well after Lanza, that Henley bike course should be a breeze!

Raf - that isn't very comforting. Well done, great result in Lanza.

cheers ST - swim and bike went well but blew the run - but managed a 13:40 - something to aim to beat at Henley!!

Nice one Raf - you should be very pleased with yourself. I've cycled there the last couple of years and it's no walk in the park!

What is the weather forecast for the weekend? want to get a swim and a ride in - so may be out on the bike course on Sat if you want to meet up

I've got an Olly in 3 weeks - got get some training in!

Feeling a bit rough/down atm. Got a sore throat which is normally a pre-cursor for illness. Had a 75min run/walk today but felt crap pretty much all the way round. Foot pain still hasn't gone away and I can't swim because of my shoulder. And I've got a HIM next weekend, of which only the bike, am I remotely confident! Apart from that, everything's dandy.  Early bed and maybe even a couple of days off as I want to be fresh for a solid b/h weekend of training. 

I hope everyone else is doing better than GrumpyBadger here!

Raf it's gonna be nice on sat, we should meet up on sat if you wanna... Il be there from 9 onwards... Let me know you can have my number if ya want and just chuck us a text well go for a coffee after or something...

decent ride today, 45 miles so quite happy, had a massive headache so couldn't do the run ... However on the plus side I have bought myself a van... Mainly for work but really as a mobile bike workshop


oh and Rafi I'm swimming on Sunday at the lake... And Windsor will be fun! Hopefully in the same wave .. So I can slack and draft off you!

jamie - get back from Lanza tomorrow, so once get myself sorted l wiLl drop you a note and we can meet up at the weekend.

And the chances of us being in the same wave at Windsor are slim as  i'm almost twice your bloody age

GrumpyBagder - Couple of days off might be a good idea and then have a good weekend. Hope everything improves soon.

Raf - Listen to your body and don't do too much, whatever training you manage in the next 3 weeks is more likely to harm your result in the Oly than improve it. Short low heart rate sessions only is the standard advice for the first few weeks after a IM. Looking forward to catching up soon and hearing about the whole Lanza experience. You did amazingly well and I'm sure you will be much quicker at Henley with less hills and wind!

Jamie - planning some big mileage again, hope everything is going well.

I'm not swimming at the moment, my shoulder got worse after a stupid session at the gym but has improved since seeing the Physio yesterday. Maybe try a little swimming on Sunday or Monday, but until then adding to both run and bike sessions, so will be a good week for both of them.

23/05/2013 at 20:03

Cheers Scuba - you take care of that shoulder too mate. It's been about a week and a half since I last swam now but I do feel it's getting better. No swimming for me until Swashbuckler now - and then pray it holds up for the race.

Badger - my body's telling me to stop all this after race paertying and get back to training!! How many weeks till Henley??

But I am taking it easy - honest!

Jamie - I've got to work tomorrow, so will give bike ride a miss. Plus there's a race at the lake on Sunday - which I've been conned into marshalling, so don't think there's any normal swimming.

is that the tri20 lake at Reading your marshalling on Sunday Raf? I'm doing the 3.8k, if its anything like the only swim event I entered last year I will be the one that needs pointing in the right direction several times from the canoeists.
