Hit with a throat infection four weeks ago and haven't felt like doing a thing since.
Plus the fact my rugby team, Billericay RFC, won the semi final of the EDF Energy junior vase on Saturday and are now playing the final at Twickenham, May 12th, the week before I'm due to do the Eton Super Sprint on the 19th May. see conversation

Great swim, great bike, great support, great organisation, great weather but man that hill up to the castle hurt me....and you have to run up it three times!!!

But don't let me put you off running is my weakest discipline see conversation

Biomechanical podiatrist.
A person that studies the mechanics of the foot.

I had the same problems as you with my achillies. In fact four years ago I could run no further than five minutes without excruciating pain in both achillies.
A friend of mine from my rugby club suggested a visit to a 'bio pod' .I went along and told of my pains and after a few sessions had a set of orthotis made to measure and since then I'm back playing rugby and doing triathlon as well.

I'd echo what everyone else has been saying. I came down from 24 to 16/17 strokes per length.
It does take a while to get used to but it's well worth it. You do seem to used a lot less effort using this method. see conversation

Last season I used a prymid system whereby you swim
100,200,300,400,300,200,100m Then you are swimming distance but breaking it up you can also go that bit faster doing sets like this as well. Rest for 1 minute between sets.

Last year I managed to throw an extra 500 and 400m in there to make 100 lengths (25m pool) for a 2.5k total.

When it came to London I had my best swim time at 31 minutes dispite my timing chip coming off my ankle and someone on the boat trying to put it back on for me just as they started the countdown form 5. I had to pick my way through the backmarkers as well. see conversation
