Sounds like Bus is race ready by normal standards

There will be final results. It'll just take a few days to sort them out. Everything is done on gun time, so if you're programmed in to the wrong wave it can be problematic.

I had a huge roast last night, after a well deserved Burger King lunch.

Good results Dean & Dachs. Well done both.

Interesting day at Althorp du yesterday. I got the result I deserved, based on plenty of bike work and min running due to achilles. The aim was to finish. Aimed for 4:30/km for first run, which I hit on the nose.
I biked well, but the last couple of hills caused me to overbike which meant that the last run was absolute hell and my plan of smashing it up went straight out the window
The runs were 6km instead of the normal 5km, so a little unwelcome. Seems a lot of people had issues with finding the end of the bike course, mud on road, etc. Plus there was vast confusion over which waves were going first - publicised order was reverse of actual.

No final results due to lots of confusion but I think I came pretty much smack bang in the middle.

No achilles probs on the first run but I think my bike shoes dug in to my achilles during the bike and it was tender on the second run. Rest day today, probably tomorrow too.

Onwards and upwards.

Last year I used XC instead of a tempo. It was race effort, but typically (road) tempo pace.

F-off here too. Busy day and shattered. Early night then the 2 HR drive for a 1hr race!

I stretch after each session, and one extra stretch/strength session per week.

Bus - bike does feel faster in the dark. I struggle to keep under HR limit too for some reason. Probably can't see the hills I know are there.

I rode yesterday morning and started about 0630. It was dark enough out in the sticks for the eye to play tricks, and I knew apart from the odd car I was very much alone out there.

Big front light didn't work this morning so went back to bed.

I've had the odd run where I've gone down pitch black unlit roads. Always fun

Racing Saturday. 5k/20k/5k. Feeling really strong on the bike and hoping to smash the last run.

max, i think bus did 400s session to improve his running posture & form as per the advice of the physio earlier in the week.  eg do something shorter and faster than usual

either that or he is a fruit loop

Pork scratchings. I'm sure there are some carbs in there somewhere.
