Chick/O4S-thanks for the good wishes. Just got to get on with it. You are great examples of that 

O4S- I just read your work rate in wonder.What a machine. Pleased you are pushing through your issues too. 

Chick- you should get that sub 3.30. I'm a believer that big mileage can produce good times even if most are easy. My marathons this year didn't have any interval sessions just the odd 10k and a few  park runs. 

Barry- brilliant....outstanding in all departments. Everything went right for you -made up for you. How were you placed overall and in each discipline for your age. You will be up there. 

Went for a swim n the sea yesterday but too rough so gave a run a go and managed 5 miles bare foot on the beach.....last one 7.10 mm .Still stiff and sore in the calf .....possibly scar tissue to work through ....so , fwiw ,still have run at least once every week this year except the first when I was skiing. 

Feeling more positive.

AA- looks like my injury is going to get worse before it gets better. I rang about my GFA and was told they had all my info but there was a backlog. Expect your aches are  gone now 

Barry- bit envious of your TRI tomorrow just enjoy the experience. Lots of good mixed trainng by you. Try and draft in your swim it makes an incredible difference in time and effort Good luck tomorrow anyway 

physio checked her records and noted it was exactly a year since I last saw her. Wonder if I'll ever do over a year without injury? 

Decided to take it easy this week so apart from a swim today and Mon day that's it. Need to start trainng soon if I'm hoping to run in Lisbon

AA- thanks for the suggestions. Physio confirmed it's sciatica. Getting it to release is the next task. Not got my GFA yet and I think the 14 days are up tomorrow or Weds. Those circuits sound fun...not .  

Swim tonight including 10x50m sprints   . Garmin went mad and says I swam 4500 metres.... I wish .

AA-look after the calf..Im really struggling here. Must be good to be a talented swimmer....good long swim . What do you advise for sciatica causing calf spasms?

Barry-well done on an impressive first OW tri-they are fun arent they! The run is always a bit of a surprise after all thats gone before .You should be in good shape for Sunday..is it an Olly?

Seeing the physio today.

Nell- hope your hols are going well I'm ready for mine. Pretty fast run in that heat. 

This week I have been mainly swimming and spinning. Two short runs have been a disaster. Hope to see Physio next week. 

Good running and racing this weekend all. sadly I won't be joining  in the fun.

AA-welcome back and loooks like you timed your return perfectly. Good mix of stuff there and a plan for July I wish I could be confident in completing.

First non impact session today-40k on the exercise bike. Back to wearing calf compression and praying they do their job

Barry- nice going this weekend.Racing next week end?that was a good lesson in the need to fuel on the bike ready for the following run.  Have to smile at your comment ,together we might get one persons decent uninjured running for a year. Think I'm going to limit myself to non impact stuff for a couple of weeks.

Chick- didn't take you long to get back to 50 miles ,bet you're happy after your scare. Still suffering here. In London since Weds and had terrible lower back pain . Calf seemed better so tried a run today to try and release the back. All was going well until 3 miles when calf tightened up in the upper Achilles area and that was it...had to stop and laid up again. Think I'm going to have to be patient.
