Jools - nice run at the Counties. I was surprised they were taking place in December too - ours are always first Sunday of the year.
ThR - good drinking and running sessions!
Other good training by SJ and TB.
Some highs and lows this weekend for me.
Triathlon club do on Friday evening was good - nice to catch up with everyone and not too drunken.
Saturday morning I ran to pick the car up. I met up with the club at 8am who I thought were going in the right direction for the car. An hour later and I wasn't really much closer than when I started, so branched off. By the time I got to the car I'd been running for about 95 minutes, which was obviously much longer than I'd planned, but the calves felt fine until the last couple of miles when one of them (the one that was originally bad about 3 weeks ago, not the one that was bad last week!) starting aching a bit, but nothing major. Lovely morning for running too, and the calf didn't feel too bad the next day.
Sunday morning I was up early and the dog's breathing was much faster than normal (he has had two major lung surgeries in the last 14 months). Took him to the vets and made the decision that nothing else could be done and best to let him go before it got really uncomfortable for him. He was an awesome dog and we miss him, but he had a great life thanks to my wife rescuing him from the dog baiting rings in Philadelphia 11 years ago.
So no training yesterday and not really feeling like doing much today either (particularly my client meeting in 2 hours).
