I'm the other way round - I've got some sort of tennis elbow thing on my right arm which has been hanging around for a couple of months - I'm worried about putting too much load on it in swimming practice. Trouble is I've never swum further than 2K in my life, and want to actually hit the distance before Outlaw day so I'm not panicking on the day. Any advice welcome!
Its not stopping me biking and running, though, and those aren't going too badly - first century ride set for the Dare2B Cicle Sportive at Rutland Water an a few weeks time. Anyone else doing that one?
Booo - I know what you mean. Float kicking for me tends to leave me stuck in the middle of the length drifting gently sideways! My ten-year-old, of course, belts up and down doing it with no problem at all. Wonder if he fancies a dip in a rowing lake?!
I'm picking up at least one or two long Sportive to practice some longer rides, but entering and planning on riding on my own. It means that you get the food stops and support that we'll hopefully get in the iron events, but you still have to pace yourself and you'll have no-one to draft. Don't know if that's an option for you?
