They certainly are Soup and both acts put on a great show.

Wow - I can't wait now.  I saw a DVD at a friend's house of PSB live and they were amazing.  Never liked them before. 

See you at Liverpool and Outlaw then.

Be warned though soup, the stadium wasn't full when they were on and the crowd took a while to warm up, I don't know why cos they were really good.
I think take that are blowing a bit too much smoke up Robbie's backside, after all he needs them more than they need him but it's still great.

Looks like you will indeed cake

Cake and Frodo, what times are you hoping for in Liverpool?

I'm hoping for the sub 4 I should have got at London last year but feel I didn't get due to the sheer number of people mis timing themselves and not being able to hit my stride until after about 14 miles, I then went out fast to make up my time but burned out at 23
I had done 3 long runs over 20 miles, one of them a 22 miler @ just under 9 min mile and I ran a 1:45 half marathon a few weeks previous so I should have hit my time.
If I don't hit sub 4 this time then I'll have to start blaming myself and that just won't do!!!
Started my training this week anyway and I have a much better endurance base than my previous marathons.

I know I don't want the sub 4 to consume me, anyway I have bigger fish to fry now
Gin works well for me, as does most alcohol, I'm not the type to live like a monk in the hope of achieving a running PB. I'll train hard and limit myself but I can't give up drinking, hell no!
Tour de France is on in a few weeks anyway, perfect relaxation.

I'll be aiming either just sub-4, or 4-4.15

All finishing around the same time then, no waiting around to go the pub. Great

Just had a breakthrough with my swimming, managed to do 500m continuously and as a double whammy did it in under 11:30!!
I have to say it wasn't the most elegant or fishlike style but I got through it all the same so I'm a happy bunny, only another 2 miles to add to that now and I'm flying

 Whoop! Well done, Al

(I am yet, however, to get into a pool )

Thanks Frodo, I think you'll need to do it soon if you're hoping for Outlaw next year
16/06/2011 at 16:00
Job interviews come first, then I'll worry about whether I still sink in water or not

Cheers Cake but I'm working this weekend. Would have enjoyed that too

It would certainly appear so, I've got a lot of swim sessions ahead of me

You can count me in for Outlaw next year, I'm doing it 100%
Had some crap news over the weekend, a good friend and colleague of mine passed away. He was only 51 and one of the most energetic and enthusiastic men I've ever met but he found out he had cancer over Christmas.
I'm going to do it to raise funds for Christies cancer charity who supported him and his wife throughout the whole horrible process.
So now I don't care how my training goes I'm gonna do it and I'm gonna finish it come hell or high water. Bring it on!!!

Thats rubbish for your Mum and her family and friends mate It's such a shitty disease which eventually affects everyone in some capacity so the more cash raised the more research can be done to fight it.
I can't think of any better incentive to spur me on.
