Redhead - my swimming makes me feel tired too!

Enjoy your races everyone and fingers crossed that you all reach your time goals.

2000m swim at early-bird swimming this morning, didn't feel like doing more as for some reason the pool was very busy today and I wasn't in the mood for dodging people. I shall miss watching London this year as I will be at training camp with the dogs for 10 days starting Sunday.Hopefully will be able to successfully do an exam with each before leaving to come home. Am looking forward to it, I'm sure we will all learn a lot.

10km run with Charlie in the forest today, lovely run, I enjoyed it. Then this afternoon we were at dog club, I did an obedience routine with Nemo who is 8 years old today and showing absolutely no signs of slowing down any time soon. He still jumps as well as ever. I just wish he would get quieter but I think it's a forlorn hope, it's just how he is. Every command I give him he answers me back, always has! John took him swimming this morning, I thought maybe he would be a bit calmer after but no chance. Charlie seems to have totally grasped the dumbbell work, he retrieves perfectly on the flat, over the hurdle and over the 6 foot A-frame, I am really pleased with his progress. Next weekend we are going to a training camp for 10 days - am looking forward to progressing with both dogs.

Columba, yes, you are correct, I chose to go to that particular surgeon at that sports clinic because I knew he treats athletes. He's right of course but it doesn't stop me sometimes wishing I still could run marathons - I never did New York! I am now working hard on doing shorter and faster, the so-called middle distance, which is actually a half-Ironman, and the "short" or Olympic distance of 1500m swim, 40km cycle and a 10km run. Plus my 6km swim race next month, which is coming on very well, who knows, you may see me in the Channel one day after all!

Incidentally, there's a group of Channel swimmers who wear swim caps with the logo "ferries are for wimps"!

5 quick miles with the dogs on this afternoon's plate. Better get going, it's looking like rain may be on the way.

Thanks for that, TE. I think my problem is that during my whole life I've always rebelled when told no, you can't do something!

Training for next month's long swim still going well - 4500m done this morning, first outdoor swim this year. Warm sun on my back, lovely. I wasn't wearing my lap counter and found it incredibly difficult to keep count of the laps in the 25m pool, I usually swim in the indoor 50m pool, so actually I may have swum several extra lengths. Next week I'll move up to 5km.

Mel, I think there's a difference between not doing and no longer being able to - I had a hip replacement in 2012 (hence the name) and my surgeon banned me from long distance running ever again on pain of damaging the implant. Up to then I ran 45 marathons and a 40 mile ultra, my triathlon life revolved around Ironman which of course I cannot do either any more because of the marathon at the end. I resigned myself to having to change what I do and just go for the shorter events- but sometimes the longing to do another arises!

I am envious of all these marathoners, wish I could still run that far.

40 mins cycled plus 15 mins hard. Will go swimming tomorrow - my long swim this week is supposed to be 4.5km
