LS21 - it may not be treatable, but at least you know what it is. Yellow isn't too bad, could be orange, then everyone will think you're Dale Winton.
I had my monitor implant taken out last Monday, which was fine because the battery was dead and I haven't had many proper palpitations lately. So a few stitches in the chest, which hasn't been a problem running but I thought it best to keep it covered for swimming in the Thames today for the first leg of the Marlow half iron tri. Bike had us going up into the Chilterns 3 times, the run was flat and unfortunately only 20k rather than the regulation 21.1. Anyway, 4:47 got me first V50, but they only had prizes for first vet and 2 V40s finished in front. Oh, and the medal was rubber, I kid you not.
For the run I experimented with a 9-1 run-walk strategy, which I'm thinking of using at IM Mallorca. Surprisingly effective, I found. The running bits were definitely quicker than I'd have managed otherwise, so overall it was probably time-neutral but I felt a lot fresher than I'd have done otherwise. Run leg was 1:24 for the 20k, so about as good as I'd have hoped for.
