Morning peeps.

First of all a very big Thank You for all the Birthday wishes from yesterday. I was genuinely humbled.

Lyrics were '40' by U2, as that was the landmark birthday I celebrated.

Some of you referred that thse lyrics were taken from Psalm 40 in the Old Testament.

Chris 52: Need to look up your reference to see if I'm still running by then.

Sportaloo: Laughed at the 99 Red Balloons suggestion !

Happiness: Happy Birhday to your daughter for yesterday.

Wabo : Went for a meal on Sat and Mon and then went to see the younget 2 in the school play last night! Bit different from my 21st celebration...
Coming down to London for a few days next week with Mrs B as part of my present.

What: 35 mins steady in the drizzle.
Why: Burn off excess cake calories from 26th.

Lyrics : Yes !!

Have a good one peeps, if you can.

Morning runners,

Scoobs, are you going to tri club swim at Noss Mayo tonight?

Stickless, you're son is quite amazing. Did they have to carry the damaged bike with them? In tri, both you and the bike have to get to the line in the bike section, even if it's broken.

What: open water swim
Why: need to practice
Last hard: Bala (rather long ago now!)
Last rest: yesterday due to waiting for passport and boxes
Lyrics: yes!

Good runnings all.

It snowed during the night. Only the second time I see snow and have never seen this much. Weather has gone crazy.

Aaaaah Melissa,this way to my office,now where is Trini,Gobi and DD. You got the Comrades link? Good,check it out and let us know. We are here for you,no pressure. have a seat next to that guy in the Puma H Streets.

Scooby - great report and well done.

SiT - Does not sound good,SF's are from hell.

What; Nothing
Why: foot was not happy yesterday
Last hard: .....

It may have been my only chance to run in the snow :o(

Beleated happy birthday birkmeye and well doens to Nutty and Scoobs.

Thanks for positive thoughts/sympathy from all.

What: Nothing - leg still very sore. Saw phsyio last night who is not convinced it is a stress fracture. Thinks may be early periostitis. But I am still fearing the worst. Will see doctor Friday which should allow for bone scan next week.

enjoy the party NRG!

mellissa i wondered if they had to carry the bike too. when are you leaving?

great story stickless, i hope they get home in one piece after their adventures

lovely report scoobs - your tri performances are really something, looks like you're particularly strong on the bike section with all that overtaking too. swim sounded a bit scary

hope things improve for drew and scoff in the floods, saw it on tv news - it's unbelievable, really feel for those people whose homes are flooded

a glimmer of hope still simon? though i don't know what periostitis is - hopefully not as serious

what - something fairly easy
why - hard tomorrow
last hard - 3 days
last rest - 4 days

Clink - 26 July, but my shipping is going before me on 6 July and I'm away around the country in the meantime. It's all madness and confusion.

Morning All,

What: 2hrs bike
Why: IMA taper
Last hard: um, Sunday?
Last rest: Monday

Feeling quite worried about a pain in the bum which has developed over the last few days. It's fine on the bike but I can really feel it when I am running.

Scooby - well done at Bude. Are you lurking on the 'Pirate championship race 2008: IMFR' thread over on tri yet?? :)

Stickless - well done to your son and friends. I guess your little boy turned into a man!

27/06/2007 at 08:22

What: 8 miles steady
Why: Its a beautiful morning (well was)
Last Hard: Sunday
Last Rest: Week last Sunday

What a beaut of a morning it was along the river - even saw a majestic heron en-route. Coffee good, run good, what's not to like?
27/06/2007 at 08:26
Morning all

Stickless - Wow to your son!

Scooby - Well done you and fab report as usual!

Sportaloo - Snow - crikey! Hope your foot feels better for a day off.

nrg-b - Didn't relay the message to my daughter. I think she knows what to do after watching her elder sister:)

What: 7 miles with 3 fast miles
Why: Some speed

Enjoy the day all. Hope it's a better one for all those troubled by the weather.

IM, no, the poorly bike was stuffed in the back of Race Director's car and thus ignominiously returned to port. Leaderboard is now admitting that they successfully completed the Scafell Pike run. No precise information, as tracker still u/s (sunk in the bay?) but they are probably bobbing about in the Irish sea, at a guess just off the Stranraer peninsula. If the winds hold they should have easier sailing for a day or so, time to recover before rowing through the straights becomes an issue. Time enough to be fit for Ben Nevis, I hope. I for one am breathing a bit easier now.
27/06/2007 at 08:42
SiT - fingers crossed.

Sporta - enjoy the fluffy white stuff. Sorry about unhappy foot.
27/06/2007 at 08:45
A Vet now, looking forward to race reports with prizes (having become a Vet 50, I've been surprised by the flow of minor vouchers & tasteless trophies!)

Do you know the date for WCR next year?

Club run this evening, which is probably why the beautiful early morning blue sky & sunshine is rapidly changing to heavy grey clouds...
27/06/2007 at 08:54

Drew - perhaps you should consider triathlon. That way you can take advantage of the flooding in your neck of the woods :)

Scooby - great report and a fantastic result.

Melli - hope your pain in the behind clears. Can you get Mr M to massage it?

What: 10 mile run
Why IMA taper
27/06/2007 at 09:06
Permission to be vaguely smug-as 200 minutes said, the beautiful early morning blue sky & sunshine has now been replaced by heavy grey and indeed a good deal of precipitation!
27/06/2007 at 09:07
When is IMA?

Forgot to say I am off on holiday tomorrow. We are going to the Drakensberg mountains for a week. No computers,only fresh mountain air,no posting from me until next week Saturday then.
27/06/2007 at 09:17
Yes, getting the weather right is currently good grounds for being very smug indeed!
No rain in Exeter yet...
