It won't be long before we have the Rapha Festive 500 popping up on Strava & FB. Even if I was single, I'm pretty sure I'd have better things to focus on over Christmas.


My wife moved from UK to Switzerland in early November.... my training hours dropped by 30%

Well, my palm ache is explained in fully blown trigger finger.
I can't open my hand without pain in the finger each morning, and it locks up as and when it feels like it.

Gripping is painful (including cycling), not swam in over a week - going for a quick test in an hour or so to see how it feels...

Nasty. Hopefully it frees up.

I have a similar problem with the middle finger on my right hand from when a minibus left-hooked me and dragged me up the road. It locks up when writing and if gripping handlebars too tight, more so in the cold.

Not as bad as you though. Are there exercises you can do to help?

I still have a funny finger from hitting a car back in June; I have also had two badly bruised toes since then.

Paddles worked a treat - shoulders ache now!
Anything that stops it bending seems to work.

Internet says hot/cold water treatment.
Iím off to get a silly old lady splint to sleep in.
Then the GP for some corticosteroid injection, as thatís meant to fix it permanently...for most people.

You just said steroid, and cortisone. Do you have any trips to the Canaries planned?

Go straight to jail.

What, it got stuck after showing the driver your appreciation?

3 points of contact on the minibus window. My right hand, right shoulder and helmet. Started on the main road, went round the corner with him for 5+ metres then just as I thought I was going to make it round the corner I went under the back wheels Rolling Eyes

I'm a bit of a late comer to Strava (and this thread) and I'm not planning on doing another IM any time soon, but how do I join in this Strava training hour willy waving contest?

Presumably there's a tritalk "club" that I need to join to be included in the league table.

First run after 6 weeks' rest. 4km in 25 mins on a very soft and soggy recreation ground. It's a start; again. Smile

Solid week with 11 hrs. Best thing was getting my running shoes back on for a tentative 25min run on soft grass. All good so will get back to my three runs per week, but making sure I do no consecutive run days and keep,to soft grass and trail as much as possible.

My cycling has settled down to 2 TrainerRoad session midweek, a long bike on Sunday and one, sometimes 2 longer commutes of 1 hour. (I only live 10 minutes from work).

Not sure where I am with my swimming. Two sessions this week with one as a longer endurance session (main set was the following pyramid 100,200, 400, 800,400,200,100). My second session was a CSS session as 2 x 5x100 off 2 mins with my reps starting out at 1:35 but drifting to 1:45. Need to probably pace these a bit more consistently.

This week looks pretty similar other than the two extra run sessions. Onwards!

Nice work there, Wheezy!!!
Aiming for something akin to that myself this week.

Swim - 55mins 3.1km
Two swims. Drills and open water style.
Bike - 4hrs 57mins 131.5km
Four bikes. One WattBike, two commutes, one 2hr + ride with a snapped spoke.
Run - 2hrs 7mins 26.5km
Two runs. One 15km jog straight off the plane, one tempo run.
Total - 8hrs
Missed a swim (finger pain), an 800s Run (Commute home was delayed) and a parkrun attempt (family visiting)
Aiming for a volume based week, circa 13hrs, this week.
Lots of bikes to fix once the parts arrive!!!

Managed to squeeze-in 10h last week, despite the Xmas do. Did my first run in to work the day of the work do:15km. Good distance for double run days next spring.

I wouldn't place too much on the volume of hours people do, as it depends what those hours actually consist of.
