Hip not great I'm afraid (hence the absence).
My running has been severely curtailed - nothing on the road, struggling on the tready - just a smattering in the muddy woods.
Bike is going well though.
I'm pretty sure that 2017 will be my last year with any running in it at all.
Have a few events lined up to have as a finale and then hanging up my trainers.
Anyway, that's not very xmas cheery is it!?
On the positive side I'll be donning a GB age group vest for the ITU world swim/bike champs in Canada and again for the European iron distance champs in Holland. Looking forward to that
Nice target Birch and speedy early morning stuff from Gul and Leslie
Hmm, bad run last night. Decided to do a tempo effort to the top of the fell and felt quite good but just as I hit the turnaround point the hip seized up and was really quite sore - reduced me to a walk on the way back down. I think I pushed it a bit too much too soon.
Back in the pool for the first time in months this morning for the tri club coached beasting session. I was promptly spat out the back of the group I was swimming with and was nearly lapped on one of the sets. Hard, hard effort and shows how much work I need to do to get back to "indoor form"
Welcome back CC and VTr and welcome to the thread for SEdan.
Not much going on here, 6th place in a 79mile bike race at the weekend and only 90s off 3rd spot - bit galling as 4th and 5th place riders sucked ny back wheel between miles 60 and 78.5 without taking a turn which isn't particularly good etiquette but hey ho
Still swim running early in the morning - the first swim leg is becoming rather refreshing!
Out on the fells this evening for a jog round with my (impeccably behaved) pooch. As for the pacing debate, it will be slow....
