For those not yet up to IM
have you signed up to any tris yet silver? welcome to the forum
Hello, can I join in? Just signed up for the Crystal Palace Sprint Tri in May.
Although I'd class myself as having no intention to ever do the mad IM thang, rather than "not yet up to it".
well done on signing up! sounds like a lovely tri , what date is it on?
I'll bring me Yaktrax to keep me from slithering down the slippery slope. But I can't imagine doing anything beyond Olly.
CPT is on 22nd May.
I did the London Sprint Tri in 2008. My swimming was a minor disahster, but it was ok thereafter. But then I got back problems and became a fat slob. So I'm losing weight and just starting to regain fitness. I only started running again a couple of weeks ago, so I've got a way to go to feel comfortable even with Sprint distances.
Well the bright blue cast is off! but in its place is a removable splint.
Told no swimming or driving my car for at least another month.
Amazingly NHS has got me a physio appointment for Monday, as need to start some mobilisation. Pain went back up a level so have popped a stronger painkiller, no doubt will end up zonked out shortly.
Oh well will at least be able to get in the fresh air for a jog on Sunday.
Make sure you don't take your strong pain killer before your run else your be asleep in a hedge somewhere lol. I'm sure your be fighting fit soon keep up the good work running and spinning, when's your next event?
Duathlon at Goodwood 10th April, then Ladies novice super sprint tri at East Grinstead 15 May.
Thanks for wise words, feeling a bit wobbly so going to have a quick lay down on the bed where its safe.
ST - they have codeine in, so they work well killing pain but sends me to sleep for about half to one hour each time.
Feeling better now, had a nap, going out this evening with 2 running friends haven't seen them for ages so plenty of orange juice for me and a nice meal. Since the break I have had to be on the wagon, will convince self that it will do me good.
Edit - earlier post - no swimming until end of March, doctors orders.
Welcome to ST, Yersinia and Steve! Great to have you join us.
Steady - good to hear that the cast is off, but about the increase in pain. Ouch! Hope you have a good evening tonight though.
I had a lovely couple of days away. I was my birthday. Tomorrow I celebrate with the family and have made my very favouritist cake - parsnip and maple syrup.
Well after two days rest I was really happy to get out today. Was rather busy so had to get creative. I work for the National Childbirth Trust so my little girl frequently comes with me. Since the sun was shining she said she wanted to go out on the bike provided she had her mini hot water bottle stuffed down her snowsuit. So this afternoon my bike ride was on the town bike with Smidge going to the baby group and then school run. Then did a 4 mile run.
As much as I admire those doing an full Ironman and even a half, I just don't see how i could ever fit the training in to accomplish it. Shall stick with my current goals at present of a duathlon, sprint tri and Olly tri by July. Remembering last Summer's 6 week holiday I'm not sure that I would even been in good enough shape to do a tri in September. It was so difficult to find time to run and I frequently ended up going out at 9 or 10 at night.
Hi ST - Mmmm, it is very nice especially with a mascarpone cream in the middle. ( I *really* like baking)
Yes, I do manage to train most days. It tends to be short though. Very rarely can I fit in more than an hour. But because my hubby's work is so flexible and he is really supportive, providing I'm really organised with having dinner planned I can usually squeeze it in at 5pm as soon as he has finished work.
Yes, I know the thrill of running medals. Can't wait to say I've done a tri!
