Leg report in answer to demand from Red - still not able to run properly, am limping but will try and run again tomorrow, I need to be able to complete the run at the end of Sunday's sprint triathlon.I'm really frustrated to think I may not be able to run a 5km! The 500m river swim and 23km bike ride I have no fears about, I'll certainly race up to the end of the bike leg and cross my fingers for the run. I keep thinking, even if I make my leg worse, it's the last race of the season.

TE I know what you mean about T-shirts, I have a whole cupboard full of shirts I haven't worn in years but can't bring myself to get rid of, each one is a memory.  About online entries, that same scenario has happened to me several times, it's frustrating.

Runningfox - My running has been confined in recent years to the run at the end of a triathlon, or running in the woods with the dogs. I have been running since I was 11 and began as a track runner specializing in hurdles, then I became an orienteer before running my first 10km aged 23. I was 31 when I ran my first marathon, 42 with my first triathlon and 50 when I raced my first Ironman tri, finishing in 15 hours 51 mins and 31 seconds, which incidentally still remains my best IM time. My best marathon time is 3hrs 48 mins done in Munich.

Thanks for your concern Redhead - I'm still not sure whether I can run again yet but will test my leg out today,

Welcome Runningfox, always room for another. 

There certainly are! I'm 65, but currently slightly injured, hoping to try a slow run later today before swim training. For info, I am a triathlete, so is my OH who's 67. I have 45 marathons, 1 Ultra and 7 Ironman competitions in my past but can no longer do long events since a hip replacement in 2012 - hence my name! I'm also involved in dog training and competition with my two dogs, 8-year-old Nemo. a black German Shepherd and 3-year-old Charlie, a Swiss White Shepherd. That's me in a nutshell!

Now that's more like the old JJ we all know and love!

Unable to run yet,

Columba, it's only a sprint - 750m river swim, 20km bike, 5km run. If necessary I shall pull on a leg support after I get out of the river. Normally I can do a sprint without even training but now not sure I can make it through the run - very humbling for an ex-Ironman competitor!

I loved doing jigsaws as a child, also enjoyed playing games such as snakes and ladders or trivial pursuit with the family.Didn't play cards - my mother always won! She had the best luck - always got the best cards, frequently won when she went to Bingo and rarely missed getting a winning ticket in a raffle. I didn't inherit her luck!

Well, I took the dogs to the training field this morning and Nemo managed to run at full speed smack into my injured leg, thanks boy! Hopefully I'll be able to run on it by the end of the week or I may have to bail out of Sunday's triathlon. Certainly can't run at present but luckily my plan calls for only a 25-min bike ride which I should be able to manage,

Have seen that another dog club  less than 10km from home is hosting a trials on 27 September, seems a good opportunity to try again with Charlie to pass UPR1 and it gives us 2 more months to practice.

TE, I don't kick with my legs a lot anyway in swimming, John doesn't really kick at all, drafting behind him it's easy to see he just uses his legs for balance!

Decided to go to swim training tonight and swim with a pull bouy so I only used my arms.That worked out very well, I swam 1200m and to my great surprise and pleasure one of our other swimmers told me I've got faster. His wife remarked the same, so that really made my evening. Also, my aches and pains seem to have magically diminished even though I didn't use my legs at all. Must have been the movement through the water that fixed me, hopefully it will feel the same in the morning.

It sounds awful TE, what a horrible time you had. Have a good rest, you deserve it after all that. Looks ike we're getting some of your weather now, the sky is going dark and the wind is very strong.
