I was thinking of leaving her about 12:30.

it should take 3:30 hrs but given its Friday and start of school holidays I expect it will take a lot longer.

I'll definitely be there though; I may just have to bale out of the bike ride early.

or we could swim early saturday before the bikes......

my knee has been dodgy this week so went out on the buike today.......not to bad.....was only 12 miles away when i had a phonecall to go to youngest school as he was stressed.........so i had a speed session to do teh 12 miles back as fast as possible.....

there is places on the bike ride where we can shorten it and we can definitely have some rests whilst we wait for Barley

Have a great weekend. Make the most of the weather though!!

I have ridden 90 miles in the last few days all in shorts and a short sleeve top on my summer road bike. It's been bliss compared to the winter hack with all the gear on.

10 weeks to knuckle down on my limited base now!!!

Great training and night training going on, I am a bit jealous as I loved doing it, but hey ho- hopefully not necessary for this year. Am thinking of jacking it in after the deca, I know I always say this, but I really want some hair extensions and the swimming and excessive ragging the training gives my hair they wouldn't last 5 minutes.

Been a bit poorly, but  the antibiotics should sort me out in time for Le Jog, we start on Thursday, looking forward to it.

thanks for that link Purple.....really enjoyed reading it.read out the bits about crewing to my son and my OH......

when i read......
Crew members get involved in everything from tent-pitching, food cooking, bike mechanics, clothes drying, lights-fixing, pom-pom waving and much, much more. The best crews are cheery, resourceful, organised people that the athlete trusts.

..my son said that he thought i needed a new crew :0

Looks like very little time for chocolate egg eating which is clearly incorrect
