I used to suffer with GI issues and cramps after tempo efforts and XC races. After enough of them it went away and I could hit the buffet straight from the finish line.

Last XC season, back to square one! Sore stomach for the rest of the day.

I was in full on winter kit yesterday, and by 6 minutes in could feel the water entering my shoes.

Today was a world of difference, so went through Windsor great park and the local quiet back roads for 90 minutes. Cracking morning.

Sat off, then a vomit inducing 2mi/10mi/1mi duathlon Sunday.

Hour on the bike in the rain this morning.

Despite the abundance of lycra I didn't feel like a cyclist, just some guy struggling to ride a bike.Traffic was crap, even at 6am. Wind and rain were annoying and I couldn't wait to get home. On the plus side daughter enjoyed opening all her presents for her 9th birthday. Where did the time go?

At Reading HM last year there was an arch and clock outside Sweatshop on Friar St. I think that was the halfway point.

Iron, you are a triathlete. A different set of rules apply where any sense of good taste has been taken out of the equation 

 No run at all today - bloody finacial year end

Oi! I'll have you know that no self respecting triafleet would be seen dead in a hat. We wear visors. Ha!

I'm sure I could have divided your HM times by 4 to get a rough split, but seeing them written down does make it impressive.

Did an hour easy run this morning.

Sunglasses often needed for XC. Or safety glasses due to low hanging branches capable of removing ones' eye rapidly.

I wore orange trainers and black long socks for yesterday's track sesh. WITH SUNNIES!

Breaking these simple rules angers the PB gods and a life of plateau and burn outs will become you.  Be warned everyone

Dachs, yes we had that problem at Green Park but found a big enough gap to cross. Badly designed course.

Matt, my pain was in a similar place to yours. I stopped running for a week.

Random story about the pelican crossing behind SG. At least 2 groups of people pressed the cross button and waited for the man to go green before crossing. Even though the runners were still tightly packed.
The guy cycling up the road got a shock too.

Matt, sounds like what I think I had, Peroneal Tendonitis. Where one of the tendons on the outside of the foot gets squashed. It went after a week.

Here is our protagonist at the weekend.

One day I'll work out how to use photo software to get a small but usable picture.
