Sorry to hear everyone is having a tough time of it at the moment. If it helps I think we all are! Just for various reasons.
I need more OW swims as I've not done the distance OW yet and i'mso slow but the cold water isn't helping.
Had a good bike on Friday though and a good for me run on Saturday so that was a confidence boost.
Had my bike refit and I need to test it out but I think they've solved my niggles. I forgot I moved the saddle, badly it would seem sot hat may solve the shoulder pains and I had my left cleat adjusted to give my heal more kick out room which should mean less strain on that knee/ITB.
If I can get a decent length swim in OW I'll feel set for the half and then there's a few weeks to kick it up a notch ready for the full.
Have decided no more alcohol before the half for me as that messes up my sleep as well as my training.
Also decide if I have to skip something I'll skip a short week day session and just make sure I do the longer weekend ones.
Not sure this will help but I've found that sitting on the side dangling my toes in OW actually makes me feel colder especially my feet. I find it best to hop in and keep your feet that bit warmer on the bottom of the lake. I try not to think about what it actually is that's keeping my feet warm.
