I found it one of the nicest swims ive done....
I queued up half way back and it took me under a minute to get in

You queue in a line about 10 yds wide, but the swim course ends up at 30m + wide - people spread out and so theres room....

The first left turn is really a gradual sweep left so less congestion.... O think

Any way i am swimming 3 times a week, so ill get battered

The current order for PSOF Kit from LG will be closed on 2nd Nov.  It is highly unlikely another order will go in before Extravalanza so if you want kit please make your intention known on the PSOF Kit Thread

Please note that this means that you will have to know your sizes and have paid for the kit by close of play on 2nd Nov

Completely Ruined after yesterday's snowdonia marathon.

Soon as I've got my legs back I'm right on Lanza. Looking forward to dark mornings and dark nights now the clock have changed.

Time to get the turbo out and get back in the local acid bath of a swimming pool

Poor training week for me..... Just normal bike run commutes and a couple of swims.

Severe case of cba on sunday so no long ride for me

Cool I'll keep an eye out for a south park character carrying a bike box and wielding an ak47

So what time does yours arrive then Rafi?  The Birmingham one gets there at 18.25.  Could do taxi share.

Yes, staying at Pirate Towers.

Suppose to arrive at 19:15, so if you want hang around and get the beers in, happy to share a taxi.

On a vaguely training related issue (sorry!) just enter this for a nice little ride a month before if any one else fancies it??

Raf, im looking at doing the White Horse Challenge, same date, I think Meldy was looking at doing it to.

Aside from that ill do some of the Evans Rie It events (Chieverley, Woking, Milton Keynes, Watlington) and maybe the VO2 max Longest Day.

Well that's probably a good enough reason not to.....

And just in case you wondering how long you have to put off training .... here's the answer

02/11/2012 at 14:50

The White Horse will fill the day it opens so we need to keep an eye on that.  I'm doing it as well.  I'm going to make it up that last firkin hill this time if it kills me.

I've booked Weds-Mon flights out of Gatwick instead of Thurs-Tues as it's a Saturday race.  Happy to share cabs if anyone is on the same flights as me.

I've not booked any flights yet ... I may see who deserves my company
