morning all

I did it  the long rambling report is on this thread: http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/triathlon/training-for-a-shorter-tri/169733-690.html 

but the abbreviated version is, beautiful weather, got a bit warm and the wind picked up from mile 11 onwards. OH and kids acted as support crew well - the course went past where we are staying 4 times and they were there each time with a banana for me. Was tough mentally between 18 and 21 miles when I just wanted to stop and passed by the finish chute, but carried on and finished in 6:00:53

a bit stiff today but knees and hips both fine which is the main thing

I think you all know the journey I have had across the years with injuries stopping me from getting to the start line so finishing was emotional and I shed a little tear

still giving myself chance to recover, but yesterday included lots of walking and today we are orienteering - active recovery?

Valis - that sounds familiar! I love seeing the sunrise

New home is good but i'm not really there a lot :/ Although thats how it feels like. For two weeks - i'm now in Rotterdam.

How is everyone else getting on?

A'noon all or 'Buon giorno !'

See me and my French

We had a cracking time in Italy last week.

Actually I did forget and said 'Merci ' to a Naples shop assistant last week. She just laughed

There were 'SOC' runners in Pompei, I jogged the last 100m to the summit of Vesuvius. I passed the legendary USSR pole valuter Sergey Bubka in Naples. If it wasn't him it was his double.

  Oh and there's an Italian chocolate called 'Ovetti' ! Honest

We've had pc probs since we returned !Hopefully okay now

Lots to catch up on

Off to work at 3pm catch up tomoorow

Maybe tomorrow

Welcome back birky, and glad you're still enjoying and inadvertently SOCing Gobi. 10 miles tonight including track which was 6 X 5 mins, will hurt tomorrow. Busy at work and looking forward to a long weekend.

MC - well done. Must have been tough running past the finish but good effort to keep going! Will check out the rambling version later!

16/04/2014 at 05:44
