just looked at my cofides pirate kit bike bib shorts from 2 years ago .. the pad is only glued in and its come unstuck - they are heading for the bin......

LG kit is exellent though, but the tri shorts do look a little dodgy

oh and endura is my kit of choice on the bike, esp the equip stuff.  Their cheap stuff can be a bit nasty but their expensive stuff is normally pretty good

Hi O.rangeCannon The pad these days it's stiched on thank godness! And must agree we ordered cycling stuff as well and that was perfect in every way. It's just the trisuit that are of concern

Must add we are only a small club and this is our first season so we cannot afford £100+ tri suits

Thank you all. At the moment I m trying to establish if we are an isolated case, in which case if all members agree we would consider sticking with them. But if is not then we raelistically need to bite the bullet and consider another supplier.

Hi Cougie, yes we had a delay but that is not the issue.

Hello has anyone here that belongs to a Club ordered tristuit from their new 2013 range?

If not can you please let me know what supplier you use? We had productions issues and wanted to find out if we are an isolated case or not.

Many thanks

Hi Matt,


Im in a similar position to MDC. I trained to 14 then 16m without a hitch (a month before the race so plenty of rest) and on race day on a 21m run on March the 24th and my knee went at mile 13.

I did completed the distance with a combination of walking and running.

I never had a problem with this knee before, no new trainers or anything odd like that.

I used Dr Google and as my pain is on the outside boney part on the inner side of my left knee (as if I had knocked it), it sounds like it's patellofemoral pain / Syndrome.

I can walk ok with no pain but yesterday I tried to run for the first time and it hurted within a few minutes so I stopped.

I can cycle and swim with no pain.

I have my first marathon (xc) on June the 8 and I m in desperate need to train!



Hi Slow coach

Similar to MDC, and sounds like PFJD – but it’s not as advanced, yet! I think it sounds as if you’re feeling an over stretched medial retinaculum…..half of a bit a cling filmy tissue that keeps your kneecap on the front and in the middle of your thigh.

Advice is pretty similar, but I’d add get some gluteal stability – lunges, squats, single knee dips, balance work ALL with really good body alignment so you feel your bum working. Taping is great too as long as it feels better when taped, rather than just taped.

Do have a check of your knee to wall distance on the painful versus the non-painful side – it shouldn’t be tighter.

Shoes all OK?

Thank you Matt, much apprecciated. Do you think my marathon is still doable? how should I go about getting back to run training?

Swim Coach by poolside?

I Schumnkee, I apprecciate what you are saying. I would agree if we were not what we are which is a new club, with a handful of triathletes, no official club coaches yet, no funds (as we have a very low £15 yearly memebrship) we are just trying to start up


When we 'grow' I think all members would be 'happy' to pay for the lanes

yes I suspect they dont because they run their own tri coached sessiona and it would be conflict of interest

can a leisure centre refuse to have a private coach by the poolside?

A few of us want to get some coaching without renting lanes (we know when is regularly quiet) and wondered if there would be any problems if we asked a coach to attend and coach us on the pool side.

Does anyone know?
