theres loads of time for him to get the head to organise a training day on the Friday and then he can drive up Thursday evening

Nice idea Seren but 2 probs, 1, being its a new Head just started and he's not a sporty chap and 2, its september a  couple of weeks back into term, not a hope of a training day   We all get pay docked if we miss an inset day too!

Anyhooo hows things?  How the AT doing after the other weekend?  Hope your good!

Oh bless.  A sleeper train.  I'd feel like an Agatha Christie character.

(as in, one from her books - not me dressing in floppy hats and Laura Ashley prints)

But you'd suit the floppy hat and LA prints so well!  I ran it passed him last night and he just laughed at me!!  I've a feeling Swansea airport might fly that way now and maybe Cardiff.....  I look into it...  I think he'd really enjoy it.  He did say the words 'its to close to IMUK' though     I'm trying to persuade him to do the IM as otherwise he'll never forgive himself for not and I think if your gonna do it get it done rather than procrasinate over it  easy for me to say

IMUK?  I don't have time for little sprint events like that.....

Or some other excuse.

I know a mear wonder in the park for the likes of you, why would you waste your time   You can always support in your double T'shirt....  If its not totally worn out by then!!!

You need a double t-shirt? Been putting some weight on since your last race?

Careful, or you'll never fit into your Laura Ashley.

If flying, remember that it's a good hour's drive from Inverness to FW.

I would give it 2 hours, its a good 1:30 from inverness and the airport is about 15 mins outside of town. Then you need to cross inverness to get onto the fort william road.

My sis looked to book the sleeper recently to go to london, 2 adults+2 kids was goingg to e £600 !!

Fair point - I think it generally takes me a little over an hour to the centre of Inverness, but that's with a clear road. And there's a high risk of foreign drivers and/or caravans...

I was only on here to provide local knowledge by proxy, but I'm struggling to focus on any other race at the moment...

Has anyone decided that they're definitely doing this race? 

 I've entered the Wee Triathlon in 2 weeks time, which is a mere fraction of the big event.  I got a newsletter from the event organisers yesterday and I'm now seriously tempted to get training for the big one.  I've never done a triathlon before but don't tend to do things by halves!

I'm on a serious mission to get super-fit this year, without going to the gym, and this would certainly give me a focus.  I'm tracking my progress so far on my blog,, but it's been a slow start.

 If anyone else is up for the challenge, especially anyone else who is rubbish at swimming and mountain biking and not too hot at running, let me know!
