Nice one Dean! That must have been a worrying few minutes.

Cheers Bus.

I hope miniBus feels better soon and that everything is back to normal ASAP. Not fun for his summer hols.

Chest x-ray in. All clear, which is good. Pulled muscles seem to have healed too.

Interesting to hear the WU strategies. I used to do longer WUs but now tend to stick to easy running with the odd pickup in there. Same with TTing; used to ride the course first at a pace.
Most of my PBs have been where I have arrived late or in a panic and not had what I consider a 'good' warmup.

Sterling sessions Dachs and Simon. 10x600 is a long way!

Last TT on the Maidenhead course for the year. Second best time there tonight and 4th fastest time for me overall. Plenty to do over winter.

F off today, then parkrun followed by a cake-ride and then off to Lanza for 2 weeks.

Good reps Bus, glad to hear the MT pain is on the way out.

After the other week's chest infection and antibiotics I felt fine, then last weeks TT knackered me out and I had sporadic tight chests again, however none of the other symptoms.
Saw the Doc yesterday who gave me another prescription and sent me for a chest x-ray. Antibiotics not to be used until the x-ray result is known.

I think I've worked it out. At some point during last week's TT I was working so hard and pulling on the bars I probably pulled a chest muscle . Hence the tight chest but no other symptoms and ability to still cycle and run OK. I'll find out Friday when the x-ray comes through

The whole season has been windy.

I'm ticking over here, no speedwork in the plan this week apart from a last-ditch attempt at a good TT time before I go to Lanza for 2 weeks and bulk up on beer and bread.

A nice easy 12km this morning in sunshine. Then it got overcast and now lunch in the sun. Changeable.

Hmm... Leeds... Roadtrip up from the South anyone?

I am a member of a tri cub. We have running kit and race against other clubs in our XC league. No club kit at XC, no league points.

I am selling most of my PSOF kit. I don't wear it anymore.

Barcelona is a hell of a trip!

There is a path near here that is always overgrown in summer; stingers up to nipple height. I tried to creep through it once but realised it had to be an arms up and run effort. Ouch.

Cheers Dachs. It is always nice to support others, but hanging around to watch others often stretches the goodwill of families. Race well both of you.

Nice run PMJ.

I had a road trip to the Netherlands this week. Left early doors Tuesday and after almost zero traffic ended up near Amsterdam in time for meetings thence on to Nijmegen for more meetings the next day. Returned home via the French supermarkets to collect beer and wine. Again no traffic. Odd.

Easy run Tuesday evening then uninspiring 1km reps Wednesday morning. TT'd last night, which in terms of effort was the best TT effort this year, but one of my slowest times I definitely noticed the uphills and the change from the usual wind direction.

Sounds like a fun filled day SG. Maybe that's what happens as you approach the grand old age of 21...

Cycle yesterday and run today - first since Thur 2nd due to a chest infection & a stag-do in Brussels, where 36degree heat and broken hotel A/C didn't help the chest.

Reading back a few pages - brown pee WTF? Mind you, I scared myself silly yesterday morning until I realised I'd eaten all the beetroot in the salad the night before.
