toppo up here in the mountains ta!! 

Tale of the sound bar fiasco; it gets worse!! 

Hmmmn I bought also a Panasonic Plasma 50inch  Smart TV (*inbuilt wifi*)...* remember that bit it's important.!! I was delivered one without *inbuilt wifi*. I didnt want it. Was offered a smaller TV  46inch costing £300 more...was told the direct people had sent me the wrong one and they have taken the one I had asked for off the screen, however there never was one with *inbuilt wifi* in the catalogue, instore had got it wrong, it was wifi ready...totally different!! . Finally agreeing to buy the smaller one, I was told by instore tech installation they could not pick up wrong TV and bring out the smaller one I bought from instore, would have to do it direct from catalogue both ways, even though instore tech boys ordered it from instore... are you getting confused? I was!!  After days of trying to sort it. I cancelled the whole order (alot of money) and took my custom elsewhere. My proper Smart TV will be delivered and the tech guy said I don't need installation as i seem to know what I am doing regarding wifi setup. I save £58 installation fee... plus the extra I would have paid for the smaller TV.....  Obviously this company is doing so well it can throw away *Loadsa money* 

All this for the Olympic experience...I might as well have gone to the blinking games...probably less hassle.!!  

I am Marshalling at Eirias Middle Distance triathlon tomoz!

The Triathlon was brilliant, weather fabulous, unless of course you were doing it, then it got rather hot and tough. Bike course according to some was very tough. I was on temp traffic lights, those who had to stop I took number & time stopped. Asked if it was hard (I could see a nice steep hill infront) feed back, tougher than bala middle bike. I was then relocated to the sea front run section as the runners had to come out of Eirias park and down across the busy road onto the sea front. I stopped the traffic..Cool!!!  There was a free dinner party after, but many didnt stop (too knackered me thinks). Next year lots of plans to improve an expand. Transision down on the front (building works prevented that at this year), it could take an Ironman quite easily. Plus a BBQ immediately after for competitors. I got back to the hotel after Party and didnt get to bed till 1am...

I know, it must be the Olympics.  

My proper TV has arrived today, so Olympics in HD and 3D if they do any.

I've been Thunder Running this weekend. I thought it would be easier doing 3*10k in 24hrs than in 12hrs like at the lightning... I was wrong.  It was a great weekend away though with 2500 other like minded nutters running through forests at 4am with just a headtorch to stop you running into a tree.  We came 33 out of 188 mixed teams of 6+.

WoW sounds like fun Ant.  

I Marshalled at Leeds Xpress Sprint Triathlon Sunday, held in a very nice Grammer School, very nice indeed.!! Drive back was a bit dicy over the M621/M62. I was trying to focus on traffic, yet still get into a comfortable position with a back that wasn't being too nice to me. Once home, afew more painkillers downed, i missed the Olympic Swim Races as I fell asleep...grrrrrrrr!!

Suffering from Post Olympic Blues!

However, not long to the Paralympics

HLad is nursing a black eye - that's what comes of doing the high jump indoors onto the sofa - am taking him to athletics tomorrow

Well done anyone who has actually done any sport recently as opposed to watching it!  Mr HL has been inspired to go back to Volleyball - found a club in Ross-on-Wye - that's what comes of watching Poland vs Russia  I am even contemplating a "return to netball" session!

Evening HL....ditto re Olympics...but the Paralympics will be just as spectacular am sure.  

To stop myself feeling guilty about curling up on the sofa to watch everything . I did manage to train....erm a little.  But the novelty of watching everything on the big screen in HD got the better of me most of the time.....

I did manage to extract myself from the big screen to go to a BBQ, unfortunately it was on the night Mo Farrow was running 10,000 metres, so spent most of the evening in my friend's lounge. Thankfully I had her son for company so didnt feel to bad that I was not mingling. 

Yay well done on Mr HL to being inspired. Hope you do the same with your netball.  And lets hope our Olympics inspires alot more round the country to get out and do. Its been an awesome time for GB and Team GB. x

Lexi - I wouldn't feel bad about watching one of our greatest ever athletes . Keep up the good work re the training.

Thanks HL.  He is superb and it was brilliant watching him win the 5,000metres. 

My training.......mmmmm, I wont give up is all I can say at this moment.   

15/08/2012 at 19:39


I've won a race... well sort of. Our club has been running a club members only monthly 5k/10k race around the golf course during the summer to encourage more people into doing races. As I'd done 18miles on Sunday I only did the 5k and with none of the fast boys doing it I won. 

I'm looking forward to the Paralympics too as I'm going to the Sunday night athletics session.
