Yeah I know Meldy, was only a teeny-weeny thought. Selfish of me,since I can never do another IM - unless of course it's a lottery ticket to Kona!

Can't we have a 70.3 as the championship just for once? I know it's only half the distance of an IM but there are some quite tough ones out there.

University research help please

I'm a triathlete and run anywhere from 10km to 21km with my dog. I usually do not take anything with me unless it's very hot. I drink a sports drink before I go out and a replacement drink when I get back. As regards running shoes, I use New Balance, Reebok, and Nike. I don't get cold unless it's below zero so generally run in tights, long sleeve shirt and a sleeveless vest over. I have been running for a very long time (over 50 years) and do not use any gadgets. I do not listen to music while running. The only gadget I ever use is a swimming lap counter.

Glad you are feeling better Redhead - loved your photo on facebook.

Yoga class continues to be challenging - enjoying it very much. Our instructor is a little old Indian man who is extremely flexible! He constantly reminds us that yoga cannot be hurried. Wonderful lesson for me, someone who lives life in a rush all the time.

I have been having a smoothie for "brunch"  every day for the past week and have stopped eating bread. Lost 3 kilos. My favourite is banana, avocado, frozen red berries, grapes, Greek joghurt and cranberry juice.

Swam 1km yesterday afternoon and ran 10km this morning on the south side of the forest with Charlie while John did the same on the north side with Nemo, then this afternoon I took both dogs to dog club, it was cold but not as bad as in the week, although I was wearing my thermal undies so that may have been part of the reason I didn't feel it. Lucky Charlie got to do attack work twice - after the first time our trainer told me to bring him back for a 2nd go after the next lady had finished working her dog. Nemo didn't think much of that and told Charlie off when I put him back in the van!

Well done Columba for completing your schedule.

Swimming tomorrow morning as usual. Happy Sunday everyone.

Well I wish the weather here would make it's mind up! It keeps changing from snow to sleet to rain and back to snow again, at present nothing's falling out of the sky but there's plenty of dark clouds up above.

Don't think I have rotator cuff, my pain is in the bicep muscle, anyone know that feeling when it seems like you've tweeked something out of alignment? I do have shoulder pain also but that is from a fall on ice two years ago. Going swimming this afternoon anyway - if the arm is no good then I will do leg kicks only using a kick board.

Just received an email announcing the entry is open for one of our fave triathlons - it's on 2nd August! Nothing like getting in early, I've entered both of us.

My vet prescribed an enzyme powder to add to Charlie's food for 12 weeks. Follow-up lab report shows he does have a pancreatic insufficiency, so I will need to continue adding this enzyme to his food for ever and avoid feeding him fatty foods.

WtnMel - I'm the other way inclined from you, I've run 45 marathons and am very sad that I am no longer allowed to because of my hip replacement, it was always my favourite distance of all.

Mine is procrastination, Exhausted - I find it easy to say I'll go out later, or this afternoon, or tomorrow, especially if the weather's bad, the dogs will get wet and muddy and I'll have to brush and dry them!

I agree with you wholeheartedly JJ, I've always said 10kms are tougher than marathons. Personally 10km is my very least favourite distance, I'd far rather run 20 miles than 6.2 fast ones.

Knee pain 😔

I would put your question on the health and injury thread.
