Barry-you'll be rattling with all those pills . The golf clubs can wait for you in the garage. Have a great HIM.
AA-Once you work out how to get the most out of your watch give me a crash course please. Shame about the hammy but at least you can try your watch in open water...see how straight you swim.
Ok so decided to do 26.2 and immediately after it went to 22c.Maybe not the best idea. Probably do it as a fun run and appreciate all the sights and music on the way

Bro- maybe Sunday-I've got until 1pm to decide .if I do it the Oly won't happen.  You don't have much luck with big events., not since NY anyway. Smash that pb tomorrow. 

7.5 on Weds -AV 7.12 pace.  Golf day yesterday and I won a prize for a nearest the pin competition- maybe it's time to change sports. 

Now to make a decision.

AA-Excellent watch choice-now you can follow Barry and I on Garmin Connect too..I like the step counter ..they can produce big numbers on city marathon days.I just switch indoor run on when on the TM then edit the title to say how far I went.I think a foot pod may make it more accurate.Same applies for the indoor bike though again I expect there are ways of getting an accurate measurement with another fitting for the pedal of some sort.Did you get the heart rate reader?Im thinking of getting one to do some heart rate training.Its a pity run fitness doesn't transfer neatly into cycling, I'm like you-out for the count after a full on bike session.Is cycling ideal for a dodgy hammy?Good sessions there

Bro-what are you feeding MrB?Sub 40 10k so easily,I'm not jealous either! That was a tough run today for you on top of all the other runs recently.It is time for a rest... are you tapering for a pb attempt on Saturday?

Wondering what to sign up for after Sunday.I fancy a go at an Olympic Distance Tri but am not sure I can blag my cycling for that distance-there's a couple in June-Deva Chester Tri and Conwy Tri. Need to swim and cycle more too which is a problem while I am tapering

Barry- I was having the same thought about Garmin Express. You are right about binning ykws though I can't help thinking the result is wrong. It can't be as this was an important race with red hot marshalling and rule enforcement .I will just have to take it. No wonder your hungry all the time. Some big training there.Are you upping your swim distance soon?Be careful to fuel correctly and don't forget that you may need iron supplements and extra protein. Are you tapering for the HIM or will it be part of your training schedule.
An easy recovery swim today for me

Hope everyone had a successful weekend of running,riding and swimming

Didn't do the YKW, still tired from travelling. Sundays Southport Sprint Tri was an enjoyable event.Another early start but that seems normal these days.Overall time 1.22.13. 2 mins slower than last time I did it in 2014 but the highlight was a 5k PB of 19.23.No idea how that happened.I messed up my switches on my Garmin so that didnt help me though I found myself in a mini race with another guy all the way round the run course and luckily out sprinted him at the end.I finished the swim 42nd,after the bike 56th(oh dear!) and the run 40th out of 210 and 9th out of 40 Supervets which I am now one of.Fortunately all the Uni athletes were in their own race

Carrot- interesting place to do intervals....an alternative to a track? I'm still avoiding intervals as I have a phobia to them ...well , to the risk of injury anyway. Keep the 10s coming
AA-you'll soon be knocking out 10s. No probs. Wish I stayed home to watch that game grrr .Look after your hammy. Not sure if you can say I'm tapering.
Bro- not only upping the miles but speedy stuff too. Looking forward to seeing it come together . Hopefully at Windsor.Good idea about Mr B. Tried it with Mrs 2O but got a very succinct response.
Finally returned home at 5am yesterday so decided training not a good idea.Just done 13miles at 7.21mm AV. Still bit jet lagged. Anyway may do ykw tomorrow but not expecting much and Southport Tri Sunday.Seen the start list ---full of semi pros from Loughborough and Leeds and other uni's . I'm there to
make up numbers . Wine tasting night tonight...not the best way to carb load.

Barry- jury still out for next week. Yesterday's LR made me ask if I want to do another marathon so soon.Decide next week. More solid training by you there. Improvements starting to show too as is deserved.
Geoff- there's also a new Garmin multi sport watch that looks very good. Nice 10
Some spinning swimming and a 5k TM on Monday followed by 18.4m yesterday 7.48mm AV. A rest ??? day today travelling to Basel to watch Liverpool meekly surrender in the second half of the Europa Cup. Now suffering flight delay home,adding insult to injury.

Carrot/Bro-is 10m the new trendy run?

Carrot-you are right all those months preparing for a marathon and then its spoilt by the weather-very annoying.Most of mine have been in perfect weather though a few bordered on getting too hot and one was just stupidly hot(-Chicago 2007 90f 80% humidity, race stopped for safety reasons on 4 hours).

Barry-If I'm a machine you are a turbo charged machine.That was a big weekend for you.Its strange how much easier it is to hit the wall on a bike-it is for me anyway.Better you learnt then than in the race.Maybe try some more solid food than gels?Not sure about the R&R races-I'm still weighing up the option of trying for that pb or doing the marathon-I will decide on the Thursday before.

AA-IM!!!!-you are crazy but its not unexpected from you and it has to be ticked off.Cant be bad being able to jump on a bike and do that long trek on Saturday.Good nutrition idea on Sunday though not sure Barry will be able to stop at a pub in his coming IM races

Bro-you are covering a lot of miles these weeks.

Didn't feel to good  latter part of week so gave theYKW a miss on Saturday and limited the weekend to 9 on Friday and 7 last night all under 7.30 mm pace, 42 for the week plus some swims and spinning.
