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.

Barry- what you say makes feel very old now...gulp. Any ideas what's causing the hip problem? My hip is an ongoing problem and seems to flare up when I use a bike or spin. I have some stretches that help a bit . Only another couple of weeks to your taper. Looking good
AA- sort out that entry! The pace will return..do some ykws. Any wins at Ascot?No plans for a marathon but want to keep my endurance ticking over so doing a few LRs . In a bit of a race wasteland at the moment . You don't look like your slacking to me
20 on Friday - was tough and a ykw on Saturday. Faster than last week even with the LR in my legs. 14th overall and 1st in age group again. 42 miles last week after 46 the week before. Busy this week so may struggle to train much

Quiet here

Done some swimming and watt biking and 2 runs whilst in London. Difficult weaving in and out of the crowds and stopping and starting crossing roads. Still enjoyed taking in the sights and running along the river and around some parks. 17miles done over 2 days. 

Paid for my gfa place. Done yours AA?

Barry- pretty good going there after your HIM. If I can get a GFA next year that will take me to 60 which is a frightening thought. You've just started in comparison. I'm not around much August so would struggle with getting to the Cotswalds
AA-get that application in
Got my GFA acceptance today
Swam and ran a short way yesterday . In danger of my CNBA winning today

AA-you'll renew your GFA in October no probs. Know what you mean about aching body and I had the weekend off

Gutted, just  found out I am home when Liverpool Tri takes place but its full .I have sent off my GFA application so hope I got it right

Did a watt bike session and a 6 mile run yesterday.Might swim or run tonight.

AA-my daughter loved what she saw of Exeter and its just like her to go for a Uni 250 miles away. As you will have seen I'm resting my running legs. Hmm that tri is 4th Sept so could fit in...pity its so far away.Your bike riding looks pretty good to me.Even the run in an IM seems too much after my Liverpool experience.Only 16 weeks to October? Where has the year gone?

Barry/Chick-maybe the choppy water keeps your body higher in the water to reduce the resistance a bit too?

Barry-yes 6 weeks left, so that's 3 weeks to taper . Looks like the next 3 will be tough for you. Spoke to a girl doing IM Bolton who is expecting to walk a lot of the marathon.

An hour on the Watt bike, 3 mile run to swim club and then swim club yesterday. Think I lost most of the weight I put on this weekend.

AA-with a bit of luck you'll run that hammy problem out of your leg but take care.Nice bike ride and splash.

Barry-re the swim...maybe you peaked for Outlaw a few days too early or was it that you had to run part of the latter?Great tri training especially that epic bike ride-how did you feel after?

A swim and 10k run Thursday, 26 mile bike ride Friday nothing this weekend apart from 2 six hour marathons-if you can call  drives???(crawl more like) to Exeter and back visiting the Uni there....did have some nice walks along the Devon coast too

AA-The disgrace of being beaten into third by those characters must have been overwhelming.You're having a lot of fun with your new watch. The race on Sunday was a stark and brutal reminder that a marathon can really test what you're made of.

Bro-very pleased to see you PB that 5k, it was only a matter of time. You will get faster.Your training is a great advert for the theory that lots of easy running over time gets you faster. 10k next?. Know of any 10ks in London next Tues when I'm there?Did I see you mention an Autumn marathon?

Barry-The beer was much appreciated especially the free one after the race-in the Sunshine listening to Cast -all part of the RnR experience. Didn't want much though.How many weeks to the big one? 

2k swim yesterday-4x500m-felt tired and 20m on the new Watt bike in the gym today.Might have a jog tomorrow.Feel a bit lost as nothing booked apart from a 10k at the end of the month.
