I've been doing the same - calf is really tight so I'm on day 3 of swimming (which isn't helping totally but the lack of running is preventing it from manifesting as something more serious. Lots more biking this weekend then phase the running back in slowly.

I can't do 400 repeats because I I have a 30.5m pool.

I did some 427m repeats at lunch though.

6:35 / 6:29 / 6:45

Went off WAY too hard on the middle one (:49/61m) and found myself holding on for grim death the last 61m (1:00!)

Then did three balls-out 61s in 46 / 47 / 48. They're bloody hard.

I like my odd distances actually.

Silvio is old and still getting away with more than I ever will.... robust!

Though I like that the Alfa service manual used to give up prescribing service intervals after 90k miles....

F Buddha, I do have a bike with some campag stuff on it, and yes, it's as smooth as silk. Lord only knows why, because the Italians can't make anything else that's engineered to last and works well..






 Nope... me neither....

IF you're comfy downhill on it (And there's no reason why you shouldn't be) the you really should take the TT. The course definitely merits it and there's only one long downhill where a road bike would be its equal.

Take track pump in your bike box and buy CO2 from the expo - there are often stalls that offer a swap for a gel after the race if you don't use it (knowing you can't fly it back).

FYI you can (and should IMO) put a quick link in your shimano chain.
