I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

Soupy, I have 2 races booked. One is next Sunday, which will be a DNS, the other is in may - NDW50. At the moment, I will make it to the first checkpoint and no further

You've still time for training up to May 'ecky. At least aim for the second checkpoint. Which one is next Sunday?

Giants Head Marathon is in it's first year, which might be why you haven't heard about it.  It's being organised by a Formite and I plan to be marshalling.

Soupy, did you enter Stratford Tri too?

I've got quite a few events:

January - Cold Water Swimming Championships
February - ChillSwim
March - Legends of Sherwood
April - 24 mile swim
May - Stratford Tri, DIY IM (swim only)
June - Champion of Champions
July - Channel Swim

Winter tanners. In theory it was no.problem. Moo, however, had other plans. I am contemplating entering giants head too however family has to take priority. I may be a little bit more selfish about setting aside time to run.

Ooo yes, Stratford tri in May - thanks for the reminder. That will be fun. 

Looks like we all have some interesting challenges coming up. I'm so excited for your channel swim Caz. 

I keep threatening to do winter tanners, probably walking it though. Shame you can't make it and yes, you do need to be a bit selfish to get out and run sometimes. But you have to think of yourself sometimes.

Is that the whole channel??? Wow.

Caz - I think I am going for the Legends of Sherwood - will confirm on the mundane thread.

'Channel swim' looks so casually dropped into that list - but that will be a lifetime achievement for you.

By 'eck - it's obviously difficult for you to do all the running you would like but, as SD says, there's still time and if you only feel you could make the first checkpoint now, any more  than that will be a bonus.

Do you live near WT soupy?

I have run a couple of marathons on a few long runs and a whole heap of determination. Ndw starts only a few miles from my house and Mr by eck abd I take the kids up to various spots so they can play and I run a few miles.

I'm about an hours drive away by'eck. I go biking round that area sometimes, I love it. I'll have to let you know next time I'm out that way.

I am north Hampshire

Have had a nasty migraine, seems to have cleared but I still feel very sick .... that'd explain why I was really battling laziness today then. Still can't read when to rest and when to push, evidently!

I'm in Wiltshire (by the Somerset border)

Bet no-one can guess where I'm from.

OK that was easy - but the other thing about me is that I was born in March but celebrate my birthday in May.

Ah got them fooled - people round here usually work that one out easily.

Unless it's going to keep you in un-bear-able (or un-SOLB-able) suspense we'll see who susses it first tomorrow - or later today as it's just become.
