Feck me Siggy, you've just descibed me!

I have a mentee at last.  Now I don't feel like a social outcast.

By not going long next year and a few things becoming calmer this end, I might actually find time to talk to him too.

Mouse you could mentor me


(caveat - I'm not intending to do one but the sentiment is there)


I did actually observe PS's laid back approach to this event (swim a couple of times, ride a bit more than normal but no training plan as such....   running... well I'm on week 2 of C25K and have trained more than him) and think if he finishes maybe I should consider this...

You were perfect for me M..o.use, as I was also a bit busy to listen .  Seriously though, the level of communication was spot on as I was relying your technical expertise, and when I asked that's exactly what you gave me, in spades. 

Someone is very lucky to scoop you.

N'awww VT'd you're too kind.

VT'd - have you got someone else for next year, or do you want another year stuck with me?  I promise I'll do a better job.  I just can't get on all the threads all the time and communication has to be more mentee driven via PMs and e-mail.

Madge - for what might you like to be mentored.  I'd love to mentor you. 

Actually, I bet you're a stubborn cow.

Match made in heaven VT'd?!!

Oh and Foo, spot on mate!!

Flat Foo..  !!

10/07/2012 at 22:29

Stubborn? Moi?  I prefer to think of it as I know my own mind

Like Madge, I think I might need a mentor, but as I don't quite know exactly what I want to do, I don't know who to approach

Foo means something naughty where I come from Siggy, basically you're calling him a .......

Madge -

Schmunkee more times than I can count I have offered to kick your arse, I take it from the lack of takeuppance you dont want it kicked that much

I am too scared of you, Melds. I would be going from one extreme to another in mentors

I will PM you tomorrow and let you know what and how I am thinking re Tri and running

Yes please M..o.use.  I really missed meeting you and feel a bit guilty that I had to eat the speciality irish chocolates that I had bought you .

They weren't really special, just maltesers dunked in guinness .

I need to arrive in better shape than i did at Outlaw.  I have the stubborness and the drive, but I got a bit carried away in the fink build phase and picked up that stupid injury.  That buggered up my run and perhaps added over an hour to my target time.

So I'll do as I'm told, and I'll not shy away from the 'noisy' table this time round.

Evening, I haven't thought any more about trying to find a willing volunteer to mentor me yet as I haven't quite decided on my plans.

I might IM next year, I might follow a ready made plan, I might follow a coached plan or I might just sit on my backside for a year.

But I'll keep popping to follow this & see who's offering/being offered.

Are you calling me a Foo, Meldy?

10/07/2012 at 22:46

I'd love to mentor you, Schmunks, if Meldy is too scary.

VT'd sold.  As I said to you elsewhere.  I wasn't sat at the blumin noisy table anyway!!!  And you don't need to put all those flippin dots in everywhere when you type my name.

I bloody love chocolate too.
