Well done UTC, Razor and Horse!

And good work everyone else who is training!

Went for a mtb ride yesterday but the damping on my full-sus has gone and it was bit of a nightmare so only did 4 miles and had to wait for bf when he did another loop in Swinley.

I've been off here cos I've kind of lost direction/motivation after realising Wild Boar wasn't going to happen for me. I think my main goal now should be weight loss as it's getting me down. But I feel lost.

In good news, my sister is coming to visit for a week and really looking forward to it.

Same old competition 2014

MrsD - hay fever's so annoying. I usually only suffer badly once a summer if that. Though this time I'd been taken pills for 2-3 weeks before I had my attack so not sure if they're really working. Still taking them though as don't want another one.

It's been 4 months now with no running. Really crap but keeping whatever little fitness I have by cycling. Will need to get back into swimming as well and try to crack the fc, make most of the time I have without running.

2 months before WB though and no running. Don't think I'm gonna make it. Definitely want to do HIM next year though.

Can i get my edge back?

Thanks for replying anyway Laura. I'm working with a physio and osteopath at the moment so do have specific exercises and continued support and monitoring regarding the issue. Exactly the same for me, weak glutes, strong quads and shortened hip flexors due to sitting down office job. Was just interest in comparing how long it's taken someone else to overcome the problem.

Hi Laura. Sorry I can't help you but as I'm struggling with the same injury, I just wondered how long it took you to clear it and did you actually manage to keep running all a long? I actually still can't run and it's bit frustrating but am progressing with the exercises and hoping it will be soon. I had a hip flexor strain that covered the psoas muscle 'injury' first and then I had to change physio as I moved. I did get the right exercises from the start though but it's been a longer journey than I'd like.

EP - hope everything turns out well.

ButterCup - sorry to hear your tri ended up with a mechanical.

Well done everyone racing and training! Some very good stuff going out there.

I had a week off the week before last as suffered really severe hayfever attack which took me out for 2 days, then the rest of the week I couldn't sleep as it was too hot and couldn't keep the windows open.

Just back from osteopath. Exercises are working but she believes tight quad is keeping hip flexor scrunched up so still no running before no pain. Entering WB not looking good.

Went mountain biking in the Chilterns yesterday. Seriously hated the uphills but glad I went. Was a lovely day with bf and his friend.  Definitely up for more now that I know it doesn't kill me even if I struggled.
