    Well been a long week, I decided I just have to get out and do what I got to do if I have any chance of still being right for my first ironman in April. So I rode every day, even if it was really gentle, mimimum I did was 56K.

    The rides just seem to take so long, I stayed away from packs and just trying to spin relatively easy as much as possible. so I reckon after the week I am doing alright, starting to feel better each day on the bike and I even managed my best run for 2 months, in terms of how my legs felt.

    Sunday to Saturday, 520 kms, today I had a VERY easy run and then another, 115 kms on the bike and I must admit I don't know if it is just the riding or my body adjusting to the tablets, but I honestly feel about 200% better then I did last sunday, even my mental attittude is starting to feel more positive then negative, so just going to keep going for now. Will probably ease back the bike distance slighty and do some running in stead of.

    Then I have to hit the pool again...... sucks just being so close to the date, its a lot of money to throw away as well, if I dont go.

    And even better so far, no sign of my heart heading off to the races.

    Well done. Just do what feels OK and use that as a base.
    All that worry and the sky hasnt fallen in, you can see improvement already - steady as she goes.
    What did specialist, Peter H have to say?
    Are you working to an amended training plan for the event. No reason not to set realistic training targets and achieving them will give a boost.

    Off to Magnetic Island for a week and taking bikes. Some Very hilly sections. Will give Arcadia to the Forts a try but will definately not attempt Forts- Radical Bay - Forts. Some 45 degree looking sections, first gear in a mini moke.

    Have fun all you "workers"

    Hugh

    yeah I think I have kind of decided now that I should still be able to do it, I just have to not stress about it and possibly I will be a bit slower then maybe I expected
