    Noosa Triathlon

    Cat Lady, this is the best report ever. And I love the back story. I must have spent hours on the bike while training for my HIM , in a hypoxic brain addled state , doing the maths over and over and over again, to see if I was going to make the cut off times I totally relate ( all except the incredible speed that you have acquired with your training) We are in the same age group and hope to catch up one day at a race , if i can ever stop getting injured that is! Cheers

    IMNZ 2020

    Really loved your race report. Must store the tip about the portaloos near the penalty box ( shhh..its a secret......) It sounds like an adventure rather than a military march. I hope you enjoyed the day and your variety of training.

    Frozen Shoulder

    The great thing about this forum is that everyone can throw in their experience and opinion, and readers can take on board what seems relevant to their situation. The reason that I started this thread was that I couldn't recall it being discussed before and thought it might be interesting to hear other people's experiences. I am quite happy with the treatment I am having with hydrodilatation and it seems to be improving things considerably. I had a series of remedial massages at the beginning when it seemed to be another bout of tendonitis, but for me, in my situation, things continued to deteriorate which made me seek further imaging and advice. But that is not to say that trigger point therapy wouldn't be good for someone who has bad tendonitis, or a different shoulder problem. In my humble opinion though, if you are a physiotherapist discussing injuries, or a coach discussing training or racing, you probably carry more clout than the rest of us. And we are so lucky to have them on the forum and that they are generous with their advice. Let's not yell at them! But that doesn't mean we haven't all got our experiences to share. As I said before, that is what is great about this forum.

    Frozen Shoulder

    Aidan, Yes the steroid injection is in combination with hydrodilatation. The shoulder is still in the freezing stage so I think they are trying to decrease the inflammation and limit the amount of stiffness/pain. This is quite different to my ongoing niggling rotator cuff issues. There is limitation of range of movement , notably, not able to get dressed. Reaching to do up a bra is impossible and pulling clothes over my head is excruciating. I went to the orthopod when I was being woken up multiple times during the night with pain. The hydrodilation and steroid injections have helped. I guess I will have to be patient.

    Frozen Shoulder

    I am so depressed! What I thought was just another episode of rotator cuff tendonitis, has morphed into adhesive capsulitis ( Frozen Shoulder). This is based on the clinical picture and suggestive on MRI. I have seen the shoulder orthopod and am in the middle of a series of intrarticular steroid injections which is making some improvement , but the shoulder is far from better. I am not really after any medical advice, but if anyone could give me some good news anecdotes, I would appreciate it. And if anyone has any experience of when physio might make some difference. So far, all that did was to aggravate it. My advice to everyone out there is to do everything you want to do, while your body is capable of it!
  15. Read Turtles North Face 50 race report. I love the Race Report section here. I love the drama and the excitement of the day. Thanks everyone for sharing.
  16. I enjoyed all the details. Thanks for the write up and sharing your day. You make IM seem manageable and ...(maybe, almost) ....T1F I did get a bit worried when you couldn't see the road early on on the bike. Glad it all came good.
  17. Really enjoyed the report. T1F and T2F , is a concept I totally get. I loved Jazz Hands too! Thanks for sharing and wow- what a race- you are amazing!

  23. Congratulations on finishing what sounds like a difficult hot run. Sounds like a hard race. If I added up right, you still managed a 13 hour finish, which is not too shabby in my book! Congratulations again.
