Morning all,

central heating kicked in this morning, that'll probably be related to the upcoming bank holiday then.

Hopefully Dave's managed to find some petroleum to get to Paris.

I'm now in possession of my official BTF official's card and at the same time they've sent me a new athlete one.  I s'pose I ought to give them some money as an official you only get a discount on regular competitor subs.

*Passes Limper a towel*

Meldy got caught by the bike cutoff limit, Daylight Baby also DNF'd although I don't know why.  Seren absolutely got her money's worth finishing with 3mins and 55 seconds to spare

My telephone has just reminded me that I'm due at a BBQ tomorrow afternoon, so I might have to delegate some of my pom pom shaking duties to the Wing.  Hopefully I'll be back in time to catch the 'value for money' athletes.

Morning wing,

Gingers crossed that the presentation goes well tomorrow Hope.  I have a feeling Seren's already gone according to pictures I'm seeing on a well known social media platform.

Boss is still off ill today, so I'll be mostly be googling how to do the stuff he normally does.

+1 to what they all said.  I'd also look at slowing your longer runs down- if your HM pace is 8:10 then your long run is only c. 30 sec/mile slower.  I'm assuming you are doing fast pace work as part of the track training?

As regards the panic, try reading this:


If you're only used to swimming 200m repeats, then slow waaay down and concentrate on trying to keep as aerobic as possible.  You'll probably find it feels quite constricted in a wetsuit first off (breathing is harder, shoulders feel tight).

Nutrition on the bike is very much down to what you can stomach without it coming out in an untimely fashion at either end.  It's easier to digest stuff on the bike than the run.  If it's not blazing hot I'd have thought one bottle should be enough.

What does a typical week (of all exercise) look like and what sort of pace are you running at?
