Do not worry Meldy my dear its only a half and i will take my tartan blanket and slippers if camping in case i get a chill

Max - you know you wanna!!!  Yes, I'm camping - not  bringing the family to this one though. The plan is to go with my bruv - get a crate of beer and when I stagger over the line - have a shower at the Rugby Club and then sip beer and watch those doing the BW finish!  Oh, I've booked the weather as well - it's going to be a still summers night with only the gentle cheep of crickets and the 'ping' of ringpulls breaking the tranquil night air

4.5 mi in the Liechtenstein Alps. Up, then down, then flat, then up. Jelly legs at the end. I probably need to rest up again. On the plus side I'm discovering local beers that evaded me last couple of trips.

I can't get used to my training diary having so much white space. I'm happy to run recreationally, but CBA to swim. Biking is alright.

I like club swims, as it is brain off. Clashes with work travel though.

Cheers Guys, Number 1455

I've got a 5 mile race tomorrow, question is do I race it or jog round? It's number 3 in a series of 4, which if one particularly fast guy can't make the next two' I could be in with a chance of winning my age cat in the series.
