Odd question Will (as I'm away travelling). Do you hotel it when you're away, or do you have a pad?

IronCat ... I stay in a B&B ... I pay a weekly rent for the room rather than the B&B terms .. same price no matter how many nites per week i use it.

That way i get the benifit of bot worlds
 - I keep my room so get to leav thngs there
 - dont have to worry about utilities etc

Morning all

Run and swim done before work, first time in the pool for 4 weeks, swam like a brick. Nowt new there then.

Good work Holgs.  I swam last night, not bad, feel SOME improvement.  I've got a swim trial for NEWTS in 3 weeks.

I've entered a hilly/muddy half marathon in Bath at the end of November, and a 65 mile bike on Dec 16th in Gloucester.  Just to keep the motivation up

Cheers mate - glad you are getting to feel that you are improving, great when that happens. Good luck with the swim trial.

Need to look at entering some races I guess.

There's a little race in Lanzarote in May which some of us have entered Holgs if you fancy joining us?

Isn't it full? And as much as I loved it there this year I promised I wouldn't be back next year. Once I get the Ironman pb that I want I'll go back.

Truely is a magical experience.

Very very nearly overslept this morning so still feeling a bit groggy  - I hate that feeling

Oh! To sleep; perchance to dream?

Despite being knackered from early starts, flights and running, I still lay awake from 6 this morning worrying about work. That and the coffee makes Cat and unhappy boy.

3h until my next flight, and still no ticket...

On the plus side, I don't have that much hated groggyness from oversleeping

I wish I could sleep.  Keep waking up at 4am.  Must be my guilty conscience........

Best thing about throwing my toys out the cot, quitting my job and setting up on my own - I now sleep every night! Three months ago I was in the same boat - awake half the night worring about work! I have no idea where next months mortgage payment will come form, but hey ho, can't have everything (apparently!!)
