I booked an electric pitch earlier in the year but didn't have to pay a deposit, so hope it was actually booked. Did it over the phone so should be, or there may be 'discussions' to be had when we get there !!!

In other news training seems to have taken off a bit this week with 62 and 70 mile rides in the space of 5 days, interspersed with some running and swimming too. May have to back it off a bit ... don't want to peak too early !!

I suffered greatly with the pool-flu (posted another thread somewhere) and someone suggested nose-clips, so I've tried those and whilst it takes a while to get used to the feeling and over the embarrassment of the wonderful sartorial statement they make, I have found that they really do make a tremendous difference.

PipRam, don't give up on it ...

I was exactly the same when first starting to try front crawl ... took lessons and even then couldn't do more than a length without my heart and lungs making a bid for freedom.

Eventually I managed two lengths of front crawl, so for my first half last year I practised with 2 lengths FC then 4 of breaststroke to recover, repeat until finished.

After the half (of which I actually breaststroked about 90% of !) I didn't swim for a few weeks, got back in the pool and was back to square one ... 25m and die ... which was ridiculous I could run for 7 hours on an Ultra yet 25m in the pool and I was finished.

Kept at it, solely trying to work out how the hell I could breathe, managed after a few weeks to get up to 4 lengths continual FC but that was a struggle, then it clicked ... don't know what .. don't know how .. but it did ... doing my usual 4 FC, then revert to breaststroke for 4 to recover then back to FC, all of a sudden I found I didn't need to go in to breaststroke to stop the impending cardiac arrest, and that day I just carried on swimming and did a mile non stop with 90% of it FC ... (I was like a T-Rex after, as my arms were completely fecked!) ... it was absolutely bizarre .. and to this day I don't know what happened or how, but it did .. it just 'clicked'.

I'm still slower and less graceful than a wind up turtle bath toy but I've finally mastered the breathing. So I think what I'm trying to say in all the above waffle is .. keep at it .. it WILL click for you too !!

When is a rest weekend not a rest weekend ?

When it involves 'tidying up the garden' or clearing enough bamboo to keep UK panda colony going for all eternity. Having to work through Saturday night \ Sunday morning then being dragged out by the dogs for walkies at 8 in the morning also didn't help.

So in summary, I had a rest weekend with no 'training' in any discipline taking place, and today I feel more knackered than I have for weeks!

So back to the grindstone with a 5 mile tempo at lunch today, and am going to cash in my Sunday morning TOIL and go for a long ride tomorrow.
