Nell -  Welcome back.

kiwi - make the most of the heat, run to perceived effort and enjoy, then reap the benefits when it cools down.

Yeah nice in the pool this afternoon, my physio was in swimming, he's qualified for the triathlon world champs next month for his age group, I was taking the piss as for some reason he was by himself in the slow lane.  I was going to jump in the fast lane, which was empty, but thought that would tempt fate and lead to a bad session.  All good I even managed 3 lengths sort of continuous with a tiny break at the end of each length.

kfc -  Sounds great, even if tough, fun.

2old -  I hear you, but only doing 3 runs a week one has got to be a hard effort,  avg was about 15 seconds slower than normal so in the heat about right.

Speaking of hot runs, 10 miles done this afternoon at 7:49 avg.

Healing vibes to the injured.

Cooks  - Good running, maybe they thought you were really sweaty.

2old -  Speedy recovery, take it easy, but knowing you that will be ignored, I need a pacer a Abo and I'm not going to keep up with Cooks.

DD - Enjoy.

My weekly quick run yesterday, 6 miles with middle 4 quick, splits for quick 6:33,6:40,6:45,6:34, hot and they were hard work,  at the end of 4th I had a short sit down on the pavement and I must have looked a wreck as a passing woman asked  if I was OK. 1 hour in the pool and this afternoon, much better idea than running in this heat.

2old - Rubbish news, rest and get it sorted, need you at Abo.

Chick - Good long run,seem to think you're not marathoning this autumn have you got any HM planned?

Minni - Good to hear from you even though you are having a shit time of it.  Hope you have a speedy recovery and get a diagnosis for the hip.  Nice target for next year..  Keep posting as we seem to have lost our flock.  No tri for me this year but hopefully good for next year.

Swimming club on Friday and lanes mixed up, Pink ended up in my lane, think the coach did it on purpose,  but Pink not happy.  The first full session for me with the rest of the lanes, no more "baby" lane for me and found it hard but enjoyable.  Rest day yesterday and an easy 13 mile bike ride this afternoon "coaching" Pink.

2old - Hope the return to running goes well, not too far.

Chick - well done on the 13.

10 miles slow for me on Wednesday afternoon at 7:50 avg - pretty warm, hour in the pool yesterday very cooling out of the heat and out early this morning for a slow 20 at 8:26 avg, first time wearing the camelback this year and definitely needed it. Swimming club tonight then off to Blackpool for the weekend for dad's 80th, couple of days rest for the legs(which I think they need).

2old - Mighty impressed by your swimming enjoy the celebrations.  No niggles for me but with my history no doubt something will go mid September about 4 or 5 weeks before Abo.

Kiwi - Very good running from you, I reckon you will peak perfectly for Abingdon.

Chick - Belated congrats for sunday, what's it like to have a world beating football team.  None of the English players would get into your team, very sad for English football.

13 mile blast on the bike yesterday and 6 miles with middle 4 quick this afternoon very hot and was feeling it splits for the quick 6:16, 6:39,6:43,6:24.

kfc - enjoy, maybe run up Ventoux for a bit of hill work.

Swimming went well Friday, as did second club session yesterday, bit concerned I would be up to speed but all good.  15 miles slow this morning in 2 hours ,legs a bit tired after previous days efforts, then another hour in the pool this afternoon, loving it.

2old - Shit news, back caused by the cycling?

Cooks/Col -  Go smash the parkrun or go there smashed.

No training for me yesterday due to over 12 hour shift at work, but making up for it today, this afternoon 13 mile blast on bike at just under 18mph(best avg yet) and then 3 miles on the tready and swimming club tonight.

Not a great day for me, even though I have n't got Froome, need some mountain stages.

2old - Yup, bought a tready earlier this year mainly for the winter but youngest has been using it a lot.  First time on it yesterday, due to it hammering it down outside, don't think it's calibrated as 8 min miles seemed a lot quicker or maybe me just tired. Good training from you, back sore from the bike?

Another hour in the pool this afternoon, Long session but not a long distance covered..  Came 13th in Sunday's HM but 5th in age group, why is the V40 cat so competitive? Can't wait til i'm 50.
