Then again, I think you probably look more like a proper triathlete if you wear a trisuit!
I think on the day no matter what we wear we shall all look a complete wreck when we cross the finish line, I just wear what I do so as it compresses where it needs compressing!.
Decided at 6pm to run home last night, had not eaten much, no stopwatch just my trainers and found at t shirt and pair of shorts in my drawer (dont ask!). Steady 15 miles with an almghty downpour as I crossed Westminster Bridge, just 2 miles in, which left me frozen. Kept having to think of this is how I may be feeling on the day as the enless stream of buses passed me, probably wth most people looking thinking "what the hell is that soft sod doing in the rain".
To top the cold theme and doing a 40 mile bike, 2 mile lake swim and a 40 mile bike on Saturday and the weather is not looking good.
My training partner is doing Lanza Ironman this Sunday (27 degrees!), he flew out last Sunday and has only just got his bike due to an Airline "misshap". Not the happiest of chaps this week.!
Physio tonight to yank me around a bit and make sure all the bits are working!
Morning all, sorry my last couple of posts didnt seem to make it on here
Been battling with my calf problem, but I think (im not going to say it though). Seems like we are all surviving in a fashion, Im having a leg massage this Thursday and preparing for the pain, didnt do much at the weekend and Im sure it did me the world of good.
Got an email about 70% offers for ironman clothing and got the tri top in medium, lets just say its snug!!!!!!. Im sure large would have been too big, but you never know what size your going to get.
Going to look for a middle distance race in June/July but may be too late.
Swam this morning and by the looks of the weather down here will swim home again on the bike, will it ever warm up!
For me its speedos and tri suit under wetsuit then thrown on a cycling top (depending on the weather) I tend to always wear one though as it has pockets for the esentials on the bike. I also run in my tri suit and it has bedding in nicely by that stage. A bit of extra compression on the thighs helps (oh er mrs!). I have to wear socks on the bike and run so half a bucket of tlc, you will see me on raqce day as there will be a cloud of Johnsons hoovering over my bike.
im resting up this weekend, cant now feel whther my calf is hurting through an injury or whether its ice burns!!!!. Physio tomorrow and the scary thing is its the same injury which I have had over the last 3 years I think and i have called him and my injury cropped up in Jan & Apr 2010, Jan and July 2011, Jan and Apr 2012 and this year Jan and it actually went in April!!!!!!!. Scary!!
Happy training everyone, I shall be back soon, I can always swim in the lake, now theres a thought!
