Roughly 3 to 3.5 hrs biked today.  I find that with 2 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of overshoes, bib tights, base layer, thermal jersey, jacket, winter neoprene gloves and ear warmers I'm just about warm enough.  However, it does take me several hours to get dressed.

Just spent a week in PDC and took the opportunity to ride most of the course and run most of the run route.

IMO - bike course has plenty of slow ascents and is very windy - some terrific descents in there too - I'm no climber but managed the climbs OK - overall think it's a TT bike course,

Run is not flat but not hard either - wind is a welcome relief ! Looking forward to tackling it again but this time I won't have been on the beer for a week.

Stayed at Bitacora on same road as Club O and can recommend them. Booked Club O in the end though as looked a little nicer.

I've had to pull out of this race due to work related issues. Gutted

I've got 3 seats booked on the Tuesday flight from Birmingham. If anyone is interested, they can have them cheap.

I've just phoned travel republic to ask what charges apply for a name change and they are going to get back to me.

That's a real shame. Sorry to hear that.

3hr 15 bike yesterday and 1hr 40 run today. My arse is killing me. You could bounce coins off my left glute.

Jay - that's bad news - can't you resign?? Priorities and all??

Mouse - thanks for the offer  but why just the left glute??

Managed a nice 56 mile ride today around bits of the Henley course in 3hrs 20, including puncture fixing time!

Raf - should I book you an appointment to pop round then?

I have no idea why it's just one side, apart from the fact that I think it's not uncommon for us to be stronger/weaker on one side and we all compensate in different ways.  I know one of my calf muscles is bigger than the other for example.

Have I frightened everyone off with my buttocks of steel?

popped into this thread for the first time and read this - brilliant!  Now I know why I didn't sign up for Lanza....  Mouse you are harder core than most.... go girl.

May I worship at the temple of the buttocks of steel?  Currently trying to work out layers for tomorrow as it looks like being a bit of a wet cycling day.

20/12/2012 at 08:07

ha ha ha ha ha ha

Yeah, I train really hard to be so shite.

FeFe - I would suggest that today is a public transport sort of training day.  Get the train/bus and do some core work whilst your sat in your seat.

No - just saving up so I have enough coins to make it worth while!!

If I ask you really nicely you wouldn't just shove an elbow into my bum cheek while you're down there, would you, please?

I bet you'd love to do it. If only to see me cry.

I ran tonight so it's nice and tight again. I've got a massage booked for tomorrow and a nice line up of pain relief medication on hand.

Was Lanza 20 weeks to go yesterday or am I doing bad maths?
