out of the next couple of weeks!

Good to see Raf doing so will 7:08hr bike split now .

Jamie - Have great race tomorrow, Don't Be Shit.

Not a great days prep for my sprint tomorrow, hangover and tried after day at the cricket yesterday. On the way out of the house for a short brick I knock the back wheel and a spoke breaks. I took it to LBS and bloke had broken his fingers so didn't want to fiddle round with spokes so let me use a spare wheel he had around (better than mine) and will get spokes fixed by his assistant on Monday. As I'm riding, I slipped as I clipped in and smashed the pedal into my shin, cue blood and massive bruise. My mate from the club who was going to race as well has also dropped out. So I'm not really looking forward to a cold river swim and then getting on to the bike in wet stuff in the morning. God all I seem to have done this week is moan .

Hope everyone else is having a better time of it.

Faggle - I'm doing Nice Tri sprint in St Neots (Cambridgeshire), I'll let you know.

Having issues working out what to wear under wetsuit and what stuff to put in transition bag, I don't want to be cold but I also can see that getting layers on when wet is going to work well. Arm warmers and a buff might have to do, and maybe not wear my tri top under suit so I can put that on dry in transition. This may be the longest sprint tri transition ever.
