EP and SS, great going. Looks like real break throughs in terms of speed and time on the bike.

It really is a revelation being able to train in daylight. Usually my sessions are 5am or 8pm starts but being off work this week has allowed me to train at more socialble hours. I really do think it makes a difference. Do you think there is any sense nearer the race at trying to get training sessions in at the times of the day associated with the big day, or does it not really matter?

Having said that, my youngest is off nursery tomorrow so a 5am turbo session and 9pm swim is on the cards but Friday is all planned. Aiming for a 4hr, 100km ride in the Peak District. Weather is looking good too, so excited!

On bike routes, I did 2 x 35mile loops today (actually I would have been a mile short so my OCD forced me to tag a mile on the end!!) otherwise it's so difficult knowing what the roads are like and where you're going exactly. 

I just tried to have a siesta but I was actually too tired to sleep

More swimming tomorrow. The bags under my eyes from the goggles seem to be lasting longer and longer, Somebody please tell me this is all good for you

I'm planning to go round the 63 mile Cheshire Cat route tomorrow
It's a bit undulating, except the Mow Cop killer mile, ends in 1:4! Thankfully it's early ish. Should be a good ride.

Hi Matt, I am in the Cat too, have you recieved your pack yet? I am in the blue wave for the 63 miler but gave no idea what that means for start times etc.

Oh Ali I hadn't thought of that! Awesome we can bully I mean encourage each other to the finish!


First pre-work bike ride out on the roads this morning. Loved it, sunny but cold so had to keep an eye out for icy patches but thankfully there were only a few. Still only averaging 12mph but can work on that now I'm actually getting out and about.

I'd say camelbak and keep moving. Like on the big day!

Managed 18 miles in just under hour and half this morning. Kept away from the steeper areas to see how I did on a flatter route. Actually felt quite happy and comfortable. Will be a lot happier when warmer weather arrives as my toes still haven't thawed out properly and that was with two pairs of socks.

EP I'd ring LBS and ask them to fit another bottle rack to it some how for you. If frames too small they could add a saddle one? They'll be the guys who can figure it out.

Although it was so cold on Saturday that the one bottle did me just fine for 3hrs.

Stanners - I'm waiting for them to send me a pack. I normlaly help out at loads of their events so I'm riding the 63 then helping at HQ or whatever. Not sure what the waves mean, as far I can ever tell you start when you like.? There may be more stuff in the briefing pack

A slight variation done in 4:12 so just over 15mph average. Pretty happy with that. I had to walk 2 small bits of Mow Cop, but we did it at mile 60 rather than about 15.

A beautiful day for biking out there!

Run done, swim not done. Now away for a long weekend

The first batch of umbrellas are winging their way to pirate moorings ... They were too long for the mail, so are going parcel post, and therefore did cost the full £24.07 altogether. They said 3 working days ... 

Last call for Cake, Mr Zuvai, Stanners and TJ1004 to get in touch and give me your money if you still want a brolly ...

... I'm starting a reserve list ...

Just back from a 33 mile bike ride, really nice night to be out, great ride too, knocked 4 mins off previous pb for that course, averaging 18.3mph, tired now and reallyyyy hungry 

Hope you feel better tomorrow EP 

I have a busy day planned for tomorrow, 10 mile run, a swim of as yet unknown length, sports massage and maybe a 13 mile TT on the bike if I can find the time and it isn't dark by then.
