HS and Exhausted, well done but do take care of yourselves please.

Matsmum, hope you get good news on your hip, I had my hip replaced in July 2012 and have never looked back, so if comes down to something like that I might be able to help with advice.

I'm now in week one of a 10 week off-season training plan, so no run today, I have a weights and core workout to do tonight, 12-15 reps, 4 sets of each. Hard but fun! I love doing this stuff! Off for now, got to get working........

Columba, my training plan is worked up around the triathlons I intend to do. Sounds simple but until I was shown, it never occured to me to define events as either A, B or C races, A being most important, B less so, C races used for training, and then build my training around it. Our club trainer works on periodization -  a 3-week build then a week of easy training, predicated on when your A races are. Each time you begin the build phase at a higher level than before. My A races for 2015 so far are Cologne 6km swim 31 May and Kraichgau Half-Ironman on 7th June. I'll add some B and C races later on when the race schedule is published next month. Obviously if I am lucky enough to get a Kona lottery slot when the winners are announced in March, my top A race would then become Hawaii on 10 October, but the chances of that are of course not high!

Have finished writing my 2015 training plan - now to see if I can keep remotely on track with it! But as I won't be working any more I should be able to manage my planned sessions quite well - amongst my planned yoga classes and other things.

John and his brother have signed up to go on a trip to the Bahamas in spring to support the England cricket team on their tour. SIL and I don't mind, because we both have been thinking our menfolk won't be able to cavill at anyting we might want to do or go to in 2015. Great minds think alike!

I am very "un-technical" - have an Ipad that I havn't figured out how to use, and my new Fire phone is kaput. It suddenly showed a large red warning triangle on the screen, a message above it saying "reboot to factory settings" and after a couple of minutes the screen just went completely black and I can't switch the phone back on! Will take it back to the Telecom shop tomorrow and ask for it to be sent back to get fixed.

My very old stone-age phone still works well, even though it doesn't take photos, link to apps or any of that other space-age stuff, all it does is make calls or send text messages. Isn't that what a phone is supposed to do?  

What is your favourite tri length? No particular reason...

Full - because I'm not supposed to do any more of them!

Any other - because I'm happy to be able to race, whatever the distance.
