Training for a shorter Tri

Quiet in here, hope everyone is training OK.

It will probably be quiet around here from me, going away and Mr Steady Senior has deteriorated in hospital with a prognosis of possibly lasting 12 weeks, so will be busy supporting Mr Steady as much as possible. Do not worry I will be training as much as I can even if the volume is slightly less and I don't post on here or fb much.

Well done Razor, I might have another go at running tomorrow.

MC, good to hear that the swimming is going well, after all you are doing that part of the relay, aren't you.

Wow Pete, the gods really conspired against you yesterday.

I went for a swim this morning, my shoulders ached but did OK. The sore throat has not changed it is still hanging around, I do not want a cold before my holiday next week especially as it is an active holiday.

MC, good to hear you managed a long run but take care of yourself.

Felt tired and had a sore throat so did a pleasant pootle on the bike of 27 miles, followed by garden tidying up, washing car and bike.

Hmm cakes, yummy.

Did my first cycle commute this morning, 22 miles into the centre of London, bit scary in a few places but when unsure I watched the other cyclists to see how/what they did. I  have to get the train back to work in the morning and cycle home. Hope that the sudden massive increase in mileage is not going to cause an injury.

I can recommend steam inhaling for those suffering with a cough, it helps to shift anything.

MC, if your A race is Outlaw half and you can defer the Manchester marathon I would defer the marathon, Your body is saying that it can only do so much at the moment.

Pete, I like it when coach says easy 50m or whatever as "easy" is my swim all day long speed, then I can do a little bit faster or a 25m sprint speed. Warm up 100m can be a mixture as I tend to go too fast for the first 25m then realise my error and slow down.

Dilly Dally, I would think that a tough drill session then a gentle recovery swim in the morning would be OK. Don't panic over the bike, try to get 2 sessions of each sport in a week then add extras whenever you can but do not forget to have a rest day.

My bike ride ended up as a turbo session and even that I gave up on when the battery went flat on the mp3 player with just 10 minutes to go, but I did complete 1 hour and 20 minutes..

I did masters swim this morning but ran out of time to do a turbo or outside ride, I made gluten free chocolate brownies instead along with getting masses of housework done.

Will do a ride either indoors or out tomorrow before hospital visiting.

Ouch Scuba trooper, waterproof cast protector will work well for shower but never tried swimming with one when I broke my wrist. Got on turbo after a week.
