morning all

valis - oh, bad news on the boiler.

beautiful cold morning here, and soc (ish - 8am) swim for me. Managed to get in and out of the pool and swam 60 lengths with a pull buoy. First bit of exercise for 2 weeks and it felt good

Afternoon all - hope the Ballbuster went well Chris, and the LSR PSC, lovely day for it. Glad you've managed a swim MC, onwards and upwards. Valis, what a lovely early Christmas present to yourself. Birky, we had our silence just before the race start at cross country today, and Mr F went down to the Remembrance parade.

Yesterday went better than expected, 40 miles in 6.47, I was first lady until about quarter of a mile to then end and was pipped at the post, gutted! Averaging 10 min miles so happy with that, and also got to finally meet Emmy. Friend's birthday last night so curry, cider and red wine to recover, then 5 hilly and muddy miles XC today, my god it hurt. Was extremely slow but I did it, and off to yoga this afternoon to stretch it all out. Enjoy the rest of Sunday folks.

well done Kate, even if you weren't first lady that is still amazing. Even more amazed that you could run today.

Evening all,

Had fun at the Ballbuster this morning despite missing the 3 hour cut off at the end of the cycle leg by 5 minutes and having to sneak past the marshals to carry on for the final 8 mile run!! It'll be interesting to see how my results are worked out considering I entered the bike/run transition but didn't exit it and somehow still managed to pass over the finish line! 

Kate, very well done on your 40 miler - that's very impressive and even more so that you were out boozing and currying last night and still managed 5 miles today!

11/11/2012 at 17:47

Evening peeps,

Kate I am so impressed!  not only that you ran 40 miles but the time you did it in aswell!

Still not been out to run yet, have netball tomorrow so aiming for a Tuesday SOC.

Hope everyone had a good weekend

Good morning all

No run as rest day today

Birky, Very sloppy to let that one slip.

Tommy , Good news

Kate, Well done great time.

Chris, Well done, very sneaky should have a few officials scratching their heads.

12/11/2012 at 07:55

Morning all - no SOC today, spin tonight and maybe a sneaky little NOC run. You're back Tommy, well done, when does IM training start in earnest? Thanks Dobster, hope you make it out tomorrow. Chris, sneaky move, with the cost of the BB you want to wring out every bit of it you can! Birky, no Germans, holiday season over? Have a good day everyone.

12/11/2012 at 08:31

Morning all, its a NOC for me today, LSR yesterday was a 13.5 miler in gloriously sunny, frosty weather.

Great event Chris and will be interesting on what they work out from your method of getting through transition the way you did.

Kate great running, really good time for that mileage.  I was happy that I had shifted my weekly mileage up to 40 this week

12/11/2012 at 11:27

Hi all!

It was indeed great to see Kate and thanks for the encouragement! It was fantastic to see you looking so strong - definitely an inspiration to us mere mortals doing the 26 miler!

Marathon was a bad day for me... it broke me and i'm feeling a little tender but OK. I'm hoping to get out a NOC today for a recovery jog.

12/11/2012 at 16:54


Was out this morning for a hilly 4 miler on the army ranges and didn't feel too bad after yesterday's efforts but I'm starting to feel a bit weary now and my legs are tightening up a bit. Think I need to do some stretches and foam rollering when I get home this evening.

This was the view from Box Hill at 7am yesterday morning. Well worth getting up for!!
