I swam in a rash vest & trunks + wetsuit. Got changed into monaco tri shorts and long socks for the bike. Then for the run changed socks and shorts (to runners' short shorts).
Waaay to much time in T1 and T2.
This is my plan i think

I wouldn't spend so long in T1 or T2
I'd probably stick to the same shorts, but throw a pair of running shorts in T2 bag just incase. Same with socks. The rash vest meant my neck didn't chafe, so if that could be sorted I'd swim in the monaco too.
Great effort, RP - trying to build back up the running miles for my mara in Apr, so up at 5 for 8.75 miles this morning, and a full 3k swim set after work.
Dead sleepy now, mind!
Swam the full distance yesterday though my arms were really aching after an hour.
2.5 hour run this morning. Not looking forward to my long bike on sunday. Might make it a bit shorter under the pretext of being around at home in case I'm needed to help with dinner
Wait and see what the weather is really like , if it's awful Turbo it.
Brcik session done this morning and 45 min run at lunch time which gave work colleagues a good giggle as my face is bright red. i could audition for the enw MArvel movie the Red Skull, wouldn't need any make up!
I went out in the rain yesterday EP. My husband said not to as weather was horrible but I did because I worry about what the weather will be like on the day. This is England after all
I don't know what the weather's like where you live but I'd opt for no 2
agree with ridge.stay out in the rain as long as you can......it i the hard rides that will make you stronger
About 50 minutes in teh pool today, 2100m.
I know its well under what Fink is wanting right now, but bugge rme it was about the best swim session I've had. Ever.
Guess it shows what a good coach can do.
Very happy to feel goood about swimming again, and i didn't feel battered at the end. I might just survive until the run after all

Really want a self pitying moan, but will leave it at that was a crap week of training! Legs felt heavy on the runs, no swimming due to work and binned this morning's bike after 75 minutes on the turbo as I knew my girls were playing in the house and I hadn't seen them in 3 days! Anyone joining me in the wussy corner or are you all going to compound my misery with tales of 100mile bike rides in glorious sun with tailwinds the entire way?
Write it up, learn from it and move on. It is now behind you so keep lookind forward. Over on the shorter tri thread we've been discussing family and training. Its never easy!

wouldn't dream of it (it was headwinds the entire way) Don't blame you for taking time off with your daughters though, got to be done sometimes,, I'm glad its getting lighter mornings as didn't feel so bad heading off this morning knowing rest of family would still be in bad for at least half my ride.
Pixie, I moved where I am now about the same time and also have trouble working out routes that avoid the major roads, wish I was back where I grew up when it comes to working out cycle routes. been on a few nice rides with tri club but can never remember the route when Im on my own.
