I usually have jelly babies, mini cheddars, bourbon cream biscuits, shortbread, pringles, bananas, nutrigrain bars, jelly beans and - all mashed up together and washed down with leppin energy boost drink........ but I've run out of everything and mostly just been stopping for chips lately.

I eat gingerbread on the bike. and jelly babies. and powerbars, and...anything really. Do find it a problem eating dry salty things like pretzels and crackers though.

since many of you are leaving for Bala today, wishing all of you great good luck and hoping for  a few reciprocal wishes for our half at Maxdorf on Sunday too. LJS is determined to race, even though he did a 10km a few days ago that was for him far too slow and he's still getting pain from his ribs. Told him I expect to catch him on the half-mara - that's guaranteed to spur him on!

Good luck on you half UIW ! Also good luck to all the people doing Bala this weekend!

Just listened in to Rio's conversation on the radio .... it was interesting, she sounds pretty calm... good voice for radio! They should give her a spot

Ironwolf - Thanks for the good wishes and all the best to you two for this weekend. I guess this will be an important one for you ahead of your A race?

Right, I just weighed out my SIS powder, one 40g one just 20g; so 2 bottles on the bike, will ditch one at the turnaround and grab whatever is on offer. 2 bottles of water at transition, one a running bottle.

Right, off to check my running legs.

Hello, good luck at the weekend IW and your other half.

Good luck too to the Bala crew, have a great time.

I am ticking over, having a bit of a motivation problem and wishing I had a training partner who lived near. But I will get over it!

Received a new wetsuit wasn't a suprise I had ordered it an Orca s2 tried it on and I much prefer it to my current 2xu one, the whole shoulder area is a flexible material and I really want to try it out now, will have to try to get to a lido next week. If I cant it will get its first outing at the Big Cow tri .

Anyway off to the Isle of Wight tomorrow (I should be in a really good mood heaven knows why I am not ) back Monday.

Thanks KK and Pkim.   I had to bite my tongue when Jamie insisted that it was Ironwoman I was doing but hey ho.  They want me to do another spot a bit later on - after I have done it and been training Louise for a while (not sure if it will be pre or post Cardiff Half)

Did my 8 miler, fastest training time yet. Some residual tiredness in my legs though.

Have a great weekend AJH. 

Great that they want you back Rio.

Good racing to you all, if I fail to catch you before the weekend. I will be around tomorrow, so will say good luck to you all again then too.
