Ours spend most of the year in a drawer, but every Christmas we get them out and use them to decorate our Christmas tree. We put lights on and then just hang all the medals on and because all the ribbons are different colours, it looks really good. It's also a way of reminding ourselves of what we've achieved.
No problem Jamie. He's done 13 in total (not counting ironman and ultra distance stuff - didn't seem to suffer in those) and he had this issue in 12 of them. It must be something to do with the changes to his training and diet - that's the only thing it could be.
Good luck going forward - I hope you can get it sorted.
On Saturday I went for a bike ride with my other half (using the roads) and as we were going through the town centre, which I might add is one of these 'shared spaces' where everyone's supposed to give way to everyone and live in harmony...etc. As we approached the roundabout a motorist deliberately steered into my path to stop me passing and I was forced to bunny hop onto the pavement (albeit the edge and no threat to any pedestrians - it's a very wide pavement..) to avoid a collision with his front passenger wing!! Why would someone do this? There was plenty of room for both of us on the road..... Can't understand why someone would be such a bellend!!!!!
For clarity, the length of time I was on the pavement was approx. 30 seconds, until I got past the aforementioned bellend. So, am I in contravention of rule 54 or whatever it is?!!???
