It's a good mag. Much more in depth writing than the other mags with interesting articles like Triathlon Heresies and a great focus on races and people which nicely captures how the sport can influence all areas of your life. I get through 220 and the others of that type much more quickly than Triathlete Europe.

It also doesn't bother me that some of the content is obviously an Anglicised version of what was orignally intended for the American market as I quite like difference in style and philosophy, it makes interesting reading. see conversation

I'm thinking the way to ease the pain will be to treat myself to some serious carbon bike porn see conversation

My God Conehead how the hell did you eat that!!!

So following Coneheads advice I've upped my winter calorific intake today with

1 slice of chocolate cake
1 slice of lemon drizzle cake
3 chocolate biscuits
2 chocolate cornflake thingamys

Actually this thread touches on from something I've been pondering. I really think I don't eat enough but find it hard to increase the quantity as I've always eaten very lightly. I did a test and counted calories on a couple of normal days and it was struggling to top 2,000. If I up the training at all i get a feeling of fatigue after a few days. Time to sort out the diet I think. see conversation

I guess there are loads of different reasons for entering and all sorts of reasons people can get in difficulty but I just don't understand how someone can enter these things without training. I mean surely you read up a bit about what you're going to do? Do they massively over-estimate their abilities or do they seriously not realise how hard it will be?

I'm starting my season next year and have been teaching myself to swim for a while, it's going slowly and I've got to put many many more hours in and in a large part this is driven by pure fear. When I think about my first OW competitive swim I'm seriously terrified.....but in a great way see conversation

Ummmm, yesterday

A bowl of chicken soup with 4 x wholemeal bread
2 peanut butter sandwiches

Today so far

A bowl of crunchy nut cornflakes and 2 wholemeal toast

I think I a) need to increase my calorie intake b) go buy a shed load of crisps, chocolate and double whipped cream, mix it all together and feel nauseous for the rest of the day see conversation
