How you getting on with the rolling? if you have it also a tennis or hard small ball really can get into some knots. Painful as hell but worth it. 
If your running rolling the feet is worthwhile as well - tennis ball can be used again for that

Not much foam rolling action this week. Still a grand total of once so far.

Where's all this triathlon training then bud?



An unintentional deload this week due to house moving stress. We are moving on Thursday so hopefully my routine can improve.

Dropped mk last Saturday and with that 3.5lb (1.6kg) of water left my body.
Not bad as exercise has been far less this week.

Sunday - 34 mile (55km) ride in absolutely filthy conditions. Then smashed in a short 2.2 mile run.

Monday- Nothing!

Tuesday- weights

Wednesday- 2.2 mile run concentrated on speed.

Thursday- Nothing

Friday- Chucked my bike in the car and did the 29 mile triathlon route. 2 mile constant uphill section that finishes with a 10% ball buster of a hill when the legs are already fried.
Weights in the evening.

Saturday- Nothing

Sunday- 15 mile ride straight into a 3.8 mile run. Good pace on bike and on foot.


For 'Nothing ' read numerous runs to the local tip and packing the house ready for the move. Oh the joy of 10 years of crap that builds up. Mrs had me digging up fruit trees to take to the new home. Madness!

The boiler in my 'training pool' is broken so no swims this week and only 2 gym sessions.

You seem to be doing mighty fine , you should nail this one and move onto some longer stuff as i'm sure you will enjoy it  .... I have done lots of triathlons and they are super fun.
 
I don't recommend any sort of PED's ...anyone who says they don't help with cardio is telling porkies , they are a massive help - more strength is faster. Unless of course you love it and dont mind the ups n downs that come with them.
 
best of luck

Enjoy...... That's one word I don't think I will ever use about this kind of training. However, never say never.

Agree on the PEDs. As a couch potato I thought I would need some help for recovery purposes. I was feeling guilty before I even started taking mk677. It didn't appear to help in any area, in fact carrying around a couple of kg in water was hindering performance. Absolutely no plans to use anything.

10 weeks till Tri day!

Nice work mate. Stressful as it is it can be cleansing to go through all your stuff and tip the stuff you don't use!

Do not underestimate the benefits of that extra water weight. Joints, nutrient uptake and storage (4grams if water per gram of glycogen ). Extra glycogen means a bigger fuel tank. Plus the extra weight would have had a training benefit. Your peer to weight ratio suddenly massively improved. In fact maybe you dropped it too soon. You were balls deep already and just because you didn’t feel a benefit, doesnt mean there wasn’t.

Chris Duffin did every single deadlift workout standing on a quarter inch mat.. a tiny deficit .. but when comp day came round and he pulled from the floor, the bar felt like it was by his knees!

Nice job getting some sessions in. House moves are never without stress but once your in can start settling down and cracking on again - until decorating starts!

I hear you big man but when I'm running and riding I see the extra weight as more of a hinderance especially up a big steep hill. I know it's swings and roundabouts as the trade off could be less power from a depleted muscle but that is secondary when I hit a 10% incline.

Wow, that was indeed a stressful week. Luckily it's a new build (or unluckily depending on your view of new builds) so no decorating to do.

Most of the heavy work is done. Me and Pops did the moving. Christ I wouldn't want to do that for a living. Hats off to those that do.

With a combination of time and knackeredness from two days of loading and unloading, training has been non existent.
I did manage a 650m swim yesterday and a 40 mile ride this morning.
Didn't intend on do 40 miles but I'm still adjusting to starting and finishing at a different house.

I need to sort my garage and get back into the weights this week. So much to do, so little time. Football is my priority today. As a City fan I shall watch the league cup final (on my phone :-( and I will for the first time ever hope for a Utd win. Can't believe I just said that.

Gym looks good mate!
 
Tip for new players. When moving furniture see if you can get a set of those suction cups the windscreen repair man uses. They are surprisingly strong. Allowed me and one other to carry huge sets of shelving with relative ease. Works on any smooth surface like fridges and washers too!

Thanks guys, I'm loving the space going from a single garage to a larger than average double. 6.5m x 6.5m it's almost as big as my previous house!!!

Great tip Brett. Next time hit me up with the tips before I've completed the job!!!!

Cheers bud. I can pretty much cover all basis for my level and goals. Power rack where I can also dip and pull-up, cable attachment for different exercises, bench, assortment of DBS, preacher bench, Trap Bar.

I love the look of proper gyms and their equipment but the cost in cash and time to regularly attend is just too high for me with two young kids and a business.

Triathlon Over!!!!!!


I was determined not to let any setbacks stop me from completing my goal. Unfortunately I didn't factor in a head on collision with a cars windscreen at 25mph. He was turning right as I came down a fast hill with my lights on. Thought he saw me and when I was one second away he started to go. No time to squeeze the break at all.

Daft prick drove straight into me sending me somersaulting through the air (via head bouncing of his windscreen). Ended up miles down the road on my back.

Had to be taken on a spinal board 30 miles to a trauma centre as local hospitals wouldn't take me. Paramedics most put out that I stood up and walked to the ambulance until they got their way and strapped me down.

Apparently this same accident is 50/50 death / life so I'm counting all my lucky stars that I discharged myself with only the following-

Broken thumb, knuckle upwards so no cast.
2 sprained wrists
A dead shoulder that I can't raise
Cuts and bruises literally everywhere.
Concussion
Only use of one finger due to cuts and swelling.

Slightly pi55ed as that's the first bone I've ever broken (good breeding stock).

Bike is of course ruined, front forks snapped clean off. Handle bars now at right angles.

On the plus side, mates have had a vote and decided 6 to 4 that I don't have to do the Tri!

Paramedics took some pictures for me but better ones to follow. Police coming round tomorrow for another interview.
