Looking at the weather I'm wondering whether to put the mudguards back on?

Good luck at Windsor. Have you done it before?

I'm not riding in the rain!! Surely that's illegal!!

And I'm a Windsor virgin - always managed to get injured before it. I've heard its hilly, but I'm using it to get use full mara pace not a fast time...that was what last weekend was for

You enter Wokinnum yet?

 This weekend I'm at a wedding in a posh hotel with a swimming pool. Hopefully going to get a few of very good chaps and ladies drunk so I can actually swim faster than them the sunday morning.

Sunday morning, as in 5 past midnight?

So, what's everyone's plans for the weekend then?
I'm doing 10 mile run tomorrow then 60 mile cycle on Sunday.
So that's me done!

House to myself 

Long run with a friend tomorrow, then we're going for lunch.
Other than that - sofa, telly, book, hot bath, crisps, wine, long lie, bacon

Possibly bike on Sunday.  If I can be arsed.  Which, frankly, is unlikely.

Well then. Undertook my first open water sea swim this morning which was rather fun. Damn hard work though and a little scary at times.

I only went for a 20 min arm stretcher although my body feels like it does after a much longer session. Still much to learn.

I hope you weren't in the sea on your own, naughty donkey  ?

Sea swimming is quite an experience, isn't it? 

05/10/2012 at 14:00
NR - actually I was although I was never unable to touch the sea bed and Mrs D was watching from the shore with a nice fluffy towel and a thermos of hot tea.

Still, I'm not too sure a thermos would have been much use if I had gotten into trouble.

Point taken

Good boy.  Don't let it happen again 

I really enjoyed my sea swimming practise (once I got into it - scary to start with), but  the tri was really hard work, and I'm in no rush to do another one in the sea!
