cheers mate good summary.
I'm 41, keratoconus diagnosed 15yrs ago left eye but also a weak optic nerve diagnosed.
I wear prescription glasses or contacts for my right eye which does 90% of my vision. I can pass all tests 2 eyes but fail on the left alone. lost my HR truck licence etc.
Changed optometrist recently she's really shocked I've been untreated.

What stage are you at? Keratoconis for me too, about 30 years. My left eye was -12 & had got to the point where it was difficult to make a lens that could fit the point of my eye. Are you also at that stage?

nothing helps me, they put the special hard contact lens in and it made no difference.
my old optometrist just ignored it, the new one is really keen wants me to go back this month for a longer consult.

Wow that's disappointing. Sounds like your first guy should be retiring or finding alternative employment. Good luck with the new one.

So, came 22nd in Sydney Spartan on the weekend. I missed my first spear in a few races too so lost about 90 seconds to burpees too. Field keeps getting weaker because I've been in much better shape than I am now.

In more exciting news, the Spartan Ultra World Championships is moving from Iceland to Sweden this year. Åre, Sweden to be specific. Anyone been? Anyone keen? It's 9-10 November.

I really want to make it however I've already half paid for holiday in Sri Lanka in October. So the issue of leave and of course money could get in the way.

Well done EJ. I am in awe of you lot who finish these comps in such great times or finish them at all! And all in your spare time, that really is awesome.

Bit of a setback for me. Confirmed a small tear in my calf today that has been stopping me from running for about 2 weeks. Damage isn’t too bad, but probably another 4 weeks till it’s healed. Hoping to be back running sooner than that.

Just another challenge on the journey!

No need to rush it, particularly with a calf. When it feels right give it an extra week.

Absolutely.

Rushing fitness never helps. I’m struggling with a chest infection because I tried to rush back training from a cold.

I have a half Ironman next weekend as well...
