Brit I was doing that as well today, how can someone that looks totally unfit, glide past you so effortlessly, it makes me sick!!! I reckon the beer gut must be some kind of serious floatations aid

I had someone like that in the pool a few weeks back. Huge chap, huge belly but boy did he move

My belly has the opposite effect

Good training guys n gals!

Kraftwerk ... I am not sure some of these bands should be allowed to tour anymore, I dont want to be reminded how old I am !

If you can see other swimmers then watch them under water, thats where the real difference is

Meldy - my Father said as much. That said, he soon changed his tune when asked if he fancied coming with me. He was a biiiiig fan back in the 70s / 80s and has most of their albums on 33".

I hope he enjoys it although I'm quite nervous about taking a 63 year old out to a pop concert!

Interesting comments about the NFL, I was a running back at university and then an offensive tight end, quite simply the hardest sport I've ever played. The padding is needed because of the full on contact.

The six nations, a bit like the superbowl but played by public school boys so obviously lot less gay.....pass the soap Hugo.

To paraphrase VT'd, it is hard to keep one's top hat on whilst playing league.

Managed to walk a couple of miles to work this morning without feeling like a wreck, progress I guess. Hopefully running again next week.

First kettlebells class last night, and I really enjoyed it . Arms ache a bit today, so not really looking forward to my swim later as it's gonna hurt.

and in other news, my foot is recocering well, and the physio says I should be able to run on the x-trainer next week

Well a year ago I managed a full 25m of front crawl - non-stop!

Tonight, managed 3.8km ....... so maybe this Ironman thingy might just come off!!

well done rafi - when you put things like that it shows how much progress can be made in a relatively short time! I am planning some long swims at half term when I will have chance to spend more than about 40 mins in the pool

Well done Rafi

For me tonite

Quite pleased as I was feeling shitty before hand

Well done all. Cracking day for me

45 minute run then an hours swim. Fastest pace ive done. 86 x 25m in an hour.

Also lost another 4lbs in 2 weeks so now only 2 lbs off last years all time low. 13st 11lb, hoping to be closer to 12 stone by Ironman time.
