2old - yeah always windy in Blackpool, up again Tuesday so look forward to another windy run.  Is there ever a time when both me and you are both uninjured, take it easy,  get yourself sorted for your autumn mara.

Chick - Well done on the 50 week.

Good weekend for me, yesterday  2k OW swim followed by 20 mile bike and hour swim club in the afternoon.  Today 36 mile bike ride followed by just under 5 mile  run, struggled a bit on the run, poor fueling methinks.

Chick - well done on the 10 must have been a day for them, see below.

2old - Take care with the calf, HM for fun?? yeah right.

Visit to Blackpool over the weekend, 10 windy miles on Sunday morning.  I've bitten the bullet, and in a moment of madness which I may regret, entered some tri's, OW sprint in a couple of weeks OW standard week after and HIM in august need to get some racing/experience in this year.

2old - Yeah nearly peaked to perfection this year just 10 days short. .  Looking at first OW tri in July, not sure about fast though, think this year will about getting practice and experience.   Careful with your back.

Hour in the pool this morning, 800m then 800m paddles then 400m fins and a few lengths warm down.  Just about to go out for a run.

Nell - Puts my problem into perspective, speedy recovery to your boy.  Nice pace on your ten.

48 miles on the bike this morning, longest ride since last august bit of a grind into a headwind on the way home.  Night shift for me this week but on the positive side gives me chance to get some doubles in.

2old - Great pacing on your marathon, quick stuff from your boy. 1st in age group though - congrats to you.

Nell - Good pace on your 5 miler.

AA - enjoy your hols.

Chick - Hope you're over it sounds nasty.

Two  5 mile runs this week , a little slower than first, still feeling hip a little but nothing major.  3 open water swims this week including 2k last night in 47 mins which I was very happy with.  And forgot to mention, confirmed my deferred place for VLM 2016.

2old -  Never in doubt was it.  Enjoy.

Freemers - Congrats on the YKW.  You're running well,  good luck with the 10K, I reckon your PB is under serious threat

AA - Hope the swim went well, take it easy with the calf, you racing much before Maidenhead?

O4S - That is quick cycling, yeah cotswold water park is where I go, 3 lakes available for ow swimming.

Nell - The way you are running I reckon any of your PB's will be under threat.

Lots of swimming cycling for me this week including 2k in the lake this morning followed by 25 miles on the bike in the rain, ran 3 miles on thursday and even though ache afterwards nothing since so going to try 5 tomorrow.

nell - Well done on completing Edinburgh, like I said after VLM you had nothing to prove, that's a nightmare getting a headwind in the last miles, still a good time, I'd take it any day.

O4S - awesome madness, loved the report.

Chick - Bad time for you, speedy recovery to you and your dad.

2old - busy and training well as always.

Still no running for me, determined to go pain free before trying again, physio on Monday see what he has to say.  Lots of swimming and cycling,  core and strength.  Swam 2.5k continuous  in the pool yesterday in just over the hour, so v happy as this time last year could n't even string 2 lengths together.

I had to defer my 2015 VLM place, has anyone in the same position received their 2016 entry form?
