What:  hour turbo after work

Why: slowly waiting for my bum bruise to stop hurting!

Lyrics: nope

LMH- yup with the BF, he is pretty good at snowboarding so there were some words exchanged in frustration but overall he was a good teacher! Currently planning the next one!

sorry for the massive gap in communication! sounds like everyone is bumbling along nicely though!

I have just returned from a week of snowboarding in France. First time for everything (proper snow and boarding)!! enjoyed every minute apart from the big bruise that is now my bum... ouch!

just went out for a small run after work an easy 4.5 km in 22 mins. Bum was sore!!

I have a gait analysis/sports physio/sports massage lined up. see if I can work on my technique and be a better runner.


next goals will be the Oxford sprint tri, Bristol olympic tri and then 70.3

hope everyone is well!

Hey. thanks for the advice all. I had an ECG which is normal. The cardiologist said it was  bit weird so will go for a 24 hour tape tomorrow and query echo.

I happened with my last HRM to LMH, I assumed it was miss reading then but this time I manually took my pulse to. I could just be because i am quite small so my max heart rate could be very very high... but all the same 180's when not out of breath is weird.

happy training all! Day off for me tomorrow!! yay!!

What: short doddle to test my 920XT garmin. Result is .. I am unwell! tachycardic (for me) at rest, at 95 BPM.. and then a huge max of 200 while only traveling 9 min miles.

I know I have a weird HR at the best of times, can easliy be 50 at rest (when well!) and then very 170-180 while jogging. Not sure how to monitor/improve/pace/interpret that.... or if I should see a cardiologist!

stretching and then work for me


chunky- protect those knees!

LMH- glad you are getting back into it!

I'll investigate LMH

Thanks for the advice guys. As usual you are all spot on. Post turbo yesterday.. Work was tough. Just got up from a 10 hour sleep. Very drained and extremely frustrated. I feel I'm getting podgy to

What: 1.5 hours on the turbo

Why: still pretty viral and staying in the warmth before work

Lyrics: nope

I feel so out of the loop with everyone! LMH- sounds like you are making slow but steady progress mate.

Nice running dustin!

Chunky- sounds like your 70.3 training is going better than mine. between working silly hours and being unwell... struggling to get the time in!


Have a good day guys!

G'day guys


What: 13 and a half hour shift

Evening all

What: 9-11pm work

Why: because I have to!

Lyrics- Nope

my mate is picking me up tomorrow (saving the walk into work). SO hopefully I can sneak in a run before my next long shift.

hmmmm I have found that I have been drinking more and more alcohol since starting to work. Port is delicious.... A bit afraid to weigh myself yet!! I reckon I have put on a few just due to non exercise and rotten shifts!

Snowboarding soon though . My first France trip and first time i will see proper snow!

Orthotics for a leg length discrepancy I'm totally for. Arch support I'm defo against.

What: 1hr 30 turbo
Why: icy outside

What: 1.hr 30 swim

Why: sore legs and training!

Don- I am so anti orthotics its ridiculous. suffered my whole childhood with them and the first time I am pain and injury free is without and actually with as minimal support as possible.


xx love you all my running buddies!
