Hi Leslie
Hip not great I'm afraid (hence the absence).
My running has been severely curtailed - nothing on the road, struggling on the tready - just a smattering in the muddy woods.
Bike is going well though.
I'm pretty sure that 2017 will be my last year with any running in it at all.
Have a few events lined up to have as a finale and then hanging up my trainers.

Anyway, that's not very xmas cheery is it!?
On the positive side I'll be donning a GB age group vest for the ITU world swim/bike champs in Canada and again for the European iron distance champs in Holland. Looking forward to that

Have a great new year everybody!!

Nice target Birch and speedy early morning stuff from Gul and Leslie

Hmm, bad run last night. Decided to do a tempo effort to the top of the fell and felt quite good but just as I hit the turnaround point the hip seized up and was really quite sore - reduced me to a walk on the way back down. I think I pushed it a bit too much too soon.
Back in the pool for the first time in months this morning for the tri club coached beasting session. I was promptly spat out the back of the group I was swimming with and was nearly lapped on one of the sets. Hard, hard effort and shows how much work I need to do to get back to "indoor form"

Welcome back CC and VTr and welcome to the thread for SEdan.

Not much going on here, 6th place in a 79mile bike race at the weekend and only 90s off 3rd spot - bit galling as 4th and 5th place riders sucked ny back wheel between miles 60 and 78.5 without taking a turn which isn't particularly good etiquette but hey ho
Still swim running early in the morning - the first swim leg is becoming rather refreshing!
Out on the fells this evening for a jog round with my (impeccably behaved) pooch. As for the pacing debate, it will be slow....

GM, Breca Buttermere was awesome - hope your buddies had a great time at the Jersey race - the pre-race photos looked great

Long and windy all day bike ride today around Bowland which included sandwiches cakes and several beers. Perfect training

Best of luck to GD and MsE - would love to go back and run Berlin again

Well done to the Hull tourists last weekend - smashing runs from OO and Poacher and well battled out to the finish Woldsman

GD - my son's bike was stolen last week after being at uni for 4 days - annoying

Gul, you need to say hello to folks in Lancashire - much friendlier.

Good luck to KR for the footy - I'm enjoying the sharp decline in United's form after being schooled by the blue shirted heroes the other week (waves to GM)

PMJ - hope your time on the rack is productive but sounds painful to me

Some early swimrun sessions again this week (starting in the dark in the lake is interesting - training buddy wore a head torch in the water!). Also been hitting the bike hard and body feeling ok whilst still ticking over some run mileage. All good

Hi all
Taking it fairly easy here with some biking and some lovely early morning swimrun sessions in the lakes.
Currently no races booked in (first time in 6 years) which feels a bit weird.
My hip makes a clunking noise Leslie, not that I want to alarm you.
Anyhow, just popped in to wish our racers luck this weekend - looking forward to the reports

He'll be fine MsE!
Hip is feeling not too bad - bit stiff and sore but manageable. I think the wonky and often soft terrain plus frequent ice baths made a huge difference.
