Barry- amazing. You deserve that IM title, all that hard work paid off nicely. Next one will be easier and faster ! Sorry I didn't wish you good luck as for some reason I thought it was next week.
Enjoying a bit of sun and sangria - first run for a week today . 7m on the beach. Golf next.

AA-you have lots of time to knock off that pb! A wattbike is just a very expensive exercise bike the way I use it.

10k on tired legs last night finishing, after a warm up mile, at an av of 7.23mm.

Barry/AA-is there a good YouTube video that shows how to change tyre quickly? I don't even take a pump with me on the rare occasions I go out-but I do take a phone so I can be rescued

AA-gatorskin?You'll have animal rights after you.Not sure if 85 or 128 sounds 'great' to me but after my 'ultra' on Sunday I am open to anything now.

Talking of riding-did just over an hour on the wattbike today creating a pond of sweat around me.

AA-annoying and stupid...it was the 4th of 6 laps! I was too busy concentrating on the pools of water .Looks like you had your stupid moment too falling off.Never had a puncture and wouldnt know what to do if I did.Will the 85 miles be laps or one long course which would be much better?

2k swim and a jog with the dog yesterday-feeling DOMS today

Barry- probably the best call to save the run to the race. I bet you'll be able to run through the hip issue though it might be ugly after missing so many runs. You will do it. And yes I did do a race though I didn't race it as such.
Did the Lions Bridge Trail Marathon in Tyldsley near Manchestertoday. It was around parkland and trails on a recovered coal mine comprising 6 undulating laps of just over 4 .4 miles each.The paths were potholed and muddy and full of water from the days of rain in the area. Anyway started off well but after going round the half in about 1.40 the heat and surface took its toll. Then in the 15th mile I missed a sign and detoured up a hill for a mile or so there and back. After that I relaxed and enjoyed the experience chatting to other runners and splashing in the mud and pools of water . I noted doing 26.2 in 3.28 which was fine but I had more to do and finished the race running 27.6 miles in 3.40. Very friendly event , low key, well supported ,relatively close to home and inexpensive .I will have to do more of these . My longest run ever too!

AA- good on you pulling yourself together and completing that swim - it's easy to let the panics get the better of you. Glad the elbow is ok as you are going to have your hands full. Impressed you are thinking of another HIM. I think an Olly is a step too far though the Salford tri at the end of the month is tempting. As far as this weekend is concerned I'm undecided -HM or 10k both on a trail. My right ankle is a bit sore so it may be academic anyway.
Swam 2.5k slowly yesterday and ran 7.5 today av 7.15mm -6.5 between 7mm and 7.18mm. Now worrying about my ankle .

AA-night swim is fun in a pool by the Med but in a pond near Reading ? Not for me though I have done it in Windermere . Good Strava stuff this weekend
Barry - hope the hip fixes , you don't need that nagging you in the back of your mind. Think you're more than ticking over but I guess you need that decent run
Training took a back seat for me due to school meetings , motorway frustration and anniversary. Still managed some decent walks in the Lakes to compensate for the overindulgence and then 10 miles this evening at 7.35mm AV. ,37 miles for the week. I'm looking for a race for next weekend

Barry-I'm sure you'll find a way to join the fun in London. Yes, seriously, maybe you do need to speed up some-not a lot- miles and open the hip a bit -I feel better after a few faster miles until the hip tightens again overnight. That was an epic week no wonder you felt some twinges , your taper cant be long off.

AA-Great mixed bag of training this week and pleased to see that your hammy is beginning to behave. Any races planned?Don't suppose swimming caused the elbow problem.I have a shoulder issue but it was caused throwing a ball for our dog....he needs to go.

Chick-fingers crossed for your check up-we need you back here.You would love tris .Give them a go.

43 miles run last week making 140 for the month at an  av. 7.33mm. No long run as work and life got in the way.Did the ykw on Saturday-20.14 , 2nd in age group, 11th overall. Gutted-will have to miss the 10k race planned for Thursday as  I have a meeting with teachers then.

AA- the marathon was 3 weeks ago so I should be just about recovered ...maybe not. Good to see I'll have company next year in London - Bro? Barry?- and well done with the wins . England did enough and Wales exceeded expectations so Im very happy. 

Barry- storming swim today. Very strong. 

Recovery day yesterday in the country in Cheshire. Swim at lunch time today-struggling a bit with a pull in my right shoulder. Nice 12 mile run tonight some of which  along the local canal. 7.27 mm average including 2 warm up miles.
