Mallowpuff if you have had the lurgy it is sensible to not do a half but just do a steady training run.

I went out on the bike, gentle 25 miles, did not fall off but at times felt awful so another week of rest for me.

Mrs D, you did well to get to the start of your big race, it just did not come right on the day, sure you will smash it next year.

I have not done any exercise for nearly a week, apologies to the training gods, but that is life. Well Friday night was set to be a quiet night which ended up picking up dad from his local A&E at 1am to take home, so I got home about 3am. Not used to that time of night in my old age. So shattered on Saturday but no lie in as the car was due for an MOT at 9am.

The car passed with flying colours. Sunday's bike ride was skipped to go to Srewfix Live, not my idea of great fun, but Mr Steady and I spent money on loads of things we wanted and got massive discount, LED downlights for the kitchen, anti vibration work gloves, sockets with USB slots, you get the idea. Then in the afternoon the second headache of the weekend, which steadily became worse.

I took to bed with earache and this morning ended up at the GP, who looked in my ears and diagnosed an ear infection, so now on a week of strong anti-biotics.

So this week is a recovery week in more ways than one.

MC, the phone is dead, but shiny new one arrived, so just waiting for the changeover of number as I don't want the hassle of a new number and spend time learning how this new one works (need a teenager for a few hours to teach me).

I need a rest Cake, but I didn't do any running at the weekend, just managed to fall off my bike (another fail to unclip in time) and then left my phone in kit and washed it, so no mobile for a few days.

Only bruised and sore but feel like I have been run over, so skipped this mornings swim and started work early instead.

Hoping to meet up with Dustboy and Soup Dragon for a ride at the weekend.

Good work by those running,  marshalling and cycling to train stations.

I did a 10 mile TT on Saturday morning, hard work but enjoyable at the same time. Seemed very posh with a man to hold the bike for you to get a decent start, had to relax as it felt very scary. I slowed down too much for the first junction then got into the hang of it, sweeping through the others without touching the brakes. I managed to hit a top speed of 39.4mph downhill and averaged 15.1 for the whole thing which is super speedy compared to the usual 12mph, shows how much holding an aero position helps. Good cakes and hot drinks afterwards.

Spent the rest of the weekend puppy sitting. Did nip over to the Bacchus race at Denbies vineyard but only saw one pirate.

Still thinking about what events to do next year.

OMG, first day back at Pilates class tonight. Did not realise I was so tight in my back and legs and the core muscles had gone to mush.

No chance of any exercise tomorrow as it is our wedding anniversary and I have been told we are going out for a meal, I may even go mad and have some booze.

Great thread and so useful for the likes of myself with a dodgy hip and unable to run/walk more than 2 miles at the moment.

I did an OW swim on Saturday, my first this year, went with a friend for their first OW swim so it was nice and relaxed and only 800m, the wetsuit did fit very snuggly.

Sunday was a short lumpy bike ride, then visiting my Dad.

Hoping to get some MTB done over the weekend, will see how the weather goes. at least I have now bought some inner tubes in case of disaster.

Mallowpuff, any sign that says hilltop town will mean mountain ahead.
