Cake I'm slightly concerned by the guy in the middle of your photo behind those on stage, is he wearing anything? Could be a little gross for those still at floor level!

If I ever moan about bad luck remind me that I used it all up this weekend.

Straight into town at 11am on Saturday parked in the best car park no problem and the shops had everything I needed to buy in stock.
Then yesterday out to the cinema complex with kids and my parents, got parked Ok again. First restaurant we tried has a free table for 6 and  Dads meal actually arrived as ordered and he liked it, none of us could remember the last time this happened   Got good seats in the cinema enjoyed the film no hecklers and the kids behaved.

One of those miraculous family weekend where everything went right and everyone had a good time.  You can cancel Christmas now I take the weekend we just had instead.

Perhaps it was Karma for my oven breaking down last Christmas day?

Training for a shorter Tri

Still limping from a coached turbo session on Tuesday evening, no damage done just used muscles that I don't usually.  Swimming last night an yay 1 thing I can do right  is kick as I have very flexible ankles.  Shame it only account for 5% of propulsion.

I'm definitely in the off season and hibernation and weight gain are both going great guns. Somewhat terrified of what I will have to do to get back on the wagon and a severe lack of interest currently but I'm hoping time will sort that issue out.

I'm managing to stick with a turbo and a swim each week but running still eludes me.

I vote alternative three currently although if the titanium frame becomes an option at some point well...

Hope you get in, fingers firmly crossed.

Another fan of pork over crackling here, although I feel that may be influenced by completed ineptitude at cooking crackling.

I've gone back in time and am now shredding for the next 30 days, I forgot how much it hurts. M&Ms are helping .

My max heart rate was worked out as 220 - my age and then tested with a few park runs and it seems right. I can go back over 3 years of Garmin data and never gone higher.

I've done a few run coached sessions and technique workshops and have got orthotics to help with my funky legs. My run actions is now considered OK with what I have to work with.

It could well  be I lack run fitness as although I've done a several tris from sprint to middle distance this year I have suffered from glass leg syndrome so run training hasn't been what it should have been.

But I have been running for 3 years now and can happily do 7 miles without issue so I find it frustrating that 2 miles still has me in Z3 plus not matter how slow I go.

I tried with just running and not worrying about the zones this year and my runs have all been an average of Z3 +

Really need to try and sort it out before I go long next year.
