Another Ironman journey
Good luck SD, my off-road half in BAth is still on despite horrific weather, I'm wearing running tights, long-sleeved top and will also take a light jacket, which i can tuck into my belt if I don't need it.
28mph winds SD? That's going to be a pain!
Other than the weather I'm really looking forward to running it. It's going to be a bit chilly
I'll keep an eye out for you SD, I'm number 224 if you see me!
Given the weather this weekend, I'm fairly happy to essentailly be house bound.
That said, I've got no excuse for using this (RumbleRoller) foam roller which my other half was kind enough to buy me earlier this week.
To be honest, using it is reasonably painful, I've got the "extra firm compact size variant" although I swear my troublesome IT Band already feels looser after a few days of use.
Good luck to everyone competing or training out of doors over the next day or so.
(Hope this post isn't breaking any forum rules - ie by plugging the above product.)
ID that rumble roller looks EVIL
Wow, that looks like something from an S&M dungeon (I'm guessing here ).
Nice time SD .. well done !!!I went to Twickers yesterday, shame both teams played shite
SD - well done, brilliant time for your first HM
Well done SD. Great time for a first HM. Especially in those tough conditions. Everyone ran 5 minutes slower than they expected to. Even the winner ran 72 after running 68 last year and last year was mega windy too. I did see you and shouted across a crowded room but you either didn't hear or more likely pretended not to and rushed off!
I had a truly horrible day and scraped in a PW of 1:45. I'm blaming illness, the wind, ongoing weight issues and a general lack of fitness. Not necessarily in that order....
Top job SD, nice going! And well done everyone else, too.
I ran the Bath Hilly Half off-road half marathon. Clue's in the name, really ... but feck me it was hilly! 1600 feet of ascent/descent, beaucoup mud puddles to my knees. Weather was kind -- sunny, other than a little shower. Think I managed about 2:20, happy with that considering the difficulty.
It's going to hurt in the morning.
Well done Tim
Didnt hear you Spoons, sorry, was that before the race? Good time mate, you must have been close to Budgie.
Great Trianglia turn out, runners and spectators. Got some great support on the way round
Thats my goal for february. I don't even mind adding on 59 seconds
Well done all that raced today. Certainly not PB conditions. Great run SD, onwards and upwards!
About a minute slower at today's XC than last year, but placed higher. It was like bog snorkling for the most of it.
Good going all, conditions this weekend have been totally crap.
It was a good job I spent all day Saturday in doors at a swim clinic run by Harry Wiltshire and Non Stanford (name dropping ), had an awesome day and learnt hell of a lot, so hopefully now will knock a bit of time off my swim.
Its really helpful to have your swim stroke videod and critiqued. Anyone that is think of getting it done but not sure if its worth it I would say get it done, its worth every penny if your want to improve.
MAwell done speedy racer types, impressive performances by Tim and SD.
lost my fell running virginity last saturday with a 3hr jaunt over Inglebrough, there was more mud than a Hellrunner event ( loved it ) then went to Disneyland Paris to recover and celebrate life beginning allegedly - then spent the first few days of being 40 in agony with an infected tooth.The drugs seem to be working now but the cold really hurt this morning on the bike. I just need to man up I guess

Holg's fancy some fell running them? There are some nice races coming up next year if you fancy some travel over the hills. If you fancy it Tigger's a good one.
Well done for the racing girls and germ's Spoons if your worried about the PW I didn't much worse at about 2.40 yesterday. Not quite a personal worst but not far of. the weather Sunday wasn't the best.
