2hrs 42min run this afternoon.

Just realised that my chat has gone from,"I'm doing an ironman next year", to,"I'm doing an ironman in July", to,"I'm doing an ironman next month"  !

Something to work on then!!

78mile bike ride out to Burnham Market & back today. Not been before, its supposed to be very nice.

May bump in to Amanda Holden or even Johnny Depp who has been spotted there  on numerous occasions. Apparently the village is the Norfolk Chelsea

have a good day

If you see Johnny, make sure to give him a yaaaahhhrr.

I'm on a rest day but seem to be gravitating toward the licra, must be the lack of rain playing tricks on me

Just back from a week in France, not great timing with my first half IM a week today. Was there with my family & my wife's family, managed to get some nice runs in around the lanes around Brisvily (Brittany) -- utterly gorgeous countryside, did a 14 mile run the first day (beating my own half marathon PB)!  Even did a sea swim (sans wettie).  Kept the weight off, mostly.  Looking forward to Grafman with Sossige next Sunday!

Holy cow, did you see the Budgie's swim time? If I have the number right, he did an 800 meter swim as part of an Olympic-ish tri a few weeks ago and today he swam 1931 meters in about the same time.  That's what I call conquering the OWS!  He did a grand total of 6:52.  Now I might be worried about getting my arse kicked when we do IMCDA next year....

Well done Outlaw'ers

I guess i should take the swim class this Wednesday that Budgie did last week then

Nine weeks til Ironman UK.  Starting to get nervous now.

CLEAT ADVICE please -- as I've said before I'm a relatively new cyclist, don't know a lot about the ins and outs.  I'm riding my first road bike with cleats in the position the shop guy fitted them in. Seems to work fine for me, no issues, etc.

They're wearing now, though, and I need new ones ... I'm looking and 'float' is mention, either zero, 4.5 or 9 degree. http://www.wiggle.co.uk/look-keo-grip-cleats/ 

I remember the bike shop guy saying he'd set my cleats/pedals up with higher float then I could adjust it down (never did).  So I'm assuming it'd be best for me to go for cleats with 9 degree float?  I know lower float is more power to the stroke, but I don't want to do something at this late stage that'll cause problems.

highr float the better for me ... make sure they are the right cleats, subtle differences with some

Will do, thanks Melds.
