  • 70 miles biked today. Very enjoyable, but had to stop and buy a sandwich at 50 miles as I had a mad craving for something savoury.

    Pay day on Thursday = chamois cream image

  • I'm not sure thats a good substitute for sarnies  image

  • Less fat than mayo

  • Hope everyone's training is going well.

    I've got a dilemma... I have ITBS and the Outlaw Half is coming up on Sunday. Does anyone know any quick relief for ITBS? I've searched online but just interested to know peoples experiences. I've just bought a foam roller and an IT band compression strap.

    On sunday I was out for a 70 miler but only ended up doing 26 miles due to really bad pain in my knee. I'm really concerned I won't be able to do the Outlaw Half on sunday, I've been looking forward to it as much as my iron distance race in July.

  • Evening ladies. Nice riding Nursey  image

     

  • Cheers SD.  Any news on the job front?

  • Not yet. image

    Sent my CV to a couple of mates who work offshore & uploaded it to an offshore careers website tonight.

  • Budgie, give it a go. The only thing that really works is rest and rollering.

  • Budgie, you could go and see Becky Schofield from Trianglia. She has a place at the top of hall road. 

    With my IT band issue during the great barrow challenge. I managed to get through day 2 & 3 riding very gently. A massage i had on the evening after day 3 made the final day a lot more bearable. swimming you'll be fine. Run/ walk if needs be.

    Use your foam roller as much as you can on it. That will really help. there are also some good stretches you can do on it here http://www.sportsinjuryclinic.net/sport-injuries/knee-pain/iliotibial-band-syndrome/stretching-exercises-itb-syndrome

    Ibruprofen also helped image good luck matey. 

  • G Day all

     

    Im still crocked with a calf injury image

    0:20 - core and stretch

    Good to hear. I had 2 weeks off running, but turbo'd hard the first week. I couldn't believe that after 1 day I could walk normally first thing. Then after 1 5km run I'm doing the robocop mince straight out of bed. How is this fun?

    Mine is improving and i have another physio apointment on Fridays ... so hopefully i'll get the nod for a full on June

  • Thanks for the advice SD and IronCat, will keep resting, taking ibroprufen, stretching and rollering! Fingers crossed it will become bearable image

  • Budgie, if all else fails, I got a deep massage on it with one physio holding me down with the other massaging the band; it hurt like hell and the area was bruised after but since then I've had no problems with it. 

    I would do this after the race though!

  • Just over 2000m open water swim done in 55 mins tonight image 

  • Well done Sossige ... bit chilly?image

  • Thanks for the advice SumoSue. I'm lucky enough to have a trainee physio in the house, so I'll ask if he can give me one of those.

    Well done SD.

  • Think i'm becoming immune to swimming in cold lakes now Melds, 13 degrees & didnt find it bad at all.

    Still cant believe i had to wear a woolly hat to come to work this morning & it's nearly June though image

     

  • I Watson that lake for an hour and a half last night. Bring on Sunday image

  • someone else posting from an iphone ??    image

    I shall be in HPP tomorrow for approx 14 mins .... that might be enough !!

  • Are you doing the Outlaw Half on Sunday AliBear?

  • Have a good one budgie. I see simon has the trianglia camp set up already

  • Cheers Sossige, looking forward to it. Nerves are starting to kick in a bit now though image

  • 2hrs 42min run this afternoon.

    Just realised that my chat has gone from,"I'm doing an ironman next year", to,"I'm doing an ironman in July", to,"I'm doing an ironman next month" image !

  • Its soon come round Nursey image  resistance to an IM 2013 was futile 

    got my half ironman next weekend with DTT. Looking forward to the swim & bike. No idea whats going to happen on the run as i havent ran since The Slateman. 

  • You'll be nicely rested for the run then Sossige!

    I think I have had enough rest after Lanza, when I start eyeing up the hoover on succesive days I knw its time to get back to business  image

  • Morning Melds.
