Morning all, I hiked up Snowdon and across to and over Cryb Goch on Saturday. 7 hours of hiking/scrambling and I am done in. I ache more than after any tri.
Also managed to rip the arse out of my leggings sliding down the scree! It definitely was an adventure Knee gave out on the descent so I quit at the first car check in, no regrets as the bit I did was Epic. But feel no desire to do it again!
Arms and shoulders are mullered from the scrambling and using my poles to take the weight coming down as my knee gave out. Knee feels pretty OK today though so no lasting damage. I just feel like a t-rex as I can't lift my arms and I have a very bruised derrière!
Ach well unfortunately I'm now both down and out. My knee cap won't hold up to more than 25 miles on the bike and it's just getting worse. So no racing for me this year and apart from Welsh 3000s this weekend (eep!) that's it for training for a while to give my knees a chance of recovering.
So lazy summer ahead, might risk a few dips in the lake when the weathers good. I have re-joined WW-ers which is where al this madness began as if I can shift some weight it will help the knees.
Sorry folks I'm out, my knee is just not holidng up.
Can't do more than 25 miles on the bike without aggravating it and add in zero run and that's it.

Just remember that if you do the training, the event is there for the taking....
The training just isn't happening this year so far, you would think having failed twice now I'd be doing all the training I can get, but no not this year. I'm hanging onto the fact my swim is faster and I need to get back on that bike. Knee issues mean I've have to get round in time to walk the marathon. I can do it and I will do it
