thanks, think will stick with the yellow 'floaty' ones for the time being as seem to be ok to ride in, and not sure if it was just an illusion but the bigger pedal seemed to help a bit when having to push down harder to get up the hills (which is a major bonus cos I hate hills!)

Thankfully now seem to have dispensed with the majority of the ebola\Lhasa fever that threatened my existence last week, and starting to get back in to a bit of training, cycle commute yesterday (tried tri-bars for first time too ... they're going to be .. errr. interesting ) and then a run at lunch time in wind so that counts double right ?

Swim planned for tomorrow early doors am just to see how that cardio has held up, then should be all covered .

it took me 3 days to get a course downloaded from Garmin Connect to my 310XT, and don't think I had the same problem twice either ... it just wouldn't download, then all of a sudden without any change it just did !!!  ... it really does need sorting out.

Agreed TJ, Razor that is a great way to come back, I fear my comeback this week is going to be nowhere near that.

So after my brush with the afterlife courtesy of some (probable) ebola based variant of the common cold, I'm hoping to get back in to the swing of things this week, so yesterday I signalled my intention by changing the pedals on my bike.

I've gone from the SPD to SPD-SL as I believe they are a bit comfier for the longer rides (larger surface area to prevent 'hot spots' that I had noticed before).

However when using them for the first time this morning I notice that there is an awful lot of 'play' (I've got the yellow ones which apparently give 6 degrees). I'm not overly worried by this, but wondering if this is optimal or should I look to move up the colours and reduce the amount of lateral play, or is it just a matter of personal choice ?

I've now decided to take my training to a whole new level, and for the last couple of days I've been concentrating on the lesser thought of 4th tri discipline ... "feeling like shit".

I seem to have developed a nose like Niagara, a head like a scarecrow, in fact a full on case of man-flu, so when the day comes and my body starts breaking down in the latter stages of the race I shall rely on this period of 'training' to get me through.

It was embarrassing, I even had to resort to cheating and employing a surreptitious underwater pull on the lane rope to even get the slightest forward momentum, but even then my manic thrashing of legs (with apparent 50p piece shoved between my cheeks as per instruction) still only served to act as a brake.

And besides I thought that the tri swim was better to be done 'sans' kick to save the legs energy

70 miles ... oh boy !! ... guess this kind of means I need up my biking a bit more then.

However am pleased to report that training does actually seem to be happening now, have even joined a Friday swim coaching session (courtesy of the lovely Ghost ) to show me how bad my swim technique really is. (just how on earth do you manage to get any form of forward propulsion with just your kick? )
