Minni v Dubai Dave
2old Next 10K which doesn't involve swimming and cycling not until December 15th but unfortunately I have a 100K bike race the day before! There's a 5K in early December I may give a shot but I have a 1/2M 3 days before that one.
ST: Good that you can run, no IM plans this year unless I accidentally end up doing one, plan is to cycle JOGLE in June.
Today was the Sting tri, swim allegedly 300M, cycle 7K, run, 1.6K repeat three times, swim turned out to be 500M which makes it a little harder for a runner like me! Anyway I finished in 1-34-13, each lap was near enough even pace, swims were all around 10 mins 30 secs, cycles 11mins - 30 secs, runs 6-35 ish. No idea where I came probably about 30th out of 100, it was fun and reminded me why I love Tri and also reminded me that I'm not a very good swimmer.
DD: Nearer the time let me know the route. Nearly all routes go through / round Bristol and a right royal welcome awaits you [and a bed for the night!]. In fact perhaps we could arrange our next forum get together to coincide with cheering DD on his way
5 hilly miles with BA today - just managed to dodge the torrential showers
Good Luck all our racers
Bro - Bit late i know but good luck for Sunday.
Loving the TM You Tube clip. Excuse my ignorance, and i know it's not a big city marathon but how many people were running? Doesn't look like many, which i think makes your times look even better as i'm sure it's easier with plenty of fellow runners around for support.
Haven't been on for a while due to a combination of work and still not being able to run, so have been drowning my sorrows in copious amounts of Montepulciano! Aiming to run on Sunday as i've only got 2 weeks until Brighton 10k and desperately need to start base-building for VLM.
Oompa - I don't think there were many runners, hence why Team Minni got on the podium.
Freemers - Yes Brol has friends in Queens, that they are staying with. So I'm sure they will help them out the other end.
Oompa - 94 finished the race but I think there were probably 20-30 who dropped out. Hope your run at the weekend goes well.
Simon - bl**dy cheek
Freemers - I'm only jealous, cus I've haven't been on any podium, or got any bling.
FRC - good luck with HM this weekend. Think I'm talking myself into Thunder run. I would like ot be able to do it as pair but that may have to wait until 2014.
Go Brolish Go
DD - 3 lap Tri sounds like fun.
Gazelle - an Iron man is no joking matter, my attempt might be.
FRC - So what's wrong with Blackpool? Off there tomorrow to see parents. Good luck for your Half.
2old - If you a make it , good luck, what's the target?
Brol - Good luck for Sunday, after everything it will be a relief to get to the start line, don't be shit, I am sure you won't.
Welcome to New York Bro!
Great news that Bro has arrived safely in NY. There were fireworks and a big parade on in Central Park last year, not sure if that will be on this year with the events of the last week.
Gazelle I'm too young for a V40 Does that mean I don't have to bother aiming for sub 90?!
2old I always wear my trainers to travel in to a race, even if it's the train to London!
Off to watch TM video....
I'm back on my Kenyan marathon runners diet of Ugali with Sukumi Wiki. Cheap as chips and super healthy.
Washed down with a bottle of wine though....
Carrot you need to aim for sub 80mins if your in the senior woman category so you need to train even harder or wait a few years
I'm glad Bro has made it to New York, just hope she starts thinking positive now and has a great race on Sunday.
