Another 10 hour sleep for me. Feeling sluggish. Maybe a light gym session later.

*blush* LMH- his name is Alex, we have been together and living together for nearly a year. He said he wanted to come with me when I went home. So we are doing it . He is also a Doc in the hospital and a rower for Oxford.

Hi Guys,


thanks for the advice, as usual you are all very wise and kind. I didn't set my alarm this morning and slept for a good 10 hours. Clearly needed. I feel a little less physically stressed.. but moving back home to Aussie in 20 days.. adds a whole new level of stress again! My boyfriend is coming with me.. I have found a good one at last

Sounds as though people are back to their usual selves. Pushing the big miles again LMH?? Glad to see you're back to normal. Your wetsuit did me well in the 70.3 .

Still tempted by a full ironman next year... I must be mental!

Thanks Blisters,

Nope, not pregnant but I did panic about this enough to take a test. I'm not sure medically what's going on. Not pleasant

Hi Guys,

I finally have a day off and I need some advice!

My body has gone absolutely crazy post 70.3..

Now I have had a pretty hectic 2 week. I did the iroman on sunday 2 weeks ago and since then have had 12 days straight at work, including 3 twelve hour on-calls over a weekend. I also had to go to london this weekend gone to meet with friends. All early mornings and late nights. I have no done much exercise in this time at all, maybe a swim and gentle short jog.

I don;t recognise my body at all... I had about 8 days where I felt bloated and sqidgy.. then this all of a sudden went and i feel quite thin and weak. My skin is bad, which I never suffer from. I have had an on and off period since the event which I haven't had in years as I am on the mini-pill and this hasn't changed. I have just tried to go for a jog today and had to walk 10 minutes into it... I am also so moody .. happy on minute and downright depressed the next

What on earth is going on??

70. Wimbleball race report

Saturday - rack the bike + race briefing. about 2 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. started off horrible with my friend being late, therefore I missed my chance to practice in the lake. End feeling- nervous nervous nervous

Sunday - race day..... rainy, cloudy, cold horrible.



scared absolutely S***less. panic in the choppy water early on and hold on to a kayak for a pep talk, must not pull out at the start! I will regret it forever. Water is too cold to put my head in, people punching and kicking. But I stick with it.. slowly slowly around the course, finally manage to put my head in. swim done... THANK GOD


Everyone packed for a sunny day, no sunscreen needed! rain, a bit of a hail and just horrible. First lap is a breeze. Tackled those hills confidently, early power bars at every feed station. Life is ok

Second lap..... ouch... hills are harder, general cadence is slower. Legs are tired.

Finally thanking goodness for the transition sign. My back was in absolute pieces and I had suffered with hamstring and then quad cramps since 45 mile.(even has a cramp in my tricep?!?!?).


Take is easy, not racing, just seeing what it's all about. walked the hills. Enjoyed the warmer weather and the atmosphere. Finished with a smile and no injuries.

completed time just under 8 hours. Was amining for under 8 and survival. Both of which I did.

Sore today, and back to work... I feel worse today than i did all day yesterday. No appetite, have a cold and my teeth hurt?!?!?!

not a flashy winners race, but I did what I set out to and think I will give some more (flat) 70.3's a go!
