Training for a shorter Tri

Posted: 01/02/2016 at 11:39

Still no running but I'm slowly getting into the swim/bike routine. Actually had a n entire lane pretty much to myself on Saturday. Have switched back to my original local pool as it's cheaper and I'm enjoying it more than the punch ups at the uber pool.

Tubeless tyres

Posted: 29/01/2016 at 10:55

I'm still running the Bontrager tubeless system, on my last long training ride I got 6 punctures of the course of 6 hours. 3 in each wheel, the last was the most entertaining as it was front wheel and first I knew was a fountain of glue spraying up in my face as I was on the tri bars at the time! 

Answer to fix all of them was to just keep pedaling and I checked when I got home and I'd dropped 20psi in each tyre due to the punctures so was sitting a 80psi in each so fine to ride on still. 3 were due to thorns 2 small flints and the 6th i have no idea. 

The bike and I did need a good wash to remove all the copydex like glue from us.

I did put on new tyres after that which again wasn't that easy but its been fine for Barcelona IM bike and the following months with no issues.

Still pleased with my choice, 6 punctures no need to stop

Swam this morning and actually enjoyed it, in a public pool too! Magic must remeber this for the rest of the years sessions where the usual getting swum over/into stuck behind people not wanting to get wet hair resumes...

 

I must stretch as I'm hyper mobile so the amount of pressure/bend required to stretch my quads (which are the cause of the issue) would be far too much for poor ikkle knees to take. Just kneeling will have me swearing at the moment. I do get to play at being super man on the foam roller though and am becoming queen of wall sits , which again I have to do with a prop under my heels other wise I just stretch my achilles which is not the point. I should have been a contortionist not a triathlete...

Hi all, looks like everyone is doing well.

 

My knees are still shot so no running but stomach issues are calming down now I'm on a very restricted diet. So some swimming and turbo sessions achieved and I might just be back in the game

Knees are a work in progress with fortnightly physio, tape, acupuncture and shock wave treatments.

Neither knee cap tracks properly long term bone issue, and because they're both inflamed and swollen it's worse than ever. Not sure what started it all off (can't have been Barcelona  ) but as fast as it calms down I pop one again by doing something extreme like walking downstairs...

Turbo sessions are now with trainer road on virtual power, had to do one where you decrease your power but increase your cadence. Yeah right that's like trying to pat your head and rub your tummy at the same time! I think I just about got it right one try out of 5! Good fun though and that hour on the turbo flew by.

New Triathlon Rules for 2016

Judging by the run attire at barcelona last year I would say sport top does equal sports bra where Ironman are concerned.

I ran this morning, well 10 mins of run walk but it's a star. All thanks to my lovely physio who also does acupuncture and did something to give me some energy yesterday. After months of feeling shite I'm actually happy and awake and have energy today   Fantastic I was really starting to get quite down about it all.

What is this business with a second Outlaw Half? Anyone have underground information on when/where?

Its out in the sticks in Holkham Hall in North Norfolk. 

Quick check shows not a lot of accommodation nearby. Nearest Premier Inn is 30 miles away.

Not camping? It's a nice place honest
