SD, good effort!  Just a thought (for everyone): is stuff ever nicked?  Reading about you stuffing your Garmin in one shoe and bike computer in the other, I couldn't help thinking that it'd be tragic if things did go missing at these events.  Just wondering if that's ever happened to anyone.  Doubt I'll even both with my Garmin for my first sprint (bloody thing's playing up anyway).

I'm feeling a bit odd having the only 'normal' name on here, so thanks to Gastank I'm about to become DimTimTris.  Farewell, Tim Lebbon.

Dim good show!!!

All - I have friend who has entered the virgin London tri sprint BUT is threatening to pull out because he hasn't start working on his swim yet... He can swim but not FC - I want to point him at a blog to give him some inspiration - who of you started from zero swimming ability or limited swimming ability and did a race in say 12 - 15 weeks (he can run and bike, so really it's mind over matter from my view) I think he just lacks confidence

I couldnt swim 25m front crawl a couple of months ago. Did 40 out of my 64 lengths front crawl tonight

& without my nose clip. That was a big part of me getting better at it. I could concentrate more on the stroke without worrying about snorting water. Technique must have improved for me to do tonights session without snorting water.

I've still got a long long way to go though. Probably going tomhave a crack at doing my next Tri front crawl. I can always change to breaststroke if it goes wrong.

The sweatpants are probably IronDonkeys, he's been having digestive issues this weekend.

True. Have spent some quality time on the throne in the past 12 hours. Seems appropriate given the nature of the weekend.
