Still no running from me.
On the bike, a nice enough forecast last night once again changed its mind. It varied between just wet and pisisising it down. 50 miles and the washing done.

Completely knackered.
Too many miles driven.
No exercise completed.
No enthusiasm either.
I've just emailed Outlaw tri to withdraw (clash with holiday dates confirmed)

Good news?
I'm not injured, just moping about feeling older.
At least I enjoy the bike, and have decent CV from that, and the swimming's a good thrash.
I just can't see the point in the running at the moment.

Sorry to hear about your Dad, Rocky. May he be at peace.

lyrics, no.

Bike ride: 50 miles up and down some of the steeper bits of the Forest. I was quite surprised to survive. My legs finally lost power half a mile from home. I have just emerged from a half hour's stupor in front of the PC. Some would call it sleep. Must get ON with life. Things to do.

I scanned the thread twice, but didn't find out which town, venue or time. My plans have changed, and I might even have a permit.

RTN, yes they are doing the Cotswold Classic and the 226.

SS Phil, they are lovely people.


The last few general places will sell out very VERY soon. After that there will only be returns, eg from those clubs who couldn't make the10 that they promised for a discount entry.

Diva, with swimbling, the progress appears to be dead slow. Then someone points something out, you try it, the penny drops, and your pace has improved by a notch.
You then need to embed this new improvement, before the next new trick or tip.

I get the feeling that an absolute minimum is to swim twice a week, with coaching on one of those sessions. My daughter swam for the local club, they insisted that the minimum was 3 times a week, but as they improved they went to 4 and 5 sessions.

Dunno. Never heard of it. I just get in, get wet, and get out a long time later.
