Afternoon all.

Just another jump in to let you know I'm alive.

Had a fall while running a few weeks ago and cracked/ bruised a rib or too - didn't bother with x-ray's etc - Doc said not a lot of point as there isn't much to do but wait. This is about the only injury that can stop you running and swimming. As a result the cycling got a good shot!!

Am back running, but just starting back at the swimming but not sure if ready yet for the water!!. 

I did manage a 5/20/3 k duathlon on Saturday and survived ok.

Training generally getting better overall though.

A few mentions for St Patrick's Day yesterday I see - Don't like it myself. The best St Patrick's day's I had were when I lived outside Ireland. Here, though its all very plastic, put on and used as an excuse to get pissed up!! Streets on Paddy's night become a no go zone in some parts - dodge the puke and broken bottles and trip over a body sort of thing!! - Oh did I say I work for the tourist board.

Now don't get me wrong - Other days aren't like this - its a great place most of the time - come and enjoy - just not on St Patrick's Day - you'd have a better time in any big City in the World in the right venue! 

Hope everyone good!

Chick - the easy week will do wonders!!

LMH - are you nearly ready for VLM

Nice to see Gobi taking it easy!

Afternoon all.

A quick jump in to say that I'm still alive, busy busy though!!

3 hr turbo D&D

Don - Nice day out.

Did another 3.5/20/3.5 k duo last week - same course as January. over a minute faster so happy with that.

Next out on 15 March for a 5/20/5. This race was supposed to be today but was postponed for two weeks. This leaves me with races 3 weeks in a row. Something will have to go I think?

LMH - whats next on your radar - anything before VLM?.

Anyone (other than LMH) doing London??

Off to a football game tonight with a suspect enough crowd for leading me down the road to drinking too much - I only get out the odd time! - & long run planned for tomorrow!?!?!? FFS (that abreviation doesn't need much working out!!

LMH - I think about both - depends on the session. Mainly time though. It just happened that I was in the 90's and decided that 100 would be a good target. Session was to be 3hrs, ended at 3hrs and a few minutes.

Pammie - I'm always telling OH how tough!!!!

LMH - regarding the Davina thing most of it is typical celebrity distance stuff with a full support team and is a matter of going through the motions. Regarding the swim I say fair play - I deffo would not have fancied getting in that freezing lake and swimming 1 1/2 miles!!.

100k d&d on Turbo while watching 1992 and 201o Kona Ironman Tri on Youtube.

Keep it quiet but is the weather is improving???

OH - hope you enjoyed the dip.

4 miles ran of course.

Pammie - only slight damage thank god - Brand new Pool in New Ross had its roof blown off though (not even officially opened yet) - not good for those who use it daily - its closed now for the foreseeable!!
