As you can tell I've had a pretty productive (and exciting) weekend.

We had our first decent Sunday ride today in about 4 weeks because every Sunday recently has been pretty schizer and we have ended up doing pretty lame 1.5-2hr rides instead of our usual 3-4 hours. Taptap had a fatal issue a couple of weeks ago and is now taking a trip back to the US to be assessed (and hopefully replaced) so I have been riding without power which makes motivation levels a bit low. The only spare wheel I have is my Zipp 404 so I am rolling round with that on the back which is not really ideal. The perils of riding with 650c wheels and having no-one to borrow a wheel off.

Running has been a bit stop-starty after I did the Legend Half Marathon a few weeks ago and ended up with a few issues which are hopefully now resolved. I am laying a lot of blame on my shoes (ASICS DS Trainers) which I have learned to love (the previous model were great, latest model not so much) but have worn out very quickly which disappoints me. So I have reverted back to the 2000's for the majority of my training and I am awaiting a delicious new yellow pair any day now so I can begin my running again with hopefully no interruptions.
Other issues which I have faced over the last weeks are alarmingly low iron levels despite taking twice daily iron tablets AND eating red meat 2-3 times per week. So am now having course of iron injections to bump up my levels to make me human again. Considering I have been feeling fine with almost no stored iron I can't imagine how great I will feel when I have a full load on board. My doctor didn't appear to be interested in investigating why I haven't absorbed any iron in the last 3 months which doesn't do much to improve my faith in GP's.
