2old - Good you are hitting the swim hard, are you doing any long swim races this year.
Same same for me, I've done a couple more 3 mile runs and I think it's getting better but still same ache after . Good training day yesterday managed 1200m continuous in the lake not quick by any standards but very happy with it, then 26 miles on the bike and swim club in the afternoon. Meant to be doing 2nd sprint pool tri next weekend but will decide later this week.
2old - Great result on the tri. Kudos on your training.
AA - Thinking about Maidenhead but resisting entering until fully back running. Nice speedy repeats and impressive swimming.
Nell - Good news on foot feeling better and nice quick stuff even with the dogs.
Test run yesterday, 3 miles with eldest daughter, no pain in hip but did n't feel right and dull ache afterwards. Not sure if that means still an issue or just because first time running in a while. May run again tomorrow depends how it feels in morning. Otherwise lots of swimming strength and core work.
2old - Not sure what caused injury, knowing me over training, actual injury according to physio was problem with piriformus irritating sciatic nerve. Good luck for tomorrow.
Chick - Good to see service returned to normal with you back on your big miles.
oompa - Mars trained sounds impressive, good luck for your race.
AA - Take it easy, when's your next race, are you triing during the summer?
In the lake again yesterday evening, just 5 x 200m loops with breaks but OK and managed a bit of sighting, maybe it's me but it does n't feel that cold. Saw physio yesterday afternoon and he had given me some dynamic exercises to do test injury and if all good going to try a run next week.
Oompa- Your speed with come back. Lake swim and back in again this Friday hopefully.
Brol - Getting close for you, your training and racing has been perfect, it's going to be an amazing experience. Interesting about the gym sessions helping you cope better, how do you fit them in, on easy run or rest days?
AA - I'm managing to fit in some strength and core work, probably due to more available time due to no running, but determined to try and keep doing them, trying to get some upper strength to help swimming and hopefully make legs bit more injury proof.
2old - Good training from you as ever and throwing in a long run.
O4S - Taking it easy as ever. One nasty hill that's me out then.
Still no running from me, lots of other stuff so coping OK. Fingers crossed back running next week.
AA - Thanks for the offer, might have to pop down M4 and see you.
Oompa - Nice YKW, speed will come.
2old - Always seems to be windy on the bike. Pain is deep in right bum, feel it most after sitting down or bending over, and can feel it when walking not pain just tight.
O4S - Tempted by Bristol to Bath for the Autumn but maybe a bit hilly for me.
Injury is getting better but going to give it another week at least before attempting run.
First OW swim on Friday evening. Did n't feel that cold but wetsuit felt tight on chest when breathing, managed 2 x 200m and 1 x400m loops with stops and my directional/sighting skills need some(a lot) of work but happy enough with first go. 34 miles round trip on bike this morning to 10k race I was meant to be doing, supported daughter and boyfriend who both did well in their first 10k, with following the race over 40 miles rode and leg OK.
