Nothing cos I’m sick 😢  I have a wicked sore throat just as I take a weeks leave, boo. However, the bigger problem is I’ve had my allergy flare up and am absolutely covered in rash on my arms and part of my face.

It all started when I became allergic to surgical adhesives and latex during one of my operations. I had six weeks of steroid therapy to try an arrest it. It was absolute agony.

A couple of week’s ago I was working on the car with what I thought were nitrile gloves but were latex, that started a small reaction. Then last week, I had to do a RBS site visit to oversee a tech swap and it was very sunny. Sometimes heat will kick it off.  I didn’t feel well at the visit and a day later the rash spread and since then it’s just gotten worse.

I have some steroid tablets to take but it’s a matter of not scratching and waiting.  I feel really down right now and just when I need to slam in some big Kms.

bah humbug :(

That sucks FP!

We all know a new bike solves absolutely everything but this time, as a one off, I suggest some retail therapy in the shape of walking poles for your trail race coming up.

Sounds grim mate. Can you get out to walk at all? I find it's still much better than nothing and keeps the steps ticking over :)

I did 90mins from Adelaide airport today, Z2 which for some reason was down at 5:03! Yesterday it was 6:04. Bodies are weird.

Yeah did some walking thanks mate.  It’s not settling but not getting worse.

Managed a very easy run today as my throat is a lot better.

2 x Yassos in Perth. Managed to hit 2:47 and then 2:46. Took a wrong turning through so instead of Kings Park I ended up running along a railway line in Perth!

14km Run was meant to be tempo but turned into very easy, I just had zero energy. I think the combo of this sore throat and allergy really knocked me about :(

Total Run Kms for this week is only 65. First ultra only 3wks away.   Uggh help me Jeebus

Chin up FP, that 14k is still 14k in your legs. Make the most of getting well & being sensible.    Control the controllable 😊

Hmm, should have listened to my body more closely yesterday.   Ran/walked mixed trail today but just couldn't get my breathing under control, kept running out of gas and then started to get bad hip pain.  Had to walk the last flat 4km home and walked loads more than that all up.  25km in 3hrs, eek! I suppose it counts as 'time on feet'.

I think this allergy thing has hit me much more than I realised. :(

Would it be better to walk until youre well enough to run? 

Edit to add - this is a genuine question, not being a smart Alec

 That thought occurred to me about 2hrs too late :lol:

Plan is to take it really easy the next week or so and make a call next week.

I'm not the best person to be advising anyone on this stuff at the moment, but if you've previously been doing a bit of training and are prepared to take it easy in the event, then I think you'll be fine.

Good call.  Listen to your body and stay safe!

Good luck with it!

Keep at it because the value of core strength cannot be underestimated.

My new coach has us do 20 min core workout before every 1 hour swim set we do. 

Anyone who says they don't have time is making excuses or has their priorities wrong. For me, a 20 min core, 60 min swim and the 40 min travel time I am only away from the family for 75 mins...

Ah, of course. I should pay more attention. I've been too busy training to read Trannies.

Trial Bay Triathlon bike course in pissing rain and fog at 16 deg. Makes Mt Cootha look like a little girls tea party 😉

16 deg is actually 1 deg above my 'can ride in summer gear' temp.

Down here with friends for the running festival....but I'm just riding...and fishing....and drinking

Two out of three completed 🙊

It’s been very frustrating Surfer. Ran an easy 10km @5.30 pace on Tues, no issue. Did a 30min turbo Wed no issue. Then went to run 10km Thurs and had to pull the pin at 7.5km as that hip pain I had way earlier in the year came back. It wasn’t excruciating but I’m backing out at the first sign of anything right now.

Ive had some different steroid tabs prescribed for my allergy and that has helped heaps. Still a bit run down though.

I’m in Somt again, plan today was to do a last big run followed by a shorter one tomorrow. I’ve changed my mind now. I think my only option is to to a little and often with a 25km thrown in sometime in the next two weeks. It’s not like I will get any fitter in that time.

Not ideal but IMO it’s my only chance of salvaging a start in two weeks time. Decided to completely rest today.

The Blue Mountains Hipster Coffee Run. 11k in total. Two stops for coffee, and one hell of an interesting downhill between East Blaxland and Emu Heights :crazy:

Plan B seems like a good option, you gotta take care & be flexible which is what youre doing. Glad to hear the treatment for your allergies is kicking in

Back at it for a week after a break. Trying to get the body used to some sort of routine. 

47 weeks until port right?

Repeated without the rain, but with the worst hangover I've had in years.  

Now three out of three completed, bagged a nice flattie on fly & christened my new 8 weight outfit.

Mineral water tonight :blush:

26km test run. 2hrs44. Hip started playing up at 20km,it seems much worse running downhill.  Going to back right off now for two weeks, plenty of strength/core stuff at the gym.

I might be able to salvage my race but it’s hard to imagine my sub 13hr goal being possible now.  :(
